The Amazon charts have been making it look like the Xbox One is just slaughtering the PS4 in the US, but then when numbers come out, the difference isn't that big. Like latest numbers it was only ahead by 70k when PS4 has largely only had their vanilla SKU available on Amazon?

I think people probably put a little too much stock in Amazon's charts.

This time of year VGC estimates are the least reliable so other then using for general understanding of the market you cant compare them.  November VGC estimates were off as well so all of a sudden thinking that the first month of December are spot on are silly.

XBO still doing great, looks like it's going to be another XBO win in the USA.

I do find it strange that they seem to be fighting price in UK/content much more aggressively in the UK... is it something like the exchange rate that might be causing that (i.e the price is higher in the UK so they have more scope to fight it)?

Read the thread title, December Best Sellers :P

read his cry victim comment, and get over what thread it is.  


Lol irony.

But he's right about this being December Amazon Bestsellers thread. People only want to comment in this thread when PS4 is ahead in the hourly charts. Which only happened for like a day.

People comment when there are interesting things happening. Like when the XBO first got a big boost on Amazon and we had a a 500+ post thread about it. Plenty of people commented there. If there are no major changes then what is there to say? XBO is ahead of PS4. Cool, been that way for a month and a half. 



Exactly. There's more comments when there's alot of activity in the charts. Whether from PS4 or XB1. There's no need to attach an agenda to every little thing. Relax with the confirmation bias. These are just plastic boxes.

The PS4 Destiny bundle is currently back ordered from Amazon. Its only available from 3rd parties at a higher price thorugh the Amazon website.


So buy it from one of the other million places that DO have it.  Bestbuy.com has loads as I'm sure tons of other sites do.



You miss the point! Its at #82 because its not in stock at its normal price. And 3 days later and its still not in stock from Amazon directly. So the ranking is not a good representation of how it is selling over all, since it can be bought cheaper else ware.
