Microsoft: Black Friday Gives Xbox "Biggest Sales Week" Of Year

Get ready to for some corporate gloating, Microsoft-style, in the coming days. According to the company's Director of Product Management for Xbox 360 and Xbox Live, the Xbox 360 just had its "biggest sales week of the year."

Greenberg didn't put a specific figure to the console's sales from the Thanksgiving/Black Friday week as Nintendo did earlier today. But the increasingly svelte Xbox 360 spokesman did write that last week's numbers were "more than [two times the] previous week sales."

We'll see if Microsoft can top 2008, when the Xbox 360 maker claimed it outsold its PlayStation 3 competition three-to-one.
