In spite of an uncertain economy, US video game sales remain strong

May marked another extremely strong month for gaming sales, according to the latest figures from NPD. Between software, hardware, accessories and game cards, Americans spent around $977 million. That’s a 57-percent jump since the year prior and the highest it’s been for the month since 2008, when the county was feeling the strain of the Great Recession.
All of this is made more remarkably by the fact that the United States has been struggling with COVID-19-related pains for months now. This week, another 1.5 million Americans filed for unemployment, bringing the total number to 44.2 million since the beginning of shutdowns. But as countless other venues for non-essential spending have suffered, gaming has thrived.
