In November, the video game industry broke their sales record with $2.63 billion in sales of hardware and software in that month alone.   The Los Angeles Times reports that lead-scare toy recalls have led some parents to purchase video games instead of traditional toys. The best selling games of the month were:

  • Call of Duty
    4" Modern Warfare (rated M for Mature)
  • Super Mario Galaxy (rated E for Everyone)
  • Assassins Creed (rated M for Mature)

In related news, a new study from Harris Interactive reports that one out of three parents uses video game ratings to monitor their child’s play, and even fewer actually understand what those ratings mean.
