Forums - Sales Discussion - Amazon U.S. August bestsellers and general Amazon-based discussion

As we head into the middle of summer, we also head into uncharted territories with the Amazon threads. In the past year-plus since I first started helping with these threads, we would occasionally have hiccups where the monthly and/or weekly rankings have been messed up. Sometimes they'd be delayed, sometimes they'd show on time but then disappear only to reappear again after a little while, but generally these issues resolved themselves in maybe 3-4 days tops. But currently Amazon's monthly and weekly rankings have not been updated since July 4. It appears to be a site-wide thing with all rankings. It is unknown if this is a permanent situation and Amazon has simply discontinued keeping lists of monthly & weekly bestsellers, or they simply had some technical issue and simply haven't gotten around to fixing it yet. But until further notice, the monthly and weekly rankings will remain in absentia. The hourly rankings are still updated, and Gribble and the others have done a good job keeping track of them. Hopefully the issues with the monthly & weekly rankings are resolves soon and I can begin to update them here in the threads. I will let everyone know if and when that time comes.

Everything is back up and running normally at Amazon! Yay!

Now, on with the thread.

Monthly Rankings

Yearly Rankings

Note: Monthly & weekly rankings are on a 3-day delay from the current calendar date. They are usually updated daily on Amazon between 4 to 5 PM Eastern time. Also, NPD's months are not perfectly matched to Amazon's months.

The yearly rankings are apparently still being updated as well. Here's the change from how they stood on the July 1 update:

PS4 CoD bundle: #15 ()
XBO Gears bundle: #54 (↓1)
New 3DS XL: #85 (↓2)
XBO 1TB Holiday bundle: #100 (re-entry)

Since the Holiday bundle is an older one, I'm listing it as a "re-entry" even though as far as I know it hasn't entered the yearly top 100 for 2016 until now.
