The lockdown to control the spread of COVID-19 has increased the demand of video games. Video game producer Electronic Arts estimate the revenue of this year more than the Wall Street estimates Wednesday (May 6).
According to the details, the sales of video games in the United States have increased in the last two months as the new virus closed the country and people are stuck in their homes.
The sources said that the sales of EA in March is their maximum sale over a decade.
The Wedbush analyst, Michael Pachter said, “I think investors thought that shelter-in-place would generate even more progress than they directed to.”
He added that the expectations were very high but the company is being a conservative.

Where others are struggling to cope up with Covid-19 and related issues, this young boy did something innovative. The boy is a fourth-grade student from the outskirts of Milan.
The boy said, “I had to stop all the sports I did because of COVID-19,”
“I can’t even go to the pond with my dog. Instead of playing sports – skiing, swimming, and karate – I have to make do with an exercise bike.”
This led Lupo to think about programming. He shares this passion with his father Marco, a business manager.
