WalMart saw sales increase over 400% week on week due to one day of $100 Gift Card promotion

Walmart announced last week that they would be bundling $100 gift cards with the Xbox 360 Arcade for $199 on November 7th in one of a number of pre-Black Friday sales over the coming weeks. Preliminary VGChartz estimates place total sales across all Walmart stores for the week at around 90,000 units (the majority coming from the 7th November) - over 5 times the sales at Walmart for the previous week. Total sales across the Americas should come in at around 170,000 this week - up 90% on last week and around 70% more than PS3.

With the latest news that the promotion is expected to continue through to the 15th November, we expect that sales will be higher still next week, especially with the launch of Modern Warfare 2 tomorrow.

Stay tuned to VGChartz for all the finalised data later this week.
