Xbox One Fails to Paint Amazon’s Top 20 Best Sellers Chart Green, Beaten by BioShock and Skylanders

When the PS4 launched, it painted the top twenty best sellers chart on Amazon.com almost completely blue together with its own games and accessories on its launch day, taking sixteen spots out of twenty.

With the launch of the Xbox One the results are quite a bit more mixed.

If you take a look at the best sellers for 2013 in general the ps4 is ranked 5th where the Xbox one at the 10th slot. 500$ is just to much to shell in on a game console. There are people who have no problem but the majority just rather wait or go with a cheaper alternative.

I think people also want the better gaming platform.
Nobody cares about media apps, especially on Xbox One that are locked behind a pay wall.
If people cared about this, they would stick to the PS3 which is free all around.

And if the casual market wants TV and media apps, they can just get Apple TV, Chormecast, Roku, a DVR or any of the much more affordable and accessible options out there. Not a $500 gaming machine.

IPTV is the future. Good thing Sony is working towards that.

TomShoe1043d ago

If you want to watch TV on your Xbox, then fine.

I will play games on my PS4.

Honestly none of this makes any logical sense to me. Hey lets support the ps4 when it has a rather meh selection of games. But when the ps3 is pumping out bad ass exclusives faster then possibly any console ever, no fuck that, lets support the 360. Which owned to top spot for like 3 years straight, 3 years of which the comparison of games is an absolute and utter joke.. Like I am talking its laughable how many games ps3 had over 360... maybe it is just the casual CoD players, and in another 2 years after all the hardcore players are locked in MS will again own the American market I do not know.

SITH1043d ago

Soooo... we can not look at amazon Ps4 confirmed buyers negative reviews as as indication of ps4 failures, but when we look at Xbox one sells it is a magical indication of how well the games are selling? Because EVERYONE buys from amazon.com right?

"I think people also want the better gaming platform.

funny thing is that the PS4 is also winning the user experience with console itself from the organized UI and faster install speeds to the unlocked media apps and video streaming.

@SITH

Comparing a 100 people with PS4 problems considering they have 10,000 of thousands of consoles sold is very minute.

Follow this link, and click find a store (target). All you have to do is put your zip code, or city/state. It will show you stores with xbox ones in stock. Mine had 20 stores total 10 had stock 10 did not. So it is NOT sold out in my city. Go colts!

Xbox one has machines for sale they are NOT sold out.

ugh how will i secure a copy of skylanders swap force now

SnotyTheRocket1043d ago

I shelled out like $504 or something. Tax was $59 bucks, plus a controller.

HardcoreGamer1043d ago

everyone is really after the console for games, and ps4 is it

NOT THE XBOX one

so basically it wont sell yet, it may not take off.

but overtime it may blow up like the wii did because of its novelty tv features

Scatpants1042d ago

The wii was cheap from the start this thing is starting off expensive

Gamer19821042d ago

The end of the day price is what made xbox the main console in the US last gen and its whats put them behind so far this one. The decision to include Kinect in every box has seriously hurt them.

Playstationologist1042d ago

Price made no difference in my choice. I would have paid $100 more for PlayStation but I wouldn't have bought xbone for $299. Xbone and ms are just a mess right now.

I don't see how price would matter to many. I mean, you're already spending $400... if you really want xbone then what's another $100?

lol Just Dance (Wii) is selling more DR3, F5 and RYSE

Clover9041043d ago

Pouring salt into the wound...

Kayant1043d ago

Amazon uk is interesting also.

PS4 is 3th in bestsellers for 2013, Standard XB1 is 35th & Day one Fifa 14 bundle is 46th·

black0o1043d ago

interstIng .. This gen UK is 2nd biggest market for the Xbox, looks like MS is about to loose some market share

PlayStation_41043d ago

lose*

and they've been losing market share for quite a while actually, Sony has been pushing the PS3 hard for a while over here and the sales seem to prove that it's working.

PS3 tends to sell about 2-5k less than the 360 per week (PS3 even outsells the 360 on the odd week), which is an improvement compared to a few years ago.

B1663r1043d ago

Well that is an obtuse way to look at it. Most people who mail ordered probably bought their x1 right on the xbox store.

tubers1043d ago

And Sony must have sold more at their own chain or other retailers.

/s

xXxSeTTriPxXx1043d ago

Not even the xbox fans could co sign that.

Clarence1043d ago

You know that's not true.

Hicken1043d ago

And you've caught an acute case of wrong.

ShinMaster1043d ago

lol You do know Sony has an online store as well, right?

Scatpants1042d ago

Thats where I got mine, but this is still a perfectly valid way of gauging its sales. PS4 is beating the shit out of it. XB1 will go down in history as the most blundered console launch of all time.

indysurfn1042d ago

Finally the 3DO can stop being the bunt of the joke!

Bioshock triple pack PC wins!

no wonder, Bioshock 1+2+Infinite for $15

Agent_00_Revan1043d ago

Yea that's a smoking deal! what's funny was they were selling each for like $10 and Infinite for $15 I think. So that desk was a no brainer.
