NPD: Microsoft celebrates 'best-ever' November

Company saw $838 million in revenue, the best November in Xbox 360 history

Representatives from Microsoft have responded to November's NPD numbers, reflecting on what the company is calling the best November in Xbox 360 history.

"November was an amazing month for Xbox 360 and sets us up for a great finish in the closing stretch of holiday 2009," said a statement released by the company today.

According to Microsoft, combined revenue for Xbox 360 hardware, software and accessories for the month was USD 838 million, the highest grossing November in Xbox 360 history.

The Xbox 360 version of Modern Warfare 2 sold 4.2 million units for the month, "outselling the competitive platform versions by more than two-to-one," said Microsoft. The title was one of four games for the Xbox 360 on the NPD's top ten list, the most of any other console.

"We’re off to a start this holiday and the best is yet to come this year and beyond," said Microsoft.
