November NPD: Game Console Sales

November is without a doubt the craziest month of the year for retailers. It is by far the busiest, largely thanks to Black Friday. So it goes without mention that for guys like me, November sales numbers are usually the most anticipated. In particular, this month is important because it highlights the PlayStation 3's performance post-40GB release. And, while I'm normally harsh, I'm going to have to say that the PlayStation 3's sales for November aren't so bad.

Clearly, the victor here is Nintendo, the Wii's near 1-million approach is phenomenal. But I actually think that the Xbox 360's sales could've been higher considering Mass Effect, the remnants of Halo 3, and the price-drop. Nevertheless, it outsold the PlayStation 3 by 300k units. The PSP continues to perform very well, despite a lack of software, and we assume the new price-tag, slimmer design, and additional features may have something to do with it. Overall, even though Sony's consoles didn't come out on top, they still performed reasonably well across the board, especially the aging PlayStation 2.

Now, the next big thing to anticipate will be to see if Unreal Tournament III has any impact on PlayStation 3 sales, and how the numbers will change in December.

Nintendo DS 1.53M
Nintendo Wii 981k
Xbox 360 770k
Sony PSP 567k
Sony PS2 496k
Sony PS3 466k
