Despite its huge popularity and rave reviews, Skyward Sword ranks only ninth in November game software sales within the United States.  The only Nintendo title to make the top ten list, this most recent installment in the Zelda series has been out for less than a month and when viewed objectively, has done very well in sales.  Another point in Skyward Sword’s defense is that except for Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception, which ranks seventh in overall sales, the eight titles higher on the list are multiplatform (the top four, alone, appear on the 360, PS3, and PC).  Overall, this is nothing to worry about, as Skyward Sword is selling well in the both the US and the global markets.  Hit the jump to see the full list of the ten best-selling games in the US of November 2011.
