Halo might not be as popular worlwide as it is in the United States.

halo 3 unlike halo1 /2 couldnt even hold on to the charts of EU for just 2 weeks!!!!

Halo 1 /2 remained no1 in the UK chart for a month/2.

HALO 3 couldnt make it for the 2nd week even.

HALO 3 sells only among the die hard fans of x360 as the graphics are ver bland compared to competition

People seems non caring since the ps3 price is going down and a much bigger eu oriented game like FIFA 08 has been launched.

with PES 2008 ps3 will fully capture EUROPE + the starter pack would also be slashed from 425 pounds to just 350 pounds.

10th OCTOBER seees the end of format war in EU.

Halo had a whole lot of hype. Am suprised it wasnt number 1 worldwide. However its the UK and fifa and pro evo will easily outsell halo anyday

Different Market, Different People, Different appealing. Halo is not so good in here. Where I live there has been nothing about Halo. Even on Italien TV I never saw X360 Ad only PS3 Adverts.

Also Pic below shows a very big difference between US and Europe.

wahahhahahahaaaaa... I'm in US, but i found that's funny

LMAO that so true u deserve a bubble for that

Valik214116d ago

You speak truth indeed, i'm also living in Italy but i'm originally from eastern europe, i don't want to say that alla americans are fat, but there are a lot more fat people tha here in europe, especially the east part.
And i see here little influence of the 360, i saw a larger space dedicated for the ps3 tha for the 360 in mediaworld.

Looks like just the yanks go crazy about Power Rangers

Lightning Mr Bubbles4117d ago

yeah, I see what you mean. Master Chief is some hero who eats, sleeps, and craps in a green armored suit. Very dramatic... NOT

More like very gay and unrealistic.

gtgcoolkid4117d ago

When is Pro Evo coming out, because that will be a monster as well in the EU.
