The NDP group has released some sales data for May 2019, and overall the picture is not as good as we think. The overall market for video games fell by 11% compared with the same month last year (USD 641 million against USD 717 million). As a result, the material was $149 million (-20%), the software $262 million (-13%) and the accessories $230 million (unchanged). Over the year as a whole, video game sales fell by 3%.

This is the lowest level of software sales in May since 2013, indicating a lack of attractive software on the market. This is evidenced by the fact that Mortal Kombat 11 was once again at the top of the software list of the month. The day has come for PS4 which also stayed in second place.

As far as hardware is concerned, we are in a transitional phase in which potential buyers are probably waiting to see what Sony and Microsoft will do. Existing systems have not experienced a price drop for a long time, which is not a major incentive for new customers. The only exception is the Switch, which again dominated hardware sales this month. There is no doubt that the hybrid system is a great success with holidaymakers who can take it anywhere in the summer. This year the Switch leads the package in terms of unit sales and dollar sales.
