Don't know but November going to be a crazy month. I know both Microsoft and Activision going to be doing some serious marketing before and during November.

Have they stated that halo is november? I ask because the last few years it seems like the big microsoft shooter exclusives have been hitting in september.

Well duh, black ops 2 will sell's a popular franchise that sells millions every release, and it's multi-platform...

How is this even a question? Of course COD will outsell it 3:1 or even 4:1.

I'm talking about just on Xbox ;)

But then that's a completely pointless question still. Halo is a 360 exclusive and a MS flagship series franchise. COD is COD...nuff said. But on Xbox, Halo is still probably going to outsell COD at least 2:1 alone.

Still Black Ops 2 without question. Each year Call of Duty sells on Xbox, more than any other title out there with a small exception of a few Nintendo titles. Then combine that with the rest of the platforms, and people who think CoD will stop soon are delusional. It's unfortunate in my opinion, but it's true.

If we are talking only on the 360, Halo 4 has a great chance of outselling BlOps 2.

If you look at the past, Halo 3 sold 11.5 million copies.

COD4, on the 360, sold nearly 8.6 million copies.

Both games sold at nearly the same time in the same year.

In fact, it outsold MW2 as well on the 360.

The only COD game on the 360 it didn't outsell is MW3, but that is because no Halo game starring Master Chief was released at the same time as MW3.

I think it has a great chance of outselling it on the 360, as Chief has been gone for a while.

Halo fans are anxious to play as the Chief again.

There are a few different variables this time around though.

You have a new studio, a new direction, and it is against Treyarch which had 11 million in sales on the 360 with BlOps.

Time will tell.

halo is a big title and it was the biggest fps before CoD came along, Im not saying it will beat CoD in sales but it is quite a well known title.

InklingGirl3659d ago

Call of Duty of course, only idiots are going to buy it and forget about the superior game which is Halo 4.

Sales... COD... next question?

I'd still say cod, just because it's a title that hits a casual audience. Some players only own cod games. I can almost guarantee that halo owners are also fans of other games, but there are a lot of bros who just play cod.
