There are no games in the top 20 to be in its final week before launch. 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 six games have 200,000 or more pre-orders, the same as last week, and the top 11 has 100,000 or more pre-orders, the same as last week. Four games added 20,000 or more, down from five last week and seven added 10,000 or more, up from six last week.
