Sweepstake time.

My money's on Need For Speed Pro Street, even though it's apparently absolute shite.

But what do you reckon will be the best selling game in the final week before Christmas?

It'll be an EA title that's pretty much assured I think, NFS:PS would be horrible though as it's pants.

So that's an easy bet to place...

I've heard it's abysmal but didn't the first three NFS titles destroy all competition on the years they were released?

Actually I'm not sure that Carbon did - but the first two Underground games did didn't they?

Er I think that's a safe bet as not being the Christmas #1, it'll be either a 360 or PS2 title.

I think it'll be ProStreet. I can't think of anything else that's arriving this close to Christmas that might top the charts. Carbon owned the charts for AGES last chrim. Right into January.

We're 100% sure there'll be no Burnout this side of chrimbo, right? Because a lot of places still list it as being out on the 8th Dec which I'm sure is incorrect. If it WAS true though, that'd be a shoe in right across the board.

I hope Drake's Fortune does the numbers, I really do. It deserves to.

BP comes out at the end of January by the looks of things.

Heh, I think this is the sort of comment usually reserved for slightly lower profile releases. ^_^

With some of the US wall to wall TV advertising and a slight price cut that's in with a squeak, it'll probably still be top 10 though.

I know but it would be nice to see something surprising and good at number one.

Spice Girls or Slade FTW :P

Looks like Mario and Sonic or CoD 4 might grab it.

Wow, I'd be pretty surprised if COD got it. A tad less so with Mario and Sonic, obviously.

Well Chart-Track's data is up, the all format's #1 is CoD4, which I've no problems with, by individual format units though it's More Pseudoscience Bollocks From Dr Kawashima which I choose to ignore.

Full details here. Amusing point : EA have every Christmas #1 since 2002, guess all the Pro-Street marketing didn't work out for them.
