‘Halo 4’ Beats Out ‘Black Ops 2’ as Most Anticipated Xbox 360 Title

When it comes to the PS3, ‘Black Ops’ is at the top, with ‘Madden 13’ trailing just behind.

A recent Nielsen poll revealed the most anticipated games for each of the major gaming consoles – PC games weren’t on the list for whatever reason – and there are a few interesting results. In the interviews of 4,823 gamers, it was revealed that ‘Halo 4’ is the most anticipated Xbox 360 game this holiday season, just barely beating out ‘Black Ops 2,’ which took the number one spot on PS3.

The lists are fairly similar for the two high-def systems, with PS3 fans favoring sports games a bit more. Number three on both lists, appropriately enough, was Assassin’s Creed III.’

The major football and basketball games appeared on the Xbox 360, PS3 and Wii lists, but the Wii, as you might imagine, had more games with the words “dance,” “princess,” and “party” in the title.
