Prince William

If you think your girlfriend taking the TV while you’re trying to play Madden is a great hardship, you may soon have a royal sympathizer

Duke of Cambridge Prince William was visiting London promoting the Give Something Back campaign when he commented on the next-gen race.

“It’s very addictive,” he said, speaking  about Sony’s PlayStation 4. “I’d like to get one but I’m not sure how my wife would feel about it.”

The PlayStation 4 has already hit shelves to a slew of optimistic reviews, but the Xbox One is set to release November 22nd, so it’s too early to call a winner. Still, a royal endorsement is nothing to scoff at. One can only wonder if Microsoft will bundle their system with a Horse Polo 2k14 or High-heel Volleyball 2014 to try to win the Duke and Duchess on their side.



Xbox One Most Commonly Purchased on Black Friday

A survey from Infoscout shows that Microsoft's Xbox One was the most popular console from retailers Target and Walmart on Black Friday.

Xbox One accounted for 31 percent of consoles purchased, while the PlayStation 4 made up approximately 15 percent. The Xbox 360 ranked second with 30 percent, while the PlayStation 3 accounted for another 15 percent. The Wii U came in fifth with six percent, while the Wii made up a mere one percent of purchases.

The survey does not include the number of consoles purchased, or how many customers were surveyed. The success of both Xbox consoles can be "largely attributed" to limited availability of the PS4, Infoscout said. Discounts on the Xbox 360 at Walmart also likely helped boost numbers.
