Nintendo absolutely dominated the top of GameStop E3 2021 pre-order list, with Switch owners rushing in droves to drop deposits for games like Metroid Dread and The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword HD. However, there were a few PlayStation 5 showcases during the event, and Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy performed best among physical buyers, climbing to number five on the US channel’s pre-order list for the past week. .
Far Cry 6 and Madden NFL 21 were also in the top ten, although the latter was technically revealed outside of the event. Dungeons & Dragons: Dark Alliance – released this week – has also come a long way. The existence of the Game Pass means that no Microsoft game was ranked in the top ten (Halo Infinite was in 11th position), despite the insinuation that the subscription service lift up game sales – there is certainly no evidence of this here.
Perhaps the most visible absent is Battlefield 2042, which comfortably had the biggest trailer in the series. It should be borne in mind that, given the source of the graphic, this only takes into account the physical pre-orders – and obviously the multiplayer tune-up of the first-person shooter developed by DICE means that it is guaranteed to attract great digital appeal. It was also technically announced ahead of E3 2021, so it’s possible that many pre-ordered it ahead of the event.
We’ve included GameStop’s top ten below, according to the organization’s press release. Clearly, it’s been a good week in terms of enthusiasm for physical copies of upcoming Nintendo titles.
