Latest Call of Duty the best-selling game of last month in US; Xbox 360 sells 1.26 million systems; Nintendo DS only hardware to see year-over-year increase.
The NPD Group reported United States industry sales for the month of November today, revealing Call of Duty: Black Ops II was the best-selling game of the month that saw overall year-over-year declines.
"The much anticipated launch of the new Wii U console brought in more dollars than the Wii launch in November 2006, up 21 percent from that launch month," he said. "With an average price 35 percent higher for the Wii U at launch compared to the Wii, this is an example of how consumers are willing to come out and spend when they see the value of the product.”
Assuming Wii ASP: $250 Assuming Wii Nov 2006 sales: 476k
Total revenue: $119 million
Wii U = 119 million * 1.21 / (250 * 1.35) = 427k (emphasis on assuming)
EDIT: I just noticed the first sentence could mean hardware+software+accessory revenue, not hardware only. In that case, the math is useless.
EDIT2: Nintendo PR supports the math.
