Cheers for the list!

Hitman should do pretty decent.

Wow! After the big games everything seems small in comparison. Especially wii u stuff......yeck! Hope more pick those games up.

The list is gonna be dominated by GTA pretty soon. But there are a good amount of good games releasing during the first half of next year so the list won' be as boring as usual at this time.

Btw, more PS3 games than X360 ones in the top 20 (8 to 5). When was the last time that happened?

No troll is too much for me to handle. I rehabilitate trolls, I train people. I am the Troll Whisperer.

GTA V has had the biggest increases this weak. Impressive.

New Super Mario Bros U is already out....or am I missing something?

Well aside from big multis like GTA V, Tomb Raider and Dead Space 3 the only exclusive MS has for 360 Next Year is Gears of War: Judgment.

I dont see any reason 360 players will buy much more games for 360, 720 is coming out and all MS resources are focused on its launch right now.

360s best days are behind it. Halo 4 and Forza Horizon are amazing but next year the Console will die SW Exclusive Wise.

No reason to keep making exclusive to 360 just bring the 720 with a great launch line up and drop the price of 360 to 129$, it will keep selling because of Kinect and Multis just like Ps2 but its time to move on.

That was a Sunday. This chart only shows up to Saturday.

There was a pushy guy in Game trying to make me pre-order GTA V yesterday.

Anyway, as usual, thanks for posting this, Barozi.

Genuinely intrigued what kind of numbers Persona 4 is going to do first week. I actually reckon it's going to be pretty high, but not because I think "Oh it's gonna sell like crazy", more like it's a pretty niche game and the numbers are going to be very front-loaded and not leggy.

Decent final week for PSABR, interested what kind of FW numbers that is gonna do too, but I won't hold my breath.

Aside from that, weird seeing Bioshock as top of the pre-orders. GTA is gonna topple it soon. Awesome increases from both of them (and deserved, too, the new trailers are awesome). Gonna be a big dump of Wii-U games too, wonder what's gonna be coming up next week. It might be time to trim the chart down a bit, there's not much going on at the very lower end.

As a final note, got a little big jealous to see Port Royale 3 getting an 360 release (you guys get Tropico as well, I'd love to play that on a console), but then I googled it and saw it was on PS3 as well! Awesome news.  Despite the bad reviews, I think I might give it a try.  Not enough games like this make it to consoles.
