PlayStation 4 had an overwhelming demand during Black Friday, which resulted in 2 million consoles sold according to an Ubisoft employee. Based on Events Specialist and Team Leader Sunny Sanghera’s reported on Twitter, this is a huge figure for Sony’s console, pushed not only by sales but only by bundles, like the one with Watch Dogs 2.
While it’s not an official statement coming from neither Sony nor sales trackers or analyst, it really gives us an idea of how much in demand PlayStation 4 currently is, thanks to new PS4 Slim and Pro models. Also, the news is supported by UK official sales, that saw PS4 breaking its own all-time sales record registered on last year’s Black Friday.
On the other hand, Microsoft provided an official statement where it says that Xbox One, also thanks to the Xbox One S coming cheaper at $249, had a “strong demand” throughout Black Friday. “There was strong demand for Xbox hardware, accessories, games and Xbox Live engagement on Black Friday, based on initial results, with a strong start to the holiday season,” VP of Xbox marketing Mike Nichols commented.
Over two million #PS4 consoles sold worldwide this week with a day remaining…. (That Watch Dogs 2 price promotion effect)
