Estimate: Halo 3 Sells 2.48 Million Units On Day One

A little bit of digging and a little bit of math reveals that Halo 3 sold upwards of 2.5 million units on day one, according to GameDaily BIZ estimates. That's quite a haul, and the game looks like it didn't sell out to boot. More after the jump.

and 3million were returned the next day,lol.

Actually if we are to take the 33% return rate then that's 3.3 MIL+ already failed. And given the news about Halo 3 RRoDing more 360s. I'd say that that number is higher than 33% and more like 40% thus far.

Which means, 3-4 MORE MIL is on the horizon. Add the fact that some are on their 2-3rd 360s. I don't think that any number over 3MIL is far off.

tehcellownu3705d ago

i know there is a few hundred thousand returned back because of scratches in limited edition..and halo 2 sold about the same amount..lol.

**April 28
Sony CEI releases the Gran Turismo 3 A-spec video game for the PlayStation 2 in Japan. (One million copies sell in two days. Total lifetime sales: 11 million copies.)**

when a game series is popular like mario,pokemon,gt,and even halo,it will sell big first day.now halo3 has to outsell halo2 which is around 9.2 million copies sold.

not bad.i'll give them that.

FirstknighT3705d ago

hotshot12373705d ago (Edited 3705d ago )

anyway, we will truly find out how many 360's were truly sold with halo 3 because i know alot of people have doubles just incase the first one breaks.

Lets see now, all within 1 year SOny gets:
Heavenly Sword
R:FOM
Motorstorm
Warhawk
Haze
UT3
Uncharted
GT 5 Prologue
R&C:FTOD
Eye Of Judgment
Folklore
SingStar
Time Crisis 4
TimeShift

As opposed to 360 line up of almost 2 years
Gears of War
BioShock
Halo 3

OH WELL, whaday KNOW, all the 360 "great games" are shooter?? WOW, what a surprise there.
Come on xbot fanF*CKS, get real and open your damn eyes. You guys have been had for almost 2 yers now, with NO GAMES. you guys are the dumbest people that call themselves gamers.
Leader of the xbot idiots is Bladestar, followed by his zombie minnions:
FristKnight, PimpDaddy, NoBizLikeBlowBizz, and countless other dumbasses that dont know any better.
Just take a look at the list, and its pretty clear that 360 has just put smoke and mirrors infront of you simply minded, one brain cell zombie heads of yours.

THats right, you iditos cant come up with anything. HAHA, its been out for almost 2 years, as opposed to Sony, 10 months. So, STFU, and go play your Halo 3.

the ps3 did lauch on time..............WHEN IT WAS READY. the 360 launched EARLY. which is why you have the problems you have now. and this list what would be 4 times as big considering alot of games are multiplatform that werent mentioned. and alot of games come out in 1 year weather they be multi or exclusive. the 360 really didnt get true EXCLUSIVES, its just the ps3 didnt come out at the same time, so it missed the mark. because we all know smack down and nba and football games ALWAYS ARE MULTI PLAT

@POWER OF GREEN. SONY FANS GOING OVER THE TOP?????????

I GUESSS YOU MISSED ALL THE YOUTUBE VIDEOS AND ARTICLES AND LIES THAT GO ON THE INTERNET ABOUT PS3 AND ITS GAMES GOING TO OTHER SYSTEMS. HMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM IM SURE YOU MEANT TO PUT MICROSOFT FANBOYS

goodganja3705d ago

Firstnight. I sense insecurity in your blood. Deep down inside, you know that you secretly are anticipating a playstation 3 game that you wanna play.

Which one is it?

Daz3705d ago (Edited 3705d ago )

Whats the bet the next news post for halo 3 is trying to down play it? lol

Great game buy the way a forge is so much fun.

ShiftyLookingCow3705d ago

"Why Halo 3 Record Sales Won't Save Xbox 360?" from some efluxmedia.com which calls 360 obsolete simply because its already 2 years in the market. lol

Daz3705d ago (Edited 3705d ago )

Next news doing with halo not next comment lol so funny :/.
Whens a comment from some person on a forum news?

HateFanboys3704d ago (Edited 3704d ago )

The same way they do to the PS3? "This just in, the PS3 is DEAD, because it hasnt sold over the Wii or 360 in 9-10 months at $500-600!". Its all bullsh!t, did the GC or Xbox die last-gen when they only sold 20-something million vs the PS2's 120+ million? No! look at Nintendo, how many generations did they lose, and they are at the no.1 spot today. So shut it you two, cuz you's sounds like a bunch of fanboys.

Also, this article is just pure speculation, no hard facts, just some site estimating. And the thought that a accurate picture can be drawn based of one sole store chain is just pathetic. Are we as human that predictable, that if we do something on one store than everybody else is doing the same thing at a another store?

And p.s. the game aint that good. My roommate got it, and he barely plays it, and thinks it was a waste of $60 (plus tax). I can see just from his gamertag that he hasnt played it in days, and instead he was playing puzzle fighter last night instead. My other friend who comes over all the time, thinks its just "alright". And they made it all the way up to the 9th or tenth board on the 1st night my roommate got it. My other friend (that lives far away) has it too, and he's saying, "meh" about it. And i beat 2 boards (they are kind of short to btw) and i was not impressed. I though that the graphics were the best part, but the game itself, just doesnt feel that good. It just feels normal, nothing special.
