Microsoft Exec: Xbox One Black Friday Sales Were ‘Really Strong’, PS4 Sold Well Too

“My sources tell me both systems sold very well,” says Microsoft’s Aaron Greenberg.

Black Friday sales of the Xbox One were quite impressive, according to Microsoft. The company is pointing to a number of different deals that were offered during the biggest shopping day of the year including some bundles that saw the console fly off the shelves. Microsoft’s Aaron Greenberg stated that the Black Friday sales were really strong and that his sources told him that both the PS4 and Xbox One sold really well. We’ll have to take the company’s word for it right now, considering that Microsoft is still tallying the final numbers up and likely won’t be releasing them anytime soon.

Still, it’s far from a surprise to hear their bundles were getting lots of people to buy them, especially when you take into account that the other consoles currently on the market also had big sale days recently. The Wii U actually took home the best day when it comes to people who were buying consoles from Target stores. One industry analyst says that the PS4 was the biggest seller when it comes to Best Buy.

Considering those are two of the biggest brick and mortar retailers in the country, one has to wonder what Microsoft could have done in order to count it’s Black Friday as “really successful.” Perhaps the console didn’t win the day, but had quite a better sales number than the year prior. Until we actually get a look at the numbers, we’ll just have to guess. The company is also likely leaning hard on making sure it has a good Cyber Monday to follow up on Black Friday. We do know that the Xbox One and Sony’s PS4 were named by Adobe as being the best selling devices among the broader category on Black Friday.

    You have many details wrong. Target.com (not the brick and mortar store) saw Wii U sell the most. And the main reason PS4 and XB1 weren’t selling well on Target.com was because their big deals were in-store only.

    XB1 seems to have sold best at Target and Walmart, while PS4 sold best at Best Buy and Amazon. http://blog.infoscout.co/games-trump-console-sales-this-black-friday/?utm_campaign=shareaholic&utm_medium=twitter&utm_source=socialnetwork

    The sales breakdown described by Infoscout seems to indicate a statistical tie between PS4 and XB1 since the difference is probably within the margin of error.

    “Xbox One sold really well” “PS4 sold well also”

    Then why are you hiding your Xbox One sales numbers dumb*ss?

    You talk about PS4 sales more than you do your own sales. You brag about sales when it is convenient. Even SCE’s marketing execs don’t act pathetic like you do.

    I wish I got payed a check to sit on Twitter. Eat sht Greenburg. Nobody believes your act and the dumb sht that comes out your mouth. Big goofy fk.

    • Michael

      When sony show their vita sales, ms will show theirs…lol

    • Riggerto

      The low selling Vita (12 million) is about 3 million sales behind the low selling Xbox (15 million) worldwide.

    • Starman

      not even close …you fangirls crack me up … when first launched they had xb1 stuck on 5 mil for 2 years , now stuck on 15 mil .. for the next year … but sony keeps selling with nothing to offer or do but play under developed 3rd party , so stfu like i keep telling you to do … if were so mature and didn’t care .. as you claim i’m the opposite of that .. why are you always here representing for sony ? answer that fangirl ..lol

    • Derrick Lee

      Starman let it go, this generation is over PS4 won. Just accept it. If Xbox can’t even destroy the PS4 on black Friday as you predicted with its better lineup and deals, it’s done.

    • sgt_hammertime

      the surface tablet is selling well, they don’t release sales number for that either even though it’s almost a $4 billion a year business for them.
      I don’t think this has anything to do with Xbox One, I think it’s just a company wide policy to not release sales number for their devices that has now spread to the xbox division.

  • legacy

    Nobody’s dumb enough to believe this but fanboys, release some numbers so we can see for ourselves, and keep sony name out your mouth we know what they did, focus on your own

    • Starman

      they didn’t do sh*t but what fangirls and fangirl sites say … and they already said no confirmation from the “wait station” … it wasn’t sony reporting … iot was other fangirls , like yourself …so stfu and stop fangirling … like that fag*t ‘mkbot’

    Guys, guys, guys.

    Microsoft don’t release sales numbers anymore. Remember? They don’t matter. Only numbers of anyone who’s ever subscribed at any point to Live matters now.

    Sales matter only to idiots. If Microsoft releases sales numbers, clearly it’s a sign of desperation.

    Right? 😉

    • Starman

      stfu “his@$$wipe”………

  • Mr Xrat

    Greenturd can’t even spin it this year. Still, that’s what happens when you put all your effort into a flagging console in one day of the year – if the competition even does slightly worse, the Xbone still loses.
