According to SuperData, the leading provider of market intelligence covering the video game market, sales of digital games exceeded $6.2 billion worldwide in February 2016, a 10% increase from the same month last year. While this info doesn’t mean physical copies are on their way out, it shows the progress and confidence the audience has gotten purchasing digital games.

Most of the growth actually comes from the purchase of digital games for consoles with 34%, with a 24% increase in audience year-on-year. Unfortunately, due to the lack of new titles in that month when compared to February 2015,  there was a decline of 180,000 units in new game sales, however, sufficient purchases of additional content kept the industry strong.
