Well, well, what do we have here? As of this writing, the Xbox One is the top-ranked seller on Amazon, overtaking a spot that was previously occupied by the PS4. The PS4 standard edition, "Watch Dogs" bundle and "Battlefield 4" bundle are now ranked fourth, fifth and eighth overall, respectively, on the site's video game store. "The Last of Us" occupies the second slot. Check out the photos below.
The recent sales surge of Xbox One on Amazon could be due to Microsoft's big announcement last week, where the company reversed course on used games and DRM for its next Xbox. Last week, Microsoft revealed that it would change the Xbox One's used games policy so that they reflect the used game policies currently in place for the Xbox 360. Microsoft also stated that it would no longer require a daily Internet check-in.
While these are both positive developments on the surface, it's important to note that the two big changes that Microsoft announced to the Xbox One come with some significant compromises. You can read about the three big features Xbox One gamers will be losing as a result of Microsoft's reversal here.
