It's interesting to see that under 'video games' its a complete console pack and not just a certain title like Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 or Battlefield 3 and that the GeForce GTX 550 Ti is a best-seller. Next up we have Amazon's list:


Electronics: Kindle Fire -- Kindle Touch -- Kindle

Video Games: Just Dance 3 -- CoD: Modern Warfare 3 -- Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

Definitely interesting to say the least. Amazon enjoyed shipping more than four million tablets and e-readers throughout December, some what of a great achievement for the Kindle, Kindle Fire.
