Michael-5 (on 20 August 2013)

You requested the same pre-orders to the week before, and you got them the week before

FujiokaMidori (on 22 August 2013)

Oh dear, a decline in preorders in the COD and Battlefield games from last year... that means... a decline in interest in the same game over and over again! About time!


areason (on 21 August 2013)

Reqeust Elder Scrolls: Online (All platforms).


nightsurge (on 21 August 2013)

So VGC still not believing Ubisoft when they say pre-order numbers of AC IV are higher on next gen than current gen?


ryuzaki57 (on 21 August 2013)

wow at Killzone and PS4 Watchdogs & BF4! Happy that Lightning Returns enters the top too :)


AlphaCielago (on 21 August 2013)

Request - Sonic Lost World (Wii U) and Disney Infinity (Wii U)


EricFabian (on 20 August 2013)

request: Diablo PS4 lol


Figgycal (on 20 August 2013)

Why is the Ps4 version of Watchdogs doing so well?


damoxuk (on 20 August 2013)

I think it's because whenever Watch Dogs is showed off it's the PS4 version along with the fact it's got 1 hour exclusive content. Looks to have more pre-orders than all the others combined.

I cant wait til GTA V comes out.I think it will sell over 25 million overall with 12 months.


Michael-5 (on 20 August 2013)

I doubt that, GTAIV only barely broke 20 million, and GTA V is releasing at the end of the gen. 15 million for sure is my bet, 20 is possible too, but a stretch.

Hercz (on 21 August 2013)

GTA4 sold 27mil copies, confirmed by Dan Houser back in Nov, & that's not including Episodes from LC 3mil sales, which was a DLC. So, you're wrong, & people seem to forget that GTA4 was released when 360/PS3 was still new, & still sold 30mil in 4 years. No COD game has sold pass 27mil, let alone 25mil on 1 console. COD success was a fluke, you see the pre orders, GTA5 almost 2mil, Ghosts not even a mil.
