Hardware Sales at Highest Ever in November

According to the monthly report from the NPD Group, video game hardware sales had a 58% boost last month thanks in part to the launches of the Playstation 4, Xbox One, and popular Nintendo 3DS titles which lead to more console sales.

The highest selling console overall in November was the Playstation 4 which sold over 2 million consoles worldwide and also broke the record for highest selling console in a month. NPD data reports that the Xbox One was the highest selling console in the United States, selling over 900,000 units in its first 9 days and also sold over 2 million consoles around the globe.

NPD also states that so far this year the video game industry has grossed nearly $3 Billion in sales overall, which is a 7% boost from 2012.
