Titanfall seems to be a system seller

To clarify how the list changes, here is the top selling of 2014 at Amazon in the US

http://www.amazon.com/gp/bestsellers/2014/videogames/ref=zg_bs_tab_t_bsar

1. Thief Gold for PC
2.PSN Gift Card
3. PS4
4. PSN Gift Card
5. PSN Gift Card

The other list is updated hourly and is an indicator what is selling well at the moment, not overall. Overall is the list you should focus on if you must use an Amazon list.


Please read the OP. The 2014 Bestseller is not pertinent to this discussion. Let's not make it a spitting contest.


So, you want to pick and choose? Hourly only matter to you, but overall doesn't? Is this going to change if the overall shows TF or the TF bundle topping number 1?

but that is the only way to gauge the impact of a product, the list you provided is only updated by the amount of hourly sells, it's reflected based on what is released and what is soon to be released.

Otherwords, there has been times where the worst piece of s*** game in history has been #1 on that list, I'm talking about Aliens CM was on that list, among others. That is why I'm saying that hourly updated list is not an accurate form of measurement with that site.

TL:DR On that list, Aliens:CM has been #1 before, so what does that list show us?

Hourly List: Currently what is selling, doesn't have to sell a lot, just more that day.
Best of 2014 List: Has the most sales overall, which btw, Aliens CM never made it to this list(2013) but was #1 on the hourly list.

No, I've been monitoring it since the beta. Listen, as I said, this is not spitting contest. The PS4 has undoubtedly sold better than the Xbox One. Happy now? This is about Titanfall and the Xbox One. Forget the PS4 exists.

If you are going for a Titanfall is a system seller narrative then the overall list is very important if not more than a hourly one. I never even brought PS4 up, lol. Also, you can't look at it in a bubble where nothing else is there.

Edit: I'm not saying any of it is selling poorly, but Amazons top selling list is by no means any indicator of how well a product is doing because the positioning of the list is so volatile.

*sigh* I feel really stupid now. I completely missed the 'updated hourly' bit, and I agree, that makes the list a lot less useful. A weekly update would be better

Well Titanfall has made me buy a Microsoft system this year because of the bundle. I skipped the 360 last generation so now I will have both system this generation. Now all i need to do is think of a great gamertag before Titanfall launches.

Point taken, hourly is less than ideal. Also, on reflection, the best of 2014 is absolutely relevant. So whoever I disagreed with, you have my unreserved apologies.

Still, I do think TTF might be selling systems. Time will tell.

Titanfall is #1 in my book. #1 last week, #1 this week and #1 when it comes out in March. The Amazon numbers can change, but its #1 with me. I think about this game daily ever since the beta stopped. I have a large handful of friends who text me on a daily basis counting down to Titanfall.

I dont agree. It will sell well ofcourse, thats because there isnt much else to buy.
