November Sales Numbers Show 360 & DS in the Lead

You already know how the crucial November, and specifically Black Friday, period went for Nintendo- but Microsoft had a pretty nice one too.

The NPD report for November shows a cool 1.37 million units sold by the Xbox company over the November period. That's a monumental jump of 68% from the same time in 2009. Obviously the difference maker was Kinect as the camera/motion controller has already become the best selling peripheral of 2010.

All of this added together gives the 360 a 40% market share of the total worldwide videogame industry.

So there you go- Nintendo DS 'family' in first with 1.5 million and Xbox 360 in second with 1.37- it's shaping up to be a very nice season for the industry.
