The Xbox Series S is the most popular game console on Black Friday

Another major factor that played a hand in the Series S coming out on top is that there is still a parts shortage for most consoles being made around the world. And it’s not just affecting the big three as even smaller companies in the console wars like Atari with their Atari VCS and Intellivision (who have yet to release the Amico), as well as cell phone providers like Apple and Samsung, are also dealing with the same shortage issues. One more factor for this comes down to convenience, as people are looking to upgrade their gaming systems and are not too keen on waiting for Sony or Nintendo to get what they want, especially if they want it in time for the holidays. Through a weird set of various issues, convenience, and personal buying habits, it looks like Xbox may come out of 2021 on top with the Series S leading the charge.

The Xbox Series S is the console that stands atop the mountain in the Black Friday sales reports, which has produced some interesting outcomes. According to Business Insider, video game spending was up this past weekend in general, but with all of the highly sought-after console alternatives, like the PS5, the Nintendo Switch OLED, and even its sister-console the Series X, the Series S came out on top overall. According to an Adobe analysis, “nearly one trillion visits to U.S. retail sites” and their related purchases were measured. The system’s major selling point is that it was the cheapest of the lot that did the most, as it costs only $300 and can do almost everything the Series X does, with the exception of having a disc reader because the Series S is an all-digital console.

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.
