Nintendo moved more than 1.75 million consoles in November, hypes Black Friday sales

Engadget :Kyoto's gaming giant isn't content with bragging about its Black Friday sales alone -- it wants the world to know how it did for the entire month of November. According to NPD data, Nintendo sold over 1.75 million hardware units last month, marking the company's 36th 30-day sales period since 2004 to breach the seven digit threshold.

1.75M... combined Wii, Wii U, DS, 3DS.

Sounds great until you realize that it wasn't Black Friday, it was the whole month of November, and sales were pretty heavy on the DS and Wii, where future Nintendo software revenue will be pretty slim, thanks to limited 3rd party releases and used software sales driving those platforms.

I notice the Wii U is pictured, though, as if to imply it was the major force behind those 1.75M sales (it's not). A little positive spin for it can't hurt the gaming industry, I guess.
