Microsoft has confirmed it sold a massive 960,000 consoles last week, 800,000 of which were sold in a single 24-hour period.

It was a good week for Kinect too, with over 750,000 sold combining both standalone and bundled figures.

Best Buy's Home Entertainment boss Chris Homeister said: "We have seen tremendous excitement from customers for our hot holiday gaming offers."

Nintendo seemed pretty pleased with the 500,000 Wii units it sold last week, along with 500,000 copies each of Zelda: Skyward Sword and Super Mario 3D Land, both of which broke franchise records.

Microsoft will be busting out the giant wine glasses tonight then.
