"The Microsoft console alongside the Nintendo Switch dominated the holiday season"
and Xbox Series S had hit #1 until it sold out after being in first place in the UK on Amazon!
Xbox and Call of Duty top Black Friday
The Black Friday season is in right now and consoles always sell big during this time. It is no different this year as gaming products have dominated sales this holiday season. More specifically, the Xbox Series X has won the Black Friday sale being the most sold product during this time.
Xbox Series X beat the sales of merchandise toys like the cartoon character “Bluey“. Even singular games didn’t beat the sales of the consoles as Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II took the No.3 spot. Hence, the console has won the shopping holiday by a huge margin according to Washington Examiner.
- Xbox Series X topped the Black Friday sales chart this year with Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2.
- Nintendo Switch held the No.1 spot in sales during the Thanksgiving period, alongside God of War Ragnarok.
- No PlayStation console made an appearance in the top 5.
Modern Warfare II selling so well alongside the Series X is probably an effect of the Microsoft and Activision Blizzard acquisition. PlayStation has the marketing rights to the franchise but the Xbox and Call of Duty double still ruled charts. So, maybe the consumers are relating the product to Xbox due to the ongoing deal.
What say you fellow SW friends? Are you surprised that the Xbox Series X outsold the Series S? I know I was surprised. What are your thoughts?
