Microsoft's Xbox Leads U.S. Video-Game Sales in November as Wii Recovers

Microsoft Corp.’s Xbox 360, helped by its Kinect motion-capture controller, was the best-selling video-game console in the U.S. for the sixth consecutive month, the company said.

The Redmond, Washington-based software company sold 1.37 million Xbox consoles in November, David Dennis, group product manager with Xbox, said today citing statistics from researcher NPD Group Inc.

Nintendo Co.’s Wii sales gained 0.8 percent to 1.27 million units, the company said separately. Sony Corp.’s PS3 sales fell 25 percent to 530,000 units from a year earlier, when the company cut prices, Morgan Stanley said, citing NPD data.
