XB1 X managed to sell more in just about an hour on Amazon (25 minutes according to Aaron) than PS4 Pro has sold in nearly 8 months. That's right, XB1 X is now ahead of PS4 Pro on Amazon's yearly charts, #66 vs #90. Imagine how much more it might have sold if MS hadn't underestimated demand?
XB1 X has also passed PS4 Pro on Amazon UK's yearly charts.
This is true, but the Pro was also out of stock until late April or May, I can't remember which, and preorders always do very well on Amazon. Last year the Pro was at the no. 45 yearly ranking when it launched in November, and sold about 250k. It ended up at no.46 for the year, and did around 500k. The Battlefield Xbox One S is about 15 places down the rankings from it, and likely sold a hell of a lot more in retail in general. Amazon is the easiest place to preorder, and preorder rankings tend to be much higher because of it.
I fully expect the X to have a bigger debut than Pro, MS has hyped it to the moon for 14 months, but people are going a bit crazy at the moment, heh, especially on GAF. I don't have a GAF account, but I would like Welfare to know that, yes, Amazon likely is a bad place to calculate Pro numbers, as the system was out of stock at the beginning of the year, and didn't come back in stock until the slow sales months, when the bulk of ps4 sales were driven by price cuts and the days of play summer deal, so it's very difficult to figure out just how many X's the company might have sold.
