7 Xbox One Games People Are Buying Up Before They Are Even Released

If you're a game developer, the video game market can be an absolute gold mine...if you create the right type of game that is. 

Looking at the Amazon Bestseller's list for Xbox One, you'll see that a whopping 7 out the top 10 video games haven't even been released yet (would be nice to have that kind of success if you're designing a game, right?)! 

Some people buying these games won't have to wait too long with release dates as soon as tomorrow. But others are pre-paying for games that aren't going to be out until early to mid November. 

And 2 more on the list are unreleased console/game bundles; one with Call of Duty and one with Sunset Overdrive...bringing the top 10 list to a whopping 90% of unreleased products.

So what do you think this says about the video game industry and the business surrounding it?

Here are the 8 unreleased games in the top 10, in order, along with links and prices. Keep in mind that there are two pairs of games on the top 10 list that are actually different editions of the same video game (so that might say something about our love for Football...and advanced warfare?).

Price: $59.96

2. Diablo III: Ultimate Evil Edition
