Nielsen: Most Anticipated Titles Include Halo 4, Assassin's Creed III
The most anticipated games of the year might be obvious to some. But where do they rank on the "most anticipated" list?
Well, according to a new Nielsen report, the two most anticipated titles of the year are Halo 4 and Assassin's Creed III.
Nielsen combined eight key consumer metrics such as awareness and purchase interest to arrive at these results, and the reaction from gamers and consumers probably won't shock anyone. Halo 4 might end up being the biggest title of the year if Grand Theft Auto V doesn't make it, but it's important to note that this year's Call of Duty hasn't been officially announced yet and hence wasn't part of this poll.
Here are the most anticipated PS3 titles:
- Assassin's Creed III - 98 percent
- Max Payne 3 - 96 percent
- Madden NFL 13 - 96 percent
- Resident Evil 6 - 94 percent
- Medal of Honor: Warfighter - 87 percent
- NCAA Football 13 - 85 percent
- Prototype 2 - 85 percent
- Ghost Recon: Future Soldier - 80 percent
- BioShock: Infinite - 79 percent
- Tomb Raider - 79 percent
- NBA Live 13 - 79 percent
Firstly, Bioshock Infinite needs to be a lot higher. Come on, get with the program, people. It's nice to see Max Payne 3 sitting at #2, though, because that's going to rule. However, it's a little depressing to note that for the first time since the console's inception, there doesn't appear to be a potentially dominant PS3 exclusive for the year...
