NCAA Football Tops July NPD
Game sales continued to decline in July.
NPD numbers put overall sales in July at $548.4 million, down from $686.3 million the year before.
Only the 3DS saw an increase from last year, according to NPD analyst Anita Frazier. Overall hardware sales were down 32 percent from last year. Microsoft said that the Xbox continued to be the top selling console for the 14th month in a row, moving 203,000 systems.
Accessories, though, grew 8 percent from 2011, mainly due to virtual currency cards and Skylanders figures.
