Comparing the sales of an established franchise on an userbase of 80m+ with that of a new IP on two new consoles with combine sales of less than 20m?

Ok then.

Granted, if we include 7th gen then Destiny has trounced Halo 4 in the first 5 weeks of sales. Its currently at 6.8 million.

Halo 4 was 5.7 million at week 5. While Destiny on 8th gen is 5.1 million.

By week 10 Halo 4 reached 7.4 million.

It should also be noted Halo 4 was released closer to the holiday. So that may have gave it a sales edge.


How many 360s sold/installed base when Halo 4 released, how many PS4?   Which one is a new franchise, which one was the sequel of a proven popular franchise?  /thread? 

yeah,

Well Destiny has sold better on 8th gen than 7th gen with a significantly smaller userbase. So that argument doesn't always work.

Like I said before, I could have said Halo 4 sold better than Destiny on Sony platforms or Xbox platforms. They would give Destiny the userbase advantage, but Halo 4 would still be ahead.

Destiny has sold better than many established games. So again, that argument doesn't always work.

not sure if this is a fair comparison as everyone and their mama had a 360 when this game out so it's a given that it will sell more

We all know destiny already failed to become THE next scifi shooter. Not lets see if bungie and activison can do some dmg control so it will become a decent selling multiplat ip. Destiny also will have zero holiday bump I suspect. Maybe if they run cheap 30 bucks promotions or better.

Great! Halo 4 sold incredibly well. Its impressive that Halo 4 sold that well but Destiny is a new IP.
