Current Halo 3 Sales Figures

Halo 3 Sales Figures

 

In even more Halo 3 related news, initial sales for Master Chief’s latest incarnation are coming in, and the Xbox 360 exclusive title has sold through 1.8 million copies during the first 8 hours of release. The break down is 1.5 million sold through pre-orders, with an additional 300,000 copies sold without pre-order.Estimations predict that a total of 950,000 units will be sold within the first 24 hours, bringing the grand total to 2.45 million. Microsoft has released the game in three SKUs ranging in price from 59.99 to 129.99, and the average sale price of the title is currently at $78.00. This means that, Microsoft has already made an estimated 140.4 million dollars and is expected to cash-in on 191.1 million dollars before the end of the day. This would put Halo 3 at the top of the list for any form of entertainment’s top “one day sales”.

Bungie and Bill Gates will be rolling on a bed strewn with money laughing maniacally and kissing one another profusely before the week is finished. Can’t you feel the love?

There will be another $75 added to that soon. I have to get my copy. Many stores around town were open at midnight. For many this midnight madness is like santa claus for adults. They get excited to get this game early and anticipate the excitment of it. Theres not alot of things that can bring this excitment to an adult.

So i can understand the excitment for people wanting to get this early. Myself i pre-orderd at Bestbuy and the managment being lame didnt have a midnight sale. Howerver EBgames and Futureshop did. Today after work i hope to purchase and be playing this wonderful game.

I really should be at home playing my copy… but alas… I’m at work =(

So far it seems to be everything I expected & more =D

Well Wal-Mart had copies and we got there about 11:30 and by 12:15 we were on our way home to play the game. It seems like an awsome ending to an awsome game. The new Gravity hammer is cool and the Graphics can’t be beat. There are several new items and different types of weapons. You can even ripe of the turrets and walk around with them. I think this is the best product Microsoft has ever put their name on. Bungie has set the bar high for all the Next Generation 360 games. Last night before we got online 11K people were playing. This morning. 86K players online. HALO 3 ROCKS

Halo 3 is overrated and not worth the BS hype… its fun, but not the “game of the year”.. though it might be rated “game of the year” that is only because of the hype…. it is only a sad ported halo 2 with slightly better graphics. unreal tournament might not sell as well, but it will be a much better game. see halo is for the masses, the casual FPS player, not the die hard FPS player.

Ported Halo 2? That doesn’t even make any sense.

The only things they’ve kept are the style and the content, most of which they’ve either tweaked or added to. Besides, for most people, it’s the story that is selling this game.

This is one of the best games ever and it lives up to the hype. I myself am a huge fan of Unreal Tournament, but Halo has been a game I can share with my friends. It’s not just me on my PC playing by myself. I can’t expect my friends to buy PC’s to play 1 game. With Halo it has always been different. In a way its a party game. It’s just you and your friends hanging out playing some Halo. It’s not some lame gaming experience where its just you. And guess what if you like it just being you, you can do that too!

Anyway, Unreal Tournament is just a multiplayer. Halo3 has a campaign mode(with a story) too, which has a 4 player online co-op. Once you are done with that you can go online with your friends and own each other or other people.

So does Halo3 deserve the success and the hype? Hell yeah it does. It’s fun as hell, that’s the point of games, to have fun. Don’t get me wrong with no doubt Unreal Tournament 3 will be fun, but like hell I’m going to play it on a console. Halo3 brings the FPS experience to the console like no other game. You can’t say Bioshock(I love that game) and Metroid Prime 3 brings it cuz they lack a multiplayer, which gives it a lower replay value than Halo3. The only possible competitor is Killzone which sucked. Gears of War kept my 360 busy till now, but even then you can’t compare the multiplayers, plus Gears of War is 3rd person.

I honestly don’t care if people think its an updated Halo2. Without a doubt the graphics look alot better. The maps are bigger and/or better and the new weapons and weapons balance adds an improvement to an already amazing game. The new vehicles only add depth to the combat giving you more options to work with.

Basically Halo3 pwns! BTW the reason this post is so long its cuz I’m in class and I’m bored and I can’t wait to get home to play Halo3 =D

Plus its gotten to the point where playing Halo isn’t lame. If I’m at home and I tell my girlfriend I’m playing Rainbow Six, she’ll be like thats lame. While if I tell her I’m playing Halo, its ok! It’s not just me too. Its like this game has been embraced by pop culture. It’s become cool to play Halo.

Point being buy the game so Bill Gates can get richer, then he can donate the money to charity later on.

I absolutly agree with Joelteon7 on this one. Although Microsoft did go a bit overboard with the marketing stragedy, they pulled out the stops making this game. I’ve been a fan since Halo, andhad even stopped playing Halo 2 online just because after a while, every game will get tired… but Halo 3 is nothing short of amazing , and a far cry from just another Halo 2. Aside from the storyline itself, and the general concept… thiss games contents far-surpasss its predecessors…

Also its not “more then a game”. Its a normal FPS just like all the others except it actually has a story unlike most.

:mrgreen: This is one of the best games ever. Halo 3!!! WOW…it is that good.

xx-Thor-xx

On September 25, 2007 at 3:39 pm

agreed perpy12. its a normal fps and a solid fun game. the one thing that i give halo props for is co-op play, used to be the one thing that every game had back in the glory days of SNES now hardly anything has it at all, co-op play imo is a lot more fun than only having death match style multi-player.

On September 25, 2007 at 4:46 pm

Halo and Halo 2 is to Xbox what Big Mack is to McDonald’s. Halo 3 is to Xbox 360 what Whopper is to Burgerking. Im just gonna lay-low in tha cut :cool: all cool like, till I get off work, then im gonna get my copy. Ill be a Halo-Junky tonight.

Lucas

On September 25, 2007 at 5:23 pm

Digunderground, point me to rock solid proof that the Halo 3 is a port of Halo 2 and show me how the graphics are only slightly better. The graphics are much better. If the game is not fun for you, I DON’T CARE! It is very fun for other people and that gives you no freaking right to take wise cracks at us!

slip180

On September 25, 2007 at 5:43 pm

Who cares what they think, you like it, you love it, you hate it, you think that the best place for it is in your 360, or you think that the best place for it is burning in a trash can, you gives a crap we are in a group of gamers and that is all that should matter, everybody is going to have something a little different to say, so be it. Let them say it and there we go. oh btw HALO 3 ROCKS

This game looks gorgeous in 1080p. Best multiplayer experience ever. Familiar layout, new weapons and tactics. Three freakin’ cheers for Bungie.

Mike

On September 25, 2007 at 7:38 pm

All the people who hate halo 3 are PS3 owners who are all butt hurt because they have no action adventure game to look forward to except maybe GTA which quite frankly is running out of steam and doesnt make a fun game to entertain oneself or one’s guests.

I don’t own a PS3, WII, or 360. All I know is after watching my friend play halo 3 I know exactly what my next paycheck is going towards. And Oblivion is awsome too :smile:

whiney es like digunderground are just pissed off because they got tricked into paying $600 for a so called video game console(PS3). instead they just got a bluray player. only thing the PS3 does well is play movies

john

On September 26, 2007 at 4:11 am

Halo IS over rated!! It’s an unreal tournament rip-off. A joke!! There is nothing ground breaking in it, and it’s a FPS for crying outloud. E story, average graphics (it looks more like a cartoon) that dont look lifelike, lighting. All u fools have just fallen into the go-USA propaganda!! What has Halo added to the gaming world?? Nothing besides boost sales of a e console which should not even be on the shelves with it’s over 30% failure rate.

Dave

On September 26, 2007 at 4:42 am

Jimmer is correct, digunderground and now John another PS3 no gamer who posts here
I just don’t understand why PS3 owners bother posting on 360 news sections with their negative rubbish, do they think its going to put people off buying 360s or these great AAA titles which the 360 has constantly coming out and the PS3 has NOT?.
You chose your PS3 it was your choice so go moan at the makers or something its dropped 40% sales in the USA since last week and Heavenly sword the so called big game could only manage to sell 70,000 copies in the first week in the USA for a so called AAA release it has flopped terribly as did Lair so what next oh another year to wait for stale old games like MGS4 and Final Fantasy 5,000 (or whatever number its on now since its PS1 release) and what if MGS4 doesent live up up its hype(and you are going to have to buy new Dual shock PS3 controllers to play it properly) what then? (I found MGS pretty boring anyway)……………Still if it is good I suppose we could all go post and say how bad it is etc etc then again the 360 has all the good games so you should be allowed the odd One or Two on your PS3….. Anyway Im off to play Halo 3 on my Super cool and super priced Xbox 360 ELITE…..

Oh and JOHN you want to mention failure rate ?, you forget Two things the PS2 which is still in production had the DVD drive of death failure rate and 5 million were replaced but it still won the console war, and secondly MS have given EVERYONE a 3 year guarantee (Not just One year like Sony) so go try somewhere else cos no one cares about your jealousy here….

green

On September 26, 2007 at 6:49 am

i have always been a risk taker when it comes to buying consoles, and anyone who bought the original xbox definately took a risk.But after playing the original halo i have never looked back.Now thats the attachment rate that people are talking about.

Ps3 owners talk about the unreliability of the 360.Well mine was the 1st batch and its still running thus unfortunately some people havent been so lucky.But on my ps1 the console crashed and i had to replace it 3 times and each subsequent machine after 4 months stopped loading properly unless it was tilted side ways.yet it was the best selling.

You all should grow up and look at life in general and other consumer electronics and you will find out that usually the leaders in most sectors are not necessarily the most reliable but what makes them the best is the excellent ownership experience.And the is no denying the fact that the ownership experience gotten from owning a 360 is incredible and you have to admire a company that owns up to its mistakes and puts all its resources in fixing the problem inorder to make the consumer happy.

I like my 360 but if you sad ps3 cant leave with the decisions you made then go to sony and complian about it to them.Instead of trying to affect people with your bad taste and misguided coments.Sony have lost the plot this time around and until they discover the drive they had in the 90s i am not going back.HALO,BIOSHOCK,PROJECT GOTHAM,GEARS OF WAR,FORZA,MASS EFFECT to name a few are just to good for me to look else were.

And as for nintendo.I love the wii but if good games that cater for more serious gamers dont start dropping soon their massive sales will surely decline.

Halo 3 is a fine game indeed.

If you must reply please make it coherent.

PRO: It has a story, not the most original or complex plot but it has one nonetheless and is suitably palatable by the audience the game appeals to.

CON: The characters (particularly the enemies) still look like extras from a Disney cartoon.

PRO: It is intuitive to play yet demands mastery.

CON: There is nothing revolutionary about the game engine. It feels very similar to it’s previous incarnations which is not -entirely- a bad thing as they’re obviously building on previous success, but implementing new play systems (for example the same way the cover system was revolutionary ala GoW or R6 Vegas) would’ve added some e and given H3 more kudos.

PRO: The weapons are varied and interesting.

CON: The graphics are much better than the previous titles but they’re still not on par with other 360 games. While graphics aren’t everything Microsoft sure put in the hardware to deal out whiz-bang graphics so it seems a waste that their flagship game doesn’t use it to the fullest. COD4 looks to address this…

PRO: Vehicles!

PRO: The soundtrack is another superb pseudo-classical symphony.

PRO: I count more PRO’s than CON’s which makes HALO 3 worth owning.

cheers

Personally, I’m not that excited about Halo 3. That’s not all that surprising, since I’ve never been a fan of the series. I’m not going to take a shot at 360 owners (I have one) or PS3 owners (got that too). I will however say this: If not for the XBox 360, there would be no Halo 3.

The reason that so many die hard FPS players from PC aren’t into Halo is that it’s a dated FPS. Is it great on the 360? Absolutely. I hate to admit it, but MS actually made a good call by not putting the game on PC at the same time as 360. On PC, Halo is a mediocre, tired, dated shooter. There are just so many other shooters out there on PC that are prettier, have better gameplay, and can easily match the multiplayer experience. This is not the case on the 360.

Not only this, but the so-called ‘cross-platform’ multiplayer is non-existent, mostly because PC gamers won’t pay for the “privilege” of playing against console gamers.

Again, Halo 3 is not a bad game for what it is. Just don’t make it out to be more than it is.

Sorry Sony

On September 26, 2007 at 11:48 am

All I can say is “WOW!” This is the best video game I have ever played on any platform. I own the PS3 and the 360 and have to say the 360 is the one to have. I am very disappointed with Sony’s lack luster attempt at next generation gaming. They drooped the ball this time. I plan on selling my PS3 on ebay because I never play it. Buy a 360! Buy HALO 3! dont waste your money on a PS3.

Jon

On September 26, 2007 at 11:54 am

The graphics may not have the gritty and knock out beauty of Gears of War, but Halo 3 is still among the sharpest games I’ve seen. The high-res textures, extreme particle effects, and use of both HDR and subtle light refections off metal, armor, and water make this game shine in a subtle way. I must say I am very impressed with the graphics.

Twistoffate

On September 26, 2007 at 11:57 am

Wow this game didnt set any sales record … maybe for 360. but not for pc. And to prove it i did look this up. World of warcraft BC which came out this year sold 5million copies first day at a price of 69.99$ or 129$ for the boxset. I really dont feel like do that math but i know it kills the sales. And yes i playd halo3 personaly i think its ok, doesnt live up to its hype but its still fun as hell to play. And sony fanboys that read this ur stupid … i bought a wii then lookd i was going to get the ps3 i really rethought that after all the games got pushd back. and yes i did buy a 360 it was a really worth it. i have to of the best systems out and happy about it

Sleepy

On September 26, 2007 at 12:53 pm

Wow!

I have been playing video games since the late 70′s. I have never anticipated any video game as much as I have anticipated this one. This game rocks! I’m getting used to some of the new controls, but I still have not got used to the amount of information they have placed on my HD screen. I catch myself forgetting about being shot by the covenant forces due to the fact that the screen is absolutely beautiful. My wife actually sat down and actually commented on how the game looked?!

There may be a basher or two on this site, due to eating paint chips as a child I think, but this game is sooo worth the $75. Nintendo Wii and the new Metroid you are next!!

jimmer

On September 26, 2007 at 6:48 pm

wrong, warcraft bc did not sell 5 million copies opening day. it sold 2.7 mill. don’t know how many copies halo 3 sold but they had 1.7 mill in preorders alone, so it will be up there. money wise, halo 3 set the record for biggest opening day in entertainment history with $170 million in sales in 24hours

poor sony :mrgreen:

jimmer

On September 26, 2007 at 6:53 pm

also, thats just the halo sales figures for the u.s alone
the 2.7 mill that warcraft b.c. sold was a worldwide sales figure

On September 26, 2007 at 9:12 pm

Just to clear it up:

Halo 3 did not have the largest/quickest selling in the history of gaming. True
Halo 3 DID have the largest/quickest selling in the history of CONSOLE GAMING and FPS GAMING. Also true.

RedVs.Blue

On September 26, 2007 at 9:15 pm

I just have one question. Why the f**k do you retards have PS3s and XBox360s? Jesus christ! You’re either too old to play games or you’re f**king spoiled!! :neutral: It sucks not being old enough to get a job and too young to bum money off your parents.

On September 26, 2007 at 9:21 pm

One last part of my rant.
I quote from saf “There is nothing revolutionary about the game engine. It feels very similar to it’s previous incarnations which is not -entirely- a bad thing as they’re obviously building on previous success, but implementing new play systems (for example the same way the cover system was revolutionary ala GoW or R6 Vegas) would’ve added some e and given H3 more kudos.”
The thing about the game engine is that they cant change it all that much without pissing off fans for ruining the feel of the game. I already know many people who are pissed that reload is RB and LB. If they were to make it GoW style or R6 Vegas, it would tear away some aspects of the game. GoW shouldn’t even count because it’s not a true FPS, its a 3rd person game.

Note: if anything I type doesn’t make sense, it’s probably cause I’m tired. Did alot today, faked sick, beat campaign, and found away to get internet to my basement so i can get XBox Live.

jimmer

On September 27, 2007 at 12:39 am

look it up noob, or better yet just google it. hundreds of articles saying that halo 3 set the record for biggest opening day sales in entertainment history. that includes all types of gaming as well as movies. runner up was spiderman 3 with around 150 mil for opening weekend. and that was just U.S sales figures, wait till you get the world wide figures. if halo3 did not break the record as you say RedvsBlue then what game did… funny how u failed to mention that in your post, idiot

:lol: Can you beleive that this is the only game I play. I have bought alot of games but Halo was my 1st. It set the bar so high that I don’t enjoy any thing else. My wife sits besides me watches me play for hours(making coffee for us as well). I’m very pleased with Halo3.

drunk munky

On September 28, 2007 at 7:38 am

An amazing game.

Campaign was a bit short but then I am sure Bungie wanted this game to be played for many years to come so they designed a perfect on line game.

MindParadox

On September 28, 2007 at 1:21 pm

HAlo 3 isnt actually a grounbreaking game, those of you are right, however
the Halo series DID bring regenerating permanent shields to the FPS market, something which hasnt been done before to my knowledge(i started with FPS’s back with Castle Wolfenstein 3d, and Castle Gate, in the 80s)
dual wield ability, which is more a bungie thing, since Marathon had that(altho, there are rumors that Marathon is basically the forerunner to Halo)

however, for something that EVERYONE can enjoy, (my girlfriend who hates first person shooters recently loaded up my Halo:Combat Evolved for the PC and fell in love) Halo 3 is certainly a satisfying game to play

hopefully, altho this is the end of the primary storyline, Bungie will decide to put out Expansions and/or alternate storyline games to this

and for one of you(cant remember who it is) seriously, Halo is a bad copy of Unreal tournament? PLEASE play halo, enjoy the speed and the not having to hope to god that no one shoots you(pretty much every shot in Unreal Tournament is a kill shot) and the ability of not havin to search for health in the campa- oh, wait, UT doesnt HAVE a campaign, sorry

Which FPS (NOT simply a First Person Online Arena game) were you comparing Halo to again?

back to playing H3 :)

saf

On September 28, 2007 at 1:25 pm

What a game, I went out yesterday and brought a 360 Elite(what a bargain the Elite is with all that power) and Halo 3 after seeing this game at a friends house, will be game of the year…

Agent 88

On September 29, 2007 at 4:35 pm

I am looking for an reason to buy an Xbox 360, so when Halo 3 came out I went to my friends house to play it, yeah it looks better than H2 but it still looks like a kids game. Silly character design is not attractive to me. It needs to have more adult content. It shipped 1.7 million copies and even if everyone buys them, 1.5 million sold are under the age of 17. GoW did look much better than Halo does now but i still am buying a system that its big games are FPS. I am also afraid of the failing HDDVD format of the Xbox. As far as Halo 3 goes, It needs to grow up a bit.

On September 30, 2007 at 4:28 am

The Elite is exactly as powerful as the core system which costs nearly half the price.

On September 30, 2007 at 5:45 pm

i got the legendary H3, i think that it is by far the best game out there, though i still have a habbit of trying to BxR. The wepons are to strong in this game, like i can shoot 6 shots with an AR and beat down a guy. need helping getting 30+ in everything… half way there…. add me

bill gates won’t be rolling laughing in money, because overall the xbox360 has lost money..

BiA SIERRA 117

On October 2, 2007 at 2:06 am

360 has lost money? My only thought on how you came to that conclusion is because of the problems with the red ring of death with earlier consoles. I’ll admit that warranty repairs could be costly but I don’t believe they could out way the huge sales of both the console and the imense library of games available. However, microsoft has recitified the situation and offered a 3 year warranty for this issue. And THAT is the mark of a good company, when you can admit your mistakes AND offer a solution to the problem. That is why I believe that microsoft is going to win this generation of console wars. That and they have Halo 3.

BiA SIERRA 117

On October 2, 2007 at 2:12 am

Sorry if I sounded like a microsoft employee. I’m really not. I do own a 360 Elite and love Halo 3. I have also play tons of other FPS on other consoles Like Resistance on PS3 and Metroid on Wii (at friends homes) and while these are both good games I think that Halo 3 will simply outlast them. Look at Halo 2 stats on bungie.net. It is the most played game on xbox live and hase logged almost a billion hours of online play. I don’t think any other FPS can claim 1 billion hours of play over 3 years time. I could be wrong.

BiA SIERRA 117

On October 2, 2007 at 2:15 am

And BiA SIERRA 117 was my gamertag before Halo 3 came out. I didn’t make it based on the first level of Halo 3.

Rohan

On October 2, 2007 at 8:58 am

Halo 3 is an excellent game. Its just like halo 2 except they fixed all the little problems making halo 3 close to perfect. It has all that you could want: Co-op, nice campaign, online play, and one on one multiplayer. What is wrong with halo 3? I cant find ANYTHING. 9.5/10

Ed

On October 2, 2007 at 11:46 am

How is it 1 day of sales?
Pre-orders have been taken for weeks if not longer. Its like ordering something and not getting it shipped for 2 weeks.

1 day sales look like 950k units if they said that is what it would be in 24 hours making its 1 day sales number $74,100,000. I don’t know if that is record breaking.

Jimmer

On October 2, 2007 at 4:17 pm

pre-orders count because these are people who would have bought it on the first day anyway. its just smarter and easier, like not having to stand in line like those people who did not pre-order

M3RC31F

On October 3, 2007 at 3:10 pm

So basically the same arguments are being used as in the first Xbox vs. PS2 debates. My friend and I looked forward to Xbox (original) 3 years before it came out. I was in elementary school then and began to save my money up for it. PS2 owners used the excuse that it had more games back then, and some of them were dumb enough to say it had better graphics. What all Playstation owners fail to realize is Sony’s lack of support (how many times has Gates donated them $ to stay alive? haha), and the fact that they’re LOSING GAMES. Rockstar ONLY made GTA for Playstation because they had to. They’ve been quoted saying they want graphic improvements for an xbox game… Game publishers will continue to drop Sony and pick up a MUCH MORE reliable Microsoft.

How many tourniments sprung up after Halo 1′s release? More than any of us could count. I have to say I used to be a HUGE Counter Strike player on PC – and it still comes in 2nd imo. But Halo 1, 2, and 3 has vehicle support, a storyline/campaign, co-op campaign, unbeatable multiplayer, amazing support staff via Bungie.net, database support, and Microsoft…

By the way, it wasn’t entirely Microsoft/Bungie that hyped up Halo 3 – have you failed to notice that it was the RETAIL STORES. They knew it was going to be huge – so everyone wanted to let the consumers know that THEY had it ready, “Come by Halo here” sorta thing. I saw a lot less commercials stemming from Microsoft/Bungie than I did for Halo 2 – what I saw was online adds for purchasing the game. Let Ps3 have their 50 dollar movies and 600 dollar movie player – I bought 360 (same day as halo 3) because I wanted a video game console.

M3RC31F firstly how many big exclusives are out over the next year on the 360?

On the PS3 you have Killzone 2, LittleBigPlanet, Final Fantasy 13, Gran Turismo 5, Metal Gear Solid 4, Tekken 6, Uncharted, Haze, Infamous, Jak & Daxter, Ratchet & Clank, LA Noir and Time Crisis 4 all exclusively on the PS3 not exclusive like the 360 ‘exclusives’ that are released on the PC as well and therefore not exclusive. If you bought the 360 to play games you bought the wrong console for 2008 (and probably every year after).

Secondly I find it interesting how you and your friend looked forward to the Xbox and saved up for it for 3 years before it came out when it was officially confirmed in 2000 and released the year later. Nice story but its bollocks (just like your story that you bought the 360 the day Halo3 was released) :lol:

On October 3, 2007 at 4:59 pm

wow that guy M3RC31F sounds exactly like a brain-washed,those words:”I bought 360 because I wanted a video game console” I heard that from one of the guys from Microsoft in an interview.well I can tell you the PS3 is way much more than a video game console for a very reasonable price.And about exclusives, in its second year what “good” exclusives 360 has, GOW,Halo3 and Bioshock? ooook,here I go with the PS3 exclusives for its second year: MGS4, Killzone2, Granturismo5(that makes Forza look like last-gen), Resistance:Fall of Chimera,FFXIII, Home(it’s not a game but it looks like a lot of fun), Little Big Planet, Motorstorm 2, Jak ANd Dexter, and those coming out before 2008: Haze, Uncharted:Drake’s Fortune, Ratchet & Clank, Heavenly sword(already out and very good),Warhawk(already out and awesome) and the list goes on…!! see? well, to finish this…there’s no need to buy a 360 when I can play Bioshock, Halo, and GOW in my computer, and my computer won’t get a Red Ring Of Death after a year and a half!!

On October 3, 2007 at 5:06 pm

“..and that list of PS3 games you just made is bollocks”

I repeat:

Killzone 2, LittleBigPlanet, Final Fantasy 13, Gran Turismo 5, Metal Gear Solid 4, Tekken 6, Uncharted, Haze, Infamous, Jak & Daxter, Ratchet & Clank, LA Noir and Time Crisis 4

Just Gran Turismo, Final Fantasy, Metal Gear and Tekken have all sold more units individually than the biggest game franchise on the 360 (Halo). Those 4 games are all above Halo in the top 50 franchises of all time. Gran Turismo sells an average of 13m units per episode.

Hardly bollocks. It’s an incredible lineup.

BTW PC gamers (like myself) don’t need to use the 360 because most of its games are either on the PC already or soon will be.

It was quite telling how you ignored my question of “how many big exclusives are out over the next year on the 360?”

I’ve just had a look myself and it would appear that these are the only games lined up for exclusive release on the 360 next year:

Banjo-Kazooie 3, Dark Messiah of Might & Magic: Elements, Demons of Mercy, Kingdom Under Fire: Circle of Doom, Too Human and Ninja Gaiden 2.

WOW! Loads of system sellers there :lol:

Alienbreed, you are an idiot. I assume you want first days sales so you can come back with Halo 3 which in your deluded mind will somehow make up for no games of any note being released next year for the 360.

Banjo-Kazooie 3, Dark Messiah of Might & Magic: Elements, Demons of Mercy, Kingdom Under Fire: Circle of Doom, Too Human and Ninja Gaiden 2.

Read it and weep for that is your exclusive lineup for the future of the 360 dip.

On October 3, 2007 at 6:09 pm

Incidentally I do have some total sales figures for Final Fantasy games on the PlayStation consoles:

Final Fantasy VII 9.8m
Final Fantasy VIII 6m
Final Fantasy X 5m
Final Fantasy XII 3.7m
Final Fantasy X-2 3m

Which means the average sales of a Final Fantasy game on the PlayStation is 5.5m

BTW only 4 games have ever sold more than 2.5m on an Xbox console. 3 of those contain the word Halo in the title. The really should change it’s name to the Hbox :lol:

PS3 is not selling enough consoles. I expect more exclusive PS3 games to appear on 360. This is not the PS2 days anymore, where PS2 had a huge lead over Xbox1. right now PS3 is in last place and game companies are gonna want to make as much money as possible. especially since making a game for the PS3 cost so much more money and harder to program. Games like MGS4 and FF eventually will appear on 360 :lol: :lol: :lol:

Jimmer

On October 4, 2007 at 11:11 am

also, how about actually getting a killer app game before you start bragging.
right now the ps3 does not have an exclusive killer app game.
At least Halo3 lived up to the hype. what happened to the much hyped PS3 games like warhawk and motorstorm? most review sites have them in the 80′s or 8/10. don’t get me wrong they are good games but not great like Halo3. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Xboxlenny

On October 4, 2007 at 11:17 am

Gotta love them stats. I dono why people waste so much time trying to prove how good the PS3 is? it is a powerful system, Game developers do need more consoles sold to make more games a hit. of course it will take time to get up there, But Xbox 360′s Xbox live is worth it alone.

Im not gonna give stats or figures on what games sell or out soon etc…. All i know is that my Xbox 360 does more than meet the needs for fun and entertainment. I love Xbox live, All the great games now, not 6 months from now like the Delaystation 3. I am about the games, If Sony someday catches up i probaly will get a PS3, for now the games are delayed and i dont see a single game i must have now. Maby down the road if the 40GB model is out, Right now in my oppinion the PS3 dont do a thing for me.

And dont any PS3 fanboys flame me over this, I am giving my oppinion, Xbox 360 for me is the way to go.

@ Xboxlenny

Whaaaaat????!!!! are you sreious??!! you would buy a 40gig console?? see?? you people don’t think about the future, only cheap things, I have a 60gig PS3 and 18gig free and I bought it like 7 months ago, I have tons of music,videos,demos and 4 downloaded games. that shows just how retarded you are.No doubt you picked Xbox over PS3 dude! always think about the future too.

the_truth

On October 5, 2007 at 7:31 am

the 60gig is alreary at $500 wich makes the new 360 Elite look expensive considering that it doesn’t include the HDDVD, and the 80gig is at $600 with the Motorstorm game(awesome game with very cheap downloaded content).Think about that.

Jimmer

On October 5, 2007 at 5:38 pm

try chewing on this the_truth

First 12 months of xbox 360 it had 9 A games (9.0+ on IGN). PS3 has 4, and one of them just came out (Folklore, not saying its a bad game, just that it was at 3 untill very recently).And with that one of the 4 was already available on the 360, which is oblivion. Now for B games, 360 has 39 (counting VC), and ps3 has 24 (counting downloadable). Again, this is in the first 12 months. So unless PS3 comes out with 5 more A games, and 15 B games by nov 17th, xbox has done better then PS3.

KiddX

On October 5, 2007 at 8:03 pm

The only reason the ps3 guys are here is because they have nothing to do with their ps3′s.

I was kind of on the fence with Halo3, I barely played Halo2 (mostly due to time restraints), but Im pretty happy with it, and Im happy that even though i didnt pre-order I was able to walk into a local retailer and pick up a copy on release day. Good job there on getting the sales channel filled.

I dont know how many 360′s are out there vs. how many Halo3s are sold but I hope it goes to show other companies, that a good quality game makes good money and inspires other companies to make more. Any single game that can get 50% penetration in a market would have to consider it a success, and something like Halo thats in the 80s or whatever (Im just guessing) would have to be nothing short of amazing.

As far as cartoonish graphics and gameplay, I think they did the right thing. PG / G rated movies often rank much higher than R simply because of the penetration. I dont mind my son playing Halo3 because it is so un-realistic unlike Gears of War, which I like, but the blood, guns,language make it too harsh for someone younger.

the_truth

On October 6, 2007 at 7:34 am

oooh pllleease! mention those 9 games. please!?mention those 9 “blockbuster” games.As for Halo, come on the only thing that makes Halo big is the marketing, i’ve played Halo before and didn’t make me want to buy a 360,and just read the reviews after the game was out,it is not that grate. Gears Of War..I might get it on november for my PC even Bioshock.No need for a 360. :grin: :grin: :lol: :lol:

On October 23, 2007 at 9:05 am

There’s no better overall console so there’s no point in arguing. They each have their advantages in different areas so there’s no point in comparing apples and oranges.

I’d buy a PS3 is they weren’t so expensive. The only gripe I’ve ever had with Sony equipment is the teensy little controller is too small for my hands. This is probably the initial reason I swayed towards the chunky Microsoft controller ergo began following the xbox troupe.

Halo 3 is a great game. It’s not the be all end all to be compared to every other game genre on every single platform. Involving yourself in such an argument is like chopping off your nose to spite your face.

Also, the other saf’s comments weren’t from me. It must be an admirer. :lol:

I work in the video game industry for a retailer and i dont really see what support sony has in the future. Yeah you talk about exclusive games, but it comes down to consoles. If you make an “A” game on a console that has only sold a few units, you will only sell that many of the game. Yeah it will increase console sales, but that is a waiting game developers dont like to play. That is why a lot of exclusive sony games arent exclusive anymore. Also, if what we are hearing is true, a lot of the exclusive games you named for next year wont be exclusive. Their third party support is down, their sales are down. Even my boss, a staunch sony fan, thinks the future will be bleak. developers cant afford to make ps3 games.

Its nice and shiny you can use it instead of your mirror, yeah thats a good idea now why dont all of you go back were you came from and talk about the reflection you see in your ps3.

hehe kids! :roll: , yeah I sit here playing Eye Of Judgment, Warhawk(addictive), Heavenly Sword(hard mode), Resistance(very addictive online multi-player, and it had the same scores as Halo 3 back then!) I still play Rainbow Six and Motorstorm sometimes,(not counting the ones I don’t play that much) I want to get Ratchet & Clank and Guitar Hero III but I have other games in mind first like Call Of Duty 4, Haze, and Uncharted:Drake’s Fortune this month, others to follow in December. and yeah..shiny is sexy! “Black Beauty’ my wife calls the PS3. Awesome!! and I’d rather look at my console thinking how shiny and pretty it is than thinking if the Red Ring Of Death will come ( a very sad situation for anyone who owns a 360). so, yeah..there’s more than the up-coming 2008 games.

@Andrew says: Perhaps instead of wasting all your money on blue ray, you could go rent a in dvd. NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO I NEEEEEEEEEEEED THE HARDLY NOTICABLE GRAPHICAL UPDATE THAT THE PS3 HAS FOR HUNDREDS OF DALLORS MORE.

well my console is also a Blu-Ray player (you would love to say this too, believe me) and my wife and I love watching movies and it does look better than the regular DVDs, we just got “Spiderman The Trilogy” and “The Hills Have Eyes 2 Unrated” on Blu-Ray last Saturday, We wouldn’t buy them if We could not afford them but we can, and like I said before, we love movies! and it’s not that I “NEEEEEEEEEEEED THE HARDLY NOTICABLE GRAPHICAL UPDATE THAT THE PS3 HAS FOR HUNDREDS OF DALLORS MORE”. I WANT IT !!!!!! and I get what I want as long as I can afford it!

lol..poor little tomasz, I bought Call Of Duty 4 last week, I’m picking up Assassin’s Creed tomorrow and Uncharted:Drake’s Fortune next week, and yes I’ve had lots of problems with my wife because I’m always playing too, but she just can’t deny the fact that the PS3 is just a very sexy and advanced machine(something your wife has never said about your ugly box, I can assure you that) so as you can see I also spend lots of money on games. AND..you can’t spend any dime on Blu-Ray because….YOU DON’T HAVE A BLU-RAY PLAYER!! NOT EVEN AN HD-DVD PLAYER (wich you would have to buy for $200 in order to watch movies on your Xbox)..and btw, can you play online using a Wi-fi connection??oh yes you can, for another $100!! dude your box sucks my PS3 balls really good man!!

On November 14, 2007 at 5:36 am

just look at the sales figures and weep just goes to show you what console people prefer and as goes for COD 4 lets see you try and play that online and not get your connection knocked off every 2 minutes I know cuase i tried it and this game was created for on-line play in the first place and last but not least i wouldnt be surprised if you did not have any console at all and are just a kid who wishes that he gets one for christmas but for now all you can do is wright rubbush on the net about it

the_truth

On November 14, 2007 at 5:53 pm

LOL OMFG DUDE!! if that is happening to you, you got a ed up connection man, it rarely happened to me but not “every 2 minutes” like you said. it was fixed last week like at 3 am and the problem was that there was too many people playing the game and caused some connection delays, but like I said it’s already fixed, and as for the sales, plleeesaaase! the box was out one year before the PS3 wich is why it has sold more but when you compare year by year both consoles the are the same(http://www.ps3fanboy.com/2007/10/19/ps3-sales-on-par-with-360-launches-aligned/4#comments) and that’s counting the 360 consoles people bought twice because of the malfunctions and one more thing, you know the marketing Microsoft makes to sale that thing right?? you see an Xbox logo everywhere you go even on movies, that’s crazy!! and that’s called fear!!!because the console can not sale by itself!! so..even with all that marketing they do, they still didn’t sale more than the PS3 the first year, they sold the same. now people is starting to know what the PS3 offers and the sales are coming up really fast thanks, all you hear about the PS3 on the web and the news is good things from games to advanced technology, breaking records thanks to the Cell and creating super computers by linking up to 5 PS3s at the same time in studies from Standford University to NASA.!! that there’s no games for PS3?? pure BS!! that it is hard to develope for it? pure BS!! that it is expensive??pure BS!! you would like to get a 46′HDTV for $800 right?? yeah we all want good things to be cheap! but many people still think that the PS3 is just another video game console like the 360, nooo..it is a next-gen console. And I say this because I own one and it looks to me like all you know about the PS3 is just the 10 percent of what it offers. The things that are to come for it are amazing!!besides the games!! would you like your 360 to turn on by just saying HELLO!? Start running your game by just saying the name of it!?? yeeah I know you do! would you like to operate your 360 from anywhere in the world using a PSP(or an “XBP”)? yeah I know you do! and there is more, like HOME!! and more….

so.. what is there for the future of Xbox? Gears Of War 2??lol…..seriously man, get some information. search the web and get things straight. There is a knew Xbox in the making right now to be released some time in dec 08 or early 09, and do you know what that’s called? FEAR!!FEAR!!FEAR!! FEAR OF SONY!!!!!!
Microsoft knows the 360 is no next-gen console and that they need sometthing better!!!!!!!

Happy Gaming!!!

And regarding the architecture of the PS3 and Xbox360- the full potential of the XBOX360 is yet to be tapped. And on the issue of blu-ray movies: that is just a cheap rip off,i can just wait for the movies to come on TV before they come on BR(just another way sony finds to rip people off).ANYWAY HALO1 ROCKS , HALO2 SHAKES THE GROUND AND HALO3 issssssss aaaaaaaaaaaawwwwwwwwwwwwwweeeeeeeeeeeeeeesssssssssssssssssooooooooooooommmmmmmmmmeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

I enjoy reading the comments and the repetition of fanboy-dom that re-emerges every single bloody console generation. I’ve just got an X360 and am totally happy with it. I did not get Halo 3 simply because it didn’t impress me. No doubt the storyline and playability is stellar, but sometimes it just comes down to preference..so why fight?. I bought the x360 for the games and games (and was dissapointed in the whole media centre thing cos it really is quite pointless unless you really hook it up to a home theater far away from the computer; and oh you xbox live fans, damn ps3 players play for free.)the ps3 won’t get anytime soon, but that doesn’t mean the ps3 is rubbish. I’m looking forward to MGS4 and GT5 and FF13 and have since fallen for heavenly sword but it doesn’t make sense to get the machine at the moment simply because the 360 is so much cheaper and has similar games.I like the PS3 as a diversified media player that plays games, whereas the x360 gives me access to DMC4 and DiRT for almost 1/2 the price, when you consider that the hardware is similar (kojima did say mgs4 was possible on the 360).Now, why do we always have to fight? Get a ps3 if you like the exclusives and have the money. Get an x360 for the same reason. Don’t bash halo 3 simply because whatever system you just bought will have a similar cash-cow that others will love to bash. And while all you x360-ps3 fanboys are fighting it out, the damn wii with it’s rubbish gc graphics is overtaking us all in sales worldwide. You’d think there was one console generation where everyone just plays want they wanted to play, and not just try to prove that what they own is superior.
