There are two games in the top 20 to be in its final week before launch, Call of Duty: Black Ops II for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC, and Paper Mario: Sticker Star (3DS). As a reminder the Pro data is back up, which means that I am taking requests again for games outside the top 20.
The top two games have 200,000 or more pre-orders, down from three last week, and the top nine has 100,000 or more pre-orders, up from eight last week. Three games added 20,000 or more, the same as last week and seven added 10,000 or more, down from eight last week.
