    so, this website (player essence.com) assumes that the sales have increased by 875% just based on the fact that the console moved up in ranks on amazon?
    1) do they have actual sales figures?
    2) do they know for sure that Amazon's ranking isn't rigged by amazon themselves ? (like app store rankings, etc.)
    This smells fishy at best. I'm not posting this on our home page. I do believe in an increase but ... this much?

    I bought one that night, but the Target price drop was the reason; xbox one didn't really influence my decision BUT it did justify it

    My guess is that people were waiting on the Xbox reveal before they committed to a new console, once they witnessed the abysmal mess they bought the most favorable console.

    I don't know, guys, this looks legit... well, if you squint first. And turn around. And dive headfirst into the nearest sandpit.

    It's quite sad if you're celebrating #40 on the charts.

    Well, if you came from 390 to 40 it's actually quite significant.

    People aren't going for the shit Microsoft is offering and it's poorly thought out rules on used games and internet requirements, the Xbox One is a doorstop to a gamer. I'm glad, the industry will do better without Microsoft.

    I mean do things ever work that way?

    "Well, i'll buy a WiiU if the Nextbox suxxx"
    /Xbox one reveal
    "Well I'm buying a WiiU now" -in unison with enough others to make the WiiU sales numbers "jump 875%"
