Is it? I mean to begin with Halo 5 is a numbered mainline Halo that sold less than Uncharted 4. So why doesn't that count? And it is the most recent one so it is fair to say that currently Uncharted is bigger than Halo. Not to mention that UK and US are where Xbox has always been the strongest, so worldwide the sales were much closer. And again, for the most recent releases, Halo 5 and Uncharted 4, worldwide UC4 will outsell H5 by a huge margin.
Just like with Ratchet and Clank and Quantum Break, wouldn't surprise me at all if Uncharted 4 outsells Halo 5 in the US as well. For reference, how many units exactly did Halo 5 sell in its debut week in the UK?
Congratulations, ND. Uncharted 4 is probably the best game I've ever played.
So glad. Recently my ps4 revived my gaming envy I lost a little bit these past times. Was playing now just some Mp game where I love some nice SP which I didn't find any game interesting enough for me. Ratchet and uncharted are a blessing this month for me
This Week Data showed Halo5 in UK did 50% more business than Halo:MCC in its first week and performed slightly better than AC:Syndicate (ACS which released on 2Platforms(notPC) and is also underperforming compared to every other Mainline AC).
H5 opening week selling even less than Halo:ODST (which is shocking)
Note: (This Data never includes Digital Sales, these are all Retail data)
So this put Halo5 first week sales in UK at about : 160K
even after we add Digital Sales it is almost sure to have performed worse just by looking at more influential Retail Sales.
Lol good spin there, let's forget for a minute 360 install base was larger and halo is an fps that automatically sells more than other genres. You should post you're cv to ms they need the help spinning numbers of late.
Pondering it I've come to the conclusion Halo was bigger at peak but is dipping alarmingly while Uncharted is either at peak or still growing.
My conclusion is MS has allowed core franchises to fragment with no replacements in site whereas Sony introducing new IP last gen plus releasing existing IP has proven to be the better strategy leading into this gen and is now really paying off.
One of the best games I've played in years. Absolute masters of their craft.
The fact that Naughty Dog actually gets to decide to move on to a brand new IP instead of being pressured to keep churning out sequels is fucking beautiful. Other publishers should take note because this is how you keep a developer on the absolute top of their game.
