November TRSTS Update
December 16, 2003 - In the race to be the best-selling video game this holiday, only one competitor can get the checkered flag. In November, that game was Mario Kart®: Double Dash!!™, exclusively for Nintendo GameCube™. According to NPDFunworld's November Toy Retail Sales Tracking Service (TRSTS), approximately 528,000 copies of Mario Kart: Double Dash!! were sold, easily besting any other video game on any system.
This feat is even more remarkable when you realize that Mario Kart: Double Dash!! was in stores for only 14 days in November, following its launch on Nov. 17.
Additional Nintendo highlights from the November TRSTS data include:
o Nintendo GameCube: +61 percent
o Xbox: +5 percent
o PlayStation 2: -36 percent
o Nintendo GameCube: +60 percent
o Xbox: +59 percent
o PlayStation 2: +21 percent
