It is nothing new for anyone that the times in which we live are difficult for all people and for all sectors. After all, it took a huge effort to maintain wages. It is even necessary to resort to state aid. However, if there is something that does not seem to have been affected by the pandemic, it is definitely the sale of digital games.
That said, this increase is seen when we compare the current year 2020 with last year. So far, 10 billion euros have been spent on digital games. With the month of October being the period with the largest increase in sales on consoles, around 18%.

Not even with the pandemic! Sale of digital games increases 14%!
Therefore, taking into account that sales of video games did not increase only on consoles, it is important to note that on Smartphones the increase was 15% and on PC the increase was centered on 10%. With some games standing out on all platforms and representing a large part of the pie.
Thus, one of the best selling games was none other than Genshin Impact. With one of the best recipes during the month of October. Followed by Watch Dogs Legion that sold 1.9 million copies, FIFA 21 that sold 1.5 million copies, Star Wars Squadrons that sold 1.1 million copies and still by Crash Bandicoot 4: Its about Time that sold about 402 thousand units.
In short, it is important to see that despite all the difficulties the Gaming sector remains high and with no sign of slowing down. Something very important, especially at a time when PS5 and Xbox Series X have already hit the market. And they desperately need to sell as many games as possible for the initial profit.
