Aaron Greenberg, Microsoft's product management director, is ebullient about the company's performance in November 2009's NPD results. The Xbox 360 lead the PS3 in sales, though it did drop slightly year on year.
Of course, the month's big story was the huge sales of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, which boasted the biggest opening month sales ever at 4.2 million copies -- besting the PlayStation 3 version over 2:1 in sales.
It's worth noting that this does not include copies bundled with Microsoft's limited edition console, a move Sony did not replicate. In comparison, the massively hyped Halo 3 sold 3.3 million copies on its September 2007 debut.
