Black Friday has passed and the usual suspects, from the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X to Nintendo’s recently released Switch OLED, were in demand. However, according to the Adobe Digital Economy Index (as reported by Business Insider), it’s the Xbox Series S that was the top-selling console during Black Friday sales. This is based on “over one trillion visits to US retail sites.”

Along with its $300 price tag, the availability of the console also made it a prime choice for many consumers. Chip shortages also continue to be an issue for the PS5 and Xbox Series X – there’s just not enough supply to meet demand. Xbox Game Pass is great but it also doesn’t hurt that the highly anticipated Halo Infinite is releasing on December 8th, thus making the Xbox Series S a great value option for playing it.

Unfortunately, those seeking the other consoles may not have much luck in 2022 either. Nintendo will produce 20 percent fewer Switch consoles for the fiscal year due to chip shortages. Sony has also reportedly cut back on PS5 production due to the same and Xbox boss Phil Spencer notes that console supplies may continue to be in short supply heading into next year.
