As expected, the industry continues to see rapid growth year
after year. With such a large amount of videogame units on the
market, all of which are selling briskly, software sales and
peripheral sales are seeing large boosts over last year's
efforts. For June 07, the industry grew 31% in comparison to June
06. Overall hardware sales is up 34%, and overall software sales
is up 22%. Surprisingly, according to the NPD, portable hardware
sales is down 6% – an unusual blemish in an otherwise positive
chart. Lastly, peripheral/accessory sales went up a fantastic
58%.
