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 a weird one, when I've been looking around I've actually seen a lot of people cancelling pre-orders as well due to the loss of digital game sharing. Swings and roundabouts.

The PS4 started dropping in the Amazon charts when Sony decided they'd sold enough of the base $399 models and started doing $499 SKUs with one game and some PS+.

All the game sharing and DRM publicity stunt was worth something in the end.

$499 is a really good deal for one game and I'm assuming one year of ps+.. $60 game and $60 ps plus.. That's a Damn find price at only $100 more.

Keep the good news coming sony.

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

True, I saw it.  It'd been switching back and forth for quite some time.

I don't doubt it's a good deal but one could argue that you're getting quite a bit for $499 with the Xbox One SKU as well.  Kinect, if you like it or not, is part of the deal and that's probably easily at least $100 on it's own.  They're also giving you exclusive content for launch games as well iirc.   Maybe some other little things to.

$20 off (going by your numbers) is "a really good deal"? I can get $20 off any day on PS4 at Target (not now obviously).

Compared to Xbox 1 which comes with no game or subscription @ $499.. yeah, a good deal.

Compared to Xbox One, PS4 is already a deal at $399 :laugh: why do you need to add a game and a subscription?

Uh, you don't. But if you can get a bundle for the same price as an XBox One and get a game + 1 year of PS+ with it. That's going to be bad news for MS.

Most XBox 360 owners will have some months left of XBox Live. My XBox Live account expire at the end of march 2014.

I hate bundles. 400$ is a nice price. Give me the choice to complete it the way i want please.

I think we are going to find that these bestseller charts are going to go back and forth from now until launch. If we keep posting a topic for every time the leader changes the gaming section is just going to look like 1 big advertisement for Amazon.
