What other sequel this year has sold/pre-ordered more than the prequel? MK9, Portal 2...what else?

No honestly. If you were given an answer would it change your life?

Only game I'm getting on the Xbox. This gen needs more co-op games like Gears.

EDIT: REAL coop games like Gears. Games that were made specifically for co-op like Army of Two, Resident Evil 5 etc..

Does something have to change my life for me to want to know it?
I'm just trying to gauge buying habits of people. Seems there's a downward trend somewhat with sequels this year with games like KZ3, LBP 2, SOCOM 4, MOTORSTORM Apocalypse all selling less than their predecessors even with many million more consoles in the market.

If I told you the answer was 4. There are four games this year that have sold and were preordered more than Gears 3. Would you even remember that? No, probably not.

Its quite obvious you were stealth trolling with that comment trying to say that Gears 3 is the most anticipated game of the year. Its like you were begging for someone to come and retaliate with a fanboy comment like

"Gears is the only exclusive teh Xbots have that's why people are playing it lolololol"

Your excuse that you care what people are buying doesn't even relate to your question. (Its also nice that all the games listed in your response are PS3 exclusives)

Don't bother replying ba- oh never mind.
