CD Projekt Red's Cyberpunk 2077 PS4 and Xbox One Collectors Editions hold the first and third spot respectively on GameStop's pre-order lists. Final Fantasy VII Remake Deluxe Edition also topped Amazon's pre-order charts from 10 to 14 June.

World's biggest gaming expo - E3 2019 - has come to end, and it's safe to say that it's been a major success for some developers and publishers. Two studios that will certainly be happy with the impact that E3 had on their titles are Polish developer CD Projekt Red and Japanese publisher Square Enix.

Their games - Cyberpunk 2077 and Final Fantasy VII Remake were probably are some of the most anticipated titles in the last few years, which can also be seen in the pre-order charts from GameStop and Amazon.

According to data from data gathering and analysis company Thinknum, Cyberpunk 2077 and Final Fantasy VII Remake Collectors Editions were absolute winners of pre-order mayhem that started during E3 2019.

At GameStop, Cyberpunk 2077 not only beat out all other games announced at E3, it even toppled the perennial powerhouses - PlayStation Store $10 Gift Cards. The game's PlayStation 4 and Xbox One Collectors Edition versions took the number one and number three spots in aggregated sales-rank.

Further down the list, the game's standard editions are also present but it looks like players saw a real value in the ultimate package. 

On Amazon's chart,  Final Fantasy VII Remake Deluxe Edition dominated the sales-rank chart, topping the always-dangerous $10 PSN gift card. Interestingly, Cyberpunk 2077 didn't do well on this chart and can be found far below even some older games such as Marvel's Spider-man.

One thing to keep in mind though is that not every game that was shown at E3 2019 is available for pre-order at the moment. Also, both of these games still have a long way to go before we get our hands on them and it's safe to assume that players would love to see more gameplay and other stuff before they decide to trust CD Projekt Red and Square Enix with their wallets.
