Forums - Sales Discussion - So, at the end, Splatoon will outsell Halo 5. HANDS DOWN!

Did you ever think this was possible!?

yes, since E3 2014 64 13.97%
 
Yes, after Splatoon launch 56 12.23%
 
Yes, after Halo first week in UK 80 17.47%
 
I never expected that. wow... 255 55.68%
 
Total:455

Splatoon will sell well but so will Halo 5. Both great FPS games. What's your point of the comparison? Are you trying to claim 1 game being better then the other? Both exclusive for there own consoles, both different types of games and completely different atmospheres.

Halo 5 is selling well digitally and remember Halo 5 is also competing with giant games like COD, TR, Destiny, FO4 and many other big releases on X1 while Splatoon doesn't.

Sales dont tell the true story here, I personally think Halo 5 will have longer legs then Splatoon and will probably end around the 5m mark which is still a very successful game for MS and Xbox while Splatoon will probably die out around 3m. Plus Halo 5 has probably already sold more then Splatoon since there are no digital sales included here. Just my judgement and opinion here. I am personally a fan of both games but Halo is Halo.

Dude, are you serious? Nintendo reported that Splatoon is at 2.4m by the end of September. You really think the game will only sell 590k copies until the end of its life (when there's even a bundle coming out)? O.o



Bet with Teeqoz for 2 weeks of avatar and sig control that Super Mario Odyssey would ship more than 7m on its first 2 months. The game shipped 9.07m, so I won

Given that Nintendo spent MK level of money marketing Splatoon, I would say Nintendo was expecting that.

So equal marketing spend equates to equal sales expectations?

 

The spin, just stop before you get dizzy.

Yeah uh, not going to happen, halo 5 will eclipse splatoon before the years out let alone "in the end"



Well, now that we have first week numbers for Halo 5, let's compare them to Halos 3 & 4.

Halo 3 - 3,811,047
Halo 4 - 3,662,557
Halo 5 - 1,457,849

Halo 4 has been on the market for 156 weeks now, compared to Halo 3 both games sales were:
Halo 3 - 10,924,767 - First week numbers were 35% of that.
Halo 4 - 9,541,543 - First week numbers were 38% of that.

Now if Halo 5 has Halo 3's percentage effect, 155 weeks from now, it would have around 4,165,282 copies sold. If it has Halo 4's effect, it'll be at 3,836,444 copies sold.

And now looking at Halo 3 by itself, it is at week number 422 on the market, and it sits at 12,057,422 copies, and it's first week sell-through is around 31.6% of that number.
If Halo 5 has the same effect, it'll be at 4,613,446 million copies sold, 421 weeks from now...

Now let's look at Splatoon, which as of now, sits at 2,112,178 million copies sold...
And based off these numbers and projections... I do believe that Splatoon has a chance to finish with more than Halo 5.
Granted, it's not a big chance, but it's not a small chance either.
It has a reasonable chance. It's going to get a boost from this upcoming holiday season, granted Halo's will be much much bigger, since it was released right before the holiday season; And Japan especially loves this game, something that could never be said for Halo.
Will Splatoon actually do it? Only time will tell.
But I wouldn't dismiss the possibility.
I don't think it's a Guarantee! But it's not impossible either.

i think that Splatoon will or has outsold Halo 5 but lets not forget that Splatoon costed not everywhere 60$ and MS made a lot of money with Microtransactions. So you can see it either way which sold more.
But props to Nintendo for its smaller user-base



In the United States and in the United Kingdom, Halo 5 will sell more. In Continental Europe and in Japan, the win is for Splatoon.

It's going to be a close one worldwide....

Yeah yeah, spin those tentacles all you want, but it's not gonna happen. Just look how competitive the new Halo WORLD championship will be.
Splatoon is just one good game. Not in the same league with Halo. Or COD, Battlefield, Killzone, Battlefront, Counter Strike, Bordelands, Garden Warfare, Overwatch etc...



LOL Not a chance. You seem to forget that this is a busy season and Halo as a franchise tends to have legs. Its one of the most loved shooters on the market. Splatoon looks cool, but no one is really going to be knocking down doors to get it. Halo on the other hand is the reason why mid night releases started in the first place.



People falling for this troll thread and giving the desired reaction.

If serious, shame on you OP
