Forums - Sales Discussion - Amazon U.S. November bestsellers and general Amazon-based discussion

It is incredible that the Xbox One sold the most only in the 6 year and outsold the PS3 by 600k+ in 1 month.

I think that the PS4 will be able to surpass Xbox 360's sales but it will be hard to surpass Wii's sales.

Well, it is worth pointing out that, at least for PlayStation & Xbox, November has been growing as a sales month in both absolute and relative terms. I made a thread about this a couple of months ago. The PS4 may or may not have a record-setting November (it will for PS systems only, but maybe not for all consoles), but December will favor older systems in a Top 15 December performances chart. I haven't made such a chart yet, though.

Hmm, Abdiel on Neogaf said that October went pretty to the Xbox even at Best Buy, so what is going on with Amazon? I'll wait to see the NPD numbers, but I'm expecting the One to be the best-selling console again in October. So why, when Amazon now has everything but the 1tb Gears bundle, which I can't see as performing any better than the 1tb Battlefield bundle, is the console performing so badly on Amazon? The 500gb Battlefield 1 bundle is in stock, and is just doing okay. Why would the trends suddenly diverge so much from the retailer? It's kind of baffling. 



If at best buy Xbox one outsold PS4 by a notable margin, then there no way PS4 won October NPD.
Best buy usually prefer by far PS4.

That's what's confusing me. I can understand Amazon giving a skewed number on the xbox when they were out of the Halo bundle, as that seemed to be the One's most popular bundle. Now, however, Amazon has the main Battlefield bundles in stock, so why is the Xbox still looking like it's performing badly? It wouldn't be good if the one decent way to track sales before the end of a month started becoming unreliable.

I've wracked my brains trying to understand it myself. At the end of the day though, it's clearly the Pro that's given MS the two wins so far and this month marks a change back to normal.

I think PS4 will sell near 2M this month.

%aybe even a little more.

The ps4 pro will be a huge hit, but sony need to do a attractive price for the ps4slim, for ppl who don't want to spend a lot.

Maybe 250$ for slim + 1 or 2 game.

Yeah it ws an odd month. An Amazon was a little off so it might be wrong again for Oct. But I am super excited for Nov and Dec!
