In thirteen years time, Halo has sold a staggering amount of copies.
That's an extremely impressive figure, especially when put into perspective... It comes from just 2 console generations totalling just 108m sales. Well done Edit @ Ka7be, yes, that was the point I was trying to make... GT sold on 3 generations and 340m consoles So 3x as many consoles for 20m more sales In perspective Halo has REALY done well. @ PorkChop, thx you'r right, to a lesser extent there are additional platforms, PC.
Ok MS now release it all on the Pc and reach 100m in no time. If you or ever want to be forgiven for that gfwl crap you will give PC Gamers all things Halo or at least the MCC.
It does seem odd that Microsoft would pass-up on all those sales, especially considering Windows is their primary platform after all. It's like Nintendo refusing to release Mario games for the Wii U because they think it would interfere with their 3DS sales, even though they own both platforms.
Look at Halo being the lifeblood of Xbox. It doesn't just sell well on Xbox. It sells hardware It sells Xbox live gold memberships They'd be giving up a lot of profits just for a few million unit sales. The demand for Halo on PC isn't strong...The MCC petitions are weak as hell and take 0 effort to fill out.
Fully agreed ati elite gfwl was incredibly annoying. [email protected] Ms dont own the pc platform they provide an operating system to use which many many gamers pirate btw, there also mac and linux which play a limited amount of games..Some people happily game on mac alone and i know a few.
Micro doesn't own pc, Halo MCC on pc would do very little if anything to help their Windows OS dominance and alot to go against Halo+Xbox plans. Micro doesn't owe pc gamers anything, microsoft owns xbox hardware and thus MUST ensure X1 gamers are priority when it comes to their 1st party exclusives. They put specific games, mostly a few 3rd party exclusive deals on pc for a added revenue stream but Halo is one of those titles where the it wouldn't be smart, at least not for the next 2+ years but yeah I could see the MCC coming to pc after 2-3 years from now, still doubt it though.
Actually the series wasn't only on 2 platforms. It was also on Windows PC, OSX, and Windows Phone. But yeah, 60m units sold is pretty great.
I've bought and enjoyed every Halo release since the Original on the Xbox. So many great memories wih the multiplayer. Master Chief is a legend and for good reason. Congrats to Microsoft, Bungie and 343 Industries.
Bungie left a great legacy behind and I'm so proud of what 343i was able to accomplish with Halo4 and the franchise as a whole. They've(343i) proven themselves to be very capable of continuing that great legacy and with that said I can't wait to see what they achieve with Halo5. Its going to be an amazing game. Congrats to MS ,Bungie and 343i
Should be early 50s not 60. Didnt see a source either
"Should be early 50s not 60. Didnt see a source either" Do you have a source that confirms its early 50s?
This is easily believable, Halo 3 15M Halo Reach 10M Halo 4 9M Halo 2 8M Halo 1 6M These are just the main entries on Xbox platforms and that is like 48M. Halo 3 ODST, Wars, SA, Halo 1 and 2 PC, Halo CE Ann probably easily make that 60M
Lol 7 disagrees and im an xbot lol. Lawson your at 48 million and h1/2 did 5 and 7 last time heard bringing it to 46. Wars 2 , odst 4/5, pc dont know if they included with the originals. Last real numbers was dec 2012 after H4 MS hit 50 million
lol ha, owned @jetlian couldnt even come up with recent info...why use stats from 2+ years ago?
http://news.xbox.com/2014/1... It says it right here in this official press release. More then 60 million copies Thirteen years ago, Xbox made gaming history with the release of Halo: Combat Evolved. Then, ten years ago, Halo 2 changed the face of gaming forever. To date, more than 60 million copies of Halo games have been sold worldwide
People are disagreeing because you are simply wrong... Halo 2 has sold 8.5M and 1 has sold 6.5M according to VGChartz. Now that I am not on 2G... All from VGChartz except 3 which was confirmed by MS. 1- 6.5M 2- 8.5M 3- 15M 4- 9M+ digital Reach- 9.5+ digital CE Ann.- 2M ODST- 6M That is 56.5M, it is most definitely possible the franchise has hit 60M sold. Apparently MS has even confirmed the number in a link above.
Well now that MS confirmed it good as I dont fully trust Vgcharts and H4 was the last major one. In any case cant decide on which two to get first halo mcc, ACU, or Far cry 4
Good stuff :) Now give me MCC, and Halo 5!!
And Destiny WILL NEVER achieve this greatness.
What greatness? You do see the ones made by Bungie sold best right? Plus I'm sure COD sold more then this, which is sad.
COD is multi-platform Mr. Braniac, Halo is majority xbox only so how is COD even remotely relevant? Oh and just an fyi, most Bungie staff jumped ship to 343i before Bungie departed... So technically the great devs are still making Halo. Derp.
An yet Halo 4 sold less, hm I wonder why? Halo is on PC, Xbox and Windows Phone and maybe other OS.
dude isnt cod gonna be released on like 7 different consoles? x1,360,ps4,ps3,pc,wii,vita,i think you can even find it on ds
Protoss You are incorrect about bungie employees jumping to 343. 343 was built with industry vets from other studios.. But most of the initial talent like Corrine left for other studios like naughty dog.
Destiny is only one game though, hardly a fair comparison.
maybe Destiny 2 or 3, but Destiny 1 never
Hot damn!!! To be continued.... Game on.
Incredible! Great job, MC collection will move Xone units for sure.
Well I will be adding to that number when MCC releases next month
Nice numbers. Granturismo franchise surpasses 80 millions. Oh if people want to know the best selling game of all time... Its Tetris 185 million! Russia rules them all! :D http://en.wikipedia.org/wik...
It's actually 70 million http://en.m.wikipedia.org/w...
You didn't even read your own link lol. Check again http://www.polyphony.co.jp/... Its 70million without GT6.
GT 6 was a huge flop quality wise and sales wise compared to other GT games. I doubt it brings the figure close to 80 million. Who even remebers GT 6 came out less than a year ago.
Over 70 million, as of 2011, per your own link, 98x. That's three years and one game excluded from those numbers. VGChartz- yeah, I know- has GT6 at just under 3 mil, and that excludes digital sales. So what you and SuperLupe want people to believe is that three years of sales for GT5 and PSP, plus at least 3 million for GT6 wouldn't put the franchise closer to 80 than 70?
i forgot about gt6 lol..didnt even play it i lost hope since gt:prologue and those server issues
Halo is a very successful franchise.mmmm, I wonder if the reason destiny failed was because bungie didn't want to destroy their image. Destiny logo is the SPARTAN-II pelvis in their design. Its almost like Steven Spielberg not wanting to destroy his most successful movie of all time ET
Congratulations to MS, Bungie and 343 for an excellent legacy with Halo can't wait to see what the future holds keep up the good work.
Wow just over Mario kart wii.
No shock. Halo is a juggernaut franchise. The chief will sell more XOs this fall, in droves. :)
