Xbox 360 sales boom

The Microsoft Xbox 360 may be old, but it still continues to sell very well. Microsoft reportedly sold 1.7 million Xbox 360 game consoles in November in the US alone. That number is a 23% increase compared to November of 2010 and significantly higher than the sales analysts predicted.

Analyst Michael Pachter had predicted that Microsoft sold 1.44 million Xbox 360s in the month. Nintendo was far behind Microsoft with 860,000 Wii consoles sold. The Nintendo 3DS sold very well during November with 765,000 3DS units sold.

Sony was mum on its sales numbers for the month making us wonder if they were not good. Sony only said that the PS3 saw a 70% increase in sales for November and a 30% increase in software sales for the month. November was a very big month for the game industry overall.
