Bookies Taking Bets On Xmas Number One

Tenner on Need For Speed please…

Posted by Staff
Paddy Power Bookmakers has just announced the odds for this Christmas’s number one videogame, with (yep, you guessed it) the latest Need For Speed coming in as odds-on favourite.

Need For Speed: Pro Street is closely followed by FIFA 08 at 2-1, Halo 3 at 6-1 and Pro Evolution Soccer 2008 at 10-1.

Also high up in the running is The Simpsons Game, Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, Super Mario Galaxy and Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock.

Manhunt 2 is down as 25-1. Pretty good going for a game which is increasingly looking like it won’t get a UK release till well into 2008.

If you fancy a punt yourself check out Paddypower’s website right now.

its a shame that amongst that Mario Galaxy & GH:III are not going to stand a chance against an EA IP for xmas i guess its brand power, and not Actual gameplay that counts for gift buying parents :(

Well its not that, dont forget when EA release a game they release it on every damn machine out on the planet, PC, PS2, PSP, PS3 & Xbox 360.

Whereas decent and much better games like Assasins Creed and Mass Effect dont even get a mention.

I hope Mass Effect gets a bafta award and game of the year.
