What’ll be the top-selling game this Christmas? This… maybe... It’s the only chart position that counts. Being number one at Christmas means everything. So which game will be top of the pops this festive season? My prediction is FIFA 08.

As I write, the bookies disagree, but only a bit. Ladbrokes and Paddy Power both have  Need For Speed: Pro Street as the favourite, followed by FIFA 08 then Halo 3. Only a fool would underestimate a new Need For Speed release, but I still reckon FIFA will pip it this year, even though it’s already sold in big numbers since its October release. Sony, Nintendo and Microsoft will sell just about as many consoles this Christmas as they can supply to retail, and I can see FIFA 08 being the most popular first purchase for all those new console owners. That’s my theory anyway. Agree? Disagree?  Have your say and we’ll check back in the new year to see who was right. Horganator out.
