NPD will stop ranking games and consoles on copies/units sold and will start ranking based on MAUs.

MAU's?

and this will start this month? 


YOu have been had.

What I am getting at is some people are saying Halo 5 is a failure because it didn't hit 3 million on a single platform when even COD couldn't do it (going by retail).

I think you know that but I will try to make the things transparent again...

- It sold less than half of previous entries (not just Halo 3)
- It sold less than ODST Expansion
- It only moved 93k Xbone at release (way less than UC bundles for eg.)
- The more expensive limited edition ($249) have a price drop less than a month after release ($149)

Unlike previous Halos it didn't put US on fire.
I can be wrong but I don't know any others franchise that underperformanced this bad this generation.

Halo 5 made xbox one outsell the PS4 for november NPD despite the PS4 price cut for the month in just 4 days. 

Also, we are not counting digital sales which could put it above half Halo 3. Halo 3 had the luxery of having no competition while Halo 5 has to go up against star wars and black ops this year. Really good numbers. Mario Kart 8 and GT6 did a lot worse if we compare to previous entries.

You mean Gears made Xbone outsell PS4 by 30k because it was the top seller Bundle SKU in October.

Yes we are counting digital... 1.3m is digital included for October in US... and no it won't reach near half of Halo 3 even with digital.

The competition in 2007 was like today... c'mon Moderm Warfare, BioShock, etc,

GT6 was pointed like a failure at launch... so what your point here? I didn't know the Mario Kart 8 sales.

COD wasn't a huge thing yet (over a month away for COD4) and bioshock wasn't a competitive multiplayer game.

Im pretty sure a lot of people bought xbox ones for Halo 5, I mean you're trying to tell me people bought xbox one for gears of ultimate over the PS4 and the price cut? 

Also, the digital that is included are bundles and not including people downloading it through xbox one digital store going by what people have told me unless I am missing something.

With digital it probably is around 2 million because it was the fastest selling xbox game on the xbox digital online store during opening week.

Again...

Retail copies: 842K
Bundles copies (digital + physical): 93k (we don't know the split here)
Digital copies: 365k

Total copies in October: 1.3m

Stop this 2 million nonsense please.

PS. CoD was not big lol it sold over 2m copies at retail on debut excluding PC sales (where it was more famous).

Let's try again.

1. These are VGC numbers.
2. These are WW numbers.

This thread is about US.

Leaked numbers for US: 1.3m including digital for October (93k are bundles).

About WW we have these datas:

UK leaked numbers: ~150k without digital for October.
Germany BIU: less than 100k for October + November including digital.

PS. I won't be surprise if the Mod Team thinks I'm trolling or talking bad about Xbox lol
