It was never in doubt that Halo: Reach would be one of the biggest games of the year, but with the release of the game now less than a week away, VGChartz brings you the latest pre-order figures and week one predictions.
Biggest game of the year!
Black Ops? I would guess that it will sell the most copies out of all games coming out this year. Plus its on PC and PS3 too, not just 360.
@jbroken..its only natural for you xboox fanboys to buy halo since its your biggest game game.ofcourse its going to sell alot since thats all you guys want to buy now
Oh for crying out loud JBroken Gran Turismo 5, like really? Why can't people understand that both consoles can have great exclusives that are quality titles with great sales. It doesn't have to be a competition. Peace and Gaming.
What games have YOU come up with? I love to hate fanboys. How someone can think they're better than someone else because they own a different video game console is quite hilarious. "poor Ps3 lames" I would need to live a very sad life to ever utter a statement like that. Even online where the fanboys hide behind an avatar and think they're the sh*t! Keep it up Broken. I get entertained for free, you waste precious minutes of your life coming up with crap like this.
@JBroken How's the lineup looking for 360 exclusives next year? Oh... right.
@JBroken Comparing sales from GT5 Prologue? That game isn't even a full game and it launched at a time when the PS3 had a very small install base. I, for one, don't own GT5 Prologue and plan on purchasing GT5. Think. If you are thinking, think harder.
@Broken, dude, way to make all us 360 owners look like jerks. You're not helping the cause a$$hole, so unless you can say something positive, GTFO.
get out of this 360 article you butthurt fanboy. wait, all of you get out.
@Mcnablejr Bubbled you down for a personal attack. I'll hang out in whichever articles I please, just like everyone else on N4G. If you want to get mad at someone get mad at JBroken for provoking everyone here.
He's like that because the only good FPS exclusive on 360 is Halo. And he has good reason to be defensive, it's a good game.
The fact that you compared a DEMO to a Halo game should say enough..
Oh so now Halo 3 ODST is a real game and GT5 Prologue is just a demo? It's hard for me to keep it all straight with all the goalpost moving and convenient redefining of terms. Who cares? They are both going to be great games in their respective genres.
On a single platform ;-)
,.. lol ,.. maybe not in first month,.. but still ,.. gt5 will sell crazy,.. It's a billion dollar franchise,.. I know non-gamers who are waiting to buy ps3 for Granturismo,..(that actually surprised me) You have no clue what Gt does to people,.. Non-racing game fans start to look for cheap deals for wheels ,.. Maybe because it is a single exclusive 360 has,.. O and gears next year,.. People need to play something don't they,.. and Reach is actually a good game ,..
And Halo says goodby! No way GT5 will outsell Halo THIS YEAR even if you are talking worldwide. Lifetime it has a small chance however. And agreed, Black Ops is actually gonna thrash them both.
@bmw69,only time will tell if gt5 will outsell halo @rekof,same
call of the giant dootie sucks and it is unfortunate the people that play it cause they don't know what a real game is then again halo isnt great either but call of dooit is an embarrassment to games
the biggest game of the year is going to be the game that everyone is going to be playing on multiplatforms.which is black ops.halo reach is the biggest game on the xbox
even tho call of dootie sucks i must agree
"halo reach (estimated) 4,250 M" halo will surpassed this mark easily... mark my words.
You mean biggest game for the 360 of the year.
Why do you even bother? You only have one bubble.
And this is why he only has one bubble...he trolls in EVERY SINGLE Halo, Kentic, MS thread. Why hate on a system you never owned? Do you work for Sony?
have the feeling this halo will sell better than previous halo's in the post release category.
Arg tuesday can't come soon enough.
I bet you'll be doing the FIST PUMP all the way to Ebgames! lmao.
im crap at multiplayer though....
http://a.imageshack.us/img8... how can somebody disagree with that...i dare you...answer me boy lol
lol i kid.
You lucky man, you get to play it on the weekend.
Hell yeah. I can't wait.
now this MUST prove that halo Reach is the best game ever made
Your comment proves that that you're insecure and butthurt.
Wow, that was dry!
it isn't about sales. if so, then MW2 is the best game ever.
How many did MW2 sell? I can't remember. Hopefully reach will sell more. Bungie has a rep for polished games.
Pacman! Imagine how Pacman would look on PS3 if it wasn't gimped for the Atari 2600!!!
Umm, no. By that logic I think that Super Mario Bros 1 must be the best game ever made. If I remember correctly that sold over 40 million copies :P (Although I see the possible sarcasm in your statement ;) @Sinclaircrown: Did the GT5 prologue sell that much? O.o Can you give a link to these numbers? I need some numbers to jerk off to :)
Also Cliff, GT5 Prologue sold over 4 million copies. So technically, GT5 isn't out yet and its sold more copies than Reach which comes out next week. FYI, I can't wait for Reach, I also can't wait to shoot down more fanboys in flames! :) I kid I kid... but seriously.
halo 3 odst has sold 5.5 million copies so add that onto halo 3's 11 million and halo 3 has sold 16.5 million copies.
that 4 million people bought a $60 expansion pack proves the sales have nothing to do with the quality.
Halo 3: ODST was still great.
ODST was a really good game. It's similar to how I feel about Heavenly Sword--it was a great game that I wished was longer, but in the end I am not going to miss out on a really great game just because it is too short.
From 1 360 owner to another: Dumb comment, thats like saying Smallville's ratings make it an excellent tv show. No f%cking way buddy.
Who gets to decide if Smallville is a good series or not? It's a matter of taste. Is my dad wrong because he loves Smallville? No, he's not. It's a subjective thing. Obviously for the people who buy and watch Smallville it IS an excellent tv show. I hate people like you who think just because you have some opinion about something that it's a fact that everybody else has to agree with.
I hope that was sarc, cliff.
Cliff is a rabid PS3 fanboy so take a guess.
And you're a rabid 360 fanboy.
just pre-empting the obvious
fellas, fellas. can't we all just appreciate xg-ei8ht's avatar?
WAT. That's really, ALOT of pre-orders.
Thats almost unbelievable, good for bungie, this games looks like its better than any of their previous efforts.
This is Halo, right?
The game is practically at 2 million US preorders right now. Its been going up 200,000 preorders a week and was at 1.7 million on the 4th with 10 days to go. Right now the game has more US preorders than MW2 did at this time. By launch it will probably be the biggest launch on one platform ever. Black Ops of course will sell more on all platforms combined no doubt and break sales records. It is a shame people didn't learn after MW2 and will be bitching by February the game sucks but most will continue to play it and hate it.
That is a staggering amount of pre-orders.
And will be even more impressive becuz its only on one platform and not 3 like mw2
Tuesday. What the hell is keeping you so damn long. X( Gosh, I hope Reach surpasses Modern Disappointment 2 on the 360. A well made game DESERVES more success than a broken, rushed moneybasket.
it will sell more on xbox than mw did but not counting all platforms
I know when to see a success. The people at Bungie really are talented and I'm glad that this will do well. They deserve it! Like it or not, they've revolutionized console gaming in incredible ways. I can't wait to see the world they invent next.
Remember guys this game is only on the 360 and has surpassed over 2 million worlwide,so do not compare it to Black Ops since that game is multiplatform. For a game only for the 360 reaching over 2 million pre-orderes, im suprised. 4 more days! :)
There are alot of games that don't even sell 2 million, and this game has that much in pre order. I guess the xbox isn't doomed after all. I figure since valve call the 360 a train wreck, that we were doomed for sure
Well, he actually called Xbox Live a train wreck and it's obvious that he said it because he doesn't like the fact that they can't get a piece of it.
360 just won 2010 by miles!
