On Black Friday, Microsoft’s Xbox One outsold Sony’s PlayStation 4 console. For Cyber Monday however, new data shows that the PS4 outperformed the Xbox One by becoming the best-selling consumer electronics product online.
On Black Friday, the Xbox One outsold the PS4, becoming the fifth best-selling electronics during the United States’ biggest shopping day of the year. The only other products that outsold the Xbox One on Black Friday were the iPads, Samsung 4K TVs, LG TVs and the MacBook Pro, according to Adobe’s annual Black Friday sales report (via GameRant).
Adobe didn’t differentiate between the Xbox One and the Xbox One S nor did it provide data on which of its bundles were popular. However, Adobe did publish a list of products that are potentially out of stock, and it included multiple bundles of both the PS4 and the Xbox One.
Microsoft may have ruled Black Friday sales, but it looks like its victory was shortlived. Cyber Monday, the first Monday after Thanksgiving, is the biggest online shopping event in the country. Adobe’s Digital Insights report shows that Sony’s PlayStation 4 is the clear winner, outperforming Microsoft’s Xbox One sales in the U.S. The data also shows that the PS4 was able to outsell the Xbox One for the whole month of November.
Sony’s PS4, is the best-selling electronics product for Cyber Monday, while the Xbox One comes in at second place. Both consoles actually outsold Samsung 4K TVs, iPads and Amazon’s Fire products on Monday, according to VentureBeat.
“Cyber Monday is on track to be the biggest online shopping day ever, surpassing our forecast by almost $27 million, or 0.8 percent,” Adobe Digital Insights director and analyst Tamara Gaffney said. “This indicates that consumers still had more appetite for online shopping despite the incredible volume of online sales on Black Friday. Prices are expected to start climbing after today as retailers shift attention to extend the season late into December with quick shipping deals and the option to click and collect in store.”
