Just-released NPD data has shown overall game revenues rose 10 percent in February compared to the same month in 2007, up to $1.47 billion.

Hardware sales were up 11 percent to $532.7 million, while software revenue climbed 9 percent to $733.5 million.

Accessories were up 13 percent to $207.1 million.

“The U.S. video games industry continues to post strong year-over-year comps despite the tough economy,” said NPD analyst Anita Frazier.

“Unit sales increased even more than dollar sales did, reflecting a slightly lower average retail price for all categories as compared to last year.”




    Yeah, but all of this moeny is shared between fewer and fewer companies.

    Might be good for them, but not necessarily for everyone.
