Xbox Series X and Sonic Frontiers represent, for different reasons, two sides of the same coin in the world of video games.
The SEGA title, which you can still find discounted for a few hours on Amazon among other things, has now made headlines only for negative aspects.
So much so that there is a fan who has decided to turn it into Death Stranding, or at least the closest thing possible to Hideo Kojima’s title.
And while Phil Spencer said he was concerned about stocks of Xbox Series X, meanwhile, on Black Friday they bring it home.
As VGC reports, in fact, the Microsoft console was one of the most requested products of the last Black Friday.
A 2022 Holiday Shopping Trends Report released by Adobe has been updated to include sales results of last week’s Black Friday.
According to the report, Xbox Series X was one of the five “hot products” of the crazy discount period. The other four are the children’s show Bluey, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare II, drones and Macbooks.
It is not clear what factors or data define a “hot product” for Adobe, but in any case, it remains a selection and significant recognition.
A similar fate for the mistreated Sonic Frontiers which always during Black Friday asserted itself (via VGC).
Sales of the game jumped 203% after multiple retailers dropped the price of the game to £30 (approximately €35) during the Black Friday. This move propelled him up the UK charts from tenth to seventh place.
Interesting results for both contenders, especially Sonic Frontiers which just in this period saw an important update arrive.
Same thing for Xbox Series X, which recently received its long-awaited November update that brought many new features on the software side.
