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.

Around the Network

Here's this month's update to the yearly rankings:

Nintendo Switch (grey): #6 (↑1)
PS4 Slim Uncharted 4 bundle: #8 (↑4)
Nintendo Switch (neon): #22 (↑10)
XBO S 500GB 3 game + Play & Charge bundle: #88 (new entry)
PS4 Pro: #94 (re-entry; first 2017 appearance)

 

The BF1 bundle drops out of the top 100, but is replaced by another XBO SKU, and the Pro finally shows up for the first time this year.

We're all one month closer to death.



Good to see that you're still continuing on with this!! I'd be very surprised if the PS4 didn't come out on top this month.

Number of days to reach 60M from 50M : 187 days
Number of days to reach 70M from 60M : 175 days

Nintendo could easily sold much more, but they prefer to let scalpers take the market.

It will be even worse with the snes mini, every person i know interested in the console bought 3 or 4 snes because of what happened with the nes mini.



KH starting August inside the top 40. Let's see if it can get back into the 20's.

As one can see I've decided to include all software pre-orders in the rankings. If people don't like it we can just go back to just games in the top 20 + games releasing in the current month.
