More NPD 2012 Sales Analysis

USA Today has more 2012 game sales figures from the NPD Group, following word last month that sales of physical discs and consoles declined 22% compared with 2011. The new results include digital sales: "Breaking down the 2012 spending, NPD says that consumers spent $7.09 billion on physical video game and PC game software, a 21% drop from 2011, and $5.92 billion on digital games (full game and add-on content downloads, subscriptions, mobile games and social network games), a 16% increase. An additional $1.79 billion came from spending on used and rented games, NPD says. Total spending in 2011 amounted to $16.34 billion, NPD says. The increase in digital game spending in 2012 wasn't enough to offset decreased physical game spending."
