Just an update as I'm on lunch. PS4 uncharted bundle is selling more than the XB1, I wouldn't say 2:1 but its definitely more. Lots of interest in the Uncharted bundle and the XB1 holiday bundle not the normal gears.

Otherwise nothing too surprising. No "rare" amiibo back in stock sales at all. Sold half out mystery box pops. Tons of random games and lots of xb1 and PS4 new controllers as they are cheap.

They come with one of five limited pops only sold in this box. GameStop exclusive ones.



Yes very good sales so far, but business overall seems slow because we opened at 5 so all those evening shoppers are sleeping. Last time we did this instead of midnight we blew up around 11.
Ah, so if it follows that model things will pick up right about.....now? :)

Stay strong workers, you can do it.

If I survived a 10 hour shift with a cold so bad three hours in I was coughing up blood you guys can do it.

Working at GameStop today. Taking my break. Basically dying at the moment.

PS4 bundle is flying off the shelves.
Great to have info from fellow GAFfers. Thanks! Waiting for PR on Wednesday is agonizing. Stay strong, guys, I'm sure it's about to get even crazier.

Ah... I'm here before my second shift starts. Eating lunch quickly.

So tired.

Looks like things are still moving along. Both systems still doing well. Neither system doing significantly better.

I'll see how it goes over the day.

That's not how is work.
We know the bundle has sold 93,000, but this doesn't mean all 93,000 were from August pre orders.
In August XB1 Halo bundle was at #24, in october XB1 Halo 5 bundle is at #25, and October was a bigger month than August, they should be pretty close...
October xb1 Halo 5 bundles were tallied sales.

August xb1 Halo 5 bundles were all click and no $.

Thanks Somnia! What can you say about game sales? Also which game (not named CoD) is doing the best? Fallout 4 or Battlefront?

Surprise by no Black Friday Retail Musings yet.
Yeah, someone should really that thread.

Thanks for the info guys. Can't wait to here from you all later.

I'm very interested in seeing how well Sony having the PS4 at $299 all weekend through Cyber Monday does for them.

Personally I don't like that thread as it always erupts into a proxy war but I'm sure it will pop up later.

This proves the original Y2Kev died and someone just took over the account. The original Y2Kev would know that every thread is a proxy war thread.

Last year, the news that Microsoft won Black Friday was reported on Monday December 1st, the Monday after Black Friday...


I would assume we will hear stuff this coming Monday

For these that believe or support the 90% digital.

UC bundle physical is doing way way way better on Amazon than UC bundle digital lol

Causal consumers prefer physical even if 9 out 10 friends buys digital.

Well the digital bundle on amazon is now at $350 and it's being sold by 3rd party retailers. So I assume it sold out.

But yea regardless that physical bundle was going to do better.

Also of note. on amazon the SW LE Vader console has been out of stock for days. It says it'll be restocked tomorrow.
