Interesting data. I think your trend analysis is spot on., but I don't think a NextBox release would chop off Halo 4 because Halo 2 remained very popular up to and beyond Halo 3's release.

I predict lifetime sales of 12.5 million for Halo 4 and 11.0 million for Gran Turismo 5.

Im actually wondering if Halo 4 would get a re-release on the next Xbox. Might be nice. 



Yay!!!

I vote GT5 to win since I don't see Halo 4 selling too much over 10m.

I'm pretty confident that Halo 4 will sell worse than Reach. Halo Reach's legs were considerably worse than Halo 3's legs. Halo Reach was selling about identical to Halo 3 for about 60 weeks. After that, Reach's sales came to a crawl in comparison to Halo 3. With Reach having relatively weak legs, there's nothing to suggest that Halo 4 will have legs comparable, let alone higher, than Halo 3's legs. Especially with the Nextbox rumored to release next year. That gives Halo 4 only one year to sell to the primary Xbox console. After that first year, I expect Halo 4's legs to drop in comparison to Reach, and especially Halo 3. I'm not saying it's going to have shit legs. But in comparison to Reach, which had three years to sell on the primary Xbox, I'm expecting Halo 4's legs to be a bit lower.

And GT5 is undertracked.

That bits funny.

Anyway - Considering GT5 is undertracked here by a considerable number, and Halo seems to be undertracked too... Id advise waiting until we get adjustments on SW after the Holidays.

Im leaning towards GT5. Already sitting at ~9 Million. Will continue to have great legs into a new generation. Hasnt been replaced with a new mainline game 2 Years after release.

life time sales
GT5 easily, only an idiot (capital I) will say halo

All bow to me the VGChartz current reigning 3DS prediction champion 

 Bet with tbone51: Pokeon X & pokemon Y will not sell more than 8 million in 2013

July 2009 daveJ saidTrue the wii has a large lead now but by 2017 the most likely result will be 1. ps3 2. xbox360 3. wii <-- wii's successor launched in 2011 effectively killing sales of the wii

 2009 daveJ said: The wii will not break the 50% marketshare barrier it will go below the 40% marketshare barrier though in the future. VGChartz members: Impossible, youre an idiot that knows nothing about sales

Halo will get close, but i don't see it outselling gran turismo 5



Idk I see GT5 snuggling right up there behind Halo 3 at around 11 mill ltd

 

Edit: Halo 4 is NOT going to "catch" GT5 in 2013
