Question Call of Duty Black Op will out sell Halo Reach on 360 alone

Make your predictions here! We're talking YTD 2010 NPD numbers here folks!

Maybe we can even get a few friendly wagers going (were ya at sobes?!)



We're talking 360 platform only, so no PS3 sales will be included in the results for this.

Damn it! Meant to make this a poll thread.

So copy and paste a vote!

Just kidding. From what I played of the Reach Beta and knowing Halo's rabid fanbase I'm gonna have to go with: Halo Reach will outsell COD7



Of course I haven't played or seen much of cod7 so...

Yeah I think COD has transcended hardcore gaming while Halo has only reached critical mass among the hardcore.

I'm shocked at how many people I know bought a 360 just for COD, or dusted it off just for COD. They don't have any interest in a sci-fi shooter.

Quality doesn't play much of a factor. As long as COD7 just adds new maps and weapons to MW2, it will outsell Reach IMO.

I don't know, as MW2 pissed off quite a lot of the MW fanbase. We shall see, but I'd like to think Halo Reach will be the better selling of the two.

I'm going with Halo Reach. The Halo series has been a huge seller for the 360 and I see Reach doing the same or even better. COD Black Op will do probably do well overall on all the consoles. Heh ok now Kam, start a poll with Black Op against a PS3 game. You know, some PS3 flagship title.

There isn't a PS3 flagship title big enough to even compete.

Even if GT5 was confirmed for this year I wouldn't put it above COD7 in sales 2010 YTD. (but I do think GT5 would have higher lifetime sales. GT games have legs)

I smell a bet.

How many million does "piss" constitute?

We can bet a $60 retail game on the outcome if you'd like.

Only NPD will be used, and if Reach ends up in a bundle we'd have to come to some sort of agreement since NPD counts bundled units.

If this were a modern COD I would say it would be close, but I think peopl will be sitting this one out. People are already pretty pissed off at the brand and WaW from what I recall did not sell as well as cod4 or mw2...

Reach will do big numbers, but I don't think it will be as big as Halo 3 as that crowd has shifted to other impressive shooters. Back when Halo 3 launched there wasn't as many quality shooters and now there are quite a few sooo..

it's hard to call, I will give it to Reach but I honestly don't expect blockbuster type #s like their past installments. Also reach is out sep 25th and cod comes out mid november
