Halo3 had no competition............. while Halo 5 has alot like Cod, BF Series, Titanfall etc.
and the sales curve.... yeah it is up YoY since 2015
So you're saying Halo can't compete?
Being up slightly YOY doesn't change the fact that it's crawling along below 80k and being outsold by nearly 2-to-1 by Switch in the weekly charts.
no surley not!
Witch digital it has sold ~7 million with alot competion after 1 1/2 years while halo 3 sold 10+ million after 3 years without any competition in the beginning.
so it sells very nicely with ~15k copies per week and online there are alot more players then halo 3 had 1 1/2 year after release so you could say halo 5 is rising against halo 3 and it is building a good baseline for halo 6, this is something where halo 4 on the other hand failed!
The switch is having a release bonus the sales of the switch are declining since launch and we have to see where it will be in something like 1 year, xbox one and ps4 had the same after their releases.
