Crysis 2 gonna flop. Look at Xbox 360 version, there are 2 weeks to launch and it still don't pass 100 k. It will be huge fail like Bulletstorm (which was a huge disappointment itself, gameplay sux ). It's gonna be hard year for EA

Joel12345 - there are 5 360's for every 3 PS3's. It makes sence that pre-orders are of a grade higher. BTW Where are the 3DS games? I NASCAR honestly tracking above Super Street Fighter IV 3D??

Gears of War 3, 28 weeks to launch, gets the second more pre-orders this week? This game is going to rock hard, it's already tracking way above Halo Reach. Maybe this game can do more then 7 million..
