US Video Game Sales Reached New High in 2018

US Video Game Sales Reached New High in 2018 That's an 18% increase in video game sales since 2017.

Video games also beat North American movie box office sales in 2018, which recorded $11.9 billion.

The Nintendo Switch became the United States' best-selling console last year, topping the Playstation 4.

Analysts say it was due to strong sales during the holidays and the extremely popular 'Super Smash Bros.

Ultimate.'

According to The Entertainment Software Association, video game software sales also went up 18% from a year before thanks to popular games like 'Red Dead Redemption 2' and 'Marvel's Spider-Man.'
