Microsoft's Major Nelson has casually dropped off some numbers of the Xbox 360's sales performance from the recent Black Friday shopping weekend in The USA, revealing that sales exceeded internal forecasts with over 750,000 consoles sold in the Us alone.

Nelson also revealed some other points of note from Xbox 360's 2012 holiday weekend:
  • 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.
The total sellthrough number is a little down on the Xbox 360's 800,000 Black Friday 2011 figure, but still rather significant when contrast with Nintendo's US launch week for the brand new Wii U, which the company revealed yesterday reached the 400,000 mark, with the original Wii at 300,000, the 3DS at 250,000, and DS at 275,000.
