Grand theft auto 5 already creeping up in the charts. The game will be huge. And I would also like to request GTA5 for next week.


Bristow9091 (on 08 November 2012)

Well look at this, Playstation All-Stars Battle Royale is finally in the top 20... pretty disappointing numbers though really, are Sony advertising it anywhere at the moment? Since y'know, it's out in 2 weeks, lol.


man-bear-pig (on 08 November 2012)

Looks like CoD is finally starting to show some franchise fatigue...


Otacon (on 09 November 2012)

I'm stumped last preorder article you said Black Ops 2 on Xbox 360 had 1,217,231. But this week it added 265,000 units but is now at 1.8 million preorders, that doesnt add up. How does this work? or are preorders numbers just guess work?


SnowPrince (on 08 November 2012)

Request: Soul Sacrifice (PSV)

Michael-5 (on 08 November 2012)

Why does every WiiU game except Black Ops and Mario have incorrect release weeks listed? Last I checked ZombiU, Assassins Creed 3 and NintendoLand were launch games. How does AC3 release before the system?


Michael-5 (on 08 November 2012)

Request: Gears of War Judgement. Doesn't this game come out in march? How has it not broke the top 75?


Olivernintentoal (on 10 November 2012)

Request: rayman legends wii u
