Report: Microsoft Xbox One beats Sony PS4 in Black Friday sales


Adobe today released its 2016 online shopping data for Black Friday and Thanksgiving Day. Black Friday set a new record by surpassing the three-billion-dollar mark for the first time at $3.34 billion (21.6 percent growth YoY) while Thanksgiving accounted for the remaining $1.93 billion. Black Friday became the first day in retail history to drive over one billion dollars in mobile revenue at $1.2 billion, a 33 percent growth YoY.

Based on their report, Microsoft Xbox was among the five top-selling electronic products on Black Friday. And since PS4 was not on the top five list, we can assume that Xbox One sales surpassed PS4 sales on the Black Friday day. But for the entire season so far (Nov. 1 – 24), PlayStation 4 is the best-selling video game console, followed by Microsoft Xbox One. PS4 is leading the overall sales of November because their next generation console PS4 Pro went on sale earlier this month. Microsoft’s next generation console “Project Scorpio” is coming next year with support for true 4K games and VR.
