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."

I think that's the point of NPD, retail sales only. After all they still take up the major bulk of revenue, for now.
For consoles, yeah. For PC, I think Valve is doing a big percentage.

Absolutely! I have no doubt that PC gaming sales have been increasing exponentially each month and most of it happens digitally. Steam, Gamersgate, Gamefly, etc.
