Microsoft sells more than 750,000 Xbox 360’s for Black Friday

Microsoft just released their Xbox 360 sales report for Black Friday, proudly touting that they have sold over 750,000 Xbox 360 consoles, well exceeding the company’s forecast expectations.

Here is the initial report from Major Nelson‘s blog:

  • Xbox 360 sold more than 750,000 consoles in the U.S. alone –exceeding internal forecasts.
  • Three month Xbox LIVE Gold Subscription sales increased more than 50 percent compared to last year’s Black Friday week.
  • We saw incredible activity on Xbox over the weekend. For example, on Sunday alone we had more than 14 million people on Xbox LIVE across the world, racking up more than 72 million hours of use in just one day.
  • Compared to 2011, we’ve seen a 43 percent increase in U.S. entertainment application hours logged on Xbox LIVE during the week of Black Friday.

We say, there’s a gut feeling that a particular Holiday Bundle, along with Halo 4 and Call of Duty: Black Ops II, had something to do with their latest success.
