We are not in "29" and also not in "11"

"While Wii sales more than doubled from the 981,000 units Nintendo sold in November last year, monthly PlayStation 3 sales dropped. Despite it commanding a much stronger software line-up, Sony saw PS3 sales decline from 466,000 last November, to just 378,000 this November. The company's previous generation platform also dropped considerably, moving just 206,000 compared to 496,000 units during the same month last year.

On the portable front, over 1.57 million Nintendo DSs were sold in the U.S. last month, almost four times the amount of PSPs sold by Sony.

Total hardware sales amounted to $2.91 billion for the month, up 10% from November of 2007.

"The expanded supply of Wii systems at retail was clearly evident in the sales figures this month," Anita Frazier, analyst for the NPD Group noted. "The 360 realized a nice unit sales bump over last November and the PS3 year-to-date unit sales growth is impressive."
