Microsoft today shared some internal numbers regarding Xbox 360 platform sales performance over the Black Friday weekend. Microsoft sold over 750,000 consoles over the weekend in US alone. This number trumps the Nintendo next generation Wii U’s sales number of 400,000 units.
- Xbox 360 sold more than 750,000 consoles in the U.S. alone –exceeding internal forecasts.
- Three month Xbox LIVE Gold Subscription sales increased more than 50 percent compared to last year’s Black Friday week.
- We saw incredible activity on Xbox over the weekend. For example, on Sunday alone we had more than 14 million people on Xbox LIVE across the world, racking up more than 72 million hours of use in just one day.
- Compared to 2011, we’ve seen a 43 percent increase in U.S. entertainment application hours logged on Xbox LIVE during the week of Black Friday.
I think Nintendo is having tough time competing with Microsoft and Sony.
