Microsoft's blockbuster reaches an incredible new milestone.
I'm seriously wondering how Halo 5 is supposed to break Halo 4s 24 hour record of $220 Million. But if MCC has sold closed to 5 million (Based on it being the only Halo release in that time and accounts for the majority of sales and is bundled with X1s) it has a shot of breaking that record... Even with the lower install base.
I'm assuming that at least half of the xbox one owners will buy Halo 5
agreed, like Mario games to Nintendo, Halo games have huge attachment rates to Xbox owners.
Rimeskeem, your math is off,bud. Assuming we are just talking about the $60 version... $60 x 4,000,000 = $240,000,000 I am sure there are more than 8 million XB1 in the hands of XB1 owners by now. More like 13-14 million now. Not sure if you are just not aware of how the math work or a slight jab at the install base. Anyways, it doesn't matter. I think if 1/4 of the user base buying the game at launch should do the trick of breaking the Halo 4 $220,000,000 day one record when you factor in the $99 collector edition and the few $250 editions that will be sold on release day. Anyhow, Halo 5 will do gangbuster on release day and I'll be there on the midnight launch to support it regardless. Great time for XB1 owners indeed. @Rimeskeem below, You just replied to a question about how Halo 5 is going to break Halo 4's 24 hours sale record...what other meaning does your reply have besides that?
At rookie you know that I wasn't doing any math I was literally saying that at least half of xbox one owners will buy Halo 5. that is all. I wasn't jabbing the install base (WTF) I was just saying I wouldnt be surprised if half of the xbox one owners bought Halo.
Those are some big numbers. Congrats to the Xbox division.
What is neglected is Halo is a console seller. Halo 5 will bring MS one hell of a holiday sale. Last year was freaken crazy, but this year is going to be way crazier. Halo 5, BC, Forza 6, Tomb Raider, Gears:UE and next year is crazy too. I think it would be incredibly hard to resist an Xbox One now.
@Opie Halo 5 will definitely beat that record. its going to add to these numbers in a big way.
Halo 3 did immense numbers and that was 2 years into the 360s cycle.
This game will move consoles like crazy.
Agreed christocolus, with the marketing Microsoft has done with Halo 5 starting in March with the HUNTtheTRUTH campaign, Halo 5 is bound to exceed expectations with sales. The exceptional response to the beta will also help as well. This is the first Halo game since Reach to have the majority of the veterans on board again so expect Halo 3 numbers or more.
I'm hoping it does, because I want Halo for 30 more years XD.
Halo 5 will no doubt do great things, and to me it looks like it's shaping up to be the best Halo ever...still beating those 24 hour numbers for H4 will be tough...when Halo 4 came out, 360 had an install base of probably 75-80 million....right now X1 is probably closer to 13-14 Million. Halo 5 will get there, but I'm not holding my breath on the 24 hr record.
It will definitely move units, but I'm neutral for both sony and xbox this holiday season. Both will do gangbusters this holiday season! Can't wait to see the many new gamers populate the respective consoles and servers. Going to be a good one for everyone this year.
Halo is super popular but I doubt the MCC has sold 5 mil. If so that's very impressive for a remaster collection but I won't believe it until I see an official statement. Unless of course they are counting each copy sold as 4 units because it includes 4 Halo games?
Well done MS also congratulations to all the gamers who came on board from the other two competing consoles to play HALO MCC. Note HALO MCC has sold more then any other remaster to date that is an accomplishment on its own.
Halo is one of the biggest and best franchises FPS, can not wait for Halo 5. Congratulations to Team Xbox.
Agreed. " This is up from 60 million Halo titles sold worldwide in October 2014" That's an increase of 5 million in 10 months. Nice. Congrats to MS and 343i. Cant wait to jump on Halo 5.
Dont forget Bungie
Remembering bungie? Who cares that they created all this... They make stuff for PS4 now. *disagree* /s
Does this include all 11 halo games?
I count 10 - 2 Mobile , 5 story based, 2 side stories , 1 RTS . where's 11 If you count those as actual games and not just re-masters , then lets hope it counts for all games across all platforms, Halo 1 remaster MCC
Halo 1 Halo 2 Halo 3 Halo 4 Halo reach Halo ODST Halo wars Halo 1 remaster Halo Spartan Assault (2) MCC
@Rimeskeem You missed Halo: Spartan Strike And MCC should be: Halo MCC with Halo 2 Remaster
To be fully correct, if your counting all the Halo games, ie ports, RTS, mobile etc, its likely even past that. It would be like 13 if you count Halo 1 and 2 PC ports. If we are just counting all releases regardless of new or not.
...that's staying power!!! 11 games in (assuming you are correct) and Halo 5 looks to be the best of them all.
Well that's what happens with a successful franchise....
Halo 5 alone will bring it up to 75 million I strongly believe.
It'll definetly match Halo 3s figure of 8.1 million by January.
Halo 3 sold more then 8.1 million copies
Congrat! Will continue to do my part of adding to the 65 million with Halo 5 this October. One of the biggest exclusive franchise in history and well deserved.
Absolute @Rookie Halo 5 can't come soon enough
Halo is cool and all but I don't want it to last as long as mario
Didn't they jus restart a trilogy with 5? I swore i read that somewhere, either way as long as theres an xbox theres halo
I think it started with halo 4 and called it the Reclaimer trilogy
Halo is like Star Wars. There's allways a new story to tell from different planets, species etc.
Halo is too big to die. I don't mind if it keeps going as long as every game is a quality title and comes after a reasonable time.
Nicely done Microsoft. Congrats!
I'm part of that, and looking forward to Halo 5!
So am I... My top game this year!
Same here. Since Halo:CE on the OG xbox, to the birth of its XBL MP debut..I never looked back. my halo skills are pretty immense at this point in time. looking forward to taking it up a notch with the new abilities, especially once all the other players calibrate themselves to the new sense of mobility and the new balancing of the weapons. And warzone is going to be nuts! In the meantime Im staying practiced and warmed up on MCC :) Heres to the future *raises glass*
Microsoft's best gaming move ever ! Crazy, that Halo was being developed for PS2 and Mac until Microsoft bought Bungie .
I think everyone is lucky the game didnt end up releasing on the ps2. Id hate to imagine what sacrifices would of been made to the game to have it run on the ps2. The sheer size of the levels and the near instant load times between sections would of been gone.
This means Halo outsold Gran Turismo
Not yet Gran turismo has sold 71.1m but its catching up! http://vgsales.wikia.com/wi... https://en.wikipedia.org/wi...
no it doesn't, not even close infact, GT was at 70million before GT6 Launched.
Day one, nuff said.
I'll give it a rental. Too many other good games out this year.
Or buy Halo and rent the other games?
You have to buy an Xbox first :P
Maybe he's hoping if he spins the disc on his hand fast enough it will play...then question if it's 1080p or not
Haha well said so true
Well kid I do have one so why would I need to buy another one? Is it so hard to believe that I'm not excited about another halo game? You same people get so butt hurt all the time. It's always you, that christocolus guy and pistols. I'm starting to think that you are the same person, following my posts. Besides why do you lot even care if I have a xbone? I don't care if you don't believe me. You 3 are the same one's that keep on bringing it up. How childish are you? "Oh he's not praising xbone all the time, so by that simple logic he doesn't have one. Hurr hurr hurr"
@poor_cus_of_Games here are some delightful hating on Xbox from the first few pages of you comments. ----------------------------- ------------------------ "Wow GOW 3 is a graphical power house. Again an other exclusive on ps4 destroying xbox exclusive games. Well done Sony ." ----------------------------- ------------------------ "Yup. The graphical power of all of them xbox games can't compare" ----------------------------- ------------------------ "I'm waiting on the definitive version"(in relation to Tombraider) ----------------------------- ------------------------ "Batman arkham knight, the witcher 3 and metal gear solid are all games that are gonna blow halo out of the water". ----------------------------- ------------------------ and your comments just go on an on in this style. But yeah it's obvious people are just gunning for you. Poor in money, rich in hate.
Lol...seriously that was funny. Bubble up.
definitely buy Halo and rent the others. MCC is testament to the fact that Halo MP never gets old. I still play 3-5 matches every night
Im starting to think maybe something is up with my copy or maybe Aussie servers. I still cannot get into a single game on MCC. I leave it searching for 15 to 20 mins and it says players found but then just keeps searching and never connects me to a game. Im trying in Halo 2 Anniversary play list and Halo 2 classic with no luck. The funny thing is just after launch when the game was at its most broken state i was able to connect to games and play. Now its been fixed and i cant get into anything
Serious question, who rents games anymore?
Millions of gamers rent games through GameFly.
@battletrax... Thank you... I seriously forgot that existed because I haven't seen ads for it in a very long time.
Im gonna go on a limb and say probably 50-70% probably in that area of all X1 owners are gonna be buying Halo 5. Thats a lot of Halo 5 sales.
I'm gonna say that limb you're on is pretty weak. You might be over inflating those numbers by just a lot.
Halo5 is gonna be so good!! Anyone whos had there hands on the beta knows this is fact
Sure, how about the Mario series? Zelda series? I think these numbers are irrelevant
Maybe it's an age thing, but i think halo is over-rated. I have the mcc, and it's decent, but i'd say master chef is boring, and too much is recycled. Very solid story in halo 1&2, and i appreciate it being the reason mass effect exists, but it's not a great franchise to me. Maybe halo 3 & 4 are improvements ? really liked cutscenes in halo 2, they were great.
Nice. Good for the franchise. Always nice to see a prominent franchise hit big numbers. I remember standing in line at the midnight launch for Halo 3.
very good lets hope it hits 100 mill by the end of this gen!
Halo was the reason I went from PlayStation to Xbox. I had ps1 and ps2 and was planning to get ps3. Halo 3 had just came out and was getting mad hype. Halo didn't look that interesting to me but the hype it was getting was off the charts, so I bought Halo CE for PC.....was hooked after just the second mission and with it's addiction MP I bought Xbox 360 over ps3 and been a Halo fan ever since. My first 360 game was Halo 3,bought odst, rented reach, bought 4 day 1, got Xbox one with MCC black Friday 2014 and will buy Reach when backwards compatibility arrive for Xbox one to complete my halo collection and will preorder halo 5 in August or September. BEST GAME FRANCHISE EVER!!!! It's even the only FPS I play.
