Digital game purchases have seen an increase over the past few years. However, based on information coming from The NPD Group, most players in the United States still tend to purchase their games physically.

In its “Core Gaming 2014” report, NPD mentions that seventy-four percent of consumers prefer buying the physical release of a title. Keep in mind that digital preferences are nevertheless on the rise, coming in at a five percent increase year-over-year.

So how about you? Which side of the fence do you sit on? Do you still prefer buying games digitally, or have you started adapting to the digital space?

Update: Analyst David Gibson has provided specific sales information, including 3DS results:


Nintendo hasn’t shared any sort of official information about the Wii U’s performance in the US last month, but things were far from stellar. Sales of Nintendo’s newest console – combined with the Wii – are said to be under 100,000 units.

That information comes from NeoGAF’s “creamsugar”, who is known for providing accurate NPD leaks.

creamsugar also shared a statistic pertaining to Yoshi’s New Island as well. It sounds like the game’s software sales combined with the special 3DS XL system sold under 160,000 units.

In its monthly NPD response, Nintendo revealed that Wii U sales increased by 25 percent in February compared to the year prior. That statistic allows us to determine a rough estimate of the number of consoles the company sold across the US last month.

So how much did the Wii U sell? About 82,000, based on the calculation. That’s not a whole lot, but Nintendo seems to be pleased that sales are up as a whole.

3DS also saw an increase in software sales – 25 percent specifically. Bravely Default was a success for Nintendo having sold over 200,000 copies in a little over three weeks.

The ever-reliable NPD leaker “creamsugar” has come through with one piece of noteworthy data.

Last month, Wii Fit U is said to have sold under 20,000 copies. Those sales were obtained in a little less than a month.

Wii Fit U is selling at an incredibly slower rate than Wii Fit and Wii Fit Plus, though that was to be expected. Wii U has a much lower installed base than its predecessor, for one thing. Also keep in mind that Nintendo has been offering the title on the eShop, and allowed console owners to purchase the digital version for just $20 by syncing their Fit Meters.
