The NPD Group has released data for April packaged video games sales in the US. Hardware sales were down 23% Y/Y (the PS4 was again the top-selling console), due to declines in handheld and last generation consoles. Packaged software was down 21% (vs. BG est.: -15%), mainly impacted by a difficult comparison base, with Dark Souls III (Bandai Namco) as the best-seller game over the month. Ubisoft placed one game in the Top 10 (The Division #4 after being #1 in March). We maintain our ratings within our sector coverage: Buys on UBISOFT (FV of EUR34) and on GAMELOFT (FV of EUR7.2).
