Sales tracker Info Scout is reporting that 17% of consoles sold on Black Friday were Wii U systems. We already know that the Splatoon and Super Smash Bros Wii U bundle was a hit at a number of retailers including Target. As you might expect, the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One performed better during Black Friday with Info Scout reporting that 42% share was on PlayStation 4 and 41% share was Xbox One.
Due to popular demand, we’ve augmented the post to include a breakdown by major gaming console.
At Target and Walmart, the Xbox One + Gears of War bundle barely outsold its rival PS4 + Uncharted Bundle. Yet, strong PS4 sales at Amazon.com and other retailers were enough to edge out the Xbox One for top sales this Black Friday season.
Here’s how Info Scout work: More than 300,000 Americans snap pictures of their everyday shopping receipts via InfoScout’s mobile apps: Shoparoo, Receipt Hog and Receipt Lottery. The first 250,000 receipts reported from shopping trips on Thanksgiving night and Black Friday were analyzed to support the real-time insights above.
