    I just checked the internal data for our Black Friday numbers* and wanted to let you know that over the Holiday weekend:
    Xbox 360 sold more than 750,000 consoles in the U.S. alone –exceeding internal forecasts.
    Three month Xbox LIVE Gold Subscription sales increased more than 50 percent compared to last year’s Black Friday week.
    We saw incredible activity on Xbox over the weekend. For example, on Sunday alone we had more than 14 million people on Xbox LIVE across the world, racking up more than 72 million hours of use in just one day.
    Compared to 2011, we’ve seen a 43 percent increase in U.S. entertainment application hours logged on Xbox LIVE during the week of Black Friday.
    * Sunday, Nov. 18 – Friday, Nov. 23

Sweeeeeeeeet!

Edit - And people thought this gen of consoles were dead. Pfft.



What's the number of 360 in Black Friday 2011 ?

Really impressive XBL numbers and sales in it's 7th year. Makes me wonder how much Halo 4 and BOII has sold this week

Also looks like Halo got a huge boost and did better than forecasted

Down about 30% over last year but still, this is really impressive!
