There are two games in the top 20 to be in its final week before launch, Resident Evil 6 and NBA 2K13, both 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, the same as last week, and the top 12 has 100,000 or more pre-orders, the same as last week. Seven games added 20,000 or more, up from four last week and 10 added 10,000 or more, down from 11 last week.
Games in Final Week Before Launch
Resident Evil 6 (PS3) added 21,418 pre-orders for a grand total of 132,371. 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 1.3 million and 1.5 million units lifetime.
