It's balling if most were sold at full price. What happened to ROtTR happened to Halo 5. It dropped in price real quick, as much as 50% off within the first month of release. 5 million is a great number, but previous Halos have done it quicker and at full price.

You're comparing a Halo today to Halo's that came out when there weren't as many shooters in the market

@Kemo are you trying to claim that there was less shooters then there is today back when the 1st Halo's came out? Because if you are that's pretty silly

Doom, Division, Destiny, Overwatch, Battlefield, Call of Duty, Titanfall, etc

Your joking, right???????

@samm your statement of there went as many shooters on the market when Halo came out is silly. When Halo first came out, the market was flooded with FPS ( Wolfenstein 3D, Doom, Call of Duty, Medal of Honor, Heretic, Hexen, Quake, Duke Nukem 3D, Team Fortress, Witchaven, Sin, Half-Life, GoldenEye 007, Redneck Rampage, Unreal, Unreal Tournament and so many more) . It sounds like you are making an excuse for the lack of H5's sales and blaming it all on the oversaturation of FPS's. Did it ever occur to you the reason H5 was the worst in the series is not because of the oversaturation, but the fact the game just was nothing like the others in the Halo series.

Oh, FYI...Division is a THIRD person shooter. But nice try there sparky.

Minecraft was already popular before Microsoft bought it.

Of course . at this moment halo 5 is probably 6-7 million while halo had to face black op 3 fallout4 & star war

DeadlyOreo2670d ago (Edited 2670d ago )

Halo 5 is probably 6-7 million? Where on earth do you Xbox guys get your figures from? It sold no where near that amount, it's not rocket science or fanboyish to see that. It hasn't been anywhere near a top 10 sales chart since the first week it came out lol.

DARK_WOLF2670d ago

Its in the top selling list quite a lot and best rated on the xbox digital store. A huge majority of halo 5 sales are digital its probably alot higher than the 5mil it was merely 3 months after launch.

n4rc2670d ago

ugh.. welcome to this generation.. where if amazon charts doesnt say its on top, its obviously not selling anywhere else..

kids today... lol.. you do realize even NDP are estimates of retail stores, not exact total sales which only the developer/publisher know for sure

Doom campaign says Hi.

GrubsterBeater2670d ago (Edited 2670d ago )

The new Doom (single player) is so much better than Halo.

Movefasta19932670d ago

doom mp is traaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaash

badz1492670d ago

Halo 5 has 3 chapters where all you do is talk! of course Doom's campaign is better

EddieNX 2670d ago

Yh ok Halo 5's campaign is a little crappy... But it has by far the best multiplayer and modes out of all the FPS' games which makes it the undisputed king still. Overwatch doesn't even have a campaign lol

MachuchalBrotha3162670d ago (Edited 2670d ago )

Halo multiplayer says F...off. 😂

I agree Halo 5 is the best FPS right now on console. Lag ops 3 is such a disappointment

spicelicka2670d ago

Definitely the best multiplayer fps this gen.

XanderZane2669d ago

Definitely one of the best this generation. You can probably add Doom now as well. I need to get a copy of that game. Hopefully Gears of War 4 will be even better.

these are good numbers for just one platform

The numbers are fake... a more accurate figure is under 4 million and even then it is a generous estimate. As others note below, if the 5 m figure was indeed true, Microsoft would have been shouting about it on every website but they haven't.
