New Yorkers in Huntington spend more than four times the average amount on video games, according to a recent study by credit card spending tracker Bundle.

Bundle based their study on aggregated, anonymised spending data from 20 million Visa and Mastercard customers. So that means that the results are impacted heavily by the sorts of people who have a credit card and use it for purchases regularly. But it's still an interesting study.
