Xbox won Black Friday, one tracker reports


Xbox One and 360 lead Black Friday sales

The Xbox One led Black Friday sales at major retailers, including Walmart, Target, Best Buy, GameStop, and RadioShack, according to Info Scout. Xbox One accounted for 31% of console sales. Surprisingly, the 360 came in second, accounting for 30%, while the PS3 and PS4 each pulled 15%.

We don't talk about Wii U sales.

Of course, this is thought to stem from limited PS4 availability more than anything. As we know, Sony isn't hurting. In its UK release's first 48 hours alone, the PS4 outsold the Xbox One's total sales by 100,000 units.

It's also worth noting that among InfoScout's 102,000 Black Friday receipts, the data comes from the "slightly over 1,500" receipts that included console or game sales. It could be a nice representative sample size, but it's not hard numbers. Call of Duty: Ghosts led software sales, followed by the money printing Disney Infinity and Sjylanders: Swap Force.

I'm curious to see if the tepid response to Call of Duty: Ghosts might finally lead to a drop in series sales. There hasn't been an indication of that thus far, though. Perhaps those feeling burnt will be wary plunking down cash for the next outing?
