Rare Replay is Amazon’s most-pre-ordered game announced at E3

Amazon has revealed the Top Ten most pre-ordered games revealed at this year’s E3.

On top are two Microsoft titles – game anthology Rare Replay comes in at No.1, while Gears of War: Ultimate Edition is second.

Then its two titles from Bethesda – the new Doom title and Dishonored 2.

And – perhaps unsurprisingly – the long-awaited Final Fantasy VII Remake also makes an apperance in this chart at No. 5.

The online retailer has also revealed the Top Ten games that saw the biggest uplift in pre-orders following E3. Forza Motorsport 6 topped this chart, with an increase in pre-orders of 1005 per cent, while Star Wars Battlefront’s pre-orders leaped 857 per cent.

Note this information tells us less than you might think. For example, we have no idea what pre-orders these games had before the LA show. Forza 6 might have only have one pre-order prior to E3. Without knowing the actual change in unit sales, this information does not tell us much.

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,” said Russell Jones, video games category leader.

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”.
