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

God of War will probably become the best selling exclusive title of 2018 when it releases. Then I suspect Nintendo may push ahead with Smash Brothers. Either way, I expect a 2.5 million first week for GOW.

Damn, just two weeks and SoT is completely gone from the Top 100. I doubt that fastest selling bit holds up, now.

It's not like Ryse, Re:Core, and Quantum Break had great sales after their releases. It just highlights how weak the new IPs exclusive to X1 have been this generation.

Definitely have to agree with you there. It doesn't help that MS seems to be padding out the rest of the gen with timed exclusive indies. I guess some are true console exclusives. And it could change at E3, but so far, it seems like a lackluster lineup for the last 1-2 years of the gen. We'll have to wait and see how much MS is willing to push Xbox whenever they launch the XB2, cause right now the message is clear that Xbox is no longer a top priority for them.

I think MS will have some GaaS in the works. I also think that current IPs like Halo and Gears will be more GaaS orientated or have spin offs that are. It'll explain the business decision behind making all new Xbox games available on game pass day one. 



I got switched to an evening shift today, so I'll get the April thread up after I eat breakfast.

But first, here's the final rankings for March (previous update on 3/27):

Nintendo Switch (neon): #18 (—)

SoT is still #3 on top paid of the Xbox Store, and it's on Game Pass, Did you really expect this game sell well on retail?

Is that good though considering it's just released. What's above it and below it? Might give us some context. 



Wrong thread.
