So, Microsoft's Halo 4 Has The Nuts To Take On Black Ops II

Scheduled to come out only one week before the new Call of Duty, Halo 4 may have a quite the battle on its hands. Microsoft isn't worried at all, huh? (Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, Halo 4, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

cod will sell more on xbox.

True but it wont effect halo 4 sales.Any halo fan would buy halo over cod any day...Halo 4 is only behind black ops by around 100,000 units(halo:710,000 cod:870,000)
Not many games go past 500,000 in pre orders even...

ps3-xbox versions sale more or less the same

its funny how u xbots fangirls think otherwise with your "almighty cross chat-xbl" and microsoft by spending mils on adds,promos,exlcusives dlc's etc etc.

check all cod numbers on both platforms they all sale the same

That's odd. Usually the excuse is that PS3 has more games to choose from, and that the players are more mature so they don't buy games like CoD.

Oh well. I suppose we've forgotten about BlackOps' issues on the PS3 and how Activision has been favouring the 360 with DLC.

Sales wise i doubt it since Halo 4 is exclusive. Quality, graphics, story, and settings Halo 4 all the way.

someone from the markets and all that from treyarch need to release the sales of black ops 2 for ps, xbox and so on for each console its on then we would see if halo 4 beat cod on xbox. halo 4 xbox ftw

They will release sales numbers for each console. Even though I love Halo, COD will still sell more on Xbox. One more month to go......

It's pretty simple for me.
Halo 4 gets my money. COD?...Not so much.

To be honest halo.has lost its spark. Call of duty I hate but will beat halo to a punch
ALLWRONG  +   783d ago
I doubt you ever played a Halo game
dillydadally  +   782d ago
Have you seen a single Halo 4 video? They've put the spark back in Halo and then some. Halo 4 looks like its putting innovation and cutting edge graphics and sound back in Halo.

Halo 4 looks fantastic. But he has a point. Halo 1,2, and 3 were were great. Reach and odst were kinda lame. Especially odst.

I like treyarch but gotta give it to my boy MC in the house!
Goldenslaya  +   783d ago
Has the nuts!! Really! I'm sorry but u don't ever say that about one of the best selling console shooter in history! Ill tell u why cod makes money, they are like MC Donald's all the little kids are running around screaming for there happy meals were as halo a 5 star restaurant cost more money but has higher quality. More people r gonna buy the MC Donalds unfortunately but that doesn't make it better. I'm not saying cod is a bad game. But dnt dare talk shit about halo
GarandShooter  +   783d ago
Don't the standard editions of both games have the same MSRP? Don't screaming kids play Halo?

So much for that analogy.

Sales of CoD are not indicative of quality, neither are sales of Halo. They are indicative of popularity.
Intentions  +   783d ago
TBH i hear more 'screaming kids' in CoD.

I will probably be getting both games anyway, halo 4 first tho xD.
Goldenslaya  +   782d ago
Obviously u didn't get my point but its OK, I'm not explaining my point over again. N ur right sales dnt make a game have quality but if halo didn't have anything that made it great I dnt think people would bother buying it, don't u think?
GarandShooter  +   782d ago
You argued both sides with the same argument.

'don't ever say that about one of the best selling console shooter in history'

and

'More people r gonna buy the MC Donalds unfortunately but that doesn't make it better.'

So respect and props to Halo for sales but not to CoD? I'm not getting the logic.

'N ur right sales dnt make a game have quality but if halo didn't have anything that made it great I dnt think people would bother buying it, don't u think?'

Can't the same be said about CoD? More so if it outsells Halo 4 on the 360?

I get the point that you prefer Halo to CoD, but your arguments to prove one's superiority to the other fall short.
Goldenslaya  +   782d ago
The reason why I dnt use cod as an example is because it will sell regardless of whether its good or not however any other game for that matter if its shit not many people will buy it. Cod never has to worry about sales
JeffGUNZ  +   781d ago
@ Goldenslaya. That is the dumbest thing I have heard. People buy COD because they enjoy COD. Sure, it may not be your cup of tea, but just because you don't like it, doesn't mean millions of others don't. The reason COD is good and popular is COD4. They created an engine and mechanics that work. The game is fun, simple as that. COD just didn't get lucky and drones of people started buying it, it produces solid products and brings people back for more.
