Xenoblade ftw. Doing good i see.

Xenoblade Chronicles continues to surprise, but look at Luigi's Mansion! Right up there with no release date in site! The 3DS' largest launch yet? Maybe...


mikecm87 (on 28 March 2012)

Seems like forever ago when I first saw The Last Guardian trailer.


Postkast (on 28 March 2012)

Where is Prototype 2 for xbox 360, it should be higher than on the ps3, well the last game sold better in the US. Hoping Max Payne 3 will rise :D


MonstaMack (on 29 March 2012)

Assassin's Creed III setting Ubisoft preorder records Third full installment in stealth action franchise has already topped Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood's preorder total, will see publisher's biggest ever marketing push It's not even listed here... WTH????

Anyone have any idea where Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance went?


Michael-5 (on 29 March 2012)

Lol, looks like it was forgotten or re-scaled. I noticed a lot of already released games got rescaled (Gears 2 and Uncharted jumped 500k within the last couple months).
