And the Winner of the Black Friday Console War is...the Xbox One?
Filed under: XBOX ONE, PS4, XBOX 360, PS3

Shopping market research firm InfoScout surveyed Black Friday shoppers at both Walmart and Target regarding which video game console they purchased. The answer really shocked me, as the Xbox One took the number 1 spot with the Xbox 360 right behind.

Now the Xbox 360 numbers could be largely attributed to Walmart's Black Friday mark-down. $99 is really hard to pass up. InfoScout has also attributed some of the Xbox One's success over the PlayStation 4 due to the PS4's limited availability. The console was so highly preordered, not many stores had any extras in stock for people to purchase on Black Friday.

It should sadly surprise no one that the Wii U and Wii took the bottom two spots. Since the Wii U released earlier this year and most of the games people are excited for release next year, the console is not exactly on many people's radar for the holiday season.

I believe it... Sony screwed up and did not have enough inventory available in the retail channel. I couldn't find one anywhere. On the other hand, the Xbone is actually in stock at some places.

I'm shocked that you're shocked.

A lot of people will go with XBox simply because they already have a 360. And there are more 360s in the USA than PS3s.
