Request: Tearaway (ps vita) / Gran Turismo 6 (PS3).


FujiokaMidori (on 27 September 2013)

This shows a decline in the interest of people for buying the same game every year. That's good!


sasukeuchiha25 (on 26 September 2013)

Request: Disgaea D2: A Brighter Darkness


Michael-5 (on 26 September 2013)

Poor WiiU - Pre-Orders are so weak...


binary solo (on 30 September 2013)

Knack looking like it'll have an OK opening. Hopefully legs will give it a decent lifetime total. Watchdogs pre-ordering well on nexgen platforms but getting absolutely no love on current gen. I wonder if people are a bit underwhelmed by it, but nex gen buyers are getting it because there's not a huge amount of choice for nexgen yet.


pezus (on 26 September 2013)

Wow at WiiU requests. Request: Drive Club, inFamous: Second Son


Michael-5 (on 02 October 2013)

Request: Titanfall (360, One) and Destiny (PS3, 360, One)


binary solo (on 30 September 2013)

Interesting Destiny PS4 is out pre-ordering Titanfall. Destiny looks really good, shame it's FPS.


nnodley (on 26 September 2013)

Killzone is gonna be do very well. Knack should do decent.


small44 (on 26 September 2013)
