so proud of Tales of xillia GO GO GO!!


PigPen (on 25 May 2013)

I don't have my COD: Ghost preorder yet.


MARCUSDJACKSON (on 24 May 2013)

request GT6. GT6 243 preorders are very disapointing, but it's a franchise that grows.


Kyuu (on 24 May 2013)

WOW Tales of Xillia is actually doing pretty good!!! :)


ironmanDX (on 23 May 2013)

I wonder when CoD: Ghosts for the Xbox ONE will show up...


Michael-5 (on 23 May 2013)

Probably in a week or two. I'm assuming Gamestop & EB Games were ready to take Call of Duty Ghost and X-Bone pre-orders the day it was announced, but it still has to get over 16,000 pre-orders to appear on the cart.

Actually never mind, EB Games/Gamestop are not taking pre-orders yet, so when they do, a week or two after that.
