A new report was recently released by The NPD Group. This research showed that Americans spent $4.4 billion on video games in the month of September, signifying a 3% increase year on year. Additionally, year-to-date spending rose by 12% to $42.3 billion when compared to 2020.
Even though it was a good month for gaming in the United States, Nintendo did not do so well in September. In fact, the PlayStation 5 became the best-selling platform in the United States in terms of both dollars spent and units sold. As a result, the device was able to dethrone the Nintendo Switch, which had been the best-selling gaming console in the United States for 33 consecutive months.
Overall spending on gaming content remained the same year-over-year at $3.78 billion. However, spending on video game accessories was down 12% year-on-year.
