I'm sorry, but those halo 4 and b ops 2 numbers seem way off. vgchartz, your estimations are getting off.


SangheliZealotX (on 09 October 2012)

I'm sure there accurate, the problem for halo is that they've dropped the ball on the marketing I haven't seen ads anywhere but forward unto dawn and gamefuel should help, as for cod I guess people are just finally sick of the same crap every year. Just around my school I can tell it has way less hype than mw3

i am worried about halo 4 :/


JWeinCom (on 06 October 2012)

This has been bugging me for a while, but WTF @ Luigi's Mansion? I LOVE Luigi's Mansion, but there is no way that I can seriously believe that it had more preorders than X-Box's RE6 a week before that game released when Luigi's Mansion has no release date yet. Something is off here.


Michael-5 (on 06 October 2012)

Yea and Paper Mario which is releasing next month is way way down the list.

Well, up until recently, Halo 4 was on track to beat Reach but now the pre orders or slowing rapidly. Maybe the competition will be too much this year? Who knows.


pharmassist (on 05 October 2012)

nah, its probably just vghcartz tracking. they highly estimate their numbers. just look at their gears of war 3 estimations.

Heavenly_King (on 05 October 2012)

Interesting, even though 360 user base is bigger now in the US, shooter games are looking to sell less then before. That is if VGC is to be trusted lol.


kivi95 (on 05 October 2012)

Well 2 big fps games are taking sales from each other + Assassin's Creed 3 is releasing about the same time aswell.

Kizmi (on 05 October 2012)

Halo 4 numbers are sad :I


jamesmarkus87 (on 05 October 2012)

I think they're really overestimating RE 6. I highly doubt it'll reach 1 million for PS3 or 360. Both versions will have a strong first week, but their run in the top 50 will probably be short lived.
