Most underrated game in the series. If it had multiplayer it would have been an instant classic. In my opinion, it's the best campaign in the series.
Thechalkblock (on 21 July 2013)
my favorite halo campaign. also probably one of the hardest on legendary.
busbfran (on 01 June 2013)
It was an okay halo game, first week sales are impressive!!!!
sales2099 (on 15 February 2013)
Amazing that an expansion has had more sales then most exclusives can dream of.
T.Rexington (on 09 October 2012)
My favorite of the bunch. It'll be a shame if ODST never gets it's own sequel.
Millenium (on 15 April 2012)
Fawk yeah!
Mr Puggsly (on 23 January 2012)
And there is it, 6 million. It might surpass Halo:CE down the road.
Kizmi (on 14 January 2012)
When will it crack 6mill??
Machina (on 05 January 2012)
Halo Wars rocked!
man-bear-pig (on 03 January 2012)
My least favourite in the series,bar halo wars
Millenium (on 23 November 2011)
So close to 6m now! Will most likely do it this year if BF & Christmas lift it even a little. @sly777, ODST is one of my favourites! Only thing they should have done better was to include Firefight Matchmaking
Seece (on 13 November 2011)
Yo John, I expect 6.1 end of the year, and 6.3 end of gen still!
Kizmi (on 13 October 2011)
By the end of the year it might hit 6mil
yo_john117 (on 24 September 2011)
So close to 6 million! BTW Seece I don't think ODST can make it to 6.3 million lifetime.
sly777 (on 09 August 2011)
if this is the worst halo of the series, they are all pretty good. ODST still a solid shooter game
yahoocom1984 (on 05 July 2011)
No, Unchaeted 3 won't outsell this. Skyrim Xbox360 version > Uncharted 3..we will see
Seece (on 01 July 2011)
dsage, this'll do 6.3 lifetime roughly, you really expect Uncharted 3 to be bigger than Gears 1 and 2??
dsage01 (on 29 June 2011)
Uncharted 3 will outsell this. BTW this is the worst Halo created by bungie
slipknotfan (on 26 June 2011)
My son loves halo. He hated this one! Enough said
blue7x7 (on 15 June 2011)
This game gets a lot of hate for the whole expansion thing but it really is a great game and probably has one of the soundtracks of all the Halo games especially the night sequences. Love this game.
hudsoniscool (on 09 June 2011)
man i wonder if combat evolved will kill reaches sales like this killed halo 3.
yahoocom1984 (on 05 June 2011)
A Halo 3 expansion pack alone outsells the whole Killzone series
foodfather (on 24 May 2011)
this game needs a sequal. Fingers crossed for E3.
hudsoniscool (on 09 April 2011)
6 million isnt bad for dlc.
Calmador (on 14 March 2011)
It'll get 6 million.. I definitely am getting my copy just for all that tasty DLC :D
Mr Puggsly (on 13 February 2011)
Inching its way to 6 million. Will probably do 7 million life time.
hudsoniscool (on 15 January 2011)
wow this could pass gears
donsterydo2 (on 27 May 2010)
It will be 5.7m :p
Seece (on 26 May 2010)
5.5 by Halo Reach's release? 6 if it keeps up this weeks level of sales.
Skeeuk (on 21 May 2010)
got this yesterday, very good game
axumblade (on 14 May 2010)
5 million This Week! :D
KillerJawz (on 06 May 2010)
@blue, oh the beta is definatly helping this game out. Backed with basically, this game having a multiplayer (even if its a temporary one like halo reach) it's still something which was missed in this package, and will probably increase sales by a good 100k imo.
donsterydo2 (on 06 May 2010)
5 m next week
blue7x7 (on 01 May 2010)
I wonder how much this game will sell overall. For a game that got a lot of hate for apparently being an overpriced expansion it's doing really well. Could potentially do 6-7 million lifetime seeing how the legs are on this 40,597 in it's 31th week I guess the Halo Reach beta is helping it's sales out.
enrageorange (on 28 April 2010)
heh got back above gears 2 in terms of sales over same time period. I think it has a shot at passing both gears and maybe COD WW
ArcticGabe (on 27 April 2010)
5 million in two weeks
coolbeans (on 19 April 2010)
@Solid_Snake4RD
All of a sudden you've never heard of legs and Halo? I'm not sure about reaching 7-8 mil but I'm just saying. Since when has DLC ='d expansion?
MonstaMack (on 18 April 2010)
@Solid_Snake4RD The 360 still has a good 2+ years left it will easily do 7 million over the next few years. It will be cheaper by then (Platinum Hit) and still has the Halo name. It's also bundled with Forza 3 this spring.
nomorehalo (on 16 April 2010)
Could possibly pass the original's 6.5 million?
blue7x7 (on 15 April 2010)
Still has legs 34,000 in it's 29th week very impressive. This will definitely reach 5 million especially with the upcoming beta for Halo Reach.
Bagaren85 (on 24 March 2010)
I enjoyed it. But nothing so big that Reach will be,
zzyoshiman (on 20 March 2010)
nobody plays this game anymore
tio_coyote (on 13 March 2010)
This game wasnt that good IMO, hope bungee redeem themselves with Reach
vashkey (on 28 February 2010)
@ Gearbox

Locally you can do either 2-player split-screen or 4-player over lan. Unfortunately, no 4-player split-screen.
Gearbox (on 22 February 2010)
i need to rent this. can u do 4 player offline splitscreen horde mode thing (not sure what it was called... firefight?)
Mr Puggsly (on 11 February 2010)
I would expect a sales boost when the beta rolls around. Especially if there is a price drop by then.
Wandamaximoff (on 15 January 2010)
amazing! love this game! great numbers too
Seece (on 06 January 2010)
Going to end it's holiday run at 4.5 million, that's great! 5 - 6 mill lifetime, possibly more. hopefully the legs are good.
MonstaMack (on 04 January 2010)
@Kai as others have stated not every 360 user has Live. There are plenty of people who play this off line and still system link and local multiplayer and what not (in fact I know several co-workers who had Halo 3 but no Live) but anyways It's time for me to eat some Crow cause I did not imagine this selling 4.5 million till the holidays. Though even with Reach out I can still see this selling near 7 million now. Pretty damn good for a "expansion" priced at $60.
Chairman-Mao (on 03 January 2010)
Not as good as Halo 3, but still a fun game.
FaRmLaNd (on 31 December 2009)
I'm a sale that doesn't count on the bungie tracker since I haven't bought gold for about a year.
Kenoid (on 31 December 2009)
Yea, quite true
Bagaren85 (on 30 December 2009)
Great legs
Seece (on 29 December 2009)
Last time I heard, less than 25 million people were on live. That's about 5 - 10 million people that couldn't be tracked.
Boneitis (on 27 December 2009)
@ Kai Master
Obviously not everyone has their console online. Those numbers must also include rentals and people who borrowed the game.
Strategyking92 (on 25 December 2009)
because to be on bungie tracker you have to play the game online?
The fact is, and I know this sounds weird, but not everybody has a good internet connection.
Kai Master (on 25 December 2009)
I can't understand how sales are 4.18M when you see LTD players on Bungie site at 3,599,649
vashkey (on 24 December 2009)
ODST is now the tenth best selling 360 game!
nofingershaha (on 18 December 2009)
one more week and it hits 4 million
coolbeans (on 15 December 2009)
I wonder how big of a spike in sales we'll see when the Reach beta's out. I wouldn't be suprised if it jumped 100k+ in sales that week.
nofingershaha (on 15 December 2009)
sales of ODST will drop when Reach comes out
Seece (on 14 December 2009)
Adjusted up 125k.
Boneitis (on 08 December 2009)
Well the sales of this game are definitely blowing away a lot of expectations.

I think people forget sales should remain pretty strong for the life of the 360.
mexitalrish (on 06 December 2009)
this game has held up sp much better than i expected. after that quick drop off, it really has bounced back in it's sales numbers
vashkey (on 06 December 2009)
Lol, week 10 was better than week 4.
Seece (on 06 December 2009)
150k, little below what I expected, still 4+ mill by 2010 possibly 4.3+
IxisNaugus (on 01 December 2009)
Finally grabbed a copy of this. Don't worry people, it'll sell fine, and this game is great by the way.
PlaystaionGamer (on 29 November 2009)
think it will top at about 6mil maybe 6.5 depending on when Reach comes out
Seece (on 27 November 2009)
4 mill is nothing, it's gonna go beyond that.

Next week is black friday, wouldn't be surprised to see it do 180k in America alone next week.
donsterydo2 (on 27 November 2009)
Wow, great boost in US - over 4m at the end of the year confirmed :-)
Bagaren85 (on 27 November 2009)
Good boost!
Boneitis (on 26 November 2009)
Wow, week 9 got a big boost.
MarshmallowMan (on 25 November 2009)
Enjoyed the new co-op mode a lot. Still think it should have been priced as an expansion, though.
Egghead (on 25 November 2009)
So MW2 on Wii is better and Conduit is just as good.

I really wish right now that ODST was a Wii game!
Flackattack51694 (on 24 November 2009)
wow bet you guys feel great paying full price for an expansion ppl tried to boycot mw2? jesus should have been doing it to this crap
Nightwish224 (on 20 November 2009)
You shall be mine on Xmas!
coolbeans (on 19 November 2009)
Wow this game has solid legs, 4 mil by the end of the year looks locked for it.
Boneitis (on 13 November 2009)
I thought this game would only sell 4 or 5 million at first. But I guess this could potentially move 7 or 8 million in the coming years and after price drops.
donsterydo2 (on 13 November 2009)
Wow, look at week number 6 & 7 :D
piggychan (on 06 November 2009)
that 1.8 is basically the first month sales in USA according to NPD

http://news.vgchartz.com/news.php?id=5512

and it looks like we undertracked it here as 1.68
ArcticGabe (on 05 November 2009)
Nice sales Should top 4 million soon.
Barozi (on 05 November 2009)
no it's not wrong. There's a thread about it.
Go check it out.
realill (on 05 November 2009)
It should be wrong.
realill (on 05 November 2009)
http://www.mcvuk.com/news/36372/Halo-3-ODST-sales-top-18m

Says that ODST sold only 1.8m.
coolbeans (on 31 October 2009)
Your number will probably be crushed by summer of next year, KeyStyle. :P
KeyStyle (on 30 October 2009)
4.6 m. LT
Boneitis (on 29 October 2009)
Nice, sales were more than enough to do 3 million already. I hope sales hit 4 million by Christmas.
coolbeans (on 26 October 2009)
I know I'm just talking about nofingershaha's post. I just found it funny since they've already bundled it in the EU area (and american? I'm not sure).
Boneitis (on 26 October 2009)
@ coolbeans
The bundle was planned before its release and the price converted to American is about $400. So they aren't just giving the games away.
coolbeans (on 26 October 2009)
lol It's already bundled with Halo 3 in Europe area (not sure about here).
nofingershaha (on 26 October 2009)
who thinks this will be bundled together next year's christmas
Aion (on 24 October 2009)
Yeah it can hit 3 million next week, it will have a major holiday boost.
hunter_alien (on 24 October 2009)
The thing is that Reach will come next year and that will most deffinatly kill ODST. Im going with 5-6 million LT, tough some bundles could seriously skew my prediction :-P
MonstaMack (on 24 October 2009)
Why is everyone saying 5 million or less life time?

I'll go with 7 million. I'll view this wall post a few years down the road and see what happens. It should reach 4.5 million by Christmas thanks to holiday sales. There are will be a TON of people asking this for Christmas I bet.
donsterydo2 (on 24 October 2009)
Halo 3 made 50% of its total sales in first 5 weeks and other 50% in almost two years. So till Reach comes out ODST should sell around 4.5m
ACEtheVAMPIRE (on 23 October 2009)
awesome game
awesome sales
FaRmLaNd (on 14 October 2009)
Absolutely love firefight and the new campaign.
IxisNaugus (on 14 October 2009)
5 million lifetime minimum definitely. Gotta get this one.
FaRmLaNd (on 12 October 2009)
Going to buy this today!!!11
nathantay (on 12 October 2009)
Not as good as the Halo trilogy but still a solid game. 8/10
Barozi (on 11 October 2009)
It had the same drop as Halo 3.
Relax people.
ElectronicRocker (on 10 October 2009)
lifetime sales will be 5-6 million
because nobody wants odst anymore when mw2 is released
halo reach will do 7-8 million
Aion (on 10 October 2009)
Yeah 2nd week seems small but Holiday sales will be amazing for this.
FootballFan (on 09 October 2009)
5.5 million lifetime.
Fenristh (on 09 October 2009)
Doesn't really matter with a launch like that, lol.
coolbeans (on 09 October 2009)
Wow, 2nd week sales a little flatter then I expected.
Bagaren85 (on 09 October 2009)
Soon 3M, and it will keep on to move from stores. 5-7M, No problem.
Seece (on 09 October 2009)
After 2 weeks, the 14th best selling game on 360.

Will be in the top ten by 2010!
Seece (on 09 October 2009)
The drop off is to be expected, just like Halo 3's was ....
sonicshuffle (on 09 October 2009)
Game is great except for one thing. No matchmaking for Firefight? Seriously WTF?
Boneitis (on 09 October 2009)
@ snyperdud
That's because people bought it when it came out. Not a lot of games hit 2 million first week.
snyperdud (on 09 October 2009)
Thats an enormous drop-off in NA.

Boneitis (on 07 October 2009)
@ Blackmoor
Well its a Halo game. What would you expect to be on it?

A lot of games sell because they're apart of a successful IP.
donsterydo2 (on 07 October 2009)
This game is very good. Great work Bungie.

And it's not an Expansion !
CaptainDJ (on 06 October 2009)
This games Amazing!
account2099 (on 05 October 2009)
2.2 million with weaker marketing, being an expansion, and being criticized for being overpriced.

very nice
Haste262 (on 03 October 2009)
I much prefer this to halo 3 original.
huaxiong90 (on 03 October 2009)
One hell of a beast.
Notorius.A.i.G (on 03 October 2009)
This game is beast
Boneitis (on 02 October 2009)
I wonder what next weeks sales will be. I'm guessing 500K.
coolbeans (on 02 October 2009)
Ahh okay, thx madskillz
point x (on 02 October 2009)
halo rules ha ha ha ha
Theo (on 02 October 2009)
Hot Damn America! You like your Halo games!
madskillz (on 02 October 2009)
@ Coolbeans - you need to keep your ODST disc. There'll be more info on the bungie.net site about that beta.
coolbeans (on 01 October 2009)
Anyone know what's up with the Halo: Reach beta? I know it's an invitation but what's the news on that?
IxisNaugus (on 01 October 2009)
Great openings! Need to get my copy soon.
Bagaren85 (on 01 October 2009)
Nice first week!
specialops787 (on 29 September 2009)
@Boneitis
Well, I guess in that respect ODST does come new new multiplayer (Reach Beta)?

Firefight is pretty cool though, should help the fun factor last till Reach Beta.
Boneitis (on 29 September 2009)
@ specialops787
Agreed, considering I already own Halo 3 and purchased the map packs I feel mislead.

I did enjoy the campaign but I guess we're going to have to wait for Halo Reach in regards to a new multiplayer experience.
specialops787 (on 28 September 2009)
Does anyone else feel misinformed about the multiplayer? I was expecting ODST multiplayer, not regular Halo 3 with a few extra maps...
coolbeans (on 28 September 2009)
Although I enjoy the game, I find Horde mode quite a bit better than Firefight although the secondary skulls made it so much fun (confetti headshots to grunts lol). Maybe it's just how well balanced Horde Mode is although it can be long.
Rawnchie14 (on 28 September 2009)
This game is a blast to play with others, especially with the Vidmaster challenges and the Firefight goals (becomes pure havoc on Legendary)
Shadowfest3 (on 28 September 2009)
I played a round of Firefight at my friend's place who has it and it was freakin' AWESOME! I didn't do well, but I had a lot of fun! I wanted to see the campaign but didn't get a chance. When I get the money I will be picking this up!
Green Penguin (on 27 September 2009)
Lifetime sales-5.2 Million
I LOVE GIGGS (on 25 September 2009)
I love the campaign in this game. A lot better than Halo 3 campaign.
piggychan (on 25 September 2009)
got it today the collectors edition with ltd ed controller. pretty good and I already feel its much better than halo 3. love the atmosphere in this. although some of those corridors are rediculously dark
Bagaren85 (on 24 September 2009)
Got my two ex, one giving away to brother. Only finished first part and some 30 min firegiht. I like it, graphics smoother and gameplay motivates me. Not an expansion like some sad. Fullgame worhtly! \o/
Rawnchie14 (on 22 September 2009)
Got it, and I thought the Johnson deal was limited to GameStop - but got it with BestBuy - interesting...
dsister44 (on 17 September 2009)
I can't wait for this game. I'm just sad that I won't be able to pick it up first day. :-(
Seece (on 17 September 2009)
2.5 mill first week.
vashkey (on 17 September 2009)
I'm calling at least 2 mill in the first couple of weeks. At least 4 mill by year's end.
haxxiy (on 14 September 2009)
I predict massive sales >:)
Bravo315 (on 13 September 2009)
I predict 1.8m first week.
DirtyP2002 (on 08 September 2009)
I think 2 million first week might be actually low end, judging by the pre-orders.
krimoz911 (on 02 September 2009)
Too bad, leaked to the internet today
coolbeans (on 18 August 2009)
Hmmm seems odd that there's no announcement from MS yet saying how many pre-orders ODST has. Hopefully Games-con will give some insight on how it's projected to sell the first few weeks.
Sardauk (on 18 August 2009)
Pre-ordered.
deathgod33 (on 13 August 2009)
pre-ordered it, cant wait!
Al-kin (on 09 August 2009)
1st week sales between gears 2 and halo 3
kiefer23 (on 31 July 2009)
Don't be silly. Nobody is going to spend $60 for 3 mythic mapack maps.
CaptainDJ (on 23 July 2009)
I think this will sell 2.5 million on the first week because you get the Mythic maps for Halo 3, and I'm pretty sure thats the main reason most people will buy it for.
sabby_e17 (on 22 July 2009)
Pro-order this for cheap while you can at Amazon.co.uk.
http://www.amazon.co.uk/s/ref=nb_ss_w_h__0_8?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=halo+odst&x=0&y=0&sprefix=halo+ods
vashkey (on 30 June 2009)
I'm betting this will sell about 1.5 mill on first week.
kiefer23 (on 18 June 2009)
Also for the UK users you can order this for a cheap 26.99 at Argos here. Best order fast before they raise the price or something!

http://www.argos.co.uk/static/Product/partNumber/5735332.htm?storeId=10001
kiefer23 (on 18 June 2009)
I bet that this will outsell Killzone 2 in its first week.
matt247 (on 08 June 2009)
@Strategyking92
It will include every map and it will play off that disc so you won't need Halo 3
Strategyking92 (on 27 May 2009)
this is still going to include the legendary and mythic maps packs, isn't it?
Whirlz (on 12 May 2009)
Hope it sells good, and i hope the forging will be better like adding a auto lock feature, im going to get it cause i would like to try to play as a ODST Marine sounds fun
CaptainDJ (on 12 May 2009)
They should make Halo 3 and ODST in a bundle, to boost up the sales even more.
Halo_John (on 10 May 2009)
This game is gonna sell.......
Shadowfest3 (on 04 March 2009)
I love Halo 3 and I look forward to getting this game also.
halogamer1989 (on 04 February 2009)
1st day buy for me.
toastboy44562 (on 19 January 2009)
This game is gonna kick ass!
revovichfan12 (on 05 January 2009)
i bet it will be 40 bucks. Can't wait for Fall 2009 with this, Uncharted 2, CODMW2, Ratchet and Clank Future 3, along with the hit games that haven't been announced yet.
MrBirdTurd (on 30 November 2008)
Cant wait. I hope its a good price
