Extremely impressed with Skyrim, releasing on the same week as the phenomenon known as MW3 and still pre-ordering over 1.2 million units. Here I was thinking 360 owners only buy shooters.
Edit: Halo 4 already over 100k units and no release date. BEAST.

I am also impressed with Skyrim's numbers. Don't be fooled by the numbers shooters do on 360, there are a lot of of 360 gamers that love western rpgs.

All 360 fans only love shooters is just a stereotype, just like all black people love chicken. The fact that Skyrim on 360 almost has more pre-orders than MW3 on PS3 is damn impressive.

Focus2228d ago

I do love me some chicken though. He he he. Skyrim is pre-ordering almost 3 times more on 360 with an install base less than twice as many before anyone mentions the 11 million difference

Noticeably_FAT2228d ago

I wouldn't be surprised to see Halo take back the most pre-orders for an Xbox 360 game. I am guessing between 3-4 million by the time the game releases late next year.

Halo CD Anniversary has nearly 600k preorders...madness for an HD remake.

SlipperyMooseCakes2228d ago

Halo An. Will have a lot of preorders, but it will not beat MW3. It is a remastering of a 10 year old game so a lot of people will not purchase it. However, Halo 4 I think will give any game a run for its money. Not only is it a Halo game, but the return of Master Chief. We haven't seen a game released with him in it since 2007. And we all remember the spectacular Halo 3 launch.

Wait a minute, I thought all X360 fans only buy shooters? What the heck is Skyrim, Assasin's Creed Revelation, and Saint's Row the Third doing on the chart. :S

Modern Warfare 3 is BEAST. Its on track to beat Black Ops' record for highest first week sales of all time!
