750 in Feb is retarded.

How great does it feel for the people there who suffered through trying to sell GameCubes last gen.

That's a HUGE number considering it was only on sale for two days in February. It didn't release until the 27th.

Halo 3 sold like 3 million copies in one day. I'm not impressed with 300k in 2 days.

Halo was advertised like crazy and was a wildly popular franchise before part 3 rolled out, Killzone 2 wasn't/isn't.

what in the fuck are you smoking?!?!?!?... i love trolls that just post without facts or research

- Halo 3 released on 09/25/07, WEEK ONE SALES WORLDWIDE were 3 million, it was in the market for FIVE DAYS. before the week was over...
(Killzone 2 week one sales was only on the market for 2 days since it released 02/27/08, and only the 300k was towards U.S. sales.)

So no it did not sell 3 million in one day, you only wish.

- the "Halo" franchise is stronger then the "Killzone" franchise, on top of that, this was Halo's THRID installment, not second, making it even more popular.

- Halo 3 was advertised up the fucking arsenal unlike Killzone 2.. (advertising=more sales)

- by 2007 the 360 was in the market for about the same time period that the PS3 has been now with killzone 2 releasing however there was more 360's in the U.S. then if you were to compare the numbers to the current PS3 owners in the U.S. (more install base=more sales)

im not posting this as a fanboy, im posting this cause i like to post facts, not just make up shit. in the 2 days that kz2 was in the market it sold 713k worldwide, thats good for a game that was not advertised and being a second installment to a much crappier predecessor. yes it was hyped by sony, but not as much as halo 3 was...

and no sony did not label killzone 2 as their "halo killer" .. i believe that was killzone 1.

Wow...too much caffeine this morning?? BTW, reread what I wrote, it sez "KZ was hyped as $ony's halo killer"... Regarding ads, $ony has been hyping KZ2 for years...did it really need ads?

*gets popcorn ready* this is going to be a interesting debate

FYI: Halo 3 did 170 million on "day 1" (impressive #'s but im not a big fan of the game)

Next time before you open your big mouth, why don't you read what I said and do research before talking out of your ass and starting a fucking fight. Don't come in here and call me a fucking troll when you don't know what the hell you're talking about.

Fact: Halo 3 made $170 million dollars in 24 hours.

Fact: I actually said "Halo 3 sold LIKE 3 million copies on day one. I didn't fucking say "Halo 3 sold exactly 3 million copies in the United States alone on day one." DID I??? No, I didn't. Please read more carefully next time before you start attacking me based on YOUR INABILITY TO READ

Fact: Halo 3 had 1.7 million pre-orders.

Fact: Halo 3 sold $300 million in week one, for a total of 3.8 million copies.

Fact: I just found this: Halo 3 sold 2.34 million copies on day one. Still beats the fucking shit out of Killzone 2. I'm so fucking sorry that I exaggerated by 660,000 copies.

did ANYONE mention franchise popularity? NO. So why are you bringing it up to discredit my post?

Proof? Link to back this up? Or are you just talking out of your ass.

btw I've seen a shit load of KZ2 commercials, and only one halo commercial (the one during MNF) so get your damn story straight.

You just got owned by the facts. KZ2 sold 713k worldwide in 2 days. Halo 3 sold 2.34 million in 24 hours. My point still stands. I'M NOT IMPRESSED WITH KZ2'S SALES FIGURES BECAUSE HALO 3 OWNED THE SHIT OUT OF IT.

Also, you mention that KZ2 is the second installment... Halo 2 also beat the shit out of KZ2 in day one sales. Need I dig up those numbers too?
