LevelUP (on 25 October 2012)

it's sad that Need for Speed: Most Wanted is not even top 50, but considering EA business practices and the origin bs, they've asked for this.


chidori-chan2 (on 25 October 2012)

Mediocre pre-orders for Medal of honor 0_o


SecondWar (on 27 October 2012)

Tried the demo, and that pretty much summed up the game

Medal of Honor is dying slowly, but Warfighter will accelerate the process.


SnowPrince (on 25 October 2012)

I expect a good First week for AC III: Liberation !! And those Persona 4 pre-orders are like CRAZY !


Michael-5 (on 28 October 2012)

That's because EB Games and Future Shop are already bundling it with the Vita. I bet Best Buy is also in the States.

Hopefully, Halo 4 can still sell more than 3 million units worldwide in its first week.


ewaugh (on 25 October 2012)

Request: Pikmin 3 and Paper Mario: Sticker Star


Heavenly_King (on 25 October 2012)

Splinter Cell: BL (360) has the PS3 box art XD


Michael-5 (on 25 October 2012)

Request: New Super Mario Bros. (Wii U)


VGKing (on 25 October 2012)

Persona 4: The Golden looks to have the biggest first week launch ever for a PS Vita game. Doubt it will have legs though. It's a niche game.


FailureIsNotAnOption (on 30 October 2012)

Black Ops 2 will sell better than expected. I promise you that. The reveal trailer is off the chain!


FailureIsNotAnOption (on 30 October 2012)

Black Ops 2 will sell better than expected. I promise you that. The reveal trailer is off the chain!


VGKing (on 25 October 2012)

Halo, Call of Duty, Forza....they are all tracking lower than the previous games in the series. I think console fatigue is finally setting in.


Michael-5 (on 28 October 2012)

Yup. Repetition and sequals are finally tiring people. Common next gen. I hope ZombiU sells decently, it's only number 73 on the graph, but Mario Jumped like 40 positions in 3 weeks so anything can happen.

Warfighter is awesome people are crazy to buy black ops 2 over Warfighter. Activision keeps feeding the same formula over and over and over ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ boring. The videos on youtube show that its basically the same as the original black ops. Instead of remote control car you have a flying shooter mini hover craft. The guns look essentially the same killstreak everything is just a hair different with a makeover. People are suckers Warfighter is happily different. The bad review deal with the story which I never play the stories just the multiplayer. The multiplayer on warfighter shines and it a great game. With all the nations militaries in this game I think it will sell better than people think. I say 2 or 3 million with word of mouth. Because medal of honor is flat out awesome.


oniyide (on 27 October 2012)

im sorry but no, the game is getting virtually no hype or ads, at least the last one had that going for it. Funny you the bad reviews deal with story but you dont play the story it self?? That makes no sense how can you recommend something if you never played ALL of it? And you havent played COD either.
