Could someone tell me why Gears: Judgment pre-orders are that low? I'm sensing a little inaccuracy there.


Kizmi (on 25 February 2013)

I have been wondering that since VGC first released its preorder numbers. If they are true, Gears-series is having tough times.

if anything the preorder numbers are usually inaccurate, but sadly most of the time VGC has the numbers higher than they actually are

Problem is GOWJ was only available for preorder since november, just 4 months ago. In comparison, GOWA was available since last Apri.

Request Killzone Shadow Fall


small44 (on 25 February 2013)

request:Killzone Mercenary and Soul Sacrifice


platformmaster918 (on 24 February 2013)

Could GoW open bigger than Gears? That would be a big turn from their last installments. Also LoU is looking fantastic with 18,000 pre-orders after being delayed till June. It will have nothing launching against it and E3 is over at that point so hopefully it'll get some nice spotlight (thinking of Infamous 2's unfortunate release).


Dangerousjo44 (on 27 February 2013)

looks like alot of my fellow gamers are ready for the next gen ps4,xbox720 so their saving there money and not buying great games that they wont be able to take to their next gen console i understand and im doing the same so hopefully youll be able to download these games as a next gen ver already waiting 4 us online to buy after we pick the new hardwere of are own taste and im a xbox guy myself


simon80 (on 26 February 2013)

request: Sniper Ghost Warrior 2


FaintZ (on 25 February 2013)

Request: Pokemon x and y, Soul Sacrifice, Killzone Shadow Fall


Michael-5 (on 25 February 2013)

Karaoke Joysound was cancelled a long time ago it released in 2008 in Japan, I don't think anyone is taking pre-orders for this game.


Michael-5 (on 25 February 2013)

Request: Pandora's Tower (Wii), Tales of Xillia (PS3), and anything PS4.

Lawlight (on 25 February 2013)

Where's Monster Hunter?


Bristow9091 (on 24 February 2013)

Does anyone else find it funny how bad Gears of War: Judgement is doing compared to Gears of War 3? Well, not so much funny, but, I don't know what the word is I'm thinking of, either way, it's doing pretty terrible in terms of preorders compared to its predecessor...
