NPD Shows 20% Drop

Forbes has the February report on U.S. retail video game sales from NPD Group, which covers new packaged retail games, and does not account for used games or games sold online. Word is: "Overall sales were $1.06 billion, down from $1.33 billion. Hardware sales were down 18% to $381.4 million from $466.9 million. Accessories sales were $215.2 million, down 16% from $256.9 million. Video game software sales were $464.4 million, down 23% from $601.4 million. If you include PC games, software sales were $485.7 million, down 24% from $637.4 million."

NPD is useless for tracking PC sales, these days. I for one, know that the last game I bought in a shop was over a year ago. I can buy and download a game from Steam in less time than it would take to drive to a place that sold video games.
