Request: Resident Evil: Revelations (WiiU, PS3 360). Also wow for Zelda, its just outside the top 40. When it enters it will be the 5th Wii U game on the chart. :-)


VGKing (on 11 May 2013)

No Call of Duty Ghosts in the Top 40? Really? Not even 11k pre-orders? I don't believe it.


small44 (on 11 May 2013)

Request:Killzone Mercenary


Skrunch-a-tron (on 11 May 2013)

I hope the last of us sells great. They put to much effort into that game for only 1 million people to buy it.


nnodley (on 12 May 2013)

I think it will easily get over 1 million first week and maybe hit 2 million by the 3rd/4th/or5th week. That's a fairly optimistic goal, but I can see it doing it.

requests: dragons crown (Vita) Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD


zedo0 (on 13 May 2013)

Very glad Last of Us has a mass of pre-orders. This yr I seem to be pre-ordering lots of jap games collector editions. Hope Tales of Xillia does the bizness.


ryuzaki57 (on 12 May 2013)

Xillia is unstoppable! Go go Xillia :)


FaintZ (on 11 May 2013)

Request: Final Fantasy 10/10-2 HD, "X" from Monolith if is's available for preorder.

request: Watch_Dogs PS3 & 360


ktay95 (on 11 May 2013)
