According to NPD analyst Mat Piscatella, PS5 DualSense White Wireless Controllers were the best-selling video game accessories of 2021. Despite the dominant sales numbers, the best-selling accessory of December was actually the Xbox Elite Wireless Controller Series 2.
Even though December was a good month for these two products, the video games accessories market shrank by 9% when compared to December of 2020. Overall, video game accessory sales in 2021 totaled $2.7 billion, representing a 2% increase versus 2020.
The Xbox controller, which was originally released in 2019, has a starting price of $179.99. The PS5 controller is much cheaper at $69.99.
