It's hard to tell if NDC is up there cause it's still selling well or because it broke records last week and is taking ages to slide down the chart

Latter seems more likely. NDC at 350 wasn't very high..why would it be now, and above the SW bundle..

Chart is basically in post orgasmic chill.

Why would it be now?  Because we're in the Christmas season.  



It is looking like ps4 might win the holidays in the US after all even after xb1 having "the best games lineup in xbox history". To be honest, I was expecting a clear win for xbox one.

I wouldn't be surprised to see Sony take Dec mush easier than it's taken Nov.



 

The PS5 Exists.

The best line-up in XBOX story PR already moved to 2016.

No sweat.



Ps4 has also been both #1 AND #2 at GameStop for about 5 days as well. Tho the #2 says it only releases 12/4...? They appear to be the same bundle.

Also, the yearly list was updated.
22 ps4 NDC--up 6
35 Ps4 standalone--down 4
50 XBO AC--same
62 XBO gears--up 10
77 Wii u--down 3

GONE--Ps4 batman

Surprised the AC bundle isn't moving down like the ps4 standalone

Why would i not believe you? You don't stand to gain anything by lying. i dont stand to gain anything by accussing you of lying.

I dont remember ever asking you this b4? is my memory that bad? sure it was me?

I just saw the ps plus 50% and got alittle to excited, should of clicked that you have to purchase the ps4 along with it

Also it threw me off because all of the other deals are in the "bundle+ the extras + the price" format

Yeah, sorry, I was having a 'senior' moment.

Get out of my pool ya whipper-snapper!

I see the Gears bundle is listed for $327 from 3rd parties "fulfillment by Amazon". There are a particularly large number of 3rd parties "fulfillment by Amazon" selling for between $327 and $335. Are these people who bought a whole bunch of Gears bundles for $299 during BF and then immediately re-listed them for sale to make a quick $25-$30 profit? If you add in the number of 3rd parties selling this bundle below $249 it's 7 1/2 pages of 3rd party sellers or about 75 (re?)sellers.

I don't want to go all flamey with suggesting a large number of Xb one's were sold to re-sellers on BF. But if you compare 75 (re?)sellers "fulfullment by Amazon" with prices up to $22 cheaper than the current MSRP, to cheapest NDC 3rd party sellers are $343, only 6 of them and none are "fulfullment by Amazon". There's something curious going on here.

For all consoles that have a very short term price cut I guess you're going to get people who buy low and then re-sell with a modest margin. But the difference with the PS4 and Xb one listings is quite notable. But maybe that's because NDC and SWBF are going to be back at $299 in a couple of days, so the re-sellers of PS4 are perhaps biding their time for now?

Why is Wii U more or less back to full price? Is that just Amazon or is it everywhere. Has Nintendo not increased production to meet a sustained increase in demand? That would be really unfortunate for Nintendo if they knew the demand was there but it is unable to supply it. Another mis-step by them in a generation that has been full of mis-steps?
