Tax season is upon us, which means we're looking at a strong month for hardware sales. This is also a big month for remakes and re-releases, with Shadow of the Colossus and Secret of Mana releasing for the PS4, and Bayonetta 1 & 2 coming out for the Switch.

Yearly Rankings


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.

Think this month is going to be particularly strong, not just becuase of tax returns but also changes to the tax code. I know personally I'm seeing an additional $100 per paycheck from the Trump tax cut. Going to be a windfall for many households.
