Gamers spend $3.4B on all types of games in Q1

Gamers spent $3.4 billion on both physical and digital games in the first quarter, according to market researcher NPD Group.

Consumers spent nearly half of that amount, $1.5 billion, on PC and console games in physical stores. Meanwhile, they spent $525 million on used and rental games and $1.38 billion on digital games, including content downloads, subscriptions, mobile games, and social network games. The numbers show that digital games are very close to exceeding physical retail game sales. (Industry, Tag Invalid)

I live next to a Blockbuster, so that's usually my go to spot. Unlimited rentals for 15 bucks a month is a steal. Especially cause they stock new releases on day 1.
