WHERE IS THE TOP 50!?!

I can't believe there's a possibility for Kinect Star Wars to be number one on the pre order charts. It's more likely than you think considering how big of a deal that Kinect Star Wars 360 Bundle was at Comic-Con.

After playing the beta for SWTOR on 2 different weekends, I was very impressed. I preordered so that I could get early access. I you loved KOTOR, Jade Empire, Dragon Age, and the Mass Effect games you'll love this too. I've played WOW, Everquest, FFXI, LOTRO, and Conan extensively and this has sucked me in way more than any of those!

It is ridiculous that Halo 4 is already 7th with that amount of preorders and release is in a year and there hasn't been released any gameplay. Well looks like it's gonna be bomb next year! (=

They are worried about Star Wars making money, but with those pre-orders I do not think they will be having a problem at all!

Nice to see Animal Crossing and Resident Evil Revelations for 3DS make the list.

Still, is it that hard to track Canada? Same retailers, so why suddenly stop tracking it? (I will be saying this a lot)

Mario Kart is going to do very good numbers WW the first week. Bit worried regarding revelations 3ds pre-orders seen as though Mercs flopped so badly. Luigi's mansion 2 is impressive considering there is no release date yet.
