Microsoft must be pretty happy to hear that Black Friday proved to be more than generous to the software giant, where more than 750,000 Xbox 360 consoles were sold throughout the US. Three quarters of a million units surpassed the company’s own expectations, and I am quite sure that a fair number of bottles of champers were popped at the Xbox division of Microsoft. It certainly is a surprise to see the Xbox 360 dominate Black Friday sales when it came to consoles, considering how it has aged (gracefully) while having to see off competition from Nintendo’s spanking new Wii U console.
In fact, when you think about it, the Nintendo Wii U did not do too well as expected – where it shifted more than 400,000 units, which is slightly more than half of what the much older Xbox 360 console sold. So much for young blood pushing the old man of video game consoles aside, eh? No idea on what Sony’s figures for the PS3 and PS Vita are like, perhaps we would never know although we look forward to relieving a cat one of its nine lives to find out.
