Microsoft Corp.'s Halo 3: ODST ranked as the top-selling video game at a U.S. retailer one day prior to launch.
... is a game
A Halo game? With amazing sales?!? STOP THE PRESSES! WE HAVE OURSELVES A NEW HEADLINE!
cue the "I play games not sales QQ." from the same people who were creaming their pants over slim sales.
i wonder how many of those pre orders know that there's no match making for firefight. This game would've been so awesome if there was matchmaking for firefight... oh well, i guess its worth it since i dont have 1 of the map packs, and the extra 3 maps, and the reach beta, and firefight will be fun when my friends get it.
Its funny how people say all Halo is good for is getting sales, yet they don't mention the countless hours people spend on it AFTER buying the game. If I recall, isn't Halo 3 the MOST PLAYED exclusive between the PS3 and 360? If it isn't, enlighten me..please. BTW: Im not a fanboy, hell the only console I own is a PS3. I just think its stupid how people PRETEND Halo's crap when its proven time and time again that it isn't for most people. @Megan- Give me back the 8 bucks I spent on that sh!t movie Transformers 2!!
"Halo 3: ODST Xbox 360 tops U.S. retail chart" Oh Oh bad news for the PS3 fans. There is gonna be a lot of crying in here.
Ahh and in the first few comment we are already mentioned. ^_^
.....but not topping ratings. @1.3 - Go share it with the open zone.
are your pockets deep
You said it right, because there are no good games on 360 and since every one who owns a 360 buys it for halo.
People will be disappointed. Most will buy it just 'cause it's Halo, but once they find out there's no new MP, the SP's only 5 hours long, Firefight's not finished with no Matchmaking, same 2007 graphics, just a 60$ spin off. They might loose their faith in Bungie. I know I have.
Bungie has managed to craft such a great game that Halo's reputation speaks for itself, great sales are not news, its expected. Wow, just wow Bungie...making a great game like Halo3 and continuing to support your games has earned you the respect and full support of your fans. -Imagine that... JOY
"They might loose their faith in Bungie." lol right. Lets not start dreaming into a far stretch now. You must not understand the loyalty built up behind Halo games from it's fans. Damn near unbreakable.
I don't think it's Halo 3 good, but still very good. I personally think the majority of people buying are Halo fans, not someone who knows nothing about the franchise and getting ripped off somehow.
Meanwhile the Xbox 360 can't stay in the top 25 at the same retailer. Ooops.
"bad news for the PS3 fans." how? i thought 360 fans supported the 360 by liking the 360? what do the PS3 fans have to do with this, is this not why everyone was spamming the destructoid article? :(
If a Halo RTS can sell as well as Halo Wars did, I don't think any Halo game will ever sell poorly. Ever. I know people joke about Halo Kart, but I would actually play it. I liked the race tracks in forge.
Of course Halo is topping the charts. What else is coming out? Halo wars would have topped the charts if it came out right now. Also, I don't understand the "bad news for PS3 fans" comment. Why is this bad news for PS3 fans? If they wanted to play Halo, they'd be 360 fans - like I am, and they'd play Halo. Otherwise, why would they even care? That's like saying "Oh! Oranges are selling well! Bad news for people who like apples!" That's ridiculous.
it's halo what do you expect?
Yes...amazing sales .
non-deserving score reviews?
Apparently you for clicking on the link and commenting.
so thats you, anyone else?.
I agree with Patchstation3
Keep it movin'.
now im just saying, what do people usually say its AAA if it scores an over 90 average and sells a certain amount we all know that its gonna sell well regardless but last time i checked its at an 8.4 average so does that make it "1.5 A?" back on point, cant wait to play it
ill rent it. i still think 60 bucks is a little to much for me for this game. but hey, im happy for bungie, great devs they are.
Medalla?!!!! Are you from Puerto Rico or something Fiona?
Medalla light el sabor que nos mueve!!!!!!!
was anyone not expecting this?
that's it? Only the TOP of the charts? C mon bungie... this is HALO we're talking about here. The TOP is not enough.
Taking the crown before its even out. What a freakin beast this franchise is! It deserves nothing less. Its nice when you're fave game of all time is also enjoyed by so many others out there. To those of us that cant get enough Halo, its strange that so many out there dont like it...but what are u gonna do? C'est la vie. I sure hope the XBL servers are ready for this...LOL. and when MW2 drops, those suckers will be working some OT! Im also glad I never got around to getting any of the map packs before, just not enough time. The MP is gonna feel real fresh all over again.
Americans will buy any updated piece of garbage and this proves it. j/k?????
Madden proves it, Call of Duty proves it, and what else...? mmmmm Anyway, the point was already made! =)
Also on the 11 o'clock news, the sky is blue, the earth orbits around the sun, and smurfs are imaginary.
"smurfs are imaginary." Or are they?
Good work bungie
xbots love there sales .. chuck norris only plays AAA GAMES .
Chuck norris is an eighty year old has been
holy crap..i can't believe a halo game made it to the top, its like final fantasy or dragon quest being on top in japan ITS NEVER BEEN DONE!
HALO SERIES: NIGHTMARE OF DROIDS.
yeah cuz it sucks so bad xD Sorry had to say it =P u were asking for it
...you're telling the truth? kinda pointless...
lol, the proof is right beneath you knightdarkbox :)
Finally fanboys can play "Tout teh salez to make teh PS3 fangirls cry" My god this comment section is hilarious =P I wonder if half of you would act this way if you had a hot girl sitting behind you...=P
