Indeed it does. The better part for Microsoft is that the bundle goes live tonight; a great headstart for them.

I'm looking at the monthly charts and the position the Halo bundle is in and I'm wondering if it also includes the preorders. Halo was no where to be seen until later in the month and yet it sits at #32 in charts, and it wasn't even winning until a few days ago. Even now it's only 3 places ahead of the TLOUR bundle. It just seems such a big jump considering how low it's been for most of this month and how many PS4 bundles have been ahead of it. We've all been speculating on how preorders would affect the final outcome but perhaps Amazon actually add those preorders in come the month of release.

Are you saying that the Halo 5 bundle's preorders from August and September are counted towards October? I don't really see anything that implies the case. Also, it's important to note that the rankings only tell you how one product sells relative to another, not at what what magnitude a product is selling.



#11 XB1 Halo Bundle*
#15 PS4 TLOUR Bundle*
#26 PS4 Nathan Drake Bundle*
#33 PS4 Star Wars Limeted Bundle
#57 PS4 Black Ops Bundle
#84 PS4 Destiny Bundle *
#91 PS4 Star Wars Bundle
#96 XB1 Forza Bundle *

*Affects this month

Halo nearly in Top 10

Pink Yarn Yoshi Amiibo is beast-ing at #11 !!


Nintendo be getting rich off of selling you DLCs and small over priced plastic figours....  easy money for them.

I wish they would just do more game developement instead.

 

Not a fan of the Amiibos, but given how succussfull they have been, and how high the profit margins must be on those tiny plastic toys they sell for a fortune,im guessing there here to stay.

Making amiibo doesn't come at the cost of game development you know... It's not like these developers all of a sudden decided to quit their game developer jobs and started making amiibo instead...

At least Nintendo isn't selling us season passes of $50.

No instead they've been selling DLC behind these figurines, selling them at $13 and releasing a hundred of them. Like, somehow that's any better.

They've been selling figurines? Oh boy, better get angry at every company that ever made figurines based on their franchises.

Tell me, what despicable thing have they unlocked behind amiibo?

Oh, here you go, a link that contains a list of all content locked behind amiibos.

I think every game contains content locked behind amiibos.

60 exclusive Splatoon missions. You mean the exact same missions but with a different weapon?

Lmao, you don't know what you're talking about.

It's mostly just costumes that wouldn't be in the games otherwise. Big deal.

Locked content is locked content, it's just a bunch of DLC locked behind it. Downplay it all you want, not surprised you're downplaying it anyways.

Lol, you better not buy Uncharted 4 then.

People buy it for the figurines, believe it or not. Downplay that however much you want.
