The market research firm puts the Xbox 360 console in the number 1 spot in the US for the sixth month in a row. According to the data, Microsoft sold 1.4 million units during the month of November, compared with 325,000 in the previous month.

The figures also show that the Xbox 360 console attracted 50% of the spend on gaming consoles during that month.

The release of the Kinect, which sold 2.5 million units in 25 days, has certainly been good for sales, and it looks like the Xbox 360 will dominate sales over the holidays.
