“As a comparison site, we’re constantly getting searches on our site by gaming fans keen to bag themselves the best bargains on upcoming video games, and over the past 3 months we’ve seen a real surge in searches for titles yet to be released. The Resident Evil franchise has long been popular amongst gamers, and with Resident Evil 5 having been released a good few years ago now, it seems that fans are keen for the next instalment to be released.”

He continued:

“Some of the most anticipated releases aren’t due to make their way onto the shelves until December 2012, so we’ve got a while to wait yet. It was certainly interesting to see the Vita Call of Duty game make its way onto the release though. It seems that even with just a working title, Vita fans can’t wait to get their hands on a portable COD game. It’ll be interesting to see if COD will dominate the portable space like it has for platforms over recent years.”
