Out of the top 10 games that Matt from NPD predicts will lead the year, you can only pre-order two in physical form from amazon...

Call of Duty Black Ops 4
Fallout 76

The rest only have higher edition digital codes or the game is not listed at all.

Don't forget some of the games are already out, and both Far Cry 5 and Monster Hunter World can be bought on the site normally. God of War however, not so much.

I highly doubt however that MHW will stay in the Top 10 until the end. It's at 1.1M in retail according to this site when combining PS4 and XBO and it's legs are pretty much dead already. At the current rate both MK8DX and SMO almost could beat that already until the end of the year, sitting at over 500k already, not to mention games like Super Mario Party, Smash or either version of Pokémon let's go.

Man, this gif gets me laughing. Amazing to be at #2 tbh. Never expected to do THIS great. How was it compared to the WiiU game?

I read this on resetera. So many problems with people selling on amazon it would really make you question it as a reliable tracker.

"They still are. You can't preorder physical copies of Disney, Marvel, Pixar, or Star Wars titles. They aren't available to order until the day of release, although sometimes quantities are extremely low (going out of stock for an obnoxiously long time) and only available to Prime subscribers.

It's a similar story with EA. You can preorder digital copies of their games, but you can't preorder anything physical, and even physical copies of already released games are mostly (entirely?) available only from third-party sellers rather than Amazon directly."

And obviously you can add Sony to the list. Anyway I'm glad these companies are standing up to the draconian amazon policies. Hopefully Nintendo and Microsoft follow suit. Otherwise they'll keep giving everyone super slim and shitty margins on their products sold via amazon.

MAU...ST impressive Sony!

It has been out of stock for Canada for couple of days. Thankfully I got mine. Nice to see it doing well on amazon around the world. 



 

Could it ... make the 1st million in it's first week actually ? We'll see after the reviews !

Switch Friend Code : 3905-6122-2909 

Meanwhile in Smash Bros ...

The yearly chart is in upheaval, too. God of War finally starts dropping, the PS cards are weakening at the top, while Smash, Octopath, Toad and Mario Party rush through the ranks.

I'll wait for my update of the yearly chart until tomorrow, so we'll have the position of Octopath at release day. But things are moving on all fronts there now.
