Hardware and accessories

Folks spent $350 million on hardware in June, thanks mainly to the battle royale sensation Fortnite. Sony’s PlayStation 4 was the best-selling console and remains the top platform year-to-date, but Microsoft and Nintendo also saw their sales increase. Year-over-year, Xbox One made almost twice and the Switch sold more than 50 percent. Nintendo also sold the most consoles with its NES Classic.

“This is the first time a Nintendo Entertainment System console has led in monthly unit sales since NPD tracking began in 1995,” said NPD analyst Mat Piscatella.

The accessories and game card category grew 31 percent year-over-year, hitting $1.8 billion. Game cards hit all-time high sales, and accessories generated the most revenue since 2011. Like it did with hardware, Epic’s hit influenced headset sales, which was twice as high as June 2017 and up 86 percent year-to-date.
