“Gains in software, accessories, and game card spending offset declines in hardware,” said NPD analyst Mat Piscatella. “Year-to-date spending across tracked video game hardware, software, accessories, and game cards has increased 3 percent when compared to 2018, to $2 billion.”

Hardware and accessories

The Nintendo Switch was the best-selling console of the month. It also generated the most hardware dollars for Nintendo since February 2011. For accessories and game cards, sales are climbing once again. This segment generated $313 million, which is up 6 percent year-over-year. “Gamepad spending gains were the primary driver of the increase,” said Piscatella. “Nintendo gamepad sales increased nearly 80 percent in the month of February, and are now up approximately 90 percent year to date. Year-to-date spending on accessories and game cards has increased 8 percent when compared to a year ago, to $580 million.
