NPD's latest round of bleak video game sales data is leading Electronic Arts (EA -2.4%), Activision (ATVI -2.6%), and Take-Two (TTWO -1.6%) to close lower. A 27% Y/Y drop in U.S. physical retail game sales was worse than the normalized 19% drop seen in January, as demand remains tepid ahead of this fall's PlayStation (SNE) and Xbox (MSFT) refreshes. Console sales fell 36%, worse than January's normalized 17%. The Xbox was the best-selling console for the 19th straight month, and the PlayStation Vita and Nintendo's (NTDOY.PK) Wii U saw strong M/M growth off small bases.
