Assassination and dancing has confirmed to be a profitable mix, as Just Dance 2 and 3 and Assassin’s Creed: Facts helped Ubisoft to lead 2011 best seller’s list with 3 entries.
Which is according to the NPD Team, which also reports the video game sector’s profits, including “new physical video and PC games, used games, game leases, subscribers, digital full-game downloads, social network games, downloadable articles, and mobile games,” achieved sales of somewhere between $16.3 and $16.6 billion in 2011.
Activision’s Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 got top awards (it’s kind of a big deal), while Just Dance 3 and Skyrim filled the second and third spots, correspondingly. NPD also says that, despite sales development in the electronic sector yet again, physical reports available at full price outlets still accounted for the bulk of sales coming in at $9.3 billion, “an 8 percent downfall over the $10.1 billion in 2010.”
That downfall was “partially” balanced out by increases in digital, mobile, and used game income, which NPD desires to be a focus moving into 2012.
NPD prez David McQuillan said that: “Our total calculate of the market carries on to point toward the increased crucial for deeper awareness into digital distribution than is accessible today, not only in the U.S. but globally.”
