The poor economy isn't slowing sales of Nintendo's Wii gaming system. New figures show the Wii outsold Microsoft's Xbox 360 game console by almost three to one in November despite very strong sales of the Xbox 360 on the day after Thanksgiving.

Sales of the Wii more than doubled in November to more than 2 million units sold. The handheld Nintendo DS also posted strong sales.
