Like every month, it’s time to take stock of the state of the American video game market with the release of game and console sales figures by the NPD Institute for the month of April 2019.

We thus learn that as a whole, revenue for the month is $842 million (up 1% year-over-year), with the following breakdown:

  • Hardware: 160 million (-25%)
  • PC games and console games: 427 million (+15%)
  • Accessories: 256 million (+5%)
  • This general increase of 1% hides some disparities, with a sharp drop in console sales in favor of an acceleration in sales of games and accessories which compensate for the weakness of hardware. Since the start of the year, however, the market has fallen by 2% to 4 billion dollars..

    Regarding games, here is the ranking of the most popular titles for the month of April, with Mortal Kombat 11 which confirms its excellent sales, while Days Gone offers itself a nice second place while it is exclusive to the PS4.

    1. Mortal Kombat 11
