GamerMetrics has compiled the most anticipated games for the second half of 2007 according to online page visits in the US. Topping the list of prospective best sellers is Halo 3, followed by Madden NFL 08 and Grand Theft Auto IV.

Other games such as Guitar Hero III, Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Assassin's Creed, Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare, and Half-Life 2: The Orange Box are also expected to sell well according to the online interest and purchase intent of said games.

When comparing the lineups of the big three console makers, the report predicts Microsoft's Xbox 360 to have the "best available games" in the latter half of 2007 namely Halo 3, Grand Theft Auto IV, Mass Effect, BioShock, Too Human, and Two Worlds.

Wii and PS3 were both said to have flaws in their respective lineups given a lack of compelling games outside of 2-3 unique titles each according to the data.

Super Smash Bros. Brawl (Wii), The Legend Of Zelda: Phantom Hourglass (DS), Army of Two (PS3, 360), Need for Speed Pro Street (PS3, 360), Mercenaries 2 (PS3, 360), Medal of Honor: Airborne (PS3, 360, Wii), and Rock Band (PS3, 360, Wii) were also cited as prospective best sellers.
