Black Friday has come and gone, and many holiday shoppers got their first chance to pick up the new Xbox One and PlayStation 4 consoles. According to data compiled by InfoScout, the Xbox One outsold the PlayStation 4 on North America’s biggest shopping day of the year.
InfoScout’s research polled shoppers at Wal-Mart and Target, and showed that there was considerably more interest in the Xbox One. Across the board, availability of the two consoles was slim during the shopping day.
While it might not paint the complete picture in terms of the supply chains for both the Xbox One and PS4, it does indicate that the consumers are interested in the Xbox One, despite so many missteps by Microsoft leading up to the launch of the console.
The sample of Black Friday sales data from InfoScout puts the Xbox One in first place. Followed by the Xbox 360 in second place, the PlayStation 3 in third, and the PlayStation 4 in fourth. It also looks like the Wii U failed to generate any buzz with consumers, as the console finished only above the Original Wii in fifth place.
