Thoughts on the list

Looking at the numbers, it’s pretty obvious that FIFA rules the roost, with FIFA 12/13 being on top 3 of most platforms. Need For Speed: Most Wanted failed to make it to the top charts, despite being the #4 pre-ordered game. If you’ve played the game(review here), you’ll know why it’s not in the top selling list.

I was curious on knowing how Game4u’s downloads4u service performed, but Milestone refused to disclose the units sold and all I got was that

Battlefield 3 Premium and Hitman Absolution: Professional Edition were our big sellers

It’ll be interesting to see how the upcoming year will play out – especially with the Digital downloads service.
