Once Halo 5 comes out and it bundles with the xbox one, that will be the time the xbox one really starts to sell a great number of units.


That's a full year and a half from now, you know.


Which is also when PS4 counters with their Uncharted 4 bundle so the numbers will stay the same.

If we take that poll seriously we have to accept that 75% of the console gamers are interested in Halo, while in reality at it's peak Halo has only been played by 5-8% of the console gamers.

No we don't have to accept any numberds. As I said, the sample could've been bigger. All the poll does is indicate, that there MIGHT actually be an interest in Halo MCC big enough to sell some consoles.

Do you have a source for that 5-8% claim?

No I don't have a source, I pulled that out of my ass tbh.
But if we look at the numbers, 6th gen top selling Halo was Halo which sold 8.5 million copies.
Total number of consoles sold in 6th gen were around 210 units.
8.5 is around 4% of 210.

Last gen the highest selling Halo was Halo 3 which sold 14.5 million units, and total consoles sold at this point are over 265 million, 14.5 is 5.5% of 265.

So yeah the highest percentage of console gamers at it's peak Halo has reached is 5.5%. And Halo is one of the biggest franchises in gaming.

This is why I think No one game can ever do much to sell a console, it's the overall library that matters, a bunch of games that sell moderate amounts sell more consoles than one game that sells 10 million.

Yea dude if you wanna bring up halo at its peak I think it would be a little higher, Halo 2 stayed the most played game on xbox live for at least 3 years. Let's hope it still holds some of that magic.

It should be higher going by the hype, but I'm not about to fight against numbers...
