    Digital Sales Up 60%

    The video-game retailer expects a same-store sales decline of 1% to 2% for the year, down from its November's reduced guidance of flat to down 1%, though it backed its full-year and fourth-quarter earnings guidance.
    The company said hardware sales dropped 20% for the nine weeks ended Dec. 31 as there were no new consoles to stimulate consumer demand as in 2010. Meanwhile, sales of new video game software rose 9.9% and digital sales grew 60%, driven by subscriptions for downloadable content like Call of Duty Elite. Pre-owned sales increased 3.5%.
    Overall, holiday same-store sales fell 0.3% as a 1.5% drop internationally outpaced the 0.3% rise in the U.S. Total sales were $3.02 billion, essentially flat with the year-earlier period.
