OTX Claims 'Halo: ODST' And 'Final Fantasy XIII' Are Gamers' Most Wanted

OTX is a newcomer to the games-data scene, attempting to join the ranks of NPD and EEDAR as an official source of video-game market data. The company claims that Halo: ODST and Final Fantasy XIII top the "purchase intent" list. In other words, those are the titles that gamers want most according to its methodology. Gamasutra explained OTX's techniques:

"In addition to aggregating data provided by partners including game rental firm GameFly and eBay data provider AERS, OTX has operated its own GamePlan Consumer Tracker since October 2008, collecting data on 600 games from a pool of 25,000 gamers. That information is gathered byOTX's 'multi-source sampling' method, which polls players in the United States across hundreds of online panels." 

I'm curious to see how OTX changes the data game. It's always good to have competition and a different point of view. That said, it could have given 20 enthusiast gamers $5 to come to the conclusion that a Final Fantasy game and a Halo game were the titles gamers wanted most. It's not like this proclamation was all that impressive. Hopefully OTX brings some interesting findings to the table soon.

Out of curiosity, what's the top of your "purchase intent" list at the moment? Final Fantasy XIII is too far away, so I'm going to go with Brutal Legend. How about you?
