Amazon has announced that last week was the best ever pre-order week for their video games store thanks to PS4 and Xbox One lighting up their charts. 2500 next-gen consoles were pre-ordered every minute at the retailer and this represents a year-on-year increase of 4000%.
Last week, the Amazon Video Games store made history with its biggest pre-order week ever thanks to the launch of the Xbox One and PlayStation 4. In fact, at the peak of demand last week, Amazon customers were pre-ordering more than 2,500 Xbox One and PlayStation 4 consoles per minute.
The E3 week pre-orders of the two wildly-anticipated gaming consoles brought a year-over-year increase in orders of more than 4,000%, compared to consoles ordered during E3 week last year.
Day-one pre-orders for the two consoles was nearly two times that of all video games sales on Black Friday last year (2012)
PS4 seems to have an edge over Xbox One based on the Amazon best seller list for 2013 in video games.
