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

We're now enterting the final quarter of the year. Just a few weeks left until the holiday season begins. October isn't always left wanting, though, and this year we have trick-or-treat goodies like Forza Motorsport 7, Gran Turismo Sport, Wolfenstein: The New Colossus, South Park: The Fractured But Whole, and the highly-anticipated Super Mario Odyssey.

Note: Monthly & weekly rankings are usually updated daily on Amazon, typically 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.

Here's the monthly update to the yearly rankings:

Nintendo Switch (grey): #6 (—)
PS4 Slim Uncharted 4 bundle: #11 (↓2)
Nintendo Switch (neon): #19 (↑2)
SNES Classic Edition: #44 (new entry)
Xbox One X (Scorpio Edition): #65* (↓11)
PS4 Pro: #88 (↑1)


Good start for the SNES Classic. X1X preorders still in a strong position, too.

And looking at the initial monthly rankings... yep, regular PS4 bundles are not in stock at Amazon. The Pro is literally the only non-Nintendo hardware SKU in the top 100 right now.

Nice to see Switch in stock and high in the charts from the start of the month,  although it is still exclusive to prime members.

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).

This is going to be a huge month for Switch.

Help! so many amazing PS4-Games in the next months. We need more Life time. And the first 2018-quarter is incridible. At the PlayStation Experience event in december, release dates for further games will be announced, i think. (Detroit Become Human, Days Gone, God of War?)

In october, many people want Gran Turismo Sport (what do you think with the sales figures this year?) and the Survival-Horror-Game The Evil Within 2. TEW2 is 100 % better than the first Evil Within (Gameplay & Story), thats great :) the South Park-rpg is coming too yeah ; D
