Retail sales of new video-game hardware, software and accessories fell 11 percent in November.
It was the 12th straight month of declining sales. But last month represented the smallest decrease so far this year, helped in part by the offering of Nintendo's new console, the Wii U.
Research firm NPD Group says sales slipped to $2.55 billion from $2.87 billion a year ago.
Sales of video games themselves, excluding PC titles, fell 11 percent to $1.43 billion. Sales of hardware, including the Wii U, fell 13 percent to $838.9 million. Sales of accessories fell 8 percent to $280.9 million.
