    • Big 3 console sales up a whopping 47% in Nov 08 vs Nov 07, even though there were fewer post-thanksgiving days in Nov 08.

      Amazing numbers.

      Here's the % differences by console:

      Wii: 108%
      Xbox360: 9%
      PS3: -19%

      That PS3 number blows, but when you consider that many people who orginally bought the PS3 mostly just wanted a Blu-ray player, it's not surprise that the PS3 is losing out. Also, the XBOX360 price cut makes a huge difference as does the exclusive games which favor XBox360. Doesn't matter to GME if people are buying Wiis, Xboxes or PS3's, as long as they are buying!

      Of course, all these people buying new consoles will be eating up the used games that are already out.

      Also, console sales are the strongest indicators for 2009 video game sales. And indicators of new video game sales are indicators of USED video game sales. DUH. But I thought I'd connect the dots for all the GME shorts out there.
