Black Friday 2015

InfoScout is at it again with Black Friday 2015 sales. Based on data collected from the research firm, Wii U took home 17 percent of the console share during the big shopping day.

We also posted a breakdown of the top 20 best-selling games during Black Friday yesterday. If you missed it, check it out here.


A marketing study by researcher InfoScout ranks the best-selling games on Black Friday. Purchases were tracked from a network of 300,000 users over three mobile apps. The graphic above is based on 250,000 receipts from those users on Thanksgiving night and Black Friday.

It’s also worth mentioning that in terms of hardware, Nintendo had 19 percent share on Black Friday, compared to 20 percent on an average day among millennials. Nintendo’s share was at 30 percent among the middle-aged group in contrast to 34 percent on an average day.


We’ve already heard about some of Nintendo’s Black Friday 2015 offers and deals, including the new Wii U bundle. This will feature pre-installed copies of Splatoon and Super Smash Bros. for Wii U. It’ll be sold for $280, but some retailers will be offering it for $250.

Nintendo is also teasing its own set of deals on the eShop. Plenty of discounts are planned “on dozens of the best-reviewed games.”

Head past the break for today’s full announcement about Nintendo’s Black Friday deals.

This year’s Black Friday 2015 deals at Toys “R” Us have leaked early, just as expected. You can get a look at the gaming sales below.

Toys “R” Us’ deals aren’t quite as good as the competition. Still, there are notable deals like $20 off Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze, Mario Party 10, and the new Peanuts game.


Walmart has announced its deals for Black Friday 2015. A few Nintendo games will be going on sale, including Splatoon, Zelda: Majora’s Mask 3D, and Super Smash Bros. for 3DS, each of which will be $25. The new Super Smash Bros. and Splatoon Wii U bundle will also be sold for $250.

Best Buy has made its Black Friday 2015 deals known. There aren’t a whole lot of Nintendo sales to point out, but there are a few notable things.

One of the more notable discounts is for Splatoon, which will cost just $34.99. Given how Nintendo games tend to keep their value, that isn’t a bad price. Other highlights include $20 off New 3DS XL systems, a $30 Guitar Hero Live discount, and Disney Infinity 3.0 for $40.
