Microsoft has sold 600,000 of its new Xbox 360 video game consoles in the United States since the gadget’s November launch, an analyst for market researcher The NPD Group said on Friday.

The Xbox 360 debuted to much fanfare on Nov. 22 in North America, where the unit has been in short supply. Analysts, video game publishers and retailers have said shipments during the key holiday season fell short of expectations.

Microsoft last week confirmed its target of selling between 4.5 million and 5.5 million Xbox 360 consoles during the current business year, which ends June 30, 2006.
