Pokemon Sun/Moon, Final Fantasy 15 Top Amazon's Best-Selling Holiday Games List
Here's one top-seller list that Call of Duty won't make.
With the big shopping season now behind us, Amazon has shared the best-selling products in many categories across the site during the holidays. In terms of games, it was the latest Pokemon and Final Fantasy games to come out on top.
It didn't share specific sales figures for any of this, only saying in a press release that Pokemon Sun, Pokemon Moon, and Final Fantasy XV for PS4 were the three best-selling games on the site. Amazon also didn't share the specific period this covers, but it presumably spans parts of November and December.
We already knew Sun and Moon had a very strong launch, breaking Nintendo records for fastest-selling game in various regions around the world. Square Enix announced that Final Fantasy XV shipped (but didn't necessarily sell) 5 million copies at launch worldwide, making for the fastest start in the series' history. That may be somewhat misleading, however, as previous games didn't launch simultaneously around the world as this one did.
Call of Duty, perennially a big seller, has struggled with Infinite Warfare by series standards, though it still came out on top of the NPD's November sales charts in the US. Its omission is probably the biggest surprise on this list.
Elsewhere on Amazon, the best-selling movies were The Secret Life of Pets, Finding Dory, and the complete Harry Potter collection. Across the site overall, Amazon's own products dominated, with the Echo Dot, Fire TV Stick, Fire tablet, and Echo topping the list. You can see what came out on top in other categories here.
