i cant belive this O.O

Jesus they're nice sales, and that's just for US and UK...

Add me on Playstation Network and Nintendo Network: Bristow9091

Just make sure to put who you are in the message!

hm, yea in the US week 1 is ~1.2m units lower than MW3 (-870k 360; -350k PS3; -27k PC) - that's about 19% less



Noone should be surprised by this.

You can only milk a series for so long.

I LOVE ICELAND!

Halo 4 took some sales sure, but the franchise had to decline at some point later literally years and years of gains.

___________

System defining games (over 70 on metacritic) not on the other. IMO these are the system sellers that matter. No amount of PS4 selling can take this away.

2013: Forza 5, Dead Rising 3, Killer Instinct > Killzone Shadowfall

2014: Titanfall, Sunset Overdrive, Project Spark, Forza Horizon 2, Master Chief Collection > Infamous SF, Drive Club, Little Big Planet 3, Last of Us (IMO lacking in content compared to MCC).

Many people are switching to the Wii U for this game, that's why sales for the other versions are down.

Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

Biased reviews are a pleasure to read. Just my opinion, of course.

Good. Hope the whole franchise falls flat on its ass within a couple of years, its really gone to shit.

End of 2015 hardware sales:

Wii U: 12.1 million. PS4: 35.5 million. One: 20.7 million. 3DS: 59 million. PSVita: 11.6 million.

CoD is not my cup of tea, but I admit it's a good game, and I don't "hate" it. But I'm still happy it seems it's starting to decline, it can only be positive to the industry if this becomes less popular and a wider diversity of games could became mega-sellers.

Game of the year 2014:

5. Dragon Age: Inquisition
4. Infamous Second Son
3. Donkey Kong Country: TF
2. Bayonetta 2
1. Far Cry 4
