I'm dying for Halo 4..... Although I thought it was a great game, Reach destroyed the competitive online Halo scene. Hopefully Halo 4 rebuilds it better than ever.


zzyoshiman (on 01 July 2012)

8 and a half years for the last guardian?


Michael-5 (on 02 July 2012)

Three and a Half, and hey, it's one of those games that's always there just so the PS3 can have more announced games then any other home console, even if it never releases.

Wow, black ops 2 is having some serious trouble. I thought that week it was below mw3 was a one time thing but I guess not. Halo FTW!

I wish Borderlands 2 and Far Cry 3 would sell more than Black Ops II, but oh well.
