Last month was when the crazy shopping started like Black Friday and Cyber Monday, game sales skyrocketed. Nintendo had a very successful month last month with 1.7 million consoles sold and the DS was in second place with over 1.2 million sold, those are some numbers! The Xbox 360 was behind Nintendo with over 800,000 systems sold and the PS3 right after with over 700,000 systems sold. Even the PS2 sold a good amount of systems even though, well, no new games are really being made for it anymore. Find the sales for hardware and software after the break.
