Analysis: NPD April 2009 Console Sales - Nintendo DSi And Sony PlayStation 2 Flourish

Do you want to know how much you spent on video games in the first quarter of 2011? Of course you do! According to the NPD Group, as a collective, gamers dropped a total of $2.03 billion in the U.S. on "new physical video and PC game software" in the first quarter of 2011. 

The total consumers spend on content via other monetization methods, including used games, game rentals, subscriptions, digital full-game downloads, social network games, downloadable content, and mobile games, is estimated at $1.85 billion.

On the whole, this is a slight improvement on last year's sales. It's an increase of 1.5 percent.

While 1.5 percent isn't much of an increase, it does indicate that gaming, as a whole, is holding its own during tough economic times, and sometimes, a little bit of good news is the best you can hope for.
