by William D'Angelo, posted on 29 November 2012 / 8,309 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.

No games have 200,000 or more pre-orders, and the top five has 100,000 or more pre-orders, down from eight last week. Two games added 20,000 or more, up from one last week and eight added 10,000 or more, down from nine last week.

Gears of War pre-orders probably won't get too huge. This game isn't made by Epic, and the primary trilogy is concluded. I consider myself to be a big Gear fan, but I probably won't pick this up at full price either.

Request: Fire Emblem: Awakening (3DS), Dragon Quest VII (3DS), Shin Megami Tensei IV (3DS), Monster Hunter 3G (3DS/WiiU) or Monster Hunter 4 (3DS). Anything 3DS will be fine.
