Unless things have changed, Nov is the largest shopping month of the year. It contains Black Friday, after all. December actually has an entire week where sales plummet, since holiday shopping is over.

My guess is Sony couldn't get enough stock for Nov, so those sales poured into Dec.

(that's what I thought too, but I wasn't willing to argue over something I wasn't sure about

It may be an NPD thing: Cyber Monday has reportedly passed Black Friday, and it falls in December's NPD.

True. But, that is a recent thing.  I actually think last year was the first time that happened. Either way, it definitely wasn't the case when the PS2 was out, or even the Wii.

Nope. We get these anomalies from time to time.

Well you can still preorder them, so maybe that's the cause of these fluctuations

Ah, yep. Thought you guys were talking about December for some reason. Could still happen - just very unlikely.

Dec NPD is usually higher than Nov NPD.
