Mcvuk - What a difference a day makes.

Earlier this month Xbox One was tracking ahead of PS4 in Amazon’s video games bestselling charts. Then E3 happened and everything changed.

Just hours after Sony’s victorious E3 press event Sony’s machine overtook Microsoft’s amid stories of cancelled pre-orders.

Now, just hours after Microsoft announced that it is ditching its internet and DRM requirements, public opinion seems to be swaying back in Microsoft’s favour.

The £429 Xbox One Day One Edition is currently the second best selling item in the video games section behind Sony’s PS3 title The Last of Us. PS4 has been relegated to third.

The highest ranked next-gen game is Watch Dogs on PS4 in eight followed by the Xbox One version of Call of Duty Ghosts in 13th, Battlefield 4 on Xbox One in 14th and Xbox One Exclusive Forza 5 in 17th.

Unsurprising, they're both the new hot thing, I just wish for a more definite launch date....

I hate to say it - but Amazon's best seller list only takes into account recent transactions. MS made an announcement, Sony didn't. I'd expect it to be up.

 

It'd be more interesting to see overall sales.

They were in front of the PS4 at the beginning of the day well before the announcement, at least in the US.  Though it's probably due to the fact that there are now at least 3 PS4 SKUs to choose from and only one Xbox One SKU.

Even before there were 3, and not to mention those 3 are all around the same price as a Xbox One, the X1 was locked in the #2 spot.  Now with the DRM change, since I checked a hour or so ago, it's in #1 with Last of Us in #2.

the amazon list tracks sales over the last 24 hours. you could have sold a boatload 36 hours ago,and none in the last 24 hours,and your ranked would be lower. Microsoft sold out 4 hours after e3, then their rank started dropping. This list means nothing.

So why did all PS fan boys have street parties and celebrations when the PS4 overtook the Xbox on Amazon then if it means nothing?

Contradictions.

because PS fanboys are trying to over compensate for the lack of faith in the success of PS4.

But but teh internet cry babies werent going to buy it anyways!!!! 

Seriously as little faith I have in the Amazon best sellers list, I would expect a significant amount of people did place preorders after all the horrible restrictions were lifted. Still too expensive for me to consider, but its a start.

it's seems to polls are only true when they support the fanboy's choice.

 

I'll still be getting an xbox one while hoping they will bring back the disc-less play and digital trade-in/selling along with gamily sharing.

I might just end up buying all my games digitally so I could have that disc-less play which would make it much faster and easier to switch between games (almost instantly)

XBOXOne was ahead of the PS4 in the Amazon charts yesterday before they announced the changes.
