Xbox 360 moves 750,000 units in US during Black Friday week

Microsoft has revealed Xbox 360 US sales data for the week of Black Friday, announcing the results of the sales period have exceeded the firm’s internal forecasts.

360 moved over 750,000 consoles in the US last week, bolstered greatly by discounts at a variety of retail and online outlets during the later portion of the period.

Microsoft notes that the retail reporting calendar for the period only includes data from Sunday, November 18th through Friday, November 23rd. Though they’ve yet to be accounted for, it’s likely the consoles moved during the weekend and Cyber Monday would add a considerable amount to the 750,000 recorded sales.

The company added that Xbox Live saw over 14m users online this past Sunday, who together hit 72m hours of use during just the single day.

Halo 4 exceeded expectations with "impressive" sales during the week as well.
