  1. The Halo franchise has reached a prodigious mile-stone, selling over 65 million units on all platforms to date! Halo is a legendary series that we've all come to know and love, though it's changed in many ways over the years, it has still managed to keep a sense of magic and awe to it. It's been reported by IGN.com that the game series has sold a combined total of over 65 million units worldwide on the original Xbox, the Xbox 360, and of course the younger grandson, the Xbox One. It is very likely that these numbers will grow higher with the upcoming release of Halo 5: Guardians, and because of it, sales for Halo: The Master Chief Collection may also increase. What is surprising is that Halo: The Master Chief Collection only sold about 1 million copies in its first week, with factors like a broken launch and a new platform tying into the retrospectively small outcome. This year marks the 14th anniversary for the legendary franchise, and Halo 5: Guardians will be the 8th game in the franchise, excluding remasters and mobiles.

  3. The world building game 'Minecraft' has surpassed 4 million total sales according to developer 4J studios. Read below for more details From: http://www.computerandvideogames.com/370913/minecraft-xbla-sales-top-4-million/ By: Tom Ivan for CVG UK The company said on Twitter: "Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition has passed 4 million sales! Incredible number, thanks to you all!" The game broke previous XBLA records by selling more than any other title in its first 24 hours of availability on the digital platform. It went on to sell over a million copies in less than a week. Here's what we said in our 9/10 Minecraft: Xbox 360 review: "Whether you're mining, crafting, building, or fighting - either alone, or with friends - there's nothing quite like Minecraft. An accomplished, streamlined port that's a perfect fit for Xbox 360." The PC version of Minecraft hit seven million sales in August. http://www.computerandvideogames.com/videos/minecraft-xbox-360-beginners-guide-j00MX4bsy8F2O
  4. Xbox 360 has once again proven itself to be the best selling console in the States. Microsoft's epic console has once again stayed on top of the table with it's 27 month consecutive being the most bought system in the United States, according to new date from NPD Group. The Xbox 360 console has sold 261'000 units in the United States in March, beating Sony's PlayStation 3 and Nintendo's new Wii U handheld device. In the large picture, physical sales decreased by 10% year over year from $1.1Billion in March 2012 to $992.5 Million in March 2013. Software sales remained basically flat at around $554.8 Million, only inching down by 1% from one year ago. The steepest decline came from Hardware sales, dropping down by 32% to $221.6 Million. Against popular beliefs, the Nintendo 3DS has grown by roughly 9% during the decline of portable console sales. Sources: BGR.com
  5. It's been reported that Black ops 2 and Far cry 3 were the best selling games in period of Dec 30th 2012 - Feb 2nd 2013. More details below. Credit to lil dog for this article. This article is from IGN The NPD Group has revealed the top ten best-selling games in the United States for the month of January. The best-selling titles in the United States for the period between December 30, 2012 and February 2, 2013 were the following: Call of Duty: Black Ops II (360, PS3, Wii U, PC)** Far Cry 3 (360, PS3, PC) Just Dance 4 (Wii, 360, PS3, Wii U) NBA 2K13 (360, PS3, Wii, Wii U, PSP, PC)** Madden NFL 13 (360, PS3, Wii, PSV, Wii U) DMC: Devil May Cry (PS3, 360) Halo 4 (360)** Assassin's Creed III (360, PS3, Wii U, PC)** Skylanders Giants (Wii, 360, PS3, 3DS, Wii U)** FIFA Soccer 13 (PS3, 360, PSV, Wii, Wii U, 3DS, PSP) NPD analyst Liam Callahan noted that January marked an unusual five-week reporting period for NPD, but noted that “an adjusted figure can be computed for trend purposes: multiplying January 2013 sales figures by 0.80 (four-fifths) will normalize the five-week period to a four-week level.” “Overall retail video game sales (hardware, software, and accessories, would be down 13 percent, instead of up 9 percent, if sales were normalized to account for the 5-week January,” Callahan noted. “When taking into account the 5-week month of January 2013, normalized sales of hardware were down 17%. Based on looking at trends of a normalized January 2013, software dollar trends were down 19% from January 2012.” Callahan said Far Cry 3’s ranking marks “the first time since January 2002 with Final Fantasy X that a December launch has ranked second in the following January.” He added that Ni No Kuni “was just outside of the top ten game ranking at eleventh” but would have ranked at #7 if sales of individual games weren’t combined into groups by platform. Callahan added that PlayStation 3 software was down 2% compared to last year (when adjusting for the five-week period), and 3DS sales were only down 4%. He also noted that accessory sales were up 4% compared to a year ago, and that “Skylanders accessory sales continue to impress and made up five of the top ten accessory SKUs sold this month.” On the hardware front, Callahan notes “Xbox 360 led hardware sales again this month. This is the eighteenth consecutive month the platform led overall hardware sales and the twenty-fifth consecutive month it has led console hardware sales.” Microsoft said in a statement that 281,000 Xbox 360s were sold in the United States in January and that $338 million was spent on Xbox 360 games, consoles and accessories for the month. While Nintendo didn't provide specific sales figures this month, Gamasutra reports that "cumulative three-month Wii U sales are down 38% vs. Wii's first three months on the market."
