What’s your most anticipated game this year? There’s a good chance it’s Halo 4. The shooter came out on top of a list of games we’re most looking forward to on Xbox 360 in 2012. With PS3 owners choosing Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 as their most anticipated, this year’s first-person-shooter war will be the closest fought yet. Which will you be picking up?
Halo 4 was declared the ‘most anticipated’ game for Xbox 360 in a survey conducted by marketing firm Nielsen, who know a thing or two about what gamers are getting most excited about.
For years the Call of Duty series has had a bit of a clear run, breaking sales records in consecutive years on release. This November, it could be different. Halo 4 hits the shops on 6th November – a week before Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 on 11th November.
With Halo 4 topping Xbox owners most wanted, and Black Ops 2 topping PS3 owners most wanted, it’s going to be close. Black Ops 2 also comes second in a list of Xbox 360 owners most wanted games.
Other usual suspects include Assassin’s Creed 3 as the third most wanted game on both Xbox 360 and PS3. More popular games include Madden NFL 13, Resident Evil 6, and Borderlands 2. Meanwhile Just Dance 4 tops the list of games Wii owners are most looking forward to.
