For completeness, a few days before the opening of hostilities on American soil and the madness of the press conferences of the main publishers and manufacturers on the market, we invite you to discover the sales results for the month of May in the USA. The analysis firm NPD teaches us that consumers spent $528.6 million on new physical products related to games. This represents an increase of 4% compared to the same period in 2015 with these $509.3 million.

But this performance also marks a rebound in the sector after a month in April which showed a drop of 15% compared to last year. In detail, we discover that hardware generated $137,700,000, a drop of 10% compared to May 2015. Games are taking advantage of the release of behemoths such as Uncharted 4, Doom and Overwatch to afford an increase of 18% and post a nice $241,900,000. Unfortunately, the same is not true for accessories which are usually driven up by the sale of amiibos and other figurines of the genre. The sector shows a slight decline of 2% with a score of 149 million dollars. Is this the beginning of the end and did Disney do the right thing by getting out of the sector?

In further analysis, we learn that it is no longer the PS3 and the Xbox 360 which are dragging down console sales, but the 3DS and PS Vita with a drop of 7.5 million dollars. If we add up the $5 million drop in previous generation consoles, we understand better that the PS4 and Xbox One alone cannot drive the market upwards.

It is therefore not a great surprise to learn that if we only take games intended for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Wii U, we get a 50% increase in sales year-on-year. In terms of titles released during the month, the latter achieved unit sales twice as high as the games published in May 2015. The games released during the last month alone represent no less than 51% of sales achieved. in the month of May.

NPD points out that even though the dollar sales of the PS4 and Xbox One have fallen, this is because their prices have been revised downwards and they continue to sell like hot cakes. Currently, they are achieving 43% higher sales at the same stage of life as the PS3 and Xbox 360. After having swallowed all these figures, we let you take advantage of the best video game sales by reminding you that the order Consoles in parentheses indicate the machines that sold the most games.
