Some Release Dates: Fire Emblem: Awakening - February 4th, 3 Weeks to Go (What the heck is Katsui?), Dead Space 3 - February 5th, 3 Weeks to go, Tomb Raider - March 5th, 7 Weeks to go, Luigi's Mansion - March 24th, 9 Weeks to go, Dead Island - April 23rd, - 13 Weeks to go. Please Update this, how can we trust weekly pre-order data if you can't even keep track of the games names or release date? Also can you please start updating your game database? I just want to add Pokemon Black2, Conquest and Forza Horizon to my collection. Makes no sense to have a collection if I can only add some games.


Michael-5 (on 27 January 2013)

I should be a game database admin, I'd keep this stuff up to date.

Request: Pokemon X & Y, and Resident Evil Revelations (All Consoles). I'd ask for Pandora's Tower, but I still can't place a pre-order.


FaintZ (on 26 January 2013)

Request: Pokemon x y nad Pandora´s Tower.


the_dengle (on 26 January 2013)

I doubt retailers are taking pre-orders for X & Y already... if you must ask about Pokémon, ask about Mystery Dungeon.

Actually Best Buy, EBGames, and Future Shop have been taking in pre-orders for Pokemon since it was announced. It should have some pre-orders for next weeks data. Padora's Tower should have data too, but not much since it's only been a couple days since GameStop started taking Pre-Orders.

Gears of War: Judgement O_o surely people aren't going to ignore that game in droves.


dj2one (on 29 January 2013)

Wow I'm surprised there is such a big diff in the 360 and PS3 preorders of Aliens CM, I got mine ordered for PS3 cause I'm addicted to trophies and want this plat in my collection, I hope there will be an active online community though.


HideoK (on 29 January 2013)

Dead Space 3 is 1 week away from release. Tomb Raider is 5 weeks away.
