still part of this world.

With video game sales down worldwide and Call of Duty Black Ops II releasing tomorrow, I think it'll be very hard for Halo 4 to sell as well as Halo 3 or even Halo Reach

FamilyGuy2049d ago

Don't Halo and a COD title always end up releasing near eachother? Seems like they both always come out in november. Black ops 2 is set to be the biggest seller yet but Im just saying halo is always competing with it and it does reeeeally well compared to any other game that gets put up against this juggernaut.

Yes, the UK. As the article's title and picture would suggest.

People are getting tired of Halo. Call of Duty is king now. It has been for years.

Just checked some data

Halo 3=15th,Halo:Reach=12th
Reach=380k,around 20k more than 3=360k,since chart-track( http://www.chart-track.co.u... said it sold slightly more than AC3(AC3=around 333k),Halo 4 should be around 340k

Decent sales,not really lower,but little surprised Reach>Halo 3 in UK launch week

The xbox 360 install base has only gotten bigger since Reach, and since 3 massively. However I think a fair amount of people held off from Halo 4 as it is muchly similar to previous iterations and maybe waiting for the price to drop to justify it.

I know I am, after buying every Halo on launch including the first on xbox I decided I can wait now. I used to be a massive Halo fan but the sheen has just come off just a teeny bit for me personally.

I am quite sure I will pick it up and play it but not on launch this time for me.

@Vulcan

As someone who has also bought all Halo's at launch, in my opinion this is the best Halo yet. Armor customization, commendations, daily/weekly/monthly challenges, make for a great multiplayer and the campaign, while short, fits perfectly.

I'm all for waiting for price drops, but I think you're missing out.

As a UK gamer I suspect that people are being careful with their purchases just before xmas.

I've bought Forza Horizon and pre ordered Blops2 as there were good deals to be had. I want AC3 and Halo 4 but as there is so much going down with the two ive got I made the decision to put the otheres on my xmas list.

If im lucky I will get one or both as xmas presents. If not then I'll hopefully get them at a lower cost after xmas and once ive finished horizon and blops2.

plenty of choice at the moment. I'm also busy with Battlefield 3, Trials Evolution Origin of Pain and Forza 4.

happy days ;-)

It isn't like it didn't surpass all of them in sales worldwide though, I suspect Halo 4 will have legs throughout the rest of the year and into next year. I was actually surprised it outdid all the other Halo games like it did, mostly because BO2 and AC3 launched around the same time.
