Currently the Xbox 360 is #2 and Halo 3 is #1 on the Amazon.com list. The Wii and PS3 are still in the top 5 with Wii coming in at #3 and PS3 at #4.
I never imagined a 50$ price cut would do that.
not $50, $50 get them to #5 and then back to #8 but $70 get them to #2, going to be #1 soon because they have the best deal of all.
! It'll be more interesting to see how quickly it drops down the list.
This gaming news report about X-3-RROD-Sixty and [email protected]
Its all about PS3 and Nintendo Wii!
That's after a $70 price drop. If you look it's $329.99. Also this is the only online store where you can get a new legit 360 premium for $329.99, so obviously it's going to be #1.
The bestselling new & future releases in Video Games.
Top 4 All Xbox Baby, FTW!!!
However it will go down perhaps tomorrow or day after.
It x360 the least wanted.
i think most people are actually exchaning theirs with new ones.
x360 is sold out NOWHERE and is available in all stores across NA
it is at the #1 AND #11 spot
the problem is (and always has been with these amazon posts) that we dont know how many each product is selling
any mathematician will tell you that in this instance, ordinal rankings really arent that meaningful
And the Elite is number 8 amd the core is #2 on the biggest movers....WOW.....
Amazing for Microsoft.
Amazing for us.
The more people 'Jumping In', the more Developers follow! Reap the rewards boys.
Also, lol at the Sony Fan reporting! It was ok when they did it with PS3, fcuking hypocrites.
I'm a Sony Fan and to some 360 fanboys they call me a Sony Fanboy but i'm the one that posted this so lets keep the gloves above the waste!
Lame: (55 minutes ago)
Amazon lists get updated quite frequently.
Reported by: ItsDubC
Yet he didn't complain with the PS3 News on Amazons list. Hypocrite, a prime example.
Things will be interesting from here on out.
Just like many people expected... Sony's price drop is undermined by Microsoft's price drop.... Let's hope Sony goes nutz.. and drop their prices once more... just so Microsoft can do the same... and us gamers can endup saving lots of money in the process.. come on Sony drop the price! drop the price!... look Microsoft is killing your glory! Go after them... hehe.. I love the console war...
You know after seeing how immature it was seeing the fanboys shouting and dancing around about the PS3 sales spike, it feels sort or hypocritical for me to jump around about this.
I will say one thing though. At least now we can all accept that any price drop will shift units. And it's asinine to declare the death of a console after one month of good sales from the competition.
Huh. Right. Wishful thinking.
hey that reminds me...still have to preorder my copy :D
It has begun the halo juggernaut is rolling and nothing better get in it's way...
(I guess as we get closer and closer to the release date, the sales will start to hit the fan.) and halo has always been a system seller so this does not surprise me.
It's just a matter of all the rights things lining up perfectly, Great game, Great timing (nothing else out), and Nice price cut. The Perfect Storm.
Some people are saying it's selling for $329.99 at Amazon. You save 20 extra dollars.
and it begins.
you wont see another price drop from the PS3 for a long time.
360 is already in #2???
wow.....and it's only 50 bucks difference.
Halo is number one. Wow.....
The momentum of the PS3 was overtaken by a 50 dollar price drop.
Go ahead and boost your ego and laugh at PS3 but don't say I didn't warn you.
take your own apology the giant which is Sony has lost their dominance over the gaming market
Only so they can regain it. I've always said bullies are meant to be clobbered. The position of underdog is the best postion to be in. No doubt PS3 is the underdog this generation. I couldn't see them winning any other way.
Sony falling off their horse so early in this generation was the best thing that ever happened to them.
Edit: @ the disagrees. It's not good for them? Lol.
50 dollar price cut
is not worth a 3 week wait
when it time for repairs
maybe later on when the new
model comes out
but for right now well pass
You guys are getting hype over nothing.
but when ps3 was on top it was posted 5x a day on n4g and none of you sony kids were complaining so just relax kid I know it hurts you to see 360 success but what do you expect from a console with great games? relax sony kids and just enjoy the ride, I bet you guys will start reporting this news now ha ha sony kids=
vvvvvvvha ha look at them squirm and make excuses, isn't the poo-ray3 player still available for a $100 less?
oh oh oh wait a minute now its #1 with Halo3 #2 ha ha has that ever happened with poo-ray3? Nope I mean you got to have games to do that. lol can someone please post this news http://www.amazon.com/gp/be...
Of course Amazon means something.
It's a Big store so their number matter.
It's just that this time they don't. The console is $20 cheaper than all other stores so we can't really use their top list for anything right now.
Enjoy your ban?
Whoa.. What is it people don't understand.
It is $20 cheaper at Amazon compared with everywhere else. Of course it's on top. This is not what is happening at other stores.
Don't get your hopes up. They will only be crushed.
I see you didn't understand a word of my comment. Do you need it in German?
just as you guys raving how good the ps3 is selling and now its sales are declining and the 360s is increasing, i think u mite need to do some damage control mate
Its the only thing xbois have to look forward to for this fall and 08 so its a given its gonna sell well, that doesnt change the fact that it looks like an xbox game and offer nothing new that hasnt been done in any FPS before and its overated.
Unreal 3 > halo 3.
This is deja vu, except now it's Xbots chanting prophecies and cheers when before it was Sony fanboys...
I think the 360 will continue to sell well, but my honest belief is that the Wii will still eclipse both of its competitors for quite a while. That's what happened with the PS3's $100 price cut. I guess all that remains to be seen is whether the out-of-nowhere (or for-no-apparent-reason) success of the Wii will be enough to take on Halo.
I cannot wait until the week leading up to the 25th of Sept. I remember the release of Halo 2...and everything I was telling people that would happen coming to pass. Ad's for Halo 2 at movie theater's, talk of the game all over the radio, movies, record breaking sales across all entertainment mediums, etc. I cannot imagine that hype, destruction, and publicity being amplified but I know it will be, it's already began. It was crazy, listening to radio hosts talk about a GAME (let alone my favorite franchise), when no one but gamers show games any respect as an art or respectable form of entertainment.
This phenomenon they try to railroad constantly (gaming) is going NOWHERE. It's here to stay n' folk better get used to it. I'm talking about M$, Sony, Nintendo n' every game developer n' publisher there is.
switched Xbox is now #1....
Also, take to mind that the Price cuts involves All the SKUs
So the Sales are spread out, unlike the Ps3s 60 GB
if you add all 3 the total xbox sales are much larger.
Someone update this! 360 console is number one!
Rejoyce for the xbots. I think they deserve this after all the horrible things they've went trough with their hardware. It's not fun to love a machine so much when it's not loving you back. Rejoyce o´ holy halo, the Covenant will live on forever. Oh by the way, did you know that Halo has a seriously religious storyline?
Bubble for you .. great comment.
The 360 owns this holiday season without a doubt.
It gives you a slight idea where shoppers heads are at but we need bulk of the industry numbers.
It actually doesn't even give a slight idea this time.
Amazon is underselling it at $20 less than all others.
So these numbers can be way off.
The perfect storm "happening" is based on a horrible event where lots of lifes where lost. I suppose the connection to the movie perfect storm is obvious. However a perfect storm should be avoided if it happens, keep out of the storm or you might get hurt.
See how stupid it is?it updates very often. Its no point in creating topcis ever tiem a system moves up.Be it PS3, Wii or 360
i didn't see you saying that about all the ps3 articles about its amazon #'s so your just contradicting your point.
can someone post this on n4g just as the sony kids did 5x a day, you see all your bs about the 360 always comes back to haunt you damm if you kids would just stop hatin maybe you wouldnt get laugh at so hard when the shiii bites you in the @ss
#1, The very" concept of consumers goods being on sale will spark bargon shoppers frenzzies. Hell I remember when PS2 was dropped by #20 bucks.
You just got a $70 price cut at Amazon. What do you expect? Are you that stupid that you didn't expect it to start selling better?
I've been trying to tell them but they just will not listen.. hehe.
Is there any point to the name calling?
So why are you flaming again? Since you saw this coming..
You Sony boys got pretty excited and posted quite a few articles about the PS3 being the bestseller at amazon because of the price drop......
you do know that the ps3 is still available for $100 bucks off right? imagine if micro cut it that much, I guess even with them being out a yr longer they still werent as desperate as sony though, sorry sony kids=
" I would like to thank Bungie for keeping me so relevant...thank MS for marketing the heck out of me, and always... BELIEVE"
as Master Chief left the stage:
" Oh, special shout out to Cortana...I see you girl...FINISH THE FIGHT September 25! "
Ahhhh, Sony Trolls, got to love them.
They're so cosy here in the Xbox 360 section, they love the gree essence and good news, back in Sony land they were scowled and forced to read bad PS3 news after bad PS3 news. They just want to own an Xbox 360, but Kaz will come r**e them if they did.
I say we let them nuture their secret love for the Xbox 360, because we know they do.
Those with any amount of intelligence knows these Amazon reports are...really nothing. The NPD shows real numbers. As Green stated it simply shows where shoppers heads are at. The ironic thing of this all is that when the PS3 was doing all of this (and better I may add, I remember what..a 1000% increase on Amazon or something? You get my drift) I can't remember reading one post from someone stating how irrelevant that was etc. And the news of it was 5x's as much of the 360's recent spikes in sales since the price drops. The 360 (so far), has had half the success the PS3 has had during the peak of it's price drop, yet folk are on that like white on rice.
The hatred amongst gamers is crazy, in a sickening way.
Gotta love Amazon. Very accurate indeed.
Check out http://en.wikipedia.org/wik... http://en.wikipedia.org/wik...
Don't you think that the creators thought of this. The storyline is oozing with religious symbols and it's supposed to. That is what makes this game intressting, dont you see?
360 and Halo 3 on top at Amazon?
Seriously though Amazon sales don't mean much. I am a 360 fan but this really isn't news.
Same for PS3.
It is however a positive that the price cut has spiked interest in 360.
its positive news for 360, but that just means its time for sony kids to find another "horror story" about 1 guy who had his 360 break 20x ha ha sony kids are pathetic they post so much bs but they just can't stop 360 because its a better gaming console. OK I'll stop pickin on the kids now but honestly they deserve it after all the hate an bs.
I wonder what retail is doing. 1 month before Halo 3.
I got one free from work and I still wanted the PS3 more. Why, most games for the 360 will end up on a PC anyway. And I will play Halo, but not yet....not yet. Hope it's good.
ps3 still top 5 with no games.....think about when they start getting games
wii is still top 3 with no games... think about when they start getting games
talkin about hype huh to bad they will never deliver.
good for the 20 gig version.. If I was MS I'd want to get rid of dead weight also.
Congratulations guys lets hpe it lasts but if after this week i hear that the site is biased because of ps3 fanboys you might as well just shot yourselfs in the head since there is only air in there.
i thought they had forza 2 on #1 overall because og the price drop
x360 isnt selling anywhere else
