Hardware

Spending on hardware dropped 15% compared to March 2018 to $282, and for the first quarter, it’s down 13% to $759 million. Considering that the PS4 and Xbox One are both mature platforms, this shouldn’t be much of a surprise. Let’s face it — they’re getting old, and with Sony talking about its next console, consumers may be keeping their wallets closed.

Nintendo’s Switch was the best-selling platform for both March and the quarter, in terms of both dollar sales and systems sold. The Switch remains popular, but rumblings of new Switch versions could also result in consumers being slower to buy systems.
