To celebrate their upcoming GamePlan Insights research tool, Ipsos have released a new chart of the most anticipated titles, ranked by purchase intent. Despite a few differences in what US and UK gamers are looking forward to in the whole list, both nations are apparently most anxious about the launch of Gears 3.

The company has stated that “based on recent data pulled from GamePlan UK, Sony appears to be well positioned in 2011; three of the top ten and five of the top 25 most anticipated titles are first-party PlayStation offerings. Microsoft stakes claim to the most anticipated title of the New Year, Epic Games’ Gears of War 3, however; only two of the top 25 titles are first-party Xbox 360 titles. Nintendo is publishing the only Wii title in the top 25: The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword.

Ipsos’ Director of Gaming Insights, Nick Williams, further added that “while Kinect has the slight edge over Move in the battle of new motion control peripherals, Sony has orchestrated a diverse 2011 lineup of exclusive software that could see it regain control of the UK console wars. As projected by our tracking data, the recently released Gran Turismo 5 and LittleBigPlanet 2 have been well received by UK gamers, and the pending launch of Killzone 3 (ranked 2nd) should add to PlayStation’s momentum in 2011.”

Thanks to Industry Gamers for the info.

    my most anticipated game is killzone 3, followed (not in any order) by: gears 3, portal 2, uncharted 3, journey, resistance 3, infamous 2 and last of the guardians. i’m sure i missed a few, but that is most of them

    I’m sorry but that list is SHHH**. The most anticipated game of 2011 is without a doubt uncharted 3, not killzone 3 or gears 3. It may be Gears 3 since xbots have nothing but that. And i’m pretty confident that uncharted 3 will win game of year if not will be ME3. now killzone 3 is a HIGHLY anticipated game more so in the europe since the dev team i believe is from the around there i think. if anything it really should be uncharted 3, followed by Killzone 3 or gears 3.

    That’s very true but it really just pisses me off because we ALL know that although Gears 3 will be a good if not great MP game. I think that MS is trying to promote their ONE game this year, boy they’re in trouble. Go Uncharted and ME3 game of year. But i wont be playing ME3, i just need to give credit where is do. great game just not MY kind of game.
