Wow GOW3 is gonna be such a beast!  It might just end up being the biggest opening week to date for the PS3

You think its going to sell more than 3.2m (1.6m in NA) first week? (thats MW2 btw)

Unless you meant PS3 exclusive. Which is I believe MGS4 with 700k in NA and 1,7m WW. I can see it beating that, at least in NA and Eu, no way in Japan.

Yeah I meant PS3 exclusive.

Wow by this chart Heavy Rain is getting no hype. Just as I suspected that game will not sell well.

I'm not sure I trust this chart. The Ps3 version of so many games being ahead of the 360 one strains credibility.



The fact that halo reach is even on the list so far ahead of its release should mean that overall its going to have a huge amount of pre-orders. You cannot say reach isn't doing well. Its doing fantastically.

Wow, white knight is only 10 below, the so called "legendary" FFXIII. thats saying something.

Star Ocean: The Last Hope International and Halo: Reach are awfully low though...

That is perhaps the most flawed logic I have ever heard.

It's 100,000 pre-orders below just the PS3 version of FF13, and FF13 has six weeks left.

Really? i dont think it is. for the simple fact one is well-known ww and the other is held up by word of mouth alone.

How is Halo:Reach doing bad? It's not releasing till this fall. Personally, a game that still has over 6 months till release that has 30,000 preorders is doing quite well.



God of War 3 is beast !

FFXII is starting to pick up !



Who's the best Pac, Nas, and Big. Just leave it to that.

PLAYSTATION®3 is the future.....NOW.......B_E_L_I_E_V_E

Slaughterhouse Is The Sh*t  .... NOW ........ B_E_L_I_E_V_E

Surprisingly God of War is getting top billing at GameStop over Final Fantasy for our March advertising. Every GameStop hangs two giant posters at the front of the store for the biggest game dropping that month. We currently have posters for Bioshock up and before that was Mass Effect. I believe before that was either Modern Warfare or New Super Mario Bros. (I believe both, actually, though I can't recall which one was first).

Today we got in God of War posters for March, which means we won't be doing anything too big for FFXIII (aside from the inevitable midnight launch).

This is a GameStop?  They can't sell out of reserves.  Sometimes a Colelctor's Edition or something will be cut off early, but that would be a company wide occurance and not specific to any individual store.



God of War III is a beast !

Biggest 1st party Sony release INCOMING ! 1 million WW is pretty much confirmed if these pre-order numbers are correct (Something was wrong with MAG numbers)....
1 million in NA alone if Sony advertise it well...

I thought you knew I worked at Best Buy....We've been doing more midnight releases lately. Honestly, the midnight releases we do are epic fails though. :/ So I guess i'll just get my copy of FFXIII at midnight from gamestop. :D
