    System Sales in November 2012:

    #1. Xbox 360 – Sold 1.26 Million Units. (-25.9% year-over-year, but still twice the sales of any other system)
    #2. Nintendo 3DS – Sold 540,000 Units. (-32.1%)
    #3. PlayStation 3 – Sold 525,000+ Units on Black Friday alone. (+9%)
    #4. Nintendo Wii U – Sold 425,000 Units.
    #5. Nintendo Wii – Sold 420,000 Units. (-51.1%)
    #6. Nintendo DS – Sold 370,000 Units. (+5.7%)
    #7. PlayStation Vita – Sold 225,000 Units.

    More and more gamers are getting connected through Xbox Live and using Xbox 360 for both gaming and as a multimedia box.

    Wedbush Securities analyst Michael Pachter adds that these November sales results — a record 12 months of declines — are worse than he expected.

    To quote: “The culprit was Wii U hardware sales, which came in about $50 million below expected, and sales of Nintendo handhelds, the DS and 3DS. Wii U hardware was sold out, we checked, so it’s a supply issue. But Wii U software sales were abysmal, only New Super Mario Bros. U sold any meaningful units.”
