According to previously released data from analyst firm NPD Group, the Sony PlayStation 5 has become the best-selling console in US history. It has been ahead of the competition in both the number of units sold and in “dollar sales” since its introduction in the market in November last year.
The data shows that total gaming equipment sales in March this year were 47% higher compared to the same period last year, setting a record of $ 680 million. The total spent for the year is $ 1.4 billion, up 81% over the same period last year.
Sony also leads the way in accessories sales, with the DualSense controller being the top dollar accessory in March and Q1 2021.
