Grand Theft Auto 5 leads the way

According to a recent report from the NPD group, U.S. consumers spent 3.45 billion dollars last quarter on videogame content -- up 17 percent from the same quarter in 2012. 

Leading the charge was Grand Theft Auto 5, which shattered all single-day sales records with an $800 million dollar opening. Additionally, the report stated that physical game software accounted for $1.30 billion, while another $1.75 billion was spent on digital content (DLC, subscriptions, social, mobile, and full digital purchases). Used sales and rentals made up the remainder at $436 million.
