July 5th was the last day for June NPD.

Sure it's not today? Would be weird stopping on a Thursday.

Oh okey. I am still not that familiar with all the NPD stuff. Need to look that up soon. Although amazons prediction power regarding NPD is not that high anymore.

Also it still irritates me a bit every time i read "NPD" because its the shorthand symbol for the right wing extremist party in Germany. :D

Yeah, as a Luxembourger, I know very well what you mean. Just hope they don't get a branch with an AFD acronym ;)

So, has anybody figured out what is going on between Sony and Amazon? It seems they are out of stock for a lot of their stuff, especially the consoles. Some are speculating its Amazon demanding an extra cut of the profit. If true, that's BS. Obviously it's hurting Amazon more than Sony, as they still keep winning NPDs.

I mean, it's not hurting Amazon that much.  They make a cut off third party sellers and gaming is ultimately a pretty small part of their business.  And wuth Switch doing great and Xbone doing better than before, Sony is no longer they only source of reliable console sales revenue for retailers.  

The assumption comes from Amazon's history.  They have bullied numerous companies before, most notably Nintendo when they refused to sell Nintendo hardware until Nintendo sweetened the deal for them.  Not sure they ever got what they wanted.  And this is a very similar pattern.

As for non-PS4 stock issues, my guess is Amazon's market share has grown but Amazon is not interested in the games business enough to necessarily up their supply lines at the same pace.  They've demonstrated many times that they are a company highly resistant to increasing overhead in even the simplist ways.

Well, I don't mean hurting them like they are in trouble, just Amazon will feel it more than Sony will. Especially once the PS4 gets a price drop and sales explode.

Yea, I think that's BS. I'm sure Sony and Nintendo were going to give them the same cut other retailers get. I like Amazon, so it's definitely disappointing to see them use these bully tactics. 



KH3 Deluxe is at 94. Must appreciate this time.
