I was in two minds whether I should include it. It's $50 more than the Black Ops 3 Bundle and it's been on sale for ages now so I can't seen it suddenly breaking into the top 100 EVEN a week before release. Sony can't decide to include another game as an incentive because that would mean updating every single pre-order so far. Perhaps an UC4 Bundle with the vanilla PS4 will appear at some point but as of right now, I do not see it shooting up the charts. The press previews appear next week (could be the weekend, I'm not sure) and that will definitely help lift the game, and perhaps the bundle (a little).

399.99$, so that might be part of it. x3 The extra fifty bucks does just seem to be for the shiny exterior- it's still a 500GB PS4- as well as Uncharted 4 being a newer game, so it might not be enough to make the public bite. We'll have to see as we draw closer to release, though. I also seem to remember the Nathan Drake Collection Bundle was quite the popular one back in October and November, so we might already have seen a lot of particularly enthusiastic Uncharted fans get on board during the last quarter of 2015. xP

When was the Uncharted bundle made available on Amazon, anyway? Anyone know?

Yes, that will definitely hae played into it to some degree.

Like with XB1 being slowed down because of exclusives releasing for PC simultaneously and because of the rumoured upgraded XB1 (slim), I think this could be the case with PS4 as well. It's dangerous to leak details about PS4.5 so far in advance (Sony would've debunked the rumour if it wasn't true and I think PS4.5 will come this September/October).

You could argue that only people that follow gaming news closely know about this "rumour" but it seems to be spreading on social and mainstream media. Some of my friends know about it even though they don't visit dedicated gaming sites. E3 will uncover a lot of things but I think these "rumours" may harm sales of the Uncharted 4 bundle to some extent.

Also it really should've been 1TB instead of 500GB.

I agree that this rumour spreading to social media is bad for business but that UC4 bundle isn't going to be affected IMO. It has run its course naturally and only a price drop would wake it from its slumber.

Maybe you're right. I hope at least.

Btw you and Shadow are doing an awesome job with these Amazon threads. Thanks :)
