Ladies and Gentlemen: Place Your Bets!

GTA: San Andreas - General News | @ 03:26 AM MDT | By Neil
In a move that wouldn't be uncommon in the music industry, UK betting giant Ladbrokes have again announced the contenders for the "Official Computer and Video Games Christmas Number One." Revealed today by industry regulatory body ELSPA, the contest is set to be hotly contested with games like Halo 2, Half-Life 2 and everyone's favourite crime simulator; GTA: San Andreas launching just weeks before the key month of December. Keen punters will note that San Andreas carrys odds of 7/1 to be the biggest selling game of the festive season, behind joint favourites Goldeneye: Rogue Agent and Call of Duty: Finest Hour at 4/1. It sure looks like being an interesting Christmas season, and we'll keep you updated with developments.

i would say Half-Life 2 because people have been waiting so long. but when you think of it, it will lose sales because not everyone will be able to play it. i think it will be a close race between San Andreas, Halo 2, and Half-Life 2.

on a side note, why did they add titles to the list that wont sell barely anything. Miami Vice *cough* Vice City rip off *cough*, Sing Star Party(never heard of it), and Lemony Snicket's A Series Of Unfortunate Events. do they even think these games can compete with the rest.

Does anyone know what the current sales figures are for the top games that have come out this year? It may be a good tool to judge who might be the most successfull this Holiday season.
