Amazon U.S. July bestsellers and general Amazon-based discussion

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

Hello everyone. I took over the thread from Shadow as he has enough to do outside of visiting VGC and lost interest in managing this thread. I am very thankful for all the amazing work he did since he took over the thread from Teeqoz two years ago!

So now I'm hoping that I will be a worthy successor. I will still continue posting my updates as that thing is mostly automated.

Planned schedule is the hourly update every 6-12 hours, Monthly update every 5 days and Yearly update every sunday.

Other than that I want to change the structure of the thread a bit, mostly including the other countries more, but that will have to wait for another month or two as it takes time preparing.

Of course the amazon <-> Sony thing is still ongoing and I wonder if we will get an update on this in the coming weeks.

Now onto the month of July (although a few days late):

Hourly Rankings 


Monthly Rankings


Yearly Rankings



Note: Monthly & weekly rankings are usually updated daily on Amazon, typically sometime in the early to mid afternoon. Also, NPD's months, which use a "4-4-5" calendar, are not perfectly matched to Amazon's months, which go by the standard calendar. 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.

So the first post of the monthly is comparing itself to the last post of the previous month which causes a bit of chaos in the +/- changes. But the next update will be fine because I can compare it to the actual month. Also renamings are also causing issues in that department.

Octopath seems to be doing pretty good so far. And the 60$ PSN card is just unbeatable it seems.

Good luck Marth. Though I'd say with your work you're already doing very well as a successor to shadow.

Oh, and you're maybe a bit early with this thread, considering this week is still counted to June NPD.
