Request: Castlevania Mirror of fate


Michael-5 (on 17 January 2013)

Some release dates for you: Dead Space 3 releases February 5th, so it should say 4 weeks to launch, Tomb Raider releases March 5th, so it should say 8 weeks to launch, Dead island Riptide releases April 23rd, so it should say 15 weeks to launch, Luigi's Mansion is a Q1 2013 game, so it should say 11 weeks to launch. GTA V is Q2, so it should say 24 weeks to launch. Took me a whole 5 minutes, now can you please keep the lists up to date? Also Fire Emblem Kakusai is not the name of the upcoming Fire Emblem, could you please update something as simple as that?

Microsoft should really start letting people know about GoWJ...


JustThatGamer (on 17 January 2013)

"God of War: Ascension (PS3) added 7,063 pre-orders, down from 4,149 last week", shouldn't that be up from last week? I can't wait to see what happens once they start showing more of the single player, I think it's significantly under-tracked on here anyway looking at how amazingly well it's been doing in the online bestseller charts by Amazon, Gamestop, Walmart etc. Hopefully we get officially numbers closer to release.
