Top Games in South Africa

58 second read

Megarom has sent out a press release proudly stating that it managed to take the top two places on the gaming charts for November for both the Xbox 360 and PS3, it also managed to place two titles in the top 5 on the PC charts.

While at this time I don’t know what the other titles are we can at least confirm the following

In November 2007 Assassin’s Creed took the number 1 spot for both the Xbox 360 and PS3 and Call of Duty 4 took second place on both those consoles.

COD4 managed to come in first on the PC sales chart with The Witcher coming in at number 5.

These are true retail standings as measured by a third party company.

Obviously November is a very important month and I have to say that I was suprised by Assassin’s Creed beating out my personal game of the year COD4.

I am working on getting regular official charts so please be patient… I want to know all the other details as much as you.

    Yeah, 3rd party analyst, huh? I can believe this just based on reasoning but why don’t we get given figure if someone is already doing research, huh?

    It appears that everyone has signed non disclosure agreements for some reason. I am meeting with the third party company soon to come up with a compromise though so wish me luck.

    The company is GFK, a very reputable international company.

    Quick update ๐Ÿ™‚

    Jason (^Megarom) has just confirmed with me that I am allowed to say that the 3rd party company is GFK (www.gfk.com/rt/) which is a worldwide leader in retail tracking.

    The actual figures are not disclosed as the retailers themselves are not happy allowing GFK to do this as they feel they may lose a competitive edge to other retailers.

    While I am not sure I agree with them it really is out of our (mine and the distributors) hands. I am meeting with GFK next week to try and come to an agreement on how I can publish statistically correct gaming charts which will not in anyway breach the non disclosures.

    Just wanted to clarify that ๐Ÿ˜›

    Firstly, I never questioned the validity of the 3rd party analysis group. I have quite a bit of respect for Megarom as an organisation, to be honest. All I ‘wondered’ was since this info is readily available, why not disclose it? Secondly, I doubt anybody wants to know what CNA sold or BT sold, etc, we’d just like to know “how many” of each have been sold, you know? Oh well. Speak to GFK nicely, will ya, Lazy? Thanks ๐Ÿ˜‰ .

    This should be backed with figures and numbers
