The epidemic has surged sales of consoles and games in Europe

Posted by hifactory on June 4th, 2020

In addition to people spending more money on food and items, console and game sales have skyrocketed throughout Europe, and games have become a way to pass the time and temporarily get out of trouble.

Gamesindustry analyzed the latest market data from GSD. GSD tracked hardware and software sales in multiple markets, and the results showed that game spending increased significantly. As consumers wait for the Xbox Series X and PS5 to be available at the end of the year, sales of game consoles have declined sharply in recent months. However, in the week of March 16-22, game console sales increased by 155% to 259169 units. This surge was described as overall growth, with Nintendo Switch, PlayStation4, and Xbox One sales all increasing significantly.

It can be seen from the record of the number of Steam users that there are more people playing games than ever before. This fact is reflected in the jump in sales of game consoles. In the first week of curfew in Italy, sales of consoles increased by 84%, in Spain it increased by 27.7%, in the second week it increased by 66%, in France sales increased by 140.6%, in the United Kingdom increased by 250%, Australia increased 285.6%.

Due to self-isolation, sales of video games have also increased. Digital downloads in 50 markets increased by 52.9% to 2.74 million, and physical sales also increased substantially, up 82% from the previous week to 1.58 million copies.

Anime shooting games are also the main part. Some mainstream game manufacturers are also manufacturing in large quantities. What they did not expect is that their product sales have skyrocketed due to the development of the epidemic.
