MICROSOFT 750,000 Xbox 360 video-game consoles during the week of Black Friday, according to its internal statistics.
This number beat the company’s own expectations on the week that includes the US’s traditional shopping spree day (after Thanksgiving), but it didn’t indicate by how much.
Not bad for a console that debuted seven years ago.
Meanwhile, there was good news for Google as it put its Nexus 4 Android out for sale again in the US. Shoppers who went to the Google Play store briefly saw an 8 GB model going for $299, shipping in 4-5 weeks.
In less than half an hour, it was sold out again.
LG makes the Nexus 4 for Google, which chooses manufacturing partners to make Nexus-branded Android phones and tablets.
