Unless things have changed, Nov is the largest shopping month of the year. It contains Black Friday, after all. December actually has an entire week where sales plummet, since holiday shopping is over.

My guess is Sony couldn't get enough stock for Nov, so those sales poured into Dec.

Dec NPD is usually higher than Nov NPD.

I guess things have changed.  Recently, Nov has been just as big as Dec.  In fact, there were 1-2 years where Dec was down from Nov.  I did find a couple of exceptions in the past.  Like PS3 doing much better in Nov '12 than in Dec '12 and 360 doing the same in Nov '11 and Dec '11.

Gap is really close now on both monthly and yearly then. One more day at #2 on hourly ought to do it for Xbox unless PS4 gets restocked today.

Thing is yesterday was the last day for the November NPD period, so any sales from today and beyond will count towards December NPD. It does mean that the XB1 gets a head start on the PS4 online until Sony figures out how to address the stock issues.

Yep.  These should also be the last updates that go towards NPD.  So, that leaves the monthlies with...

PS4: #8, #69, #81, #90

XBO: #9, #25, #36, #51

So, unless there's a HUGE difference between #8 & #9, then I think XBO has won Amazon.  However, if reports hold true that Sony played the B&M game, getting much more stock in than last year, and more than MS, then PS4 still has a good shot at winning NPD.  And given that Sony was hoping to have enough stock to last an entire week, I have no reason to doubt those reports.
