At the time of writing, FIFA 09′s at 4/1, with PES 09 at 8/1.

Other big releases in the offing are Gears of War 2 at 8/1, Tomb Raider: Underworld at 33/1 and SingStar ABBA at 80/1.

Outsiders so far are Wrath of the Lich King at 150/1 and Resident Evil Zero at 250/1.

    As console specific odds gears of war 2 will out do Call of Duty but as a all rounder it probably will be Call of Duty.

    no shit, Call of duty is Multi-Platform.

    Gow2 will probably be the biggest seller on 360 this christmas with Cod:Waw just after im guessing. You can’t put games like singstar, and gears of war 2 in this as they are not multiplatform.

    Sure, Gears 2 will sell assloads because there is a good install base of Xbox 360′s, and gears 1 sold an assload of games also. As for Singstar, it’s gonna sell for sure, but nowhere near all the titles mentioned.

    wrath of the lich king 150/1 ?! with the millions of nerds drooling for this expansion pack, of course its gonna sell millions! I don’t understand why its odds are that low. Sure, its PC only, but there are what…8 million people actively plaing Wow?

    WoW fans will buy Lich King as soon as it comes out, while it’ll still be selling at Christmas the big sales are mostly going to happen in the first couple of weeks.

    150/1 are far too short odds, it has no chance of being number 1 at Christmas.
