And yes, Halo 3 will sell a lot of systems, as it's undoubtably going to be the most anticipated game of this gen.
Just looking at the US, all 3 PS2 GTAs sold more than Halo 2. So did mario 64 but I'm not sure if that counts bundles with the console. I'd say GTA IV is more anticipated.
Looking at the world...ugh...too many. Final fantasy games (actually, only VII and X, which you'll notice are the first released on their respective consoles...interesting, eh?), pokeman, 2 mario kart games, of course a ton of other mario games, and lastly, a sony franchise, EVERY SINGLE gran turismo game sold more worldwide than Halo 2. I'd say there are quite a few more anticipated games than Halo 3.
Again, I think a lot of people that will buy halo 3 already have the 360 knowing they would want it, but we'll see I guess. I think Microsoft will wait until after the halo 3 sales die down a little to drop the price of the 360, too.
Ok, I was a little broad with that statement. Let me throw in some clarifyers. First off, any mention of something X-box automatically excludes Japan. Take my statement to aim at NA, and maybe Europe as well. I should also add in exclusive title. Yes, GTA is probably more sought after, but it is going to be on two platforms.
So my new statement goes like this "In terms of the console war, in NA and Europe, I think Halo 3 will be the most important game of this year. Maybe even this gen."
I'm a mod, come to me if there's mod'n to do.
Chrizum is the best thing to happen to the internet, Period.
Serves me right for challenging his sales predictions!
Bet with dsisister44: Red Steel 2 will sell 1 million within it's first 365 days of sales.
