Five games in the top 30 added 10,000 new pre-orders this week. The top nine games have 100,000 or more pre-orders and the top 21 games have 50,000 or more.

Games in final week before release – Four versions of Call of Duty: Black Ops are in the top 30. They are for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii and PC.

@David I am hoping for Epic Mickey to be close to the 300,000 or more range for the first week. Also interesting to see how it does in Europe, because it comes out on Nov 25th i think.

Zelda Skyward Sword at 21# without a release date. Also two Wii games at top 10. Wii!!

@David Yes looking like it's gonna be around that much. Unfortunately though, haters are still gonna bash it's decent sales unless it does FW sales of a million. Why can't these guys realize that Wii (even top tier ones) cost a lot less to develop for and doesn't need a million in sales to be profitable!
