Forums - Sales Discussion - Amazon U.S. September 2019 bestsellers and general Amazon-based discussion

After 2 months in the top of the chart, Fire Emblem is finally slipping down in the middle, great initial run for Tree Houses though :D

Astral Chain maintains it's grip in the Top 10 while Link's Awakening might probably be the leader until it's launch in 2 weeks !

Link is leading the games, sadly followed by a basketball-themed real money casino for little kids

The saddest part is, that it works for the publishers. Just look at the movers and shakers on Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/gp/movers-and-shakers/videogames/ref=zg_bs_tab_t_bsms Top 4 are all virtual currency for that "game"

Gears 5 sales are kinda weak, i think. It's behind astral chain and priced at under $50, perhaps digital sales are going to be stronger.
I'm interested in seeing Gears 5 NPD numbers to see the impact of gamepass.

It is being advertised as a GamePass game, neither Xbox nor PC. That is the bigger Platform for Microsoft these days. Next year customers will be able to play these games on any device using Xcloud. 

You don't need to push hard to convince people to spend $10, or even $2 for new customers, to play the game instead of $60

Amazon August 2019 thread

Ugh! Now that Amazon bundled the cards for the consoles together, the flood of virtual money packs for NBA 2K20 are getting even more apparent. Seriously, who buys this crap???



Around the Network

I've just seen Daemon X Machina at the 86th spot in the hourly rankings, does anybody know if it was already down there in the past few days or if it just showed up ? It seems to be performing way worse than Astral Chain, maybe more people will go digital on this one ?

It's slowly rising. For instance, at the time of writing this, it's already on the 74th spot.

And yes, it's not doing too hot. Probably a casualty of having too many games in a short timeframe incoming: Astral Chain, Daemon X Machina, Link's Awakening, Dragon Quest XI S, Ni no Kuni... September was already Jam-packed with great games before the Direct dropped another ton onto the month. Being a more niche  type of game, it's getting squashed between the better-known titles of the month's releases.

On the other hand, the demo might have pushed people to buy the game in the eShop instead, but I still think it might struggle to reach the million

Yesterday I found out the game is 5 pounds cheaper than other full price titles on the UK e-shop but it doesn't seem to be the case elsewhere, while AC definitely seems to have more traction in Europe compared to Japan and the US I think DxM will have a bigger splash in Japan and US, maybe this territory division will help push the sales forward, I have a hard time believing an exclusive published from Nintendo will flop unless the reviews are really bad



Honestly, though if Daemon x Machina manage to perform as well as your usual Armored Core games (around 500K-600k), then it'll be fine.
