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.

___________

Pretend Exclusive: A 3rd party multiplat, that releases for multiple consoles in the same window, in which all press showings and marketing are catered to only one console. Exclusive console bundles, being the lead platform, as well as timed exclusive/exclusive  betas and game content also strengthen the claim. The final effect is that the uninformed gamer will be convinced that the version primarily advertised is the only and/or best place to experience the game.

X1: Titanfall, COD: AW.    PS4: Watch Dogs, Destiny

Xbox E3 Exclusives: Halo MCC, Crackdown 3, Phantom Dust, Scalebound, Dance Central Spotlight

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.

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.
