Here's today's update to the monthly ranks:

PS4 Star Wars basic bundle: #3 (↓1)
XBO Gears bundle: either #14 (—)
PS4 NDC (disc) bundle: #39 (↓2)
New 3DS XL (black): #42 (—)
XBO 1TB 3-game bundle: #51 (—)
Wii U MK8 bundle: #55 (—)


And here's the update to the Week 4 rankings:

PS4 COD bundle (standard): #14 (↑1)
XBO Gears bundle: #17 (↑1)
PS4 Star Wars bundle: #49 (↑2)
XBO 3-game Holiday bundle: #54 (↓17)
New 3DS XL (Black): #58 (↑1)
XBO Fallout 4 bundle: #88 (↓1)
Wii U MK8 bundle: #94 (↓12)

Well, seeing as this is where everything stood as of Christmas day we shouldn't see much more movement in the monthlies. The only thing I don't get is where the hell the COD bundle is in the monthlies.

Down to third =~[ we could have had PS4 at first if not for supply issues.

COD bundle will take a while to get into the monthly
As I already said week 1 and 3 were the biggest. That's why being #1 sku in week 4 isn't yet enough to chart. Week 4 isn't that big, a lot of its days are slow/dead, specially on online stores. The real Xmas craze happens on the weekend before, not Xmas week itself.
And once again the importance of not relying too much on the hourlies.. COD was barely ever ahead of Gears yet the weekly shows it has sold quite a bit more than it on that week. That is because the bundle did not exist before and had no ranking, while the Gears one had been hovering around the top 20 for many days. Honestly they shouldn't even be called hourlies..it's an inaccurate name. I'm not sure what I'd call them though. Well their description isn't really a lie. What happens hourly is the rate of updates. But they are not updates on hourly sales



Remember NPD this month is 5 weeks.

And we are sure it is updated every hour?
