Merry Christmas, Happy New Year, and a Happy Holidays to everyone in general. Time for the last thread of the year. And thanks to everyone for making last month's thread the most active Amazon thread to date.
Note: Monthly & weekly rankings are usually updated daily on Amazon, typically sometime in the early to mid afternoon. Also, NPD's months are not perfectly matched to Amazon's months. 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.
