Black Friday had come and gone with Cyber Monday completed as well. So after all the hectic craziness of shopping for great deals over the Thanksgiving weekend, Microsoft once again defeated Sony in console sales online.


According to Adobe's annual market-tracking data for the United States, the Xbox One was recorded as the fifth best-selling electronics brand online during the Black Friday event. As all other items and products ahead of the Xbox One where not gaming consoles, it meant that Microsoft once again took the number one spot for sales over Sony's PlayStation 4.


For now it seems that Microsoft have the upper hand when it comes to sales, though for how ever long they maintain this position is yet to be seen.
