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.

Monthly Rankings

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.

PSN cards are pretty much back.

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.

"The Last of Us 2" is officially the Game with the most Game of the Year Awards in video game history worldwide, voted by millions Players and Magazines. My Gratulation :) My personally Dream-Game is "Ghost of Tsushima".

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.

The classic versions are doing very well. Call of Duty takes the top spot

Persona 5 #31 on list.... that does me good to see.
