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

It's been quite a while since I commented in one of these threads. So it seems that there is still a conflict between Amazon and Sony? I wonder what is it that they have major disagreements on because this has been going on for a while.

This will seem an odd question, but does Sony get the same amount of money from say Best buy or Gamestop as Amazon when I buy a game from them?

If I buy Spiderman from Gamestop instead of Amazon - isn't the only loser there Amazon? Gamestop gets their cut. Sony gets their cut. Amazon gets nothing.

All Sony needs to do is throw a little bit of advertising behind Best buy or Gamestop and Amazon will be left to lose out.

That is our thoughtprocess so far. This move by amazon seems pretty stupid but they do it anyway.

Honest question:

Why are you assuming it's on Amazon? It could be Sony wanting better deals from Amazon and Amazon would have none of it. The obvious conflict is there, but has there been similar scenarios before between Nintendo/Sony/Microsoft and Amazon? I cant remember one. Sony loses more on this Amazon does so it would be to their gain to make this work again.

With that said, Amazon is a horrible company and I wish them nothing good so I hope it's on them and not Sony.

There it finally is! Switch is falling down a cliff, guys!

On a more serious note, Octopath traveler is doing really well, beating Ridley Amiibo for the first spot

ps4 will beat switch by around 100k March npd or slightly less.

Amazon yearly charts update (2 days since last update):

SSBU: 17 (+2)
Octopath Traveler: 33 (+7)
Super Mario Party: 67 (+4)
Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker: 62 (+17)
Pokémon Let's Go Pikachu: 83 (+1)
Dark Souls Remastered (Switch Version): 86 (-1)

Still no Fallout 76 or Kingdom Hearts ranking.

Toad had an extremly strong finish over the last 2 days and jumped up by 17 spots, while Octopath overtook Splatoon 2, Labo and Bayonetta over the last days and is now just behind Mario Tennis Aces, Kirby and DK:TF.

Octopath and Captain Toad released today. I will keep tracking them for a couple more days to see how their sales evolve.

This is a valid point you make.

We dont know for sure because no official information has been given on the matter.

But we assume its from amazon because they have done something like this before with Nintendo.
amazon had a lot of unsold 3DS and wanted to sell them at a discount. Nintendo said no and then amazon went through their 3DS inventory and looked for every tiny error and fault they could find and sent those back to Nintendo. They then stopped stocking amazon for a while and this even extended to the WiiU.

Difference here is that Nintendo was way more reliant on amazon for selling some WiiUs than Sony is for the PS4. PS4 is still selling great despite amazon only selling via 3rd party. Its a strange case of both parties not caring that much. There are more important retailers for Sony and amazon is still making money with 3rd party sales and their gaming division is just a small part of their business.
