Welcome to the Amazon thread for August!

Its summer so a slow month is ahead of us.
There are a few games releasing. While those will stir up the chart a bit I don't expect it to have a longlasting effect. Maybe Nintendo gives us a Direct with new announcements but so far nothing is known.
I think most notably is Madden NFL19 for PS4 and XONE.

Yearly Rankings

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

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.

Amazon August 2019 thread

I'm curious how high the limited Spiderman-console will be in the worldwide charts in August. I think it will sell out fast. Especially in the France, Germany and UK Amazon-charts. Too bad that AmazonUSA no longer sells new PS4 consoles/some sony-exclusives (this note is missing here again). Let's see how small/big the interest in the Shenmue-Collection will be in August. I personally want Yakuza Kiwami 2 this month, but I'm so ready for Spiderman & the new Dragon Quest XI on PS4 in the next time. i hope the best for great games with big effort / love to details - pre-orders / Amazon-charts are interesting to look at.

Isn't August NPD Weeks 32-35? Otherwise July would only cover 3 weeks.

You are completely right. I made a mistake and had Week 27 in July which belongs to June. Will fix that.
