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

Looks like PS4 domination has been replaced by Nintendomination. Nintendo’s really been killing it. Good for them.

Seriously though. Mario games aren't typically frontloaded so Mario selling so well out of the gate is terrifying for the implicatioms it has long term. This is looking like it will easily be the best selling 3D Mario to date.

I keep saying its because Super Mario 3D World, being a 3D 2D'ish type game, put people off.

Its now been forever since people had a real 3D type mario game (mario galaxy 2 was back in 2010).

The thirst is real.

Mario Odessey is going to sell huge amounts.

Are Amiibos the only NFC toys that are selling well?

Dont know about selling well, but at least its safe to say its the only one left thats still profitable.



My (locked) thread about how difficulty should be a decision for the developers, not the gamers.

I mean, I think part of the reason for the inactivity is that this month is kinda like the second Cavs vs Celtics game this past playoffs. I mean, there just comes a point where a curbstomp stops being amusing :P

Basically how I've felt the last few years with ps4 dominating the world.  It gets to the stage where you just take it for granted.

I'm surprised Sony aren't making the US more of a battleground at the moment. I guess in the states black Friday being such a big thing, that it eats up October, but surely instead of writing off the month they can make lesser deals already. In the UK for instance you can get the Gt sport pro bundle, with 2 extra games for $30s less than list price.

In the UK too, Amazon has a lot of online shopping competition, meaning it is usually the worst priced place to shop, so last on the list of where most gamers would buy from. I get the feeling the US could use this kind of competition too, because the lack of year round good deals and obvious price fixing will keep the majority of sales in the holidays again and more so going forward.
