Halo Reach continues to track below the Xbox 360 version of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, with the gap widening to 80,000. Total pre-orders with 10 weeks until release is 477,000.
maybe because reach is an exclusive and MW2 wasn't?
Yeah...kinda common sense
If you actually read the article you'd see that they are comparing Halo Reach to Modern Warfare 2 on Xbox 360 alone.
where does it say that? It never says it's comparing the 360 version...just MW2
Common sense, research? Here is the link for pre-orders for Modern Warfare 2, 10 weeks out from launch (i.e same as Halo: Reach is now): http://www.vgchartz.com/pre... 1 Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 X360 10 64,354 557,880 4 Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 PS3 10 26,058 181,629 So whereas Halo: Reach is on 477,000 pre-orders, MW2 on 360 was on 557,000 pre-orders at the same point in time.
vgchartz=lets release fake numnbers with not proof from where we get them. Ill keep on saying this on any vgchartz numbers article. No matter what system or game.
while the numbers are questionable, we have nowhere else that gives us free worldwide sales for any game that is currently out. So vgchartz is the only option we've got unfortunately.....but the bright side is, the numbers are NOT completely wrong...so you can get a pretty good idea on what the sales are though they aren't 100% accurate. And NPD numbers don't match Vgchartz because its impossible for both to be exactly the same according to the website Admin person. He says that the Japanese weekly sales are a good example since media crate and famitsu numbers are different from each other. Until someone can create a better site with more accuracy, we are stuck with VGC.... think of it as living in a planet where there is only one girl, but shes ugly....you're stuck with her, though you don't necessarily like her.
Halo: Reach - Xbox 360. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 : Xbox 360, PS3, PC DS.
Again, read the article - it is comparing to just the 360 version of MW2
Halo: Reach is beating Black Ops pre-orders by over 100,000...
and by 283,158 if you only look at 360 sales.
And Black Ops is releasing 2 months later :D Edit : How can someone disagree with FACT ? Black Ops is releasing 2 months later...in November...Reach in September.
Yeah but that story isn't quite as sexy. Personally, I'm waiting to preorder Halo: reach until I get my $20 credit from Amazon from buying Metroid:Other M. That will be in early august (I think). Then I'm going to use the $20 credit from Halo:Reach to get Fallout:New Vegas.
Halo: Reach is currently in second position overall, with Starcraft II in first..
Im surprised that Medal of Honor is so high. Makes you wonder if COD: BO is having sales taken away from it by MOH.
One would assume COD:BO is having sales taken away from it by COD:MW2, the way gamers view Activision right now, and how Activision did IW wrong.
most of the people that buy thesed games, have no idea what activision did to IW.
i dont see MOH eating any sales from COD . I think people will keep getting conned by COD no matter what , and then a good chunk of them will ALSO buy MOH . Just look at BC bad company 2 , many of it's owner already had bought cod mw2 , and go back and forth between the two
it's freakin halo, it'll do just fine.
So no problem... its halo it will sell better than every ps3 exclusive together day 1.
Every exclusive put together ? day one ? not gonna happen. Even if it does, would it matter ? I play games...not sales. What do you play ? And sales =/= quality
MGS4 4,83 million GT5P 3,79 million Resistance FoM 3,70 million LBP 3,53 million Sum: 15,85 million Lets not forget GT5 is coming and it will sell 10 million +
10 million+ ? Do you actually believe your own BS? Sure Gran Turismo have sold many copies but it was back in the old PS2 days and PS2 was the king. I bet that Gran Turismo will sell 3 million + copies by Feb 2011 though
I really doubt it, most people were let down by odst, and they will remember. I thought it was a decent game but not great.
More people bought ODST than bought MGS4. :)
Interesting. Maybe the Halo reign is coming to an end (thankfully).
I don't see how this is relevant, more people will pre-order as it gets closer. I haven't pre-ordered mine yet. And if it ends up being less than MW2, so what? Pennywise...My philosophy has always been why use the money now when I can use it 3 days before the game comes out to the same effect. Doesn't matter if I pre-order today or September 10th, I still get the game day 1. There's no point in $20 just sitting there when it can be used for something else.
If you are going to preorder, why wait? Amazon is give a $20.00 gift card for Reach... snag it now!
Because I am awaiting for my $20 credit for buying Metroid: Other M to come through. That way I can get Halo: reach for $40 with free two day shipping thanks to Amazon's Free year of Amazon Prime for students deal AND get $20 to put towards Fallout 3:New Vegas.
Best Buy had a great one a few months ago and I missed it. I can't wait to see what other retailers will come up with. Pre-order or not I'm in on day one.
who cares about sales im going to enjoy it thats all that matters
