An unlikely video game console is dominating sales on one of the biggest shopping days of the year: The $300 Xbox Series S console from Microsoft, according to the Adobe Digital Economy Index.
Though Sony's PlayStation 5, Microsoft's Xbox Series X, and Nintendo's Switch OLED models remain the most highly sought after consoles, chip shortages and high demand have rendered them nearly impossible to find.
The Xbox Series S, on the other hand, is readily available at a variety of retailers right now — from GameStop to Best Buy.
Among the "over one trillion visits to U.S. retail sites" measured by Adobe, the Xbox Series S was among the top selling items thus far for Black Friday 2021.
The most popular game console on Black Friday 2021 isn't the PlayStation 5 — it's the $300 Xbox Series S
The $300 Xbox Series S is outselling the competition on Black Friday 2021, likely because it's the only one that's actually available to buy.
