VGChartz USA Pre-Orders Chart, April 14th 2012

For the past four years I have been found frequenting VGChartz.com. Those of you who don't know about this site I'll give you a brief overview of what to expect from them.

Simply put this is a sales and stat tracking site for video games that was founded by Brett Walton and launched back in June of 2005. Every week his team break down what the systems do/have done in seven different markets around the world and provide a Top 100 of all software in all of these markets (Global, USA, Europe, UK, Germany, France and Japan) as well. Outside of the actual sales numbers that are put up every week, VGC also has the Top 50 Pre-Orders chart for the USA market. A great tool to see where people are preemptively spending their hard earned cash on games that are not out yet.

There is a small but nice community of passionate gamers on the forums which have been easily divided up into categories based on system and topic. A great place to find very heated debates over the games themselves plus how certain games stack up with similar titles.


Here it is, the USA Pre-Orders chart from VGChartz.com for the week ending April 14th, 2012
