During the Thanksgiving holiday the Xbox360 sold 100,000 consoles a day. In Japan though they aren't doing so well, which is good for the consumers. Xbox360's are selling Blue Dragon packaged deals for 29,800 yen - approximately $259 in US dollars.

From the Betanews article:

Sources say the company sold as many as 100,000 consoles per day in the period surrounding Thanksgiving weekend. Numbers were on the high end of expectations, according to the data.

Additionally, Microsoft was helped out by weaker than expected sales of both the Wii and PS3 during the same period, indicating that shoppers looking for a next-gen console may have been opting for Microsoft's entrant over others due to availability.
