NPD December 2017 Sales Results

The NPD Group tracks video game sales in the U.S. and we now know which games sold the best during the crucial month of December. Total video game spending was up for December versus the prior year by 10% for a total consumer spend of $3.29 billion. Comprising that number was hardware with $1.27 billion (up 27%), console software with $1.24 billion (up 2%), PC software with $40 million (down 17%), and accessories with $735 million (flat). The Switch was the number one selling system for December. In fact, NPD analyst Mat Piscatella adds, “On a time-aligned basis through the first 10 months on the market, Nintendo Switch has sold more consoles than any other platform in history.” Nice!
