Happy New Year! 2017 is going to be a big year for gaming, and though January itself is not a major month for new releases, the big Switch event on the 13th could shake up the charts. Resident Evil 7 and some other more niche titles will drop this month as well.

Note: Monthly & weekly rankings are on a 3-day one-day delay from the current calendar date. They are usually updated daily on Amazon between 4 to 5 PM sometime in the morning Eastern time. Also, NPD's months are not perfectly matched to Amazon's months. Some items in these rankings may be marked with a typographical symbol:

*Indicates item available for pre-order for release in a later month. Does not count towards current month's sales.
†Indicates used/pre-owned hardware. Does not count towards current month's sales.

First tag of 2017.

Made a bet with LipeJJ and HylianYoshi that the XB1 will reach 30 million before Wii U reaches 15 million. Loser has to get avatar picked by winner for 6 months (or if I lose, either 6 months avatar control for both Lipe and Hylian, or my patrick avatar comes back forever).

2017 should be fun. Switch reveal and launch, PS4 software line up-marketing deals and bundles, Scorpio launch.



Formerly ilovegirls69  :(

Here we go, this will be the first month we get to see the Switch's early sales prospects in the form of preorders and if Mario is announced at the Switch event, the impact of Mario Run on the IP. Hopefully.

Won bet with t3mporary_126 - I correctly predicted that the Wii U's LTD at the end of 2014 would be closer to 9 million than 10 million. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=6673287

It looks like MS cut the Xbox One S price by $20, I wonder if Sony will do the same.
