Gears Of War 3 Most Anticipated of 2011
A new survey was conducted by tracking firm Ipsos OTX MediaCT that showed Epic’s finale “Gear of War 3” as the most anticipated game of 2011. “Diablo III” and “Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword” were also high notable mention as they there the top two recession proof games of 2011. What is interesting looking at this list is all twenty five titles are sequels, or games based off of an established franchise. According to Gamasutra, gamers were four to five times more likely to purchase Gears of War 3 than any other game that was listed. The interesting chart, which is pictured below also shows the ranks between the US markets and UK markets. Gears has won out right in both markets claiming the #1 spot, while Pokemon and Mortal Kombat, which posted well in the US, was not so much over seas.
One thing is for certain. We are really looking forward to the games that made this list. For me personally, Gears in particular. Lets just hope that some of these games, such as Bioshock, Diablo III, and Star Wars: The Old Republic make it out in 2011.
