by William D'Angelo, posted on 16 October 2012 / 9,101 Views

Overview

There are no games in the top 20 to be in its final week before launch. As a reminder the Pro data is back up, which means that I am taking requests again for games outside the top 20.

The top five games have 200,000 or more pre-orders, the same as last week, and the top nine has 100,000 or more pre-orders, the same as last week. Five games added 20,000 or more, the same as last week and eight added 10,000 or more, up from seven last week.

BTW I know there a lot of games in the charts are already out. The release dates were wrong in database. I've gone ahead and fixed what I know is wrong. Hopefully they will be fixed for next weeks chart.


Michael-5 (on 16 October 2012)

Look at Super Mario Bros Wii U bouncing up the charts! 45- - >35 and only 3 weeks back it appeared at 65.


ryuzaki57 (on 17 October 2012)

ZombiU is really low at the same time. Nintendo seems to be failing to win back core gamers in the US

VGKing (on 16 October 2012)

I think Black Ops 2 is under-tracked. Gamestop says pre-orders are highest of all time so that would be they should be higher than MW3...... BTW any1 know if Black Ops 2 will launch Day 1 digital on PS3?


ewaugh (on 17 October 2012)

it's highest that gamestop has ever had but maybe people only preordered at gamestop this year and did it no where else
