Video Game Consoles In Black Friday 2017
Taking a look at the Black Friday 2017 deals from Kohl's, JCPenney, and Costco, it appears that the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One will be trending this year.
The PlayStation 4 is still on top of the video game industry, with sales now up to about 67.5 million units worldwide. That number is expected to be at 79 million units by the end of Sony's current fiscal year on March 31, 2018.
Microsoft will be looking to close the gap with the upcoming release of the Xbox One X, a new challenge has arrived for the PlayStation 4 in the form of the Nintendo Switch. The hybrid console is too new to already be receiving massive discounts this year, but the Nintendo Switch will still be a chased item for the holiday shopping season.
