Irish bookmaker Paddy Power is offering a proposition bet on what will be the United Kingdom's top-selling game, giving Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 most-favored billing at 11/8 odds.


Other contenders include Assassin's Creed at 7/2 and FIFA 10 at 4/1. Core-gamer darlings such as Tekken 6, Brütal Legend and Left 4 Dead 2 all can't do better than 40/1. Grand Turismo is 25/1 and ODST is 12/1. Sadly, Demon Tits is not listed. And in oddsmaking that plainly defines "sucker bet," Metroid: Other M, Super Mario Galaxy 2 and Alpha Protocol are all offered for wagers; none will be out before the week of Dec. 19, when Paddy will consult data at and declare a winner.
