A Halo game? With amazing sales?!?

STOP THE PRESSES! WE HAVE OURSELVES A NEW HEADLINE!

evrfighter2924d ago

cue the "I play games not sales QQ." from the same people who were creaming their pants over slim sales.

randomwiz2924d ago

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!!

Oh Oh bad news for the PS3 fans. There is gonna be a lot of crying in here.

The-Warranty2924d ago

Ahh and in the first few comment we are already mentioned. ^_^

.....but not topping ratings.

@1.3 -
Go share it with the open zone.

FlameBaitGod2924d ago

You said it right, because there are no good games on 360 and since every one who owns a 360 buys it for halo.

Winter47th2924d ago (Edited 2924d ago )

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.

JokesOnYou2924d ago (Edited 2924d ago )

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.

SupaPlaya2924d ago

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.

morganfell2924d ago

Meanwhile the Xbox 360 can't stay in the top 25 at the same retailer. Ooops.

poopsack2924d ago

"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? :(

dreamcast2924d ago

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.

Anon19742924d ago (Edited 2924d ago )

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.
