IGN: According to the latest data provided by market research group NPD, U.S. sales for Halo: Reach for its launch month hit 3.3 million copies sold.
3.3Mil in the US alone, man those are impressive numbers. Halo actually has pretty long legs as well (as seen by Halo 3 regularly charting in the top 20) so expect it to do well over its lifetime.
The only other games that beat it were available for more than one platform. It's the biggest exclusive launch in 2010. Good for Bungie, going out with a bang.
damn just only 3.3 millions on the u.s. bought an xbox 360 because of halo. ;)
@blackcat- that's pretty sad man. the 360 has a lot of other games to offer other than just halo. but i guess its up to you.
What was UC2 sales numbers? "On 28 September 2010, Naughty Dog announced the title had now sold 3.8 million worldwide." http://en.wikipedia.org/wik... Nice!
So basically in one years time UC2 has sold 3.8 million worldwide while in one months time in the US alone Reach sold 3.3 million. That is pretty nice.
That is pretty amazing yes. The fact that Xbox users would buy essentially the same game over and over again in such larger numbers and do it with such enthusiasm is extremely amazing, yes. Oh snap! lol
Longrod give it up. You tried trolling and got your butt walloped lol. Just take it and live to fight another day. *hands you tissues* :)
God of War III just passed 3 mil as well worldwide. Only took 7 months.
It should be interesting to see the difference in numbers on Black ops cross platform and just on the 360. I don't know why but I do think reach will be a lot bigger on the 360 than Black ops.
I'd debate with you that your numbers per period of time don't add up but you're out of bubbles.....darn :D
For those wondering, VGChartz gave it higher numbers. About 10-ish% more. Bear in mind that NPD also has a 10 +/- on their charts as well.
ill pick it up sometime
get any of that? No!? Well then why the fuck are you telling us then. Its like telling me Bill Gates made 20 million yesterday. Why the fuck would I care?
why do we care how much an athlete makes? Why do we care how many seats were sold in a game? Simple: people like knowing. Everything has a stat.
how much an athlete is paid because they are on the team that I buy tickets/jerseys for. They affect the outcome of the teams success. Knowing how much money Microsoft and Bungie got from Reach doesn't make the game better. If a shitty player on my hometeam is overpaid then he takes away money to get better players. If Halo made 100000 or 3 il the game will never change. PS Who cares how many seats are sold in a game?
with your logic, i could easily make this kind of statement... i would like to know how many units halo reach sold, cause it is on the console that i buy games for, and it effects the success of the halo franchise (whether or not ms/bungie would think about making more halo games) now with that said...everything nowadays, whether we care or not (ps, stock/shareholders would care for these numbers), and theres really nothing we can do about it...if "you" dont care for the numbers, then dont waste time reading about them, simple as that
if you dont care why do sales of halo make you so butthurt.
thats pretty damn low though when you look worldwide and its only sold 4.5 mil total and pokemon white black is at 4 milion in japan only
How many PS3 exclusives are at 3.3ml and above within half a month?
didn't realize people think of the ps3 when pokemon is brought up.
We have a winner!
@core prolly wasnt the case...the way i see it, one person downplayed halo numbers, other person sees him as a ps fan (cause nintendo fans really dont cause too much trouble) so he had to downplay ps as a whole lol
Sure, Halo is nothing compared to the huge Nintendo franchises (Mario, Wii Sports, Pokemon etc). But it's pretty damn good for what it is. Great game imo.
Am sorry but Wii sports doesn't count it's given free with consoles and when people try to compare it to games that sell on there own merit it's retarded. And Actually halo doesn't sell all that much worse then Mario if you want to run the numbers.
Dude, NSMB Wii sold like 18 million, Nintendogs sold over 20 million, all Pokemon games sell a lot, Mario Kart Wii sold over 20 million, Wii Play also sold more than 15 million. Sales don't determine quality, but like I said, Halo is nowhere near as big as the big Nintendo franchises.
especially when you consider that halo reach sold 3.2 million in half a month in only america, while God of war 3 took 6 months to sell that worldwide.
2 games to 1 though
Yea it didnt sell as well as Angry Birds in the same time frame. Its a failure when you dont compare it to any other $60 game.
Wow, for being a single system game, and not being out very long, very impressive and bungie is the type of company who deserves it
Whats the worldwide sales, 3.3 isnt amazing at all unless its backed by amazing worldwide sales
and its not only 4.5 mil \ and gt 5 is going to double those numbers
Dude GT5 ain't even going to half them numbers every none moron in the universe knows this it's only die hard PS3 fanboy's that pretend otherwise. You name me a single racer that's gone big numbers lately, GT used to be awesome when consoles couldn't handle shooters well nowa days shooters are king and racers are second rate. This ain't the PS2 era and GT5 is past it's day, not saying it's not going to be an amazing game it could be better then Halo Reach with it's development time it better be. . But there's no way in hell it's going to outsell Halo nota chance in hell of that happening.
It'll give Reach a run for its money sure; if it ever comes out.
3.3 million is quite amazing for only one region North America and only being in one console plus it's only for 2 weeks not 1 whole month. Also NPD doesn't count bundles and the Xbox 360 Halo Reach bundle was always high up in most online stores like amazon. Anyways as for worldwide sales there is no official numbers but VGChartz yeah I know not really reliable but it's pretty much all their is has it at 5.28 million copies in 3 weeks. http://www.vgchartz.com/gam...
what the hell are u blabing on about.. whens the last PS3 game that EVER hit those numbers.
never because we have more then 2 games to play =) o yes please disagree haha cause its FACT..
Sad, you brought up ps3 not me, I never said it wasnt good as domestic sales just wouldnt say everything is fine and dandy until the worldwides are released. As an avid halo fan, day one on every game from combat evolved through to reach, I felt Reach didnt actually acheive the standard it was hyped up to, and by a much bigger bar than halo 3, Its not the master cheif thing either, the halo 3 universe was better. Im not saying it done bad, Jus saying I wont say its done great based on US figures alone, purely because of the games own shortcomings. You can disagree and call me a ps3 fanboy but I have played ALL halo games, Combat evolved almost religiously lol, and personally expected more from the swansong. Debubble me if you must, but its my opinion, and as an avid fan I know its a valid one too
@initial_Kay woah...wait..you couldn't have possibly said something as stupid as that....i can't...wa....you know what. I won't even bother.
sold 3.3 million in 12 days. haha crazy
no other single platform game has ever beat that. mw2 on 360 didnt beat it with 5 days or so more on the market
I thought the campaign was pretty weak with some strange ace combat sections that were really weak. I'm surprised people are so in love with it, I thought it was more or less the same game I played 10 years ago on Xbox. Whatever floats your boat I guess.
Well, it sold as much as god of war n look how long thats been out.sad just sad
shouldn't be too sad. both are fantastic games but one has a great multiplayer while the other has none at all. what's sad is people that still use the word hater (hataz), lol i bet you still say hella. haha
LOOOOOOOOOL Biggest Sony exclusive didnt even sold 2.5M WW and Reach did 3.3M in U.S alone... ROFL LMAO
your name is Gears of War 3 and Nathan Drake is your avatar? and whats this "Biggest Sony exclusive"? you speak of?
is the only great game from MS that you can't get anywhere else. Whereas PS3 owners got GOW3, Heavy Rain, GT5 coming this year, the Sly Collection etc... See my point? There is more to choose from because, you now, the best games aren't shooters.
true...more to choose from, but you see the slight flaw in that comment? not everyone is even bothering to play most of those games (judging by the sales) and i am in no way commenting on the quality of the games, just that majority of the ps3 gamers arent playing most of other games...in fact, im pretty sure shooters are topping ps3 online charts as well, prolly not as bad as xbox live charts, but still i bet the majority are shooters
Exactly! It kills me how PS3 fans act like shooters aren't even played on their console. Shooters are the most dominating genre this generation and I honestly don't have a problem with it.
You think GT5 is coming this year, lol. Hold onto that preorder buddy.
@heavenly Fable 3 and Alan Wake say hi! :)
PS3 can't do those kind of numbers. Only on the 360
so it sold 2.7 million on day 1 and then sold 0.6 million for the rest of the month?.
2.7 million on day one worldwide. This is just NPD right now. It's probably sold a lot more than 3.3 million units WW. And this only counts the 2 weeks that it was out in September. Those sales are monster.
it sold over 3 million day 1 WW. it made over 200 million with most sale given 60x3 = 180 so the other version made up the last 20 million or so
Good for you Bungie :)
honestly guys think about it.. every 360 owner has ben anticipating reach since its reveal in E3 09... .. splinter cell barely did anything and alan wake floped in sales. tho's 2 games i mentioned,despite bieng great games,didnt catch the attention of 360 owners that much. so now think about it.. theres ben like 6 ps3 games since begining of 2010.. its alot to digest for any gamer. thats why all these ps3 games sell like a few mill,cuz theres ALOT of games. thers hardly any great games for the 360 anymore... dont get me wrong theres still great games for it but not nearly as many as the ps3. .. imho i think the sales so far are good but not Halo 3 good.. 4.5 mill world wide isnt to good compared to halo 3 i think.. .... i at least think it could of done better. i still know alot of halo friends of mine that are holding off on buying it cuz thier friends have it. its all imo so flame all you want and attack me for what ever reason but just shows how low you go. :)
Mass Effect 2, Splinter Cell, Alan Wake, Crackdown 2, Halo Reach are all major 360 exclusives released this year, with Fable 3 still to come. Compare this to MAG, Heavy Rain and God of War 3 are the major PS3 exclusives released this year, with GT5 to come (probably). That's 6 exclusives to 4, so I don't know where you got that "PS3 has alot more games" analogy from.
rofl PS3 fanatics, they still dont realize 360 has much better online gaming and gets the best version of 95% of games either. At least you have blu ray.
Really, how so? Is the servers more stable? Is it less laggy? What about variety, do you have that too? -End statement
it out did halo 3's launch WW and has outsold halo 3 in america thus far. that makes me think its doing better then halo 3. vgchartz also has it outselling halo 3 by 350k copies so far. so were are u getting ur numbers.
mass effect 2 and splinter cell passed 2 million. Fable will pass 3 million
I tought uc sold 1 mil ww lol
It sold 1 mil this year and 2+ mil last year smartass..
wow that so amazing....not
Yeah I don't really understand it. I was extremely disappointed by the campaign and everything else just wasn't that fun. Whatever, there are people who love games like this but can't understand why games like Gran Turismo can do better. lol
Wow. Awesome sales. Lets go play em'.
Now with cod and kinect coming...
