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

April is here. It's the start of the slow spring season. No really high-profile releases this month, but there's still a few games to be had, and there must still be a winner.

Note: Monthly & weekly rankings are on a one-day delay from the current calendar date. They are usually updated daily on Amazon, usually sometime in the early to mid afternoon. 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 NPD numbers.
† Indicates item currently being sold primarily or exclusively through third-party sellers due to limited stock. Most or all sales don't count towards NPD numbers.
‡ Indicates used/pre-owned hardware. Does not count towards NPD numbers.

Sorry for not having the thread up yesterday. I was really busy doing some running around in preparation to my trip to go see Wrestlemania today. I don't really have a lot of time right now, but here's the update to the yearly rankings, with rank changes since March 1:

Nintendo Switch (grey): #6 (↑1)
PS4 Slim Uncharted 4 bundle: #12 (—)
NES Classic Edition: #19 (↓6)
Nintendo Switch (neon): #57 (new entry)
XBO S 500GB Battlefield 1 bundle: #66 (↓14)


The current monthly rankings are in the OP. I'll finalize the March thread tomorrow because I have to start getting ready now and I won't be home until tomorrow morning.

Does Mario Kart 8 Deluxe not count as a high profile release? I'm very excited to see how high it goes before launch at the end of this month.

~~~~ Mario Kart 8 drove far past my expectations! Never again will I doubt the wheels of a Monster Franchise! :0 ~~~~

0 Xbox games in top20.
first (highest ranked) xbox one game is Destiny 2 at #43!!!!!

That is crazy! Playstation has so many games selling well and then for xbox... where the games sales?



Predictions (from jan 2017):

This year PS4slims hit 199$ during the holidays.

This year PS4 sales go over 18,5m.

I'm curious why are people buying "regular" PS5 on the ps4 instead of the steelbook edition?

Both are in the top 20. Yet I can't see a regular to go with the "regular" edition.
Is it those stickers that decorate your controller? Is that only in the "regular" version not the steelbook version?

MK8D is going to be huge. I expect it to be the top selling Switch game of the year.
