NFS: Hot Pursuit races to 400k in the US in November

Despite some quality arcade racers being released in 2010, the genre has had something of a rough year. Racing fans take heart, though, as it appears that Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit is off to a reasonable start. After the NPD revealed that the game ranked seventh in November's sales figures, GamesIndustry.biz reports that Hot Pursuit managed to sell 417,000 copies last month.

Granted, it's not as high as many of the blockbusters we've seen lately but, after the cruelly low launch numbers seen for Split/Second and Blur, the arcade racing genre needs all the good news it can get.
