As indicated by the data of the Adobe digital economy index (collected by Business Insider) Xbox Series S has been the best-selling console in the United States during the Black Friday, after analyzing a trillion stores to stores in Line and survey more than a thousand retailers. From Games industry they point out that the same thing has not happened in the United Kingdom, where the best-selling console has been Nintendo Switch (adding the base model, OLED and switch Lite).
The case of Xbox Series S can be understood for several reasons. First, its price (€299.99) is especially attractive given its benefits and without ceasing to be a new generation console. Of course, here also influences the fact that it is the only machine next-gene that does not present excessive stock problems, which does not happen with X or PlayStation 5 series (digital or with a reader), and it has also been found in PACKS below your base price. Both the price factor and availability, we recently knew that Xbox Series S would have exceeded the sales of his older sister in several key markets, a fact that he was already predicting Phil Spencer himself from a month before the launch of both consoles.
As it said, sales at UK during the Black Friday (which has actually occupied several weeks) have gone by other defeats, as indicated by the data of JFK physical games. Of course, the fact that Switch has been the best-selling console, with an increase of 567% with respect to the previous week, the most popular titles of the same platform are also accompanied. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe, like every Christmas period and its eve, has returned to rise with the first sales station, followed by FIFA 22 (among all the platforms) and the edition for switch of Minecraft, which rises as the fourth best-selling game in the UK for Nintendo’s hybrid, behind Animal Crossing: New Horizons, Mario Kart and Mario Odyssey.
In the fourth place last week in UK is Call of Duty: Vanguard, despite having registered the worst release of the franchise in Spain, and the six games that complete the Top 10 are the following: Marvel’s Guarders of the Galaxy, Bright diamond Pokémon (it was already the second-best premiere of a game this year in the United Kingdom), Just Dance 2022, Animal Crossing: New Horizons, Far Cry 6 and Mario Party Superstars.
