I'm thinking PS4 The Last of Us will do 5 million lifetime vs 3.5 for Halo 2.



Around the Network

I'm thinking TLOU 3 mil, Halo 2 2mil. TLOU has very good timing. It's recent, has had just enough time for people to spread news of its by word of mouth, so more people will be interested, since it's a new franchise that's had such praise. It's also going to be one of the best things on the system. Halo 2 is pretty old news now, there are better options on the system, and the franchise has improved a lot and moved on since then so it's less interesting. Add in the install bases, and the troubles in Europe and Japan, and TLOU has a distinct advantage even without Halo's brand recognition.

To those saying a multiplayer focus will help Halo 2, I say it will hurt it, because people will have more likely gotten their fill of Halo at a friend's house than with TLOU. Sure, you can borrow the game, but with a single player game you'd much rather own it, whereas with a multiplayer game, you don't even need to borrow it to get full enjoyment, you can just play with your friend.

What did the first halo remake sell?

About 2.2m according to VGC

 

Then I wouldn't expect the second remake to do much better than that. I’d guess about 3 million, maybe a bit more. When taking the new console effect into account. So, pretty much a tie.


But halo 2 remake should have the original multi where the halocea pretty much had the so 



I'm going with the last of us by at least 2 million. A 10 year old Halo remake isn't going to sell nearly as good as people think especially with only about 4 million Xbox install base. Halo Anniversary only sold about 2 million with a 360 install base of 60+ million.

I don't see any reason why Halo 2 won't win since it's rumored to have a full multiplayer remake and Halo 5 beta access, and possibly even ports of Halo 3 and Halo 4 if ntkrnl's leak turns out to be true (some of his predictions have come to pass already).

Combat Evolved Anniversary lacked proper multiplayer though, it was just a map pack for Halo Reach. Halo 2 Anniversary is rumored to have a full multiplayer remake and Halo 5 beta access. Halo fans have been wanting classic Halo multiplayer to return after the disaster that was modernized multiplayer in Halo 4, many Halo fans will flock to Halo 2 Anniverary in order to play classic Halo multiplayer again.



Halo 2 probably. The install bases for both consoles allow sufficient numbers for either game so the bigger franchise will win.



Halo 2 for sure.
The TLOU mastered edition is annoying as fuck..



TLOU is still too fresh of a release, so I pick halo 2 to be the better seller. One thing that's clear, it seems neither the ps4 or x1 have much software for their first year on the market. There's just not much coming out, it seems the wiiu isn't the only machine with software droughts. No doubt they'll pick up the pace, but I'm a bit surprised they haven't had a lot more software releases. My ps4 is collecting dust with my wiiu, unfortunately.... Can't wait for games! Looking forward to e3.....

Halo 2. The last of us only came out last year and it's not from a big franchise.




A new IP sold over 6 million in less than a year on a dying console. Id say thats a sign of a pretty strong franchise. 

And I could be wrong but I think TLoU on PS3 is well on its way to outsell Halo 2 on original Xbox

I highly doubt the PS3 version will be able to hit Halo 2's sales alone (8.49m). It's currently tracking ahead of Uncharted 3, so 7 million total for physical + digital is very doable, but that's quite a bit off 8.5 million. Including the PS4 version it could probably do it.

Still, the PS3 version alone should be able to pass Halo 1 ^^ I'd consider that worthy of high praise.

If it hit 6 million in less than a year at full price, I dont see why it shouldnt drag on to sell another 2 million when price get lower and gets some bundles
