7 hours since last update:

#12 PS4 Black Ops 3 Standard Bundle (same)
#31 PS4 Star Wars Standard Bundle (down 6)
#36 XB1 Gears Bundle (down 6)
#48 N3DS Black (same)

PS4 - 4 bundles, 2 in the top 100
XB1 - 8 bundles, 1 in the top 100

The Xbox One has so many bundles.   This is why I believe that we will never see a vinilla Xbox One again.

Actually, the gap shrank to about 550k after last holiday season. The XBO won by ~400k last November and ~200K last December.


Whoops. I must have punched in a wrong number somewhere on my calculator. I redid the calculations and the LTD gap as of the end of 2014 was indeed much lower than 750k. More like 520-530k. The gap as of October 2014 was still about 1150k.

So when is the cut off date for Dec's NPD?

The reason Halo didn't sell console's is because there wasn't a standard bundle. Sorry, but I wouldn't pay 500$ for an XB1 either. On top of the fact they lost COD, and Sony had star wars, it was obvious as to why Microsoft was going to lose.

When Halo 3 was released they had a limited edition Halo-themed 360 released alongside it. Not a bundle. Just the system; the game was sold separately. Halo 3 still pushed more hardware than Halo 5 did, in both absolute and relative terms.

I think Sunday is the last day.

Nice, should be a great month for sales.

Also, star wars killed it.

Great month. I'm glad it's over. I survived another year. Fuck the holidays man. Haha.


 

The PS5 Exists. 


I'll be putting up the January thread shortly. I just need to coordinate things with Teeqoz.

I will still be updating this thread as we will still be getting updated December rankings at least until Monday and Week 5 numbers until Wednesday.

Oh wow.   How did this happen.  Does this mean that the PS4 won all 5 weeks on Amazon?
