Reggie Fils-Aime

The NPD sale figures are in for the month of November.  And with no surprise, Modern Warfare 2 tops the list and sells over 6 million copies across the Xbox 360 and PS3 console.  Easily breaking numerous records, Infinity Ward’s MW2 toppled Reggie Fils-Aime predictionthat Super Mario Bros. Wii would outsell the first-person shooter.  SMB Wii did make an appearance in the third spot.  Check out who else made the NPD Video Game sales for November.

The full top ten, according to the NPD Group is as follows.

01. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 (Xbox 360) – 4,200,000
02. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 (PS3) – 1,870,000
03. New Super Mario Bros. Wii (Wii) – 1,390,000

What really surprises me is just how much more Modern Warfare 2 outsold the PlayStation 3 version 2-to-1.  Also, who’s still surprised to see Mario Kart Wii.  The game is over a year old…
