Nintendo Tops The Charts In November, Cal of Duty 4 Invades Successfully
The season shopping madness has hit hard this November and the sales numbers are here to prove it. Nintendo is once again ahead of the competition in terms of hardware sales, but the overall figures are quite impressive.

Microsoft also had a good month, shipping 770,000 more console to gamers in the US, while Sony had to settle for the last three positions: PSP, PlayStation 2 and last, PlayStation 3.
The complete NPD Group top is down below:
Nintendo DS - 1,530,000
Wii - 981,000
Xbox 360 – 770,000
PlayStation Portable - 567,000
PlayStation 2 - 496,000
PlayStation 3 – 466,000
Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare successful invaded not the beaches in Normandy, but the software sales charts. The Xbox 360 game barricaded itself on the top position with the help of 1,570,000 troops (sold units), followed by the Wii-ish Super Mario Galaxy (1,120,000). Assassin's Creed killed the right competitors and landed on the third step of the podium, but Altair would better keep an eye out for Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock (at number 4), as his advantage is far from being great.
Master Chief sits silent near the end of the list with 387,000 sold copies, a clear sign that the Halo 3 hype wave is gone. Oh well, “thus passes the glory of the world”, right?
