Game Sales Up 5%

While official word has yet to emerge from market-tracker the NPD Group, Reuters, relying on analyst sales data, is stating that U.S. videogame software sales rose 5.0 percent in 2003. In 2002, U.S. videogame software sales rose 21.0 percent, after posting a 10.0 percent gain in 2001. December 2003 software sales rose 13.0 percent in year-over-year results, and gained 21.0 percent when factoring in only software for next-generati0on machines.

Electronic Artsí December 2003 business reportedly grew 32.0 percent from December 2002, while Activision, Inc. seemingly realized growth of 38.0 percent in the same year-over-year period. On the hardware side, PlayStation 2 sales were off 26.0 percent in the 2003 calendar year, while Xbox slipped 2.0 percent. GameCube, riding a late surge after a price cut implemented stateside on September 25, saw sales grow 39.0 percent over 2002 results, a higher figure than even Nintendo itself predicted last week.
