Just wait for NPD. We already have UK sales, we'll then be able to extrapolate roughly WW sales.

So if a game is sold for $80 on average, which is pretty high, because there are not many people aiming for a $250 statue and it "only" sold like 2 or 2.5 million it would look like this.

 

2 million copies of Halo 5 / 600,000 Halo consoles / 10,000,000 Req packs for $4 a piece --> every Halo player payed $80 for the game and paid an additional $15.3 for cosmetical skins (on average).

 

Does this look like a reasonable scenario for you?


The 45 million req packs are used req packs not purchased ones. At least 90% where earned for free. 



Halo MCC will sell 5+ million copies(including digital)

halo 5 will sell 10 million copies(including digital)

x1 will pass ps4 in USA, and UK.

It is time to summon "him".

This is just too good to be true, lol. I smell fishy.
Well, congrat Microsoft :D !!! After all of that Advertise i saw on TV, Internet, YouTube, it'd pay off after all :3.



What does that even mean?



“It appeared that there had even been demonstrations to thank Big Brother for raising the chocolate ration to twenty grams a week. And only yesterday, he reflected, it had been announced that the ration was to be reduced to twenty grams a week. Was it possible that they could swallow that, after only twenty-four hours? Yes, they swallowed it.”

- George Orwell, ‘1984’

$500,000 on REQ packs. Not much to be honest.

Also i did some math and if halo 5 bundles sold atleast 200k thats 100m and if controllers sold 100k thats 5 m 400m-105m is 295m and thats less than destiny 325m software. Now destiny sold 4 million fw acording to vgchartz. Now that puts halo

If you caught my link to the article, VGC had Destiny as 2.43 million FW (US), so that would put Halo 5 around 2.3 million FW (US). I think 100-150 consoles sold is a more reasonable number, though. To me, 200K just sounds like a lot of special bundles to move (The preoders could make me very, very wrong lol.).

Yeah but cod aw moved like 220k last year and it was the LE bundle.

Im speaking about WW.

The only article I found from VGC was for the US (67% of X1 Destiny sales LTD, for reference); where did you get 4 million from?


I went to the games page for each console and added up its fw sells.
