Xbox 360 doblegó por completo al PS3 en el Black Friday

Microsoft difundió un comunicado de prensa donde asegura que el Xbox 360 vendió tres unidades por cada PlayStation 3 en el famoso y alocado Black Friday (el día del año en que los gringos pierden más la compostura para aprovechar las buenas ofertas, en pocas palabras).

Don Mattrick, presidente de Xbox, también anunció:

“Las ventas récord en el “viernes negro” de Estados Unidos, en conjunto con nuestra existente base global de 25 millones, y una comunidad online de más de 14 millones de miembros de Xbox Live, pusieron las bases para un moméntum en ventas contínuo y a nivel mundial para el 2009″.

Y en cuanto a los juegos? Aparentemente los que más se vendieron en el mencionado día fueron Gears of War 2, Fable II y Lips, por lo que podemos imaginar que todo tipo de personas compró la consola y/o juegos.

Por otro lado, el comunicado informa que las ventas del Xbox 360 en Europa, territorio “sonyero” por excelencia, han aumentado en un 400%.

Todo se ve excelente para Microsoft en estos momentos.

Xbox 360 Registers Biggest Black Friday in Its History

Xbox 360 consoles and games sell at record levels; outsells PlayStation 3 by three-to-one ratio.

REDMOND, Wash., Dec. 1 /PRNewswire-K/ — Microsoft Corp.’s Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system kicked off the holidays with record- breaking console sales on one of the biggest shopping weekends of the year in the U.S. Retailers reported Xbox 360 console sales over the Black Friday weekend were on pace to beat previous years, outselling the PlayStation 3 by a three-to-one ratio and estimating a 25 percent increase from Xbox 360 Black Friday sales figures from 2007.

Strong game sales rounded out a historic Black Friday for Xbox 360, with record-paced software sales continuing for key Microsoft titles, such as “Gears of War 2,” “Fable II,” and “Lips.” Xbox 360 continues to have the highest game attach rate of any console at 8.1 games per console.

“We entered into the Black Friday sales period with cautious optimism, knowing that dollar for dollar, Xbox 360 offers more social entertainment value than any other console on the market,” said Don Mattrick, senior vice president of the Interactive Entertainment Business at Microsoft. “Record Black Friday sales in the U.S., coupled with our existing global install base of 25 million and an online community of more than 14 million Xbox LIVE members, have laid the groundwork for continued global sales momentum in 2009.”

Xbox 360 sales have also surged worldwide since the September price drop, outselling the PlayStation 3 week over week across Europe. Console sales in Europe are up as much as 400 percent, with sales nearly double year over year and reaching 7 million consoles sold this generation.

With a mass-market price point starting at $199.99 worldwide (estimated retail price) for Xbox 360 Arcade, a games lineup of more broad-appeal social titles than any other platform, and the recently launched New Xbox Experience, Xbox 360 is leading the industry and inviting everyone to play.
