I really wonder how Amazon's hourly rankings work. The XB1X has been unavailable for about 22 hours now due to selling out, yet it's still #1 in the hourly rankings. How does that work? If my memory serves me right this also happened with other consoles and hardware devices, it confuses the fuck out of me.

It's apparently a running average, not a snapshot of actual relative sales in the past hour.

One X has already passed the Pro in the yearly ranking. Honestly didnt expect that to happen.

Oh wow! 



Pocky Lover Boy!

Yeah, this is very puzzling. I think the ranking isn't very accurate.



For anyone wondering what the "Nintendo Digital Download/ Game Trust" item is at no.1, it's the SNES mini. Amazon put preorders up for it at like 4 in the morning under that name. I preordered 2 :)

this month is all about who's 2nd.
