Huge Sales for Xbox 360 on Black Friday

Sales of the Xbox 360 soared during the Black Friday sales period and massively exceeded Microsoft's expectations with final sales figures hitting 750,000 units.

Sales of three-month Xbox Live Gold subscriptions also increased by more than 50 percent from 2011's holiday sales. Halo 4 sales have also exceeded expectations from Microsoft with Halo 4 making a reported 220 million dollars in day-one sales.

This is great news for Microsoft, especially with the recent release of Nintendo's Wii U at the states and proves that people are still happy to buy consoles that are coming to the end of their generation.

Xbox 360 will also continue to offer people some awesome offers throughout the holiday season with a variety of special offers and pricing plans. A $50-off pricing promotion on select Xbox 360 consoles and three holiday bundles that include everything your family will need to experience all Xbox 360 has to offer are available now at participating retailers through Jan. 5.

About / Bio
I'm a lifelong gamer and share my passion with the world in the form of streaming my games on twitch.tv - www.twitch.tv/terrorhertz and making YouTube videos about all the games I enjoy. I'm also a budding games journalist here :)

My gaming journey began in the Christmas 1992 when aged 6, I got my Sega Mega Drive with Sonic One and World Cup Italia 90. Since then I have played and own pretty much every console since then, just check my collection video on my YouTube channel.

Now days I mainly play PC games and got into the PC side of things when I started playing Everquest in 2005. This game opened my eyes to the mmorpg genre and since then have played most MMO's of which World of Warcraft was my most played. Right now I'm playing and streaming DayZ and FIFA with a few other games thrown in here and there. I'm a games journalist and write weekly articles and monthly reviews and previews whilst also uploading 3+ videos weekly to my YouTube channel where you can find loads of awesome HD gaming videos - www.youtube.com/terrorhertzhd

I've worked as a hardware/software technician for Apple the past 4 years and really enjoy working with computers. I have built/modded/overclocked PC's since around 2007 and it's a massive interest of mine. My other hobbies include video editing, carp fishing, golf and playing guitar.
