Reports are coming in regarding the most popular items purchased during Black Friday 2019, and a certain video game console was among the most in-demand products. Wedbush Securities analysts from the Los Angeles-based financial services and investment firm reported the Nintendo Switch was a top seller during this year’s sales. [Thanks, CNN!]

During Black Friday, there was no official drastic discount on the Nintendo Switch from Nintendo. Instead, the company offered the $299.99 Mario Kart 8 Deluxe bundle. This gave people a system, Neon Blue and Red Joy-Cons, and a digital copy of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe. It was identical to the Black Friday 2018 bundle. (The Cyber Monday 2019 offer involved a Nintendo Switch and a 128GB microSD card.)

The most popular Black Friday 2019 game was also revealed by Wedbush. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare ended up being the most popular. While it is normally $59.99, people were able to get it for $38 from GameStop and Walmart and for $39.99 from Best Buy and Meijer.

In other recent Nintendo Switch sales news, Pokemon Sword and Shield set a record for the system in November 2019. In one week, it sold six million units worldwide. It is now among the top ten highest selling games for the system.
