    $241 million. That's how much video game fans spent on video-game hardware in January, up 17 percent from a year earlier. Sony, vying with Microsoft for dominance of the U.S. console market, said its PlayStation 4 sold twice the number of its nearest rival. The industry is monitoring demand for the new consoles to see whether they boost sales or if gamers have shifted permanently to smartphones and tablets.
