Actually the only reason that Call of Duty sold more copies of their game, which by the way is the same crap year after year afte ryear, is becuase this game came out for PS3, Xbox, PC, WiiU, and Vita. It took 5 consoles to make it to 500 million dollars, and Halo got to 220 with only the xbox. So that tells you really what game was more popular and didn't need help from every other console on the market including one that hasn't even been released yet. You writers really need to get your facts right before you speak your minds. Halo 4 is the top title of the year hands down. It a new and refreshing game with more multiplayer and campaign options then COD will ever have. If people want a really good gaming experience, they know where to go, if they want the same old camp ground game, then they buy this crap.
I agree with Sam I was about to comment the same. Black Ops II was released for all the major consoles and PC's while Halo 4 was released just for the Xbox 360. Halo4 being Only available on 1/4 or less devices than CoD yet selling half the amount as CoD is FARRRR more impressive than the CoD numbers.
However I disagree it's the latter part of Sams statements, I think even an overdone Black Ops II is way more fun than Halo4. My friend and cousins and I beat Halo 4 on the first day and we all agree that the game wasn't nearly as good as the hype and we aren't enjoying the multiplayer very much at all. On the other side of the coin we never EVER play CoD campaign mode it's solely for multiplayer only and th multiplayer is much more fun than halo4 even if it isn't as good as the original Black Ops multiplayer.
Ah yes forgot all about that Sam, your right.
After playing the first black ops, which i didnt finish, I said I would never buy another one because it was ***.
I never really play shooters on Xbox and if halo4 would have come out on pc i would have bought it first day. I think i will buy halo 4 today :) kinda looks pretty good.
For a second there... I was scared and disappointed in society for choosing a game that clones its self with the same old game play style and engine over and over again as a marketing scheme... even if the games them self are pretty fun like sevags said "not fixing what ain't broken" doesn't provide the innovation and improvements the Call of Duty series could be giving its consumers...
But then I realized that purely in terms of Xbox since that's where Halo 4 is competing thanks to SamistheMan (You are indeed on this one), the quality, in depth story driven and action packed FPS pulled ahead!
+1 for Humanity
Yes, it sold more, but because it was on PC, PS3, Xbox 360,
While, a while back, Halo 4 came out, with close to the same numbers, while being ONLY ON ONE PLATFORM.
