Xbox 360's September victory over the Nintendo Wii's hardware unit sales appears to have been short-lived. The Wii and DS commanded hardware unit sales in the US for October, according to The NPD Group, with sales of 519,000 and 458,000, respectively, easily capturing the top two hardware slots.

By comparison, Xbox 360 sold 366,000 (down from September's 528,000) and PlayStation 3 sold 121,000 (on par with September's 119,000).

It appears that with October's sales, Wii and DS are already beginning to lift off as early holiday shoppers initiate the rush. Here, Harrison explains what Nintendo will do to maintain its current momentum, how many consoles it plans to deliver to shelves in the coming months and what Nintendo is doing about competitors' holiday pricing strategies.

    The guitar hero on Xbox360 was waaaaaaaaaaaaay over estimated I think.

    Or wait let me check to see what vgchartz had.

    hmmm- yup 700k for vgchartz vs 380k. I thought that 700k was a bit high
