Social games' decline is holding digital market back - report

Although March saw strong sales of downloadable titles, DLC and mobile games in the U.S., the overall digital sales market was offset by the decline in social games and MMO subscribers.

Figures from metrics tracking firm SuperData show that digital game sales in the U.S. were $875 million for March, up only a "modest" 1.1 percent year-over-year. (3DS, Casual games, Industry, Mobile, PC, PS Vita, PS3, Wii, Xbox 360)
