After Ubisoft’s ‘Assassin’s Creed’ franchise update last week comes Microsoft’s first full Halo release for Xbox One: ‘Halo 5: Guardians’ takes the top spot and outsells the week 1 for ‘AC: Syndicate’ by 50%.

This is also how much more Halo 5 sold in week 1 compared to last year’s ‘Halo: Master Chief Collection’ - up until now the only other Halo game available via retail for Xbox One owners. Ubisoft only drop to No2 with ‘Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate’ (-39%) and EA drop 1 place to No3 with ‘FIFA 16’ (+25%). There are 2 more big new releases this week within the Top 5: debuting at No4 is 2K/Take 2’s ‘WWE 2K16’, outselling this-week-last-year’s week 1 on ‘WWE 2K15’ by 3 to 1 and coming in one place higher.

Debuting at No5 is Telltale’s ‘Minecraft: Story Mode’ with the disc release including the first of 5 episodes. Activision’s ‘Guitar Hero Live’ drops 8 places to No11 (-39%) and the only other new release within the Top 40 are the next gen console versions of last year’s PC hit ‘Divinity: Original Sin’ – PS4/Xbox One versions from Focus/Koch Media are entitled ‘Divinity Original Sin: Enhanced Edition’ and debuts at No37.

Wait, am I understanding that write up correctly? Halo 5 sold the same as MCC? That cannot be right. That would be pretty low for UK, right?

no Halo 5 sold 150k..

and here are the other Halo games in the UK (according to Bruno MB)

Ass creed low drop was mostly due to bundles. Look at that Watch Dogs climb! Back in the top 10.

WWE "This week last year 3 to 1" is comparing 2k16's both gen release to last gen only last year.

With all the buzz around it i sure thought Halo 5 would be opening higher.


How is 150% of MCC compared to the last mainline Halo titles?

Cross posting from the next thread .
Halo 5 sales are low .

It would be good to be able to get access to digital sales, I would imagine for games such as Halo 5 the digital numbers would be higher than say something like Assassins Creed, maybe?

Even if halo was to sell good on DD lest say 25% which would be a high number .
It would still be only around 200k which is still low for a main line one .

Wonder if the US will follow suit with lowest sales of a mainline Halo. I think so.

Let's just say, additional 50% of the total sales are from digital.

150,000 X 50% = 75,000 + 150,000 = 225,000.

Now, I think I understand the minimal sales PR for the game.


50 % for digital sales are way too high imo. I am thinking of max 30 %.

That's terrible for Halo 5, if I remember correctly Titanfall only sold slightly worse on a significantly smaller install base.

I expected 2+ million on NPD, now I'm not so sure.

Halo 5 sale might be a reaction to Halo 4 and MCC lacking. How is the fan reaction to 5? Maybe it will have a longer tail. Next weeks drop and the retail price development could tell us if the Halo brand is damaged long term.

Also does someone have the data to cross reference Xbox 360/One install base at the time of the release so we can calculate attach rate for the mainline titles?

To sidestep the doom and gloom for a minute, it does makes you wonder just how relevant the digital side of things is becoming in today's climate. Maybe Halo 5 did perform below expectations, or maybe there are a lot of units not being accounted for by a chart that only focuses on physical copies sold.

Not too surprised with Halo seems like quite a muted launch. I think it's been a mistake going so heavy on the lore side as I doubt most care.

Again though another franchise that's looked to mimmixk the majority and then lost out as a result.

XBO Fifa 16 higher makes sense. I've been trying to find a good deal on the console and the Fifa bundle is being offered very cheaply everywhere. I was so close to buying multiple times.

I don't see why.

I was of the thinking that a game like Halo would be a game not a lot of people would trade in and would therefore perhaps go digital with it, whereas something like AC is a single player heavy game with no multiplayer and therefore people would go retail to trade it back in?

Don't know really, just opening my mouth and letting my belly rumble :)

That Halo 5 number is a little shocking.

How the hell can a numbered Halo game sell less than Halo ODST and Reach?

I think the FPS market has changed a lot since the last big Halo game and customers have a lot more options.

Also glad to see the Uncharted bundle still holding on so well. It's been in the top 10 since day 1 if I recall correctly.

To sidestep the doom and gloom for a minute, it does makes you wonder just how relevant the digital side of things is becoming in today's climate. Maybe Halo 5 did perform below expectations, or maybe there are a lot of units not being accounted for by a chart that only focuses on physical copies sold.

It needs to sell as well digitally as it did at retail to make up for that massive decline in sales.

Does not explain when you compare it to other retail launched of the same year.

It should not be an expectation for game franchises to sell more every year then when they sell less for everyone to declare digital download at fault.

Why all these Halo low sales talk? 150k is a lot of copies, I'm sure it will have great legs.
Who knows, maybe REQ pack sale might make more money for MS than regular Halo.

With how high digital prices in europe are i can't see console digital be higher than 25-30% of retail sales.

For example there in germany console digital sales are 9% of retail sales (Site 17). I see this posted a lot on Gaf but console digital is really minimal.
