Forums - Gaming Discussion - GT5 passes Halo Reach in global lifetime sales!

With the new updated sales number, Gran Turismo 5 is at 10.42 million.  GT5 is almost 1 million ahead of Halo Reach which is at 9.43 million.

Can GT5 pass the best selling Halo game which is Halo 3 (currently at 11.77).  I think GT5 can get close by this holiday season, but the sales are going to drop off quickly with GT6 and PS4 release.

I thought Halo 3 was at like 14 million.

Atto Suggests...:

Book - Malazan Book of the Fallen series 

Game - Metro Last Light

TV - Deadwood

Music - Schoolboy Q (try Studio or Man of the Year)

not surprising with heavy bundle and scripted gameplay

linear corridor, etc

Which game is this referring to?

I think it can make it. Even now PS2 games are still selling. PS3 games will go on for a while.

There really isn't that much of a competition.  If you are trying to start a fan war, bravo because you will achieve it.  But Halo has been a much bigger franchise all generation.
