    NPD reported that sales of new videogame products at U.S. retail stores fell 25% in May, with game sales of console hitting their lowest levels in more than a decade as customers wait out purchases until the release of Microsoft Corp.’s Xbox One and Sony Corp.’s PlayStation 4 later this year.

    Video game hardware, software and accessories sales in U.S. retail stores fell to $386.3 million in May, down from $517 million a year prior. Games software sales were particularly hard hit, falling 44% to $187.6 million from $335.2 million a year prior.

    Are you waiting on console and software purchases until the launch of XBox One and PS4? I am...
