Bestsellers of 2014, so far.

Destiny PS4 #23
Destiny XB1 #46

So yes, the #1 is from the beta about to be released.

From a website that charges $0 for a pre-order beta code.

Very impressive.


It's really not much less impressive than every other place that charges $5. Are you saying that everyone is just going to cancel their preorders?


I'm saying many people will, yes. The same thing happened with PS4 pre-orders.


Just as many people will keep their preorders too, unless you have some information or figures that I don't.

If 50% of people cancel their preorder and just as many don't, 50%, then you have lost half the overall sales.

Reasons to cancel preorder:

You don't like the game.
You like it but not enough to keep a preorder.
You don't want to buy it from Amazon.
You want to upgrade to LE or Ghost edition.
You had no intention of buying just wanted beta codes.

No one is saying they will all cancel the preorder, but you have to admit that plenty will for the above reasons.

You know what I'm thinking right now? I'm thinking I should make my own video game and call it "The Numbers Sims!" The whole game will be nothing but running numbers simulations, and that's it. The game just throws a bunch of numbers at you and you sit there and watch. It'll be in 9000 resolution and run at 900 FPS. It'll be the best game ever and make the #1 spot on all charts...simply because it seems that's all that matters to people these days. Best. Game. Everrrrrrrrrr.

Oh thank God, I was afraid I wouldn't enjoy this game if it wasn't #1 on Amazon.
