[GI] Halo 3 has outsold PS3 exclusives combined

post #1 of 146

Quote:
Microsoft's Aaron Greenberg has said that according to NPD data, sales of Bungie's Halo 3 have outsold the combined sales of six PlayStation 3 exclusives.

"Just in from research team (NPD): Halo 3 has outsold Resistance 1 + 2, Uncharted 1 + 2, Killzone 2 and God of War III combined... wow," he said on Twitter.

Greenberg didn't elaborate on the actual numbers, which would be for the North American market only.

Greenberg is one of the most vocal members of the public-facing Xbox team, and isn't adverse to talking directly about competitors and their business models where more senior executives might be a little more subtle.

At the end of last year he criticised Sony's business model, calling increased sales a "short term bump" and questioning the sustainability of selling consoles at a loss.

Doesn't surprise me that it outsold resistance, uncharted or killzone but when they add in god of war 3? wow.

Isn't that like the ps3 exclusive?

Lets not forget that PS3 has lost several exclusives this generation (GTA4 & Final fantasy) and playstations biggest exclusive (Gran turismo) hasn't even released yet.

Good for MS. That still doesn't make it a good game.

i hate halo so much, its just a bad game and i have played it alot
that was even before i had my PS3, it was utter bad on xbox and on PC

idk how people can honestly play that game its just so bad

battlefield bad company 2 blows it out of the water by a lot
even modern warfare is 1000% better than Halo crap


the real good MS game is gears of war, thats just a sick game 1000% better than Halo

Wasn't, like, Halo3 released when the 360 was released too? And it was released before the PS3?

And the fact that the 360 was cheaper than the PS3...

and the fact that Halo3 was the only half decent game to play online (that is, if you could support the hyperjumps and kids spitting in their mics yelling at how noob you are with the RPG) for quite a while.

And the fact that some people probably bought the same game a few times because of scratched disks.

And what about LANs and stuff?

I guess you get the point now...



It's like if people would come and say "ZOMG STARCRAFT OUTSOLD *insert borderline shady recent game here* HOW SURPRISING"...
