by William D'Angelo , posted on 01 June 2012 / 10,137 Views

Overview

There are no games in the top 20 to be in its final week before launch.  As a reminder the Pro data is back up, which means that I am taking requests again for games outside the top 20.

The top two games have 200,000 or more pre-orders, the same as last week, and the top seven has 100,000 or more pre-orders, down from nine last week. Two games added 20,000 or more, the same as last week and three added 10,000 or more, the same as last week.

WAIT... Black Ops 2 is REAL? Holy shit... I thought people were being sarcastic, and just saying "Black Ops 2" as a joke relating to how many CoD rehashes there are. What are they going to make next, Modern Warfare 3 part 2? I hope EA doesn't get a hold of this post, don't wanna give them any ideas.
