Here's this month's update to the yearly rankings, with the ranking change from August 1:

PS4 CoD bundle: #15 ()
XBO Gears bundle: #62 (↓8)
New 3DS XL: #65 (↑20)
XBO 500GB Name Your Game bundle: #90 (new entry)
XBO 1TB 3-game Holiday bundle: #94 (↑6)
XBO S 2TB: #96 (new entry)

Big jump for the New 3DS XL, the XBO Gears bundle tumbles, but an older XBO SKU makes an appearance and the XBO S quickly asserts itself after just a few weeks of availability.

Exciting month!! :D

PC | 32GB @ 3000mhz | AMD Ryzen 1700 | MSI 1080Ti GTX | LG 27UD58P | ICND I+II & CCNP Switch/Route certified |

Consoles | PS4 | 3DS |
Scorpio is pre ordered, joining the Xbox Family '17

Old Consoles PSVita | Wii-U |Wii | PS3 | DS | PSP | PS2 | Xbox | Gamecube | Dreamcast | PS1 | GBA | SNES | Gameboy | NES

This month will get very interesting in a little less than a week, I think.  I wonder what type of bundles the ps4 slim is going to have.



Xbox one S beasting the Amazon charts lately. PS4 all the way down to 51! Seems like a price cut is in order as the S is now selling consistently better than ps4 since its launch last month.

One Piece is the greatest thing to happen to mankind. 

It will be interesting month :)

Here's the third-to-last update for August's monthly rankings:

XBO S 2TB: #23 ()
PS4 CoD bundle: #24 ()
New 3DS XL (black): #35 (↓1)
XBO S 500GB Halo bundle: #42 (↑1)
PS4 standalone: #58 ()
New 3DS XL (red): #82 (↓5)
XBO S 1TB Madden bundle: #86 (↓2)

Well, the Vita's re-entry into the monthly charts was short-lived. Everything else was fairly stable in today's update. Only two updates left for August. The initial September monthly rankings should be up on Sunday.


Now for the initial rankings for Week 1 of September:

PS4 CoD bundle: #31
XBO S 500GB Halo bundle: #34
New 3DS XL Galaxy edition: #39
PSTV: #41
XBO S 2TB: #63
PS Vita: #79
PS4 standalone: #82
PS4 UC4 LE bundle: #83
XBO S 1TB Madden bundle: #97

Impressive start for the N3DS XL Galaxy edition. Since it was released this week it will count towards September NPD period sales. I wonder how big September will be for the 3DS.
