Video-game sales hit new peak - TechFlash: Seattle's Technology News Source

See the full post for more details

OK, here's that positive news we've been looking for: The video-game industry finished 2008 in record style, topping $5 billion in total sales of hardware, software and accessories in the U.S. in December. It's the first time the industry has exceeded that number in a single month, according to NPD Group data released today.

On a related note, also see Wii, Xbox games dominate 2008.

2008 was not a great year for Sony, although, as noted in the first article linked above, the PS2 continues to sell well – if you add PS2 + PS3 sales for December, 2008, Sony gets closer to Xbox 360 sales for the month (1.236M total Sony versus 1.44M Xbox 360).
