Nielsen’s recently published Game Rank survey shows that consumers are most looking forward to getting their hands on Assassin’s Creed 3, Halo 4 and Madden NFL 13 this year.

  1. How is Madden more wanted than Resident Evil 6? Eh, I guess I wouldn’t know since I don’t play sport games.

  2. wow, both xenoblade and the last story went through hell to be localised and now they’re at the bottom of the wii most wanted list. that’s brutal irony.

  3. Giving away nintendo coin code for nintendo club that I got from steel diver to whoever adds me 3308-5494-1135

  4. This is a really bad time for the Wii. In many people’s eyes, it is terminal if not dead already. With the fact that hasn’t had any decent games recently, plus the Wii U is to be revealed in a few months, it is not surprising that it has been practically abandoned.

    I mean, does anyone actually have a Wii as their main game system? I don’t know anyone who does. A few young kids, maybe.

    1. Nintendo fans are probably playing Wii.
      All the releases for other systems are extremely uninteresting right now ( I guess Skyrim fans are still into that, though).
      Personally, I’m going back through Metroid Prime Trilogy just because of my undying love for those games/ anticipation for Wii U.

    2. I am still playing my wii. And i do play it much more than my ps3. My wii is hacked so i have ALL the good games. When i go online with MW3 there are alot of other gamers there too so the wii is still playing alot.

      Get N or get OUT!!!!!

  5. I’m surprised that The Last of Us wasn’t on the PS3 list. I wonder if it because there is no solid release date. I think it is going to be an amazing game. Especially since it is developed my the masters behind Uncharted, Naughty Dog!
