Oh suuure with all the adverts and media on this game I excepted 5mil min in 5 days.

Tell me when it sells more then Wii Sport and Nintendo Dogs.

Just out of curiosity how many copies did wii sports and nintendo dogs sell in the 1st 5 days of release? 3.83 million is a very good number for Halo considering it isn't even the holiday season yet!

CRIMS0N_W0LF4037d ago

Halo = America only.

Holiday Season? Master Chief won't do anything against the warth of Wii this Holiday Season. Halo 3 was released too early to have massive impact on holiday season.

DrRage774037d ago

are you completely dense? this article SPECIFICALLY says that Halo3 sold more copies in the first 5 days than any other game in, is that really too hard for you to comprehend??

again, this article is about games sold in the first 5 days....why do you have to try to compare it to a game that has been out for much longer than that? and just as someone pointed out, um, how many copies did wii sports and nintendo dogs sell in the first 5 days?????? probably not close to 3.83 million COMBINED...

It may not have sold 5 million in 5 days, but I'll give it about 10 days.

Is there any other game released that could even come close to that though? The quick answer is no.

Isn't that the game that came prepackaged with the Wii? so I guess that would mean none of them were actualy sod but given away, this is Halo copies sold not given with the 360.

the actual source of these figures are VGChartz who are only guessing. Wait until official numbers are released before jumping to conclusions.

So thats about one Halo3 game for every PS3 sold?

Rockstar4037d ago

You're very good at math young paduan!

fredy4037d ago

take a million out of Ps3 units sold and you see how well this game has done in 5 days.

i might even be a little too generous..

this game will set the bar for opening sales on consoles..

Now Halo 3 software gets compared to hardware LOW. Just take a magic marker and read carefully: it can be black, white, fusia, green, whatever your flavor. I want you to take that magic marker and write this on your 360......"HALO 3"...really big so your mama can see it. On the back put "4 EVA, bungie please come back". You could have said it outsold the ring of death or the population of Whichata. You give Halo a bad name.

Excellent Halo 3 sales!!!!!!!!

So now it's between the Wii and the 360, interesting.

Ignorant Fanboy4037d ago

PS3 isnt even in th race.

What do PS3 fangirls have to say about it?

"BLU-ray outsells HD-dvd" Thats about all they got.

PS3 never was in the race...

Oncnawan4037d ago

"PS3 never was in the race..."

While I don't agree with you entirely, I find it amusing that this statement is even somewhat tenable, given Sony's bold assertions before the PS3 launch. Claims that the 360 is competing with the PS2 and that the next-gen starts when Sony says so make Sony's current position the very definition of a cruel irony.

3830000 * minimum 60$ each is....a big freakin number.:)

i'm one of them!
