Video game retailer GameStop released its sales results for the holiday shopping season. The company reported overall sales of $2.63 billion, a decline of 5 percent when compared to the 2017 holiday season.

GameStop attributes the decrease to a shift in the company’s 2017 fiscal calendar and the Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 release moving from November to October.

Looking at specific categories, new hardware sales decreased 6.1 percent, new video game software sales decreased 8.3 percent, and pre-owned sales decreased 16.4 percent. Video game accessories increased 28.7 percent, collectibles increased 3.7 percent, and digital receipts increased 16.8.
