Ok so in case anyone wanted to know one of the Holiday bundles for the 360 includes Fable 3 and a download token for Halo Reach. My goal here is to try and track roughly how much more Halo Reach has sold due to this bundle than Vgchartz tracks.
So the bundle released on October 18th and is available in North America only I believe. I don't believe the first week or two of this bundle will really show much of a difference in Fable 3's numbers because I've heard it's not in too many stores yet.
The way I'm going to track the Halo Reach sales is by seeing how much Fable 3 sales rise. Now realize that these sales are very rough estimates and do not include any estimates from what Reach has sold already being on DD on the 360 nor will it. Also I will take off a certain amount of sales off due to what Fable 3 would have sold anyways without the bundle and to get those numbers I will look and see what Fable 2 had sold during it's second Christmas season in 2009.
Fable 3's sales for the week ending in the 15th of October (before the bundle began)
|Weekly Sales||Lifetime Sales|
|Week||Total Fable 3 sales||Estimated Halo Reach sales||Total estimated Reach sales|
|22nd October 2011||8,034||None||None|
|29th October 2011||12,553||3,000||3,000|
|05th November 2011||54,197||45,000||48,000|
|12th November 2011||96,437||86,000||134,000|
|19th November 2011||120,500||108,000||242,000|
|26th November 2011||228,261||195,000||437,000|
|03rd December 2011||146,376||125,000||562,000|
|10th December 2011||175,886||145,000||707,000|
|17th December 2011||264,894||230,000||937,000|
|24th December 2011||330,432||290,000||1,227,000|
|31st December 2011||131,837||110,000||1,337,000|
|7th January 2012||44,572||35,000||1,372,000|
Vgchartz Halo Reach numbers + estimated Halo Reach sales: 8,813364 + 1,372,000 = 10,185,364
I will check to see if there have been any adjustments 2 weeks after the Holiday Bundle appears to be done.
