The total US physical video game market - videogames, consoles and accessories - fell by six per cent from $1.23 billion to $1.16 billion year-on-year in September, according to new figures from research group NPD.
Despite a number of high-profile game releases, such as Gears Of War 3 and Madden NFL 12, sales of new console and PC software slid one per cent year-on-year to $653.2 million, but were up three per cent over the previous month's figures.
Meanwhile hardware and accessory sales saw more significant drops, falling nine per cent to $349 million and 14 per cent to $154.8 million respectively.
Microsoft's Xbox 360 was the best-selling console during the month, reaching 438,000 (45,000 less than the same month last year).
