And this is just in the US 0_o

Should easily past 3ml in a week, it surprising how high MW2 is considering its still pretty far off. Forza 3 looks to be a hit too.

MW2 yes
ODST yes

forza ??
no

the first 2 got heavily bundled and thats the only reason that they sold

lol
what ever

Omega42953d ago

Well if Forza 3 will fail U2 will be a colossal commercial failure because it has less preoders and is going to be released sooner than Forza 3.

Nothing to spin its just funny it makes you feel good, lol

N4G king2953d ago (Edited 2953d ago )

i think wii sports is better than all halos combined

well

it did sell a lot more than all halos combined

XDF2953d ago (Edited 2953d ago )

There is a reason why you are called yourself N4G King..LOL.

Logic and realty don't fit in your vocabulary. Forza 3 has more preorder than any PS3 exclusive thus far. If it is a flopped, then Uncharted 2 must be a dud...it has way less preorder..KZ2 again, anyone?

Chrisny852953d ago

since bungie confirmed there is no such multiplayer where you can be the odst in player vs player.. im considering canceling. im not paying 50 for old maps and horde.

Tinted Eyes2953d ago

Arent these in the Us where the 360 outnumbers PS3?

Serjikal_Strike2953d ago

a game that scored a 64/100....pretty sad!

red5ive2953d ago

enjoy your glorified expansion pack.

mrv3212953d ago

Population of stupid is roughly 1.2 million :P strange.

Firstly genuine in-game videos(not some fancy advert with special effects and nothing to do with the shameful graphics) has been released.

Secondly if you have Halo 3 why get this one? The ending has been released and look sub standard.

Tito Jackson2953d ago

one of the many

This game is going to be a lot of fun. Period.

Saaking2953d ago

The game is a rehash of Halo 3. Not worth 60 imo, and def. not buying. All these people are just getting sucked into the false hype.

Lifendz2953d ago (Edited 2953d ago )

They get a game that's originally set to be DLC, and they say "no no, let's charge full price for it. It does, after all, have the name Halo on it."

And the gamers, of whom I am one, don't in any way feel slighted as evidenced by the preorders. That 360 base will truly buy anything.

I know Sony wants that market but I'm almost scared of what may happen if they get it. Will some Uncharted 2 ODST type of game be released and, if so, will they charge full price for it?

2 very dangerous precedents have been established this gen: Nintendo selling an underpowered system for 249.99 and making bukko bucks off of it and MS overcharging for any and everything. If this trend continues the next slew of consoles will be technically identically (for the most part) to this gen and we'll be paying out the you know what for functionality/DLC/ etc.

i doubt that all preorders know that this game don't have PVP multiplayer
they will be really surprised that the biggest reason why they buy the game is not included in the game

Halo 3: ODST preorders top 1.2 million?

Wow and im not part of those preorders.

With Forza 3, Operation Flashpoint Dragon Rising & Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 im ok for 7 months.

da720izcumin2953d ago

this game will outsell all fall exclusives of ps3.....
I'll be getting it second week though, when the money rolls in, the ODST's will follow.

That's has to be like the 100th time I've read that from you.

Someone's really trying desperately hard to keep the sleeping giant from awakening. Hope you don't lose sleep over it

IaMs122953d ago

Haha yes this is an expansion pack to keep the Halo fever going until the release of Reach, no one is denying that. Over priced of course, which is freaking ridiculous! BUT why do people bash it for being an expansion when the real game is coming next year?

lol and flopzone 2 stuck in 1m...

halo odst>>>>all fps in 2009

IcyJoker1872953d ago

reviews say otherwise lol

Gabe EatsWell2953d ago

Quality > Quantity

Have fun with RRODST, the most generic shooter this gen.

InfectedDK2953d ago

Mediocre game and crappy console.. But the bots has to buy an exclusive and this one it is..

Gamer_Politics2953d ago

maybe you sony fans should start buying more games instead of being on ng4 hating on every piece of 360 news

Chubear2953d ago

When there's joy that an obvious mediocre game is outselling other great and truly innovative games in it's respective genre, it is indeed a sad sad day for gaming and gamers.

InfectedDK2953d ago (Edited 2953d ago )

@Gamer_Politics Come on pls.. You know it. Maybe 360 fanboys shouldn't have shot the PS3 down in the first place which by now makes them look like fools and not gamers at all! Pls..

Gamer_Politics2953d ago

yeah so its ok for sony fans to bash the 360 since it first came on the market in your eyes....

InfectedDK2953d ago (Edited 2953d ago )

No it's ok to bash it because I feel sad for the many people that has bought it and are stuck with it.. Also I feel that it is my right to do so since the media is biased against Sony and for the 360 because of other things than great gaming itself.. The "bots" I'm referring to is the minority still defending the 360.. It says more about them than any other.. True gamers go out by now and buy a PS3.

So you are defending a console with the highest sick failure rate in the history? Paying for online? It is amaaaaaaazing nothing has happened, that the console hasn't been stopped in production or taken back in the beginning.

The 360 is not here because of great gaming, it's here because of money making only and Halo ODST is one great example of that..
I'm not defending the PS3 about the money making at all.. But they make hardware and games that are for the consumers best!

Saaking2953d ago

And this is the very reason sales =/= quality. Halo sucks yet it sells.

Gamer_Politics2953d ago (Edited 2953d ago )

your no better than any other fanboy on this site enough with the foolish excuse of why u choose to bash another console.....and u say sony makes games for the consumers best?well let the sales speak for its self...

InfectedDK2953d ago

That is your oppinion. Respect for that but that won't change anything. No I don't just look at sales I look at quality and sales doesn't mean quality.

KiRBY30002953d ago

xbots think the greatest the sales are, the better the game must be. nice logic, you brainwashed tool.

evrfighter2953d ago

I bought Killzone 2. It sucks. Glad it didn't sell. Would hate to have to be forced to play 3 more sequels of crap before the next console comes out.

Ausbo2953d ago

you droids all say the reviews will suck but when they are actually good then they are paid off by microsoft.
I love watching the open zone full of little kids to laugh at.

It would be disappointing if ODST doesn't outsell Killzone 2's lifetime numbers in it's first week.

N4G king2953d ago

well you know
kids and no life geeks
they love their halo

Shane Kim2953d ago

Yeah Soda. You have Master Chief so far up your @ss I can bet you allready pre-ordered 10 copies of this DLC.

GiantEnemyCrab2953d ago

I don't think you will be disappointed.

Halo_Reach2953d ago

start Crying 22 September!

LilMissGoddess2953d ago

i believe they already have started that. i think it's going to be a great game, along with halo reach when it comes out. i just love seeing the droids bash every piece of news that comes out for the 360, even if it's good news. but that's the droids for you though, that will never change.
