Awesome Stuff that you might be interested in

  • Well I think it should be a cracking game particularly with the polish added form the lengthy development cycle but the 360 hasnt had many exclusvies of late so it should sell like hotcakes

    I expect it to sell 10 million, considering the lack of xbox 360 exclusvies brilliant reviews and huge advertising campaign

  • Thats because its pretty much the only exclusive game on 360 for this year. Consumers got no choice but to buy this game. It’s such a pathetic suituation at the moment for xbox 360
