It might be six years old and have a replacement lurking right around the corner, but numbers say that the Xbox 360 is still one hell of a gaming console. Microsoft announced that it sold 750,000 units thanks to the shopping frenzy surrounding the Black Friday week.

The above number handily trumps the achievements of some of Microsoft’s major competitors, including Nintendo’s spanking new Wii U, which was plagued by stock shortages during the same period.

The success of the Xbox 360 was likely aided by the launch of this year’s top blockbuster video game titles such as Halo 4, Call of Duty: Black Ops II, and Assassin’s Creed III. In any case, the strong sales performance of the console will likely help it retain the best-selling status which it’s been holding to over the past couple of years.
