November NPD Sales, 360 Gears Up!

I won’t bother mentioning the fact that the majority of America seems to have chosen to stay in the last generation by continuing to purchase the Nintendo Wii at alarming rates.  Nope.  I won’t mention that at all.

Gears of War 2 

Instead, I’ll focus on a few things that make sense to me which are the Xbox 360 reaping even more benefits from its price drop and enjoying massive software success from the release of Gears of War 2.

They call me "The Velvet Voice". I like sunshine, games and large amounts of money. I'm a Microsoft Xbox MVP and an Author. Check out the book about my journey through the gaming industry Press X to Reload and The Terribly Terrific Travels of Timber Timmins on Support the site and buy 'em. Take a look at my About Me bio for more on me.


  1. Couple of things I’d like to note;

    I’m glad to see Gears 2 did so well; expected it.

    I’m surprised to see that COD:WaW did almost as well as Gears 2; didn’t expect that…

    I’m perplexed at Nintendo’s numbers, but not surprised. My in-laws purcahsed my kiddo’s a Wii for Christmas, so that accounts for 1 of those sales…no matter how you look at it the numbers are mind bottling.

  2. yep mind bottling indeed. i can’t justify having one just to have one ya know. there has to be something that i want to play. good thing my little brother has one so i never have to buy one of my own lol

  3. i think people are buying wii’s and ds’s just to throw them out and buy them again. seriously who the hell is still buying wii’s! and the 360 is doing much better i think because of the holidays

  4. /swoops in to edit Boston’s post

    “Wow the 360 did OWN the PS3 for November LOL”

    Nothing to see here folks…hangover’s FTW!

  5. Let us all pray for the poor unfortunate PS3 fanboys’ souls…

    See ya next year, loosers!!! GO 360!!! 😀
