[GI] Halo 3 has outsold PS3 exclusives combined - Page 11

post #101 of 146
Not entirely surprised. Halo 3 was a good game, although the storyline still left me hanging.

Actually people hate halo because of the average age level of a halo player.

Yeah, when it gets more fun to play the campaign than online, it's time to move on.

I feel sad for this thread....and some of the people in it.

I love the halo story, played all the games, and read all the books.
I hate playing online, only reason is because I suck at it...

It just goes to show you that the PR team on MS side does a way better job of promoting their system then the Sony side.
With 500k people playing Halo everyday, Sony would wished that 500k people bought games for their system lol.

I'd like to see actual numbers. And if it is only the North American market, then this is a pretty dumb thing to boast about considering Sony is huge in Japan and China.

Halo 2 was the pinnacle of my gaming career (I don't game as much anymore @ 21).

I don't think i have ever had more fun in a video game, playing online with friends was awesome, i would still but its not like it used to be where "everyone" had an xbox/xbl and are readily available to game.

All the power to halo 3, the online component has only gotten better and it's well worth the price of admission for how much entertainment it offers. I can't believe that everyone here thinks that its Hype>Merits.

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"...
Erm, thats not the point. Resistance was released almost a year before Halo 3. The point is that the single franchise has outsold 6 other franchises. All of which are GOTY (they aren't all actually GOTY, but they sold similar numbers) type games.

I like how there are so many Halo haters out there. What part of Halo don't you like? Is it the online stats system, the screenshots you can take, how about the replays and videos you can share with your friends? Don't like the swell gameplay balance? Maybe they should add a noob cannon like in MW2 so you can actually kill an enemy player. How about the game customization? You don't like the ability to edit any map into your own game style? I guess you must not fancy being able to invent new gameplay modes on the fly!

Halo 3 blows the competition completely out of the water. There is no FPS game that even comes close to it in terms of quality and fun. Not one.

Because they would rather play a fast paced arcade game, that's why.

I know people have stated about the average of Halo players, but Party chat (or mute ) gets cleanly around this.
