Black Friday has been kind to Microsoft, as last week saw over 750,000 Xbox 360 consoles sold across the US. Sales figures exceeded the company's own expectations, though we can only imagine how elated the manufacturer must be.
The 360's Black Friday domination certainly comes as a surprise, given its age and the competition from Nintendo's new Wii U console. Wii U sales were actually lower than expected, clocking in at over 400,000 units sold over the same week. Nintendo has blamed supply shortages for the low sales figure, though the company saw an overall successful Black Friday through unexpectedly high Wii and handheld sales.
Sony has yet to reveal numbers for the PlayStation 3 and Vita. Should make for an interesting comparison when they do.
