“All segments of spending reflected double-digit percentage declines when compared to January 2018,” NPD analyst Mat Piscatella said. “Despite declines when compared to a year ago, January 2019 spending was the second highest market total achieved in a January month since the $917 million reached in January 2013.”

 

Hardware
Hardware spending in January 2019 declined 28 percent when compared to a year ago, to $199 million. Total hardware dollar sales were the second highest total achieved since the $239 million reached in January 2014.

 

Nintendo Switch was the best-selling hardware platform of January 2019 in both dollar and unit sales. Switch was the only Console platform to show year-on-year sales growth.

 

Total spending on Accessories and Game Cards fell 12 percent in January 2019 when compared to a year ago, to $267 million. Slight gains in Gamepad spending were offset by declines across other accessory segments and game cards.

 

The Nintendo Switch Pro Controller was January's best-selling accessory with dollar sales increasing 40 percent when compared to a year ago.

Yeah maybe it’s because I finally built a gaming PC this gen, but I would actually be annoyed if Sony / MS do come out with new hardware soon. Maybe annoyed is the wrong word, apathetic I guess. 

 

The Switch is killin it though, and it’s looking like it’ll have the best 2019 from the big 3.
