You Dead Island graph is labeled wrong again. According to you Riptide released and we're waiting on the original.

EA has been talking about Battlefield 4 coming to the PS4 and Nextbox, how has it not been announced? Also why aren't they taking Killzone pre-orders? Wasn't there an article talking about PS4 hype is booming?

Is the rather low level of pre-orders of Assassin's Creed IV showing that the series is starting to become fatigued? I know its still a way off of its release date but a game that normally have more pre-orders even at 30 weeks. Also surprised Naughty Bear has a sequel considering how poorly the first one was received.


Michael-5 (on 11 April 2013)

Well III was a sudo conclusion to the franchise. It was suppose to end with 3. Plus Assassin's Creed IV will be released on 5 systems this year, not 3 like last year, or 2 the year before. Sales will be distributed over the higher number of platforms.
