Xbox 360 dominates PS3/Wii U November sales in US photo



Microsoft is currently preening its feathers over another US victory, boasting an NPD victory over both the PS3 and newly released Wii U this November. Although figures overall are down, Microsoft's Xbox division is still doing healthily. 

1.2 million Xbox 360s were sold in November, down 25.9% from last year. The Wii U, by contrast, sold 425,000. Sony, as always, refuses to release its own sales figures, but we can assume it's less than 1.2 million and more than 10, which helps narrows it down a bit.

Nintendo sold 1.75 million units of hardware overall, with 420,000 Wiis, 540,000 DS', and 370,000 3DS' all flogged to punters during the month. 

Unsurprisingly, Black Ops II was the biggest seller last month, with 7.4 million sales on 360/PS3 alone. Halo 4 came in at number 2 with 3.2 million.
