Nielsen Wire surveyed 4800 male and female gamers aged between 7 and 64 to determine the most wanted PlayStation 3 games to close out 2012. Which games rounded out the top 10?

Most Wanted

Call Of Duty: Black Ops 2 November 13

99% Want It

What Thinks:

With sandbox levels, branching storylines and the additions of drones (and other 2025 tech), Black Ops 2 looks to revitalize the Call of Duty experience, at least in terms of single-player. The open missions are breaking ground for Treyarch, who is looking to lose COD’s “playing it safe” moniker.

Assassin's Creed 3 October 31

98% Want It

What Thinks:

From accidentally shooting an innocent civilian in the face to standing perched between two tree branches and being on a boat: Assassin’s Creed III is a fascinating world to explore during the American Revolution.

Resident Evil 6 Out Now

98% Want It

What Thinks:

Resident Evil 6's issues are indicative of a company trying perhaps a little too much to get back on its feet. For what it’s worth, Resident Evil 6 is a solid, high production value action game with enjoyable, engaging combat, great set pieces and an intricately told B-grade horror plot. However, it’s a mercilessly disjointed experience, hurt by incoherent pacing, an overbearing number of quicktime events and trivial button prompts that slow the experience considerably.

On The Radar

NBA 2K13 Out Now

87% Want It

What Thinks:

The gameplay has changed a little but the experience is just as enjoyable. Multiple great game modes, including an enhanced My Career mode and added NBA Legends teams, make this a worthy sports sim. With so much expectation around change for annual game releases, the 2K Sports team has certainly made an effort to implement successful changes, mixing up the experience while still remaining honest to a popular and acclaimed gameplay offering.

WWE '13 November 29

83% Want It

WWE ’13 is certain to ignite our enthusiastic, worldwide fan base and encourage them to live a revolution that simply cannot be ignored. WWE Live will bring the impassioned WWE live event experience into the living rooms of consumers, while critical core gameplay improvements and a serious dose of attitude will enable them to experience WWE action like never before.

Need For Speed: Most Wanted November 1

82% Want It

To be Most Wanted, you'll need to outrun the cops, outdrive your friends, and outsmart your rivals. With a relentless police force gunning to take you down, you'll need to make split second decisions. Use the open world to your advantage to find hiding spots, hit jumps and earn new vehicles to keep you one step ahead.

Hitman: Absolution November 20

80% Want It

What Thinks:

It really is a game of multiple simple touches. As you sneak up on one person or another, you’ll overhear conversations which (thankfully) are very well written and have voice actors who are able to offer a sentence which doesn’t make you cringe. The world really feels alive, which is vital for any game where you’re spending so much time slowly sneaking around and observing things.

Just For The Fans?

007 Legends October 1

76% Want It

What Thinks:

007 Legends needs to combine dusty old splitscreen with the current generation’s infatuation with e-friends. It needs a dedicated offline mode that’s just as good, if not better than the online counterpart. Furthermore, it must offer the best of both worlds with splitscreen online. That would be perfect for a Bond game, as long as it’s done well. It could even work in free-for-all, as a little bit of screen cheating is always implied in Bond games, as long as you’re never implicated with hard evidence of your cheatish ways.

Medal Of Honor: Warfighter October 25

74% Want It

What Thinks:

While Medal Of Honor didn’t quite set the world on fire in 2010, it at least offered something different from Battlefield 3, which was released a year later. They are two truly different multiplayer offerings, developed by two different teams with two different goals. A series like Call Of Duty doesn’t have this freedom, and while Treyarch and Infinity Ward have different ways of changing that experience up every second year, the core experience is still very much the same each year.

What The...?

LittleBigPlanet Karting Noember 6

67% Want It

Players continue Sackboy's journey after the events of the second game. The Story Mode will feature Sackboy racing against The Hoard, which plan to steal Craftworld's prizes for "no reason other than to hoard [hold] them." Players will begin story mode by hopping into a kart crashed by a member of The Hoard, and takes off after the devils to reclaim the stolen prizes.

It's the same list as the Xbox one, except for the last one 'LittleBigPlanet Karting'. Why bother?
