November Hardware and Software Sales

Here are the hardware sales for the month of November:
  • DS — 1.70M
  • Wii — 1.26M
  • Xbox 360 — 819,500
  • PlayStation 3 — 710,400
  • PSP — 293,900
  • PlayStation 2 — 203,100

Due to the Christmas season, I believe the hardware sales are going to continue to increase for a little while as there are many kids with these consoles on their Christmas list.

“All hardware systems realized an increase over October but one would expect that from seasonality alone,” said Group analyst Anita Frazier. “More positive economic news combined with ‘frugal fatigue’ could positively impact industry sales during these last weeks of the holiday season.”
The following are the software sales for the month of November:

  1. 360 — Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, Activision, 4.20M
  2. PS3 — Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, Activision, 1.87M
  3. Wii — New Super Mario Bros. Wii, Nintendo, 1.39M
  4. 360 — Assassin’s Creed II, Ubisoft, 794,700
  5. 360 — Left 4 Dead 2, Electronic Arts, 744,000
  6. Wii — Wii Sports Resort, Nintendo, 720,200
  7. Wii — Wii Fit Plus, Nintendo, 679,000
  8. PS3 — Assassin’ Creed II, Ubisoft, 448,400
  9. 360 — Dragon Age: Origins, Electronic Arts, 362,100
  10. Wii — Mario Kart w/ Wheel, Nintendo, 315,000

It obviously was not a surprise as to which game was going to come out on top.

“While this year’s top-selling item bested last year’s by 283%, it couldn’t make up for softness elsewhere,” said Frazier. “The top 50 games this year sold 5% less units than did the top 50 last year.”
