Overview

There are two games in the top 20 to be in its final week before launch, Call of Duty: Black Ops II for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC, and Paper Mario: Sticker Star (3DS). As a reminder the Pro data is back up, which means that I am taking requests again for games outside the top 20.

Please track Killzone: Mercenary's pre-orders next week as well. Also, COD: Black Ops Declassified is also releasing on the 13th of November.


trunkswd (on 15 November 2012)

Yeah, I realized the date was wrong for Declassified. I've gone ahead and fixed it so it will show it in the USA Weekly Charts for the following week.

Request: Pikmin 3 - Also, I guess the next most logical game to graph and compare would be God of War Ascension, and maybe Gears of War 3 if pre-orders pick up. How has it not broken the top 75 yet?


Michael-5 (on 15 November 2012)

wait, it just broke it at #74

trunkswd (on 15 November 2012)

Definitely God of War. I might do a game that releases in the next couple of months before I do Gears of War.

Michael-5 (on 17 November 2012)

Grand Theft Auto would be awesome, but GTAIV released before pre-order charts right? Maybe compare The Last of Us Pre-Orders to Naughty Dogs other major franchise, Uncharted 3. It would be nice to have 3 simultaneous graphs.

Assassin's Creed 3 for Wii U releases next week before the system? WOW


VGKing (on 15 November 2012)

Persona 4 will be huge for Vita. It's launching on Black Friday week. Call of Duty for Vita released this week as well. I've been telling you for weeks. Hope you are tracking the game....


Pjams (on 15 November 2012)

Zone of the Enders (PS3) came out on Oct. 30.
