Xbox 360 outsells Wii U on Black Friday

Nintendo had a good week during Thanksgiving selling 400,000 of their new Wii U consoles. Unfortunately for them their competition, the Xbox 360, sold 750,000 Xbox 360's during the same period. This probably wasn't the result Nintendo was looking for. IGN has the full story.


Microsoft has revealed that 750,000 Xbox 360 consoles were sold in the United States during the week of Black Friday. The number represents sales between Sunday, November 18th and Friday, November 23rd and is down slightly compared to the 960,000 consoles Microsoft sold on Black Friday Last year.

By comparison, this year's figure nearly doubles the 400,000 Wii U consoles sold by Nintendo during the same week.
