Xbox One tops console purchases for select retailers on Black Friday

New, 127 comments

Microsoft's Xbox One was the most commonly purchased console from retailers Target and Walmart on Black Friday, according to a survey from Infoscout.

Xbox One accounted for 31 percent of consoles purchased, while the PlayStation 4 made up approximately 15 percent. The Xbox 360 ranked second with 30 percent, while the PlayStation 3 accounted for another 15 percent. The Wii U came in fifth with six percent, while the Wii made up a mere one percent of purchases.

The survey does not include the number of consoles purchased, or how many customers were surveyed. The success of both Xbox consoles can be "largely attributed" to limited availability of the PS4, Infoscout said. Discounts on the Xbox 360 at Walmart also likely helped boost numbers.

Top games purchased included Call of Duty: Ghosts, Disney Infinity and Skylanders Swap Force, while Killzone: Shadow Fall and Batman: Arkham City took the lowest rank. You can view the full list at Infoscout.
