(Publisher: Electronic Arts) — “Andromeda” did not get the same critical love as “Resident Evil.” In fact, many fans were disappointed with the game. But previous entries in the series carried such goodwill that it still managed to rack up impressive sales in the first half of the year. Don’t look for a follow-up anytime soon, though. Electronic Arts has reportedly put subsequent sequels in the franchise on ice.
The Switch title, launching pretty late in the game on October 27, is currently surpassing Amazon sales of many of 2017’s biggest money-makers, including Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Call of Duty: WWII, Destiny 2 and Crash Bandicoot: N.Sane Trilogy.

Rescue services search for people in a damaged building in eastern Taiwan after a magnitude 6.4 earthquake hit Hualien on the night of 6 February, 2018. Media reports said several buildings were damaged and at least four people were killed and some 100 were injured during the quake. Teams are trying to rescue people inside the buildings. Some bridges and roads are damaged and the main road to Hualien is closed. More than 100 earthquakes have hit off Taiwan’s east coast in the past three days. The Seismological Observation Center said they are cuased by the friction between the Philipine Plate and Eurasian Plate.
French President Emmanuel Macron observes a minute of silence in front of the plaque commemorating late police officer Ahmed Merabet to mark the third anniversary of the Charlie Hebdo terrorist attack, in Paris.
Another problem with some of the brands is that they don’t have much reach outside Amazon. These brands depending on Amazon search optimisation and Amazon ads are going to add essence to this problem as they would way to out-rank them. As soon as the marketplace banned incentivized reviews, it became tougher for the brands to bootstrap without putting considerable efforts into it. But, this would promise us to create better, as well as stronger brands in the near future.
Has there ever been a better time to be a gamer? 2017 was an incredible year for the video game industry, almost across the board. Do you even remember the kind of shape Nintendo was in this time last year? Things were looking very, very bad on the back of the company’s enormous Wii U flop, and now Nintendo makes the hottest video game console on the planet. Of course, PlayStation and Xbox fans had plenty to enjoy in 2017 as well, as some of the best games in recent history were released last year. Amazon just shared its list of the best-selling video games of 2017 across all platforms — have you played them all? Check out the full list at this link, or you can see the top 10 best-selling games below.
Amazon’s press release is filled with all sorts of tidbits about top-selling items along with interesting factoids about logistics. As one quick example, Amazon notes that customers ordered more than 1,400 electronic products per second via mobile devices during the recent holiday shopping season. Another tidbit is that the peak day of customer fulfillment this past year was on December 19.
The rank for one product can, of course, be different on different Amazon stores, as each store represents a different ‘market’ per se. For example, The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari is #17 in the Indian store, while #9,168 in Amazon.com.
Let’s move to Kindle bestsellers of 2017 so far. With the growing popularity of Kindle Unlimited this list will be increasingly dominated by the titles that are most popular among Amazon’s ebook subscribers.
This isn’t about how The New York Times list is biased (though it is). This isn’t about how authors buy their way onto various national best-seller lists by buying their own books in bulk (though they do). No, this is about the far more insidious title of “Amazon Bestseller”—and how it’s complete and utter nonsense.
We can’t stress enough to avoid making the mistake so many buyers have of placing too much importance on just the best sellers rank. It’s tempting to get caught up in the heady rush of seeing items fly off the shelves and your products have a small rank number, but there’s so much more involved than that.

The Asus ZenBook UX310, the long awaited follow-up to the ZenBook UX305, sports a 7th-generation Intel Kaby Lake processor and an all-aluminum frame, truly a candidate for the MacBook Air’s throne. That’s thanks in no small part to the ZenBook UX310 offering all the latest ports, including USB-C, and the option of a beautiful QHD+ (3,200 x 1,800) display, complete with 178 degrees of rotation and a serious case of the anti-glare.

With that said.. there’s a few tactics that’d definitely up that ~2.5 mark. I’d be open to any questions, suggestions, etc. if increasing feedback is of any interest to you. (without any annoying pressure sale of an app!)
It’s not usual to see poetry book among the bestsellers, but Rupi Kaur has the power. Her Milk and Honey is a collection of poems and prose about love, loss, violence, and femininity. And it occupies #3 position, selling better than A Man Called Ove by Fredrik Backman, or William P. Young’s The Shack.
Having regularly checked the special promotions on Amazon over the holidays, some of the HP Stream laptops were offered as low as $179. You would think this very good deal would result in big sales numbers, but evidently not enough to outsell the top Chromebooks on Amazon.
However, the list of books sold according to ranking do not tally at all. According to the ranking scales I should be selling hundreds per day but that is not happening at all and all I have is a Bestsellers ranking with few sales. It really does not make sense as this is a hot genre.
Whether you need gift ideas for your nephew’s birthday or just looking to treat yourself, this list will come in handy. From Cards Against Humanity and Chrissy Teigen’s new cookbook to Gillette razors and water filters, all ages and interests should be covered. The top purchases below are broken up by category, such as toys and games, electronics, books, clothing and beauty.
Next I bought three of my books myself through the Amazon website and when I still saw no sales on my author page, and questioned them again, they stated again that there had been no sales. Now if this isn`t fishy I don`t know what is.
The Amazon Echo is technically a Bluetooth speaker, but you wouldn’t buy one just to play music. You can ask for the weather, control smart lights, search the web, order from Alexa Deals (and save a lot sometimes by doing so), as well as thousands of other “skills.”
Amazon’s own Fire TV Stick is currently the best-selling item in that category. In fact, Amazon’s own devices — from its tablets to Echo speakers — consistently account for eight of the 10 best-selling electronics devices.
It would be interesting to see Amazon’s own accounts to see how they rank against the rest of us… even if you list them with an asterisk… would they take the top four spots or is there a top seller 3rd party that does better than the host?
When it comes to ranking highly on the Amazon Bestsellers lists, as the ranks are based hourly (or daily if the above information is correct), then a quick spike in sales due to a successful marketing campaign, followed by a lull in sales a couple of days later will only serve to see the product’s rankings quickly plummet. It’s far better to space out a product launch over a period of week, so Amazon can collect consistent historical data to make predictions on future sales. This will thereby make it easier for you to break into higher spots on the ranking table in future.
A novel by the internationally celebrated author Arundhati Roy, The Ministry of Utmost Happiness, was selected as #1 book. It’s the intricate and graceful story of lives touched by magic, broken by tragedy, and mended with love.

There was silver-edged news elsewhere for Google. Buoyed by plenty of offers, incentives and discounts ahead of the main Christmas shopping period it’s perhaps not surprising to learn that the Chromecast remained a big xmas seller, albeit placing second to Amazon’s $39 ‘Fire TV Stick’.
As such, we foresee that launching new products in “Electronics” section is going to be tough. As you might be aware, several established brands have a greater presence in the marketplace already and they won’t allow much room for the beginners. However, we can also notice that there are a large stream of new mobile cases and other smartphone accessories brands having entered the market now. The reason is that these are among the easiest categories of products to distinguish with choices of designs and colours. On the other hand, it’s also true that this reason is not enough to get recognised because there is simply too much of similar products and this differentiation factor is not sufficient.
“The secret to cracking the New York Times Best Sellers list is that they only compile the list based on certain stores that report their figures,” she explains. “The first question any book lover should ask when you go into a book store is, ‘Are you a New York Times reporting bookstore?'”
As you can tell from the list above, the best selling games were a bit dominated by Nintendo, but a couple of PlayStation hits did crack into the top 5, as Horizon Zero Dawn and the ever popular Call of Duty: WWII sold well enough to give itself a spot on the best sellers of 2017. For a look back at Horizon Zero Dawn, make sure to check out our review of the game below:
