Meanwhile, there’s a second list that’s a bit interesting: the Top Ten games that enjoyed the biggest uplift in pre-orders since E3 – these are for games that we knew about before the event. Forza Motorsport 6 experienced the biggest jump – an increase of more than 1000%, while crowd-favourite Star Wars Battlefront saw a leap of 857%.
Take these details with a grain or two of salt – we don’t have any actual figures to go along with the lists, meaning we have no idea where the pre-show pre-orders were sitting just over a week ago.
However, it is clear that fans are frothing at the mouth over a couple of Xbox One exclusives, says Russell Jones, video games category leader at Amazon:
This year’s line-up of games was one of the best yet, with titles such as Fallout 4 and Uncharted 4 some of the most anticipated of recent years. It’s great to see Forza Motorsport 6 and Rare Replay as the stand out winners, with customers responding incredibly well to their exciting presentations at the conference.
