GamerMetrics Predicts Halo 3 Sales of 4 Million In First Two Months

IGN has released a detailed GamerMetrics report specifically focused on Halo 3. GamerMetrics analyst Nick Williams predicts that Halo 3 will sell more than 4 million units in the US alone within the first two months of launch, and that Halo 3's sales in five weeks will "almost double" the total sales of Gears of War, which holds the current record as the fastest-selling video game title. Williams says Halo 3 will "more than likely" break into the top ten best-selling video games of all time.

Williams also expects Halo 3 to drive "significant" Xbox 360 sales during the holiday season and to have a long-lasting impact beyond the launch weekend because of the game's addictive multiplayer features. "Microsoft finds itself in the position of serving arch-rival Sony a devastating blow as it looks to build its lead in the next-gen console wars," said Williams.

lol dont worry hopefully their smart and the trolls direct their anger at the story not you.

there has already been a story of 3 mil in 2 weeks. do we really need another story. whats next, 5 mil in 4 months? 6 mil in 8 months? this seems kind of redundant. would like some variety in the stories.
and i have no anger, halo is a big game and is gonna sell. everyone knows this. do we really need this repeating of predicted numbers?

We'll see, if any game can do it, it's HALO. Gears sold 2 million copies in it's first 6 weeks, HALO 3 has a larger fan base, & the the most anticipated video game release in console gaming history. What will be more interesting will be to see is how long it takes Halo 3 to overtake Gears multiplayer on XBL.

Multi player is off the hook in Halo and the Co-op feature is a smash hit on XBL, 4 players acting like a small squad!; I mean come on people played Geow's story mode 5-10 times or more just because they could jump in and help people and show off. If you dissagree you know nothing so stop hating.

Co=op will set this game apart from past Halo's.
