Microsoft stated that it generated $220m in its first 24 hours, which is more than Halo 3 and Halo: Reach generated in their 1st 24 hours on sale. It was cheaper than Halo 3 and Halo: Reach (as they both had $150 legendary editions, whereas this only had an $80 limited edition) and it only sold marginally better than both of them (according to VGChartz). So either VGChartz has undertracked it by about 300k units or Microsoft included the console bundle in its revenue figures.

Limited was $100 where I am, in the US.

EDIT: And it's VGChartz. Yeah.

DeFFeR1347d ago

Limited Edition is $100.

Looks like BO2 didn't affect Halo4's sales at all like some were predicting.

LOGICWINS1347d ago

I bet many out there simply just bought both.

SixZeroFour1346d ago

i think hurricane sandy affected the sales more than blops 2 did for usa

braydox211346d ago

Im not sure:

food and water-check
shelter- check
emergancy supplies- check
first aid- check
Call of Duty Black ops 2- check..... wait what?

SixZeroFour1346d ago

pretty sure he's trolling uncharted 3 saying that its life time numbers are the same as 1st week of halo numbers...

A more suitable comparison is GT5 numbers vs halo 4 :P

But these sales numbers are expected from halo :)

papashango1347d ago

Diablo 3 sold over 6 million in its first week. Just sayin

nukeitall1347d ago

@papashango:

Yeah, and CoD sold even better than Diablo on its first day. What is your point?

I don't think any other console exclusive has outsold Halo this generation.

Love how ppl throw uncarted here lol

Angrymorgan1346d ago

What's that?? An uncharted racing game?

Jk :-)

bubblebeam1345d ago

@Angrymorgan

No it's a shopping cart stacking simulator, featuring various characters from the Uncharted universe.

What you were thinknig of is 'UnKarted'.

DaThreats1347d ago

hmm
Europe don't care much about halo

DiRtY1347d ago

hum?

800k first week in Europe only.
Just to give you a perspective (All numbers Europe only):

God of War: 317k
Uncharted 2: 296k
Assassin's Creed 3 (PS3): 577k
Resident Evil 6 (PS3): 311k
Fable III: 266k
Final Fantasy XIII (PS3): 449k
LBP 2: 146k
Gran Turismo 5: 991k
Gears of War 3: 700k

These are all blockbuster games and Halo 4 outsold basically all of them in Europe, except GT 5, but that was expected due to Europes love for cars. close to 1 million in Europe alone in one week is pretty big IMO.

Could you please show me some games Europe actually cares about in your opinion?

nukeitall1347d ago

To put it in perspective, Gran Turismo isn't as popular in US as it is in Europe. Think Halo popularity in Europe is similar to Gran Turismo popularity in the US.

So you are basically comparing one's strong region (GT5) with a a weak one (Halo 4).

etowntwo1347d ago

Shame COD has surpassed Halo.

HALO 4 is my favorite Halo to date so far. Reach.... Close second.

dalibor1346d ago

Well if I had a 360 you can bet I'd get Halo over Cod any day. And so what if it surpassed it, it doesn't make it a better game. I prefer Uncharted over COD and Uncharted doesn't sell like COD does. Just enjoy games and leave it at that is what I say. Game on!

lategamer1346d ago

If Reach is your favorite Halo idk what to say.
