Well iv been reading articles and alot of gamers claiming that Halo 5 is on the Decline and a Remastered heavly bundled PS4 game NDC has outsold a game on half the Hardware sold and isnt heavly bundled.
So lets compare it to Sony and Nintendo's biggest franchises and see what we find.
Halo 5 has sold 3.4m on a console with 19m+ sold
GT6 has sold 3.4m on a console with 85m+ sold
Mario 3D World sold 4m on a console with 12m+ sold
So Halo isnt doing too bad considering Sony and Nintendo's biggest franchise have done the exact same thing.
So a remastered heavly bundled PS4 game NDC has out sold Sony's greatest franchise aswell? Does this tell the community something? Yes, heavly bundled games are freebies and increase sale counts without any pressure, look at Wii Sport bundled with the Wii sold over 82m copies while Kinect Adventures sold 24m.
Lets get off Halos case because what ever Halo has done is no different to what GT or Mario have done. Three of the companies biggest franchises that arent selling as well as there predeccors.
So lets stop comparing a game that is being given away for free to one that isnt. I am talking about NDC and H5. If you do the maths, Halo 5 is selling the same as NDC on half the hardware and not as bundled focus. This a better question, Would NDC sell the same as H5 if it was sold on the same amount of hardware with less bundleing? I daubt it.
This is not a fanboy post, its to get my point across, because when i bring up facts and good points i get locked out of the threads. Its an Interesting world we live in today..
