That's still not how it works...

I guess it is for revenue... they use the MSRP price to estimate revenue.

$550m is about 9m units at $60.

But you need to acount for special or collector editions that drives down the number of units.

Anyway I agree with you estimate but I guess it can be 8m at high end.

PS. It is way less than old titles but better than Ghosts and AW.

More info:
Worldwide sales "rose significantly over previous 2 years"

Last 2 years

No surprises there

For comparisons sake, Black Ops 2 revenue was 500 million day one.

Only USA was $500m day one. That shows one thing to us (read that I believe on Eurogamer), Black Ops is simply the biggest CoD for fans (that's why it is bigger than the last two releases)  but compared to BO2, BO3 numbers aren't that big.

Edit: Eurogamer wrote shit, it was WW and not US only.

WW for Black Ops 2.

Last US + UK revenue from Activision was Modern Warfare 3.

After MW3 = WW revenue
Before MW3 (including MW3) = US + UK revenue

Edit - GAF had a comparision.

Milliard = billion.
Jours = days.
Heures = hours.

MW2, BO1 and MW3 = UK+US only.
The followers = worldwide.
Ghosts was 1 billion day one, but that was sell-in.
No numbers for AW.

No sales numbers brackdown, this is almost word for word the same thing Microsoft said about Halo sales. And you guys realy are assuming hardware revenue is not included.

tsc, tsc, tsc...

That´s so cute.

Off course Activision gets a piece of each bundle sold. Michael Pachter says it MS and Sony have to pay $40-50 for each third party game bundled.


ohh man does your credibility fall when you usa pachter as a source.... damn.

 

but anyways, nobody here is denying that they arent getting a cut from the bundle, but its still a software sale. they cant include the revenue from the hardware as it goes to sony.

so BO3 made 550$ million in software, Halo 5 made 400$ million in software, shipped hardware, and microtransactions. which when you look at it means that BO3 crushed halo 5 when it comes to units shipped. 



I think I will never understand the Halo vs. CoD comparisons in pretty much every thread about Halo or CoD^^. Two games which don't even try to be the same (sure, both have similarities but they still are very different if you know both good) and not to forget it's multiplat vs. XBO.

I mean, just imagine CoD would be only on XBO this year or Halo also on PS4, PC and so on...CoD would be probably still bigger but it would be a whole new story.

Uhh, I really doubt Activision is co-opting Sony's hardware sales, they only get their cut from the copy of the game sold with the unit, not the whole thing.

Hardware is not counted... it is revenue from shipped units to retail like previous CoD PRs.

They are only mad due Halo hilarious PR.


Alright bruh. Let's calm down about the Halo PR. This thread is about Call of duty. Not saying that Halo isn't a good sales comparison to talk about, but all you're doing is bashing the PR.


Why would you direct that at ethomaz? Dark is the one who brought up the PR crap in the first place to bait. You cant just pick the side you dont like and ridicule them, thats flaming.



Well I'd hope so, Halo 5 is on one platform vs Cod being on 5. The October charts show Halo having more pre orders than Black Ops 3 (PS4) regardless of Sony claiming all the shooter fans are on the PS4



...but how many hardware/software combo records did they break. We need Microsoft on the case.
