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
Halo: Reach is gonna be a BEAST for an exclusive
I can't wait to read the excuses from a certain group of loyalist when GT5 doesn't beat Halo 3's sales numbers nor when it doesn't beat Halo: Reach's numbers. After years of "GT5 will outsell Halo" comments I can't wait that the final results will be coming in soon.
GT5 is going to at the very least match reach's sales. GT games sell extremely well.
Only when there is no competition in the market and an install base of 100 million consoles. Now there are only about 35 million PS3 on the market and the GT series has a lot of competition. GT sales went significantly down once other competitors started releasing racing games and the Genre became saturated. Don't fool yourself thinking the racing Genre is at the same level as the shooting genre. Shooters have a HUGE tendency of selling more than racers.
Halo 3 sold over 10 mill when its install base was only about 22 mil. I'm not a racing fan whatsoever, but anyone who loves cars and racing games will choose GT over any other series. Prologue alone sold almost 4 mil, and it was nowhere near a complete game.
I must say there isn't as much hype for Reach as there was for MW2. That said MS hasn't begun advertising and Reach will still be the fastest selling game this year. @pixelsword MS owns Halo so not advertising it would hurt them not Bungie, plus MS did choose to let Bungie go so I doubt they hate them for doing their own thing.
I wouldn't rely on Microsoft advertising just yet: I can't see Microsoft rewarding Bungie for going on their own myself, although I do not know the current relationship of the two companies to be honest.
If one game can be said to have long legs, It'll be Halo: Reach; besides, pre-orders do not an order make, everyone: remember that Killzone 2 had over one million pre-orders in Europe, but the pre-orders didn't match the sales: http://www.1up.com/do/newsS... but even so, Killzone 2 still sold very well. So just take it easy, and wait until a little reality hits.
HI GUYS!!! I seriously dont like shooters...but as a CONSOLE fan(yes I own ALL three) I have an obligation to enjoy what could possibly be one of the best titles on the 360 call me an idiot for wanting to get a piece of the action!
It's a great couch game, and system link game. You don't have to shoot - you can brawl from first person if you really want :) Or drive... or fly, etc.
Copies of Halo Reach instead of 20 million. In all honesty who cares which game had the most pre-orders? MW2 is a fine game for what it is and Halo games always sell well, even ODST which was basically a expansion pack was in the top 10 for sales last year. So of course Reach is going to do very well as well. I pre-ordered my copy a while ago. Some people might think it's played out, but this is really only it's 4th true game. Also Halo games give you the most bang for your buck so to speak, because the online community stays active and very large for years and years, I mean Halo 3 is three years old and still has like a million people a day on it.
I used to love watching angel---the good ole days of TV lol
This is an obivious article, do they actually think "Halo:Reach: [Crud] will sell more than "modern warfare 2" [awsomeness] on the 360? Fail article.
All articles are obviously articles, it's the intentions of the article that may not readily be obvious. ;) Just giving you a hard time.
Starcraft 2 is gonna sell big. Probably 3-4 million in its first week :p
Holy ****. MoH is right below Black Obs with a 4 weeks longer release.
I don't do the pre-order thing. I usually wait until the game releases to get it.
lol Crysis 2 is at 50th position . by the way I'm one of these guys here !. 5 . Medal of Honor PS3 26,037 176,100
Go StarCraft II.
Halo Reach will destroy Halo 3's record of most sales in the first week. Halo is a beast and will destroy the competition. No wonder games like Killzone stay away from its release.
Because that's the systems shooter. Since xbox I advised SONY along time ago to pick up the COD Series before it came to Consoles. Because i'd played cod1&2 on pc and knew it would sell well on console, also told them to stay away from crysis as exclusive, Because Mp was crap. Imagine if SONY had picked up COD exclusive. Same as GT5 is Sony's Racer. 10mill+ Kinda like if you love Nascar, only one place for it GT5. There is no other car game anywhere near the same league. You'll see. You want gears you got xbox360 You want Uncharted you go PS3. Depends on taste.
