Xbox 360 sells 750K over Holiday weekend in U.S.

The Xbox 360 looks to be doing quite well this Holiday shopping season already, with a staggering 750,000 units apparently being sold over the Black Friday weekend (11/18 ? 11/23), in the U.S. alone.

These figures come directly from Major Nelson and are based on internal Microsoft figures.

A few more stats were disclosed as well:

  • 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.

Impressive numbers indeed, and they make Nintendo’s 400k Wii U launch figures seems just a little underwhelming.
