Halo 4 most eagerly awaited game in the US: Nielsen

MUMBAI: With the holiday season in the US right around the corner, consumers are eagerly awaiting the latest video-game releases?a list that varies considerably by console, according to the Nielsen Game Rank for Q4 2012.

Halo 4 continues to rank highest for Xbox 360 gamers, while Call of Duty: Black Ops II is an extremely close second for Xbox 360 (0.25 per cent behind), and also tops the PS3 list.

Just Dance 4 still provides the greatest degree of allure for Wii gamers.

NBA 2K13 and WWE ?13 rank in the top six and top eight respectively, for all three current-generation consoles (Xbox 360, PS3, Wii). And while not releasing on Wii, Assassin?s Creed III and Resident Evil 6 rank between 96 to 98 per cent for both Xbox 360 and PS3. The new reboot of Need For Speed: Most Wanted also lands in the top six titles for both of those consoles as well.
Apart from Halo 4, the other first-party exclusive title from Microsoft cracking the top ten for Xbox 360 is Fable: The Journey, while Sony?s exclusive LittleBigPlanet Karting rounds out the top ten for PS3. Transformers Prime: The Game hits the top ten for Wii, and though it is not exclusive to Wii, it is offered only on Nintendo platforms.

Narrowly missing a top ten ranking was the recently released and industry-acclaimed Dishonored. A new property in a sea of sequels and powerhouse franchises, it stands to reason that apart from the avid gamers the general gaming public may not have been as acutely aware of this title when the data was collected over the past month.
