Handhelds fuel 21 pct rise in U.S. video game sales

Source: Reuters

Retail sales of U.S. video games hardware, software and accessories rose 21 percent in the first six months of the year, as the popularity of handheld devices offset a decline in aging game consoles, a study said.

The video games industry, which has been rocked this month by concerns over sexual content in one of its most popular titles -- Take-Two Interactive Software Inc.'s "Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas," saw sales rise to over $4.1 billion in the period, from $3.4 billion in 2004, research firm NPD Group said in a report. Overall unit sales rose 11 percent.

NPD said the gains were buoyed by the introduction of new portable handheld game devices, including Sony Corp.'s (6758.T: Quote, Profile, Research) PlayStation Portable (PSP) and Nintendo Co. Ltd.'s DS dual-screen machine. Overall, portable game hardware sales rose 181 percent over a year ago, the study said.   ...more at Reuters
