Global digital video game sales kicked off the year with new high scores after breaking records in 2015.
Sales of games downloaded to consoles, PCs, and mobile devices hit $6.3 billion in January, rising 8 percent from the year-ago period, according gaming intelligence firm SuperData Research.
The market for digital games reached an all-time high of $61 billion in 2015, the firm reported last month.
Revenues for PC titles were up 33 percent from January 2015. That platform was the biggest moneymaker for downloadable games in 2015, with sales reaching $32 billion.
One of the top PC performers last month was the latest iteration in the popular "Tomb Raider" franchise. Sales of Square Enix's "Rise of the Tomb Raider" were soft upon its release on Microsoft's Xbox last winter, but it sold three times as many units on PC than it did on console in its first month on shelves, SuperData said.
