What's In a Name? Xbox Series X, Amazon Ranks, and Confusion

An unusual thing happened on the way to a Microsoft sell-out of Xbox Series X preorders; sales of Xbox ONE X also appear to have significantly increased. At least at Amazon.

But what can we take from the apparent increase? How does Amazon's "Movers and Shakers" list actually work? Are there really shades of the "Wii U" here?

Or was this just all representative of a different kind of confusion?

An Xbox by any other name would still smell like plastic and dreams...in Virtual Legality.
