Killzone: Shadow Fall Pre-Orders Beating Forza 5, Ryse
It's understandably a very popular pre-order.
But did you know it's outpacing the biggest names on the Xbox One's launch list? According to a Cowen & Co. report, we get a peek at the pre-order standings for 2013. As if anyone is surprised, Call of Duty: Ghosts sits at the top.
But look at Killzone: Shadow Fall, the anticipated PS4 exclusive. It's tracking ahead of Forza 5, Ryse and Dead Rising 3 on the pre-order numbers list. The 2013 Cowen Video Game Odometer is based on an analysis of NPD sales data and Amazon.com best-seller results from recent years. Then games are given a score on a 100 point scale; the Killzone sequel scored a 30.3, significantly higher than Forza 5 (18.8), Dead Rising 3 (15.0) and Ryse (13.2). Still, Knack is only at 7.7 and DriveClub is sitting at 3.0, so Xbox One pre-orders are more popular overall.
We probably shouldn't forget that pre-ordering DriveClub seems silly to many. It'll be free to PlayStation Plus subscribers, and you'll need Plus to play online, anyway. As for Shadow Fall, it's undoubtedly the most anticipated PS4 exclusive for 2013.
