The Xbox360 installed based is wrong. NPD has it at 3.4 million now, they needed to revise the numbers to due an error in their histrocial data.

http://biz.gamedaily.com/industry/feature/?id=14737

Revised: Game Industry Up 16% through November

The NPD Group has sent GameDaily BIZ its corrected data for year-to-date sales. As it turns out, year-to-date industry sales are not up 25 percent, but they are still up a very healthy 16 percent. We also have new data on console install bases and more.

Last week, GameDaily BIZ broke the news on a stellar November in which game industry sales were up 34 percent year-over-year. While the NPD's November data remains intact, errors in their historical data forced them to issue a retraction on such data points as year-to-date numbers, life-to-date sales, install base, etc.

Today we have received the corrected data, which reveals that the video game industry through November is tracking up 16 percent at $8.76 billion. Software overall is up 7 percent at $4.72 billion. Portable software in particular has done very well this year, up 19 percent at $1.17 billion. Console software was up 3 percent at $3.55 billion.

On the hardware side, year-to-date overall hardware sales are up 36 percent at $3.01 billion. Console hardware was up 69 percent at $1.88 billion while portable hardware was up only 2 percent at $1.13 billion.

We also have the corrected life-to-date install bases

We also have the corrected life-to-date install bases for the U.S. The PS2 through November was at 35.8 million users. Very close behind is the GBA with 34.3 million. In the more modern battle of the portables, the DS stands at 7.6 million versus the PSP's 5.7 million. The Xbox 360 has sold 3.4 million units in the U.S., and the newly launched Wii and PS3 come in at 476K and 197K, respectively. Along with the Wii console, 270K Wii remotes and 153K nunchuks were also sold.

Xbox 360: 3.4 million
Wii: 476 thousand

PSP is doing a little better in the US. Who are actually buying these things though don't know. Kids who want a image I guess.

It's weird, software for PSP didn't sell too well in November. GTA;VCS only managed to sell 110K for the whole month, but the PSP did over 400K. Are old gamers not buying games and all the software sales are from new adopters?

It's partically 1:1 for the software sales in November, if not less.

Its possible that they are simply buying the handheld first as a christmas present. Then getting some games later in December.
