There are two games in the top 20 to be in its final week before launch, World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria (PC) and FIFA 13 for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. 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 five games have 200,000 or more pre-orders, down from seven last week, and the top 12 has 100,000 or more pre-orders, up from 11 last week. Four games added 20,000 or more, down from five last week and 11 added 10,000 or more, up from nine last week.
Games in Final Week Before Launch
Word of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria (PC) added 13,112 pre-orders for a grand total of 162,001. Expect first week sales in the USA at retail to be in the 200,000 to 300,000 unit range. Expect the game to sell between 0.8 million and 1.0 million units lifetime.
