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

November is here. Turkey Day may be important for families, but for video games Black Friday is going to be just as important for sales. We're also seeing the launch of the PS4 Pro, the first major mid-gen spec upgrade to an existing home console platform in over 20 years. There's also going to be several major software titles, including Pokemon Sun & Moon, Final Fantasy XV, Dishonored 2, Watch Dogs 2, and of course a new Call of Duty game. Definitely going to be a big month.

Sorry for not having this up sooner. I passed out not too long before midnight because I was so dog-tired from work.

Anywho, here's the update to the yearly rankings, with rank changes since Oct. 1:

PS4 CoD bundle: #17 (↓3)
New 3DS XL: #71 (—)
XBO Gears bundle: #72 (↓5)
PS4 Pro: #85 (new entry)
XBO S 2TB: #93 (↓4)
PS4 standalone: #99 (re-entry)


The XBO 500GB Name Your Game bundle dropped out of the yearly top 100 after placing #95 at the start of October. Meanwhile, the PS4 Pro is the #4 best-selling console hardware SKU of the year on Amazon with less than two months worth of pre-orders.

Since we're heading into the holidays and the yearly rankings will start to change more rapidly than normal, from here on to the end of December I will update the yearly rankings every Thursday (and maybe a bonus update after Black Friday weekend).
