Would be nice to get some official figures for the Halo games.
Welfare (on 25 July 2014)
Does VGC count all versions of this game? Looking back at old NPD data, USA first year is severely under tracked. NPD has it at 4.82 million in the first year, VGC is 4.24 million. Unless VGC put those missing sales in 2008, Halo 3 could already be at 12.5 million.

halo1pistol (on 17 July 2014)
It already sold 15 million according to statsticbrain.
sales2099 (on 17 July 2014)
Due to bargin bin pricing now it should crawl to 12 million by the end of the year
halo1pistol (on 15 July 2014)
No according to stasticbrain and a couple other sites it sold 15.5 million and the 14.5 million are from the official site. I'm pretty sure Halo CE and Halo 2 combined for more than 14.5 million...more like 16 million.
Blood_Tears (on 26 June 2014)
@halo1pistol
Common mistake from Halo fans. This game has NOT sold 14.5M. When MS announced this figure it was celebrating Halo 3 sales and stating Halo 1 and 2 combined equal 14.5M. Read here and please do research before spreading fud.

halo1pistol (on 26 May 2014)
It actually sold 14.5 million not 11.9 million.
teamsilent13 (on 05 March 2014)
According to other articles back in 2008 and the timeline of sales here...Halo 3 is under-tracked by at least two million.
think-man (on 10 October 2013)
@MonstaMack If we did things that way then half of the PS3 catalog is undertracked since PS+ has had hundreds of games given away. Not only that when the Ps3 outage Infamous LBP Wipeout and some other games were given out for free. No point even mentioning them.
MonstaMack (on 08 October 2013)
FYI - This game is free to gold members for October 15th-October 31st. So throw in another 1-x million more sales for people who will download it. While that will not help It's profit/sales overall standing a sale is still a sale.
busbfran (on 01 June 2013)
12 million here we come!
Proclus (on 18 March 2013)
This one just won't quit.
iceland (on 19 February 2013)
game is still selling... damn
Mr Puggsly (on 11 January 2013)
Didn't realize this was still selling pretty well. 12 million should happen eventually.
Kizmi (on 10 January 2013)
This is exciting? It seems it might pass 12 million. This year it will probably sell 220-250k and after Next generation consoles, its sale will suffer, but to die wholely, not likely. 12 million sometimes in 2014?
enrageorange (on 04 May 2012)
while i do think halo 3 is undertracked based on old npd numbers, that 14.5mil figure is for halo 2 and halo 1 sales prior to halo 3's release.
ManciuD (on 03 May 2012)
it sold 14.5 mil copies
it sais that on halo 3 site
so 3 mil must have been sold digital
MachoMoustachio (on 01 May 2012)
Shipped 14 million.
AceRandum (on 26 February 2012)
I thought Halo 3 sold like 14mil and it was the best selling game on xbox ???/ Whats going on ???
Kizmi (on 25 February 2012)
12 million impossible coal?
man-bear-pig (on 05 February 2012)
Killtacular on team swat + perfection in the only game i ever played!!

Kai Master (on 21 January 2012)
adjusted to 11.45m ? It could finish above GTA3 !
Iveyboi (on 04 January 2012)
@man....duh it came out like 5 years before
man-bear-pig (on 03 January 2012)
333rd reviewer!!!
man-bear-pig (on 03 January 2012)
Awesome game but not as good as reach imo
goldeneye0065r (on 02 January 2012)
i hope yall know vg chartz only has access to retail sold
mitlar37 (on 26 December 2011)
Of course nobody knows how much it sold on xblm (except MS).
Mr Puggsly (on 18 December 2011)
@ kizmi - No, who ever put that on wikipedia read the source wrong. The source link was referring to the series.
Wh1pL4shL1ve_007 (on 16 December 2011)
HALO4!!!!!!
Kizmi (on 16 December 2011)
According to wikipedia at least it has sold 14.5million. Of course it could lie. But I'm sure I read somewhere that Microsoft said that Halo 3 is the best-selling game on 360. Hope so at least...
enrageorange (on 15 December 2011)
Numbers are certainly not 14.5mil but it does appear undertracked. Sold 5.9mil by February 2009 according to npd. Vgchartz has USA numbers at 5.5mil at that date. Considering npd doesn't count sales with those limited edition consoles. Game could be 500k-1mil undertracked in United States. http://www.vg247.com/2009/03/21/wii-fit-trumps-halo-3-sales-in-less-than-a-year/
Kai Master (on 13 December 2011)
wrong, that 14.5 is H1+H2 sales (series sales not H3 sales)
ironmanDX (on 22 November 2011)
14.5! Awesome! It should then be updated. Have a feeling though Halo 4 will ot surpass uless multi-platform. (360 & nextbox)
Kizmi (on 18 November 2011)
indeed Hudson! It's confirmed also as best seling game on x360. So it surpassed Black ops ^^
Millenium (on 14 November 2011)
Maybe not yo_john117, we'll see :) I'm rooting for Halo 4 to do it for sure though
cars298 (on 09 November 2011)
i like its victims
hudsoniscool (on 03 November 2011)
microsoft has this game at 14.5 million chech wiki. awsome
yo_john117 (on 28 October 2011)
I guess if it kept getting sold for another 3-4 years I could see it breaking the 12 million mark.
hudsoniscool (on 08 October 2011)
In 5 year if 360 games r still made than ya i think it will cause in the last year its done 300k
yo_john117 (on 24 September 2011)
I don't think this will get to 12 million.
Millenium (on 10 August 2011)
Could actually manage 12 million lifetime i reckon, depending on the success of Anniversary and Halo 4, users who have previously not played this game, might pick it up cheap.
Kizmi (on 19 July 2011)
12million lifetime?
hudsoniscool (on 05 July 2011)
i agree halo has the best competitive multiplayer out there. gears is second but its not tactical like halo is.
yahoocom1984 (on 02 July 2011)
Not really, Halo is just Unreal/quake rip-off
Kai Master (on 02 July 2011)
@slipknotfan : Halo is the best online multiplayer FPS ever, your son has good taste ^^
Machina (on 01 July 2011)
Hi!
oliist (on 28 June 2011)
Hi, Machina.
slipknotfan (on 26 June 2011)
Once again I dont get the point of this franchise but my son loves it.
blue7x7 (on 15 June 2011)
My favorite halo game in the series it's just so much freaking fun. I've played the single player game so many times because of it's replay value. I honestly don't think reach will outsell it in the long run.
Kai Master (on 04 June 2011)
@Clever-Spartan : Halo 1 + 2 = 14.5M, the text must have been written before H3 release.
Clever-Spartan (on 21 May 2011)
My bad :/
hudsoniscool (on 18 May 2011)
reach is tracking behind halo 3 110k in emeaa but ahead ww by 490k.
hudsoniscool (on 18 May 2011)
sparten that says halo as a series(so halo 1 and 2) had sold more than 14.5 million
Clever-Spartan (on 14 May 2011)
According to 343 (the people who control the Halo franchise), this game has sold 14.5 million copies world wide. Don't believe me? Type Halo 3 in Google, click on the link that says "Halo 3 - Halo Official Site", and read the description. It says that Halo 3 has sold 14.5 million copies. Sorry CoD! Halo wins on the Xbox!
retardedramirez (on 08 May 2011)
Overrated TRASH
hudsoniscool (on 20 March 2011)
sorry ahead 75k in emeaa
hudsoniscool (on 20 March 2011)
its traking behind reach 500k in americas and behind 75k in emeaa.
Kai Master (on 13 March 2011)
H:R could reach 12M in the end...
yahoocom1984 (on 17 February 2011)
Of course Black ops will pass this game very easily, I will say give it 1 more month, them we will see
dsage01 (on 02 February 2011)
wow black ops hasn't passed this game yet holding off pretty good legs!
extagénesis (on 23 December 2010)
Halo 3 sells over 600,000 units this 2010!
MightyGeorge (on 02 December 2010)
Modern Warfare 2
donsterydo2 (on 27 May 2010)
It will break another limit for HD console next week.
spartan117 (on 26 May 2010)
Halo 3 will be the first 360 game to hit 11m!
SlipperyMooseCakes (on 26 May 2010)
11 million next week!
AnthonyW86 (on 14 May 2010)
Someone change that title soon, cause it won't be the best selling 360 game for long. It is about to be beat by a multi-plat game lol.
down-down-down-down- (on 09 May 2010)
it will reach 11 Million before halo reach release for sure.
KillerJawz (on 06 May 2010)
Damn almost 11m O.o...
Smeags (on 29 April 2010)
@CoolBeans

Yeah, I keep getting his voicemail too... (Hey! This is the Chief! I'm in Cryo now, so stay cool! Haha! How do you turn this thing off now *beep*) Does anyone have his home number? I only have his cell. :\
coolbeans (on 28 April 2010)
@Smeags
I keep getting his "in cryo" voicemail. Do you think he has a pager :P.
Kenoid (on 23 April 2010)
@Mr Puggsly,
Yeah you're right, now so far people buy this game for the multiplayer. Reach will end its domain =)
Smeags (on 23 April 2010)
Someone needs to tell The Chief that some Modern Warfare punks are on his tail. Something needs to be done about this uprising and fast!
Mr Puggsly (on 20 April 2010)
@ Kenoid
Well every mega selling game catches crap. The reason they sell great is because they have mass appeal, not because they're perfect games.

Halo is a blast but people expect something mind blowing because of the popularity.
Kenoid (on 11 April 2010)
I don't really boher about other people's opinion, but a "lousy" game won't sell like this
ChrisIsNotSexy (on 08 April 2010)
@zaMy
MW2 will be first it seems
Mutiverse37 (on 08 April 2010)
Have you ever played a game that you really really 'want' to like, but didn't? I guess FPS just aren't for me. I do like the whole Sci-Fi element though :)
toastboy44562 (on 07 April 2010)
adjusted up it seems
leo-j (on 05 April 2010)
Just amazing, these sales are just amazing
m1987mp (on 31 March 2010)
I don't really like this game
zaMy (on 29 March 2010)
first 11 million selling game on any HD console, nice work microsoft!
FaRmLaNd (on 29 March 2010)
My most played game of the generation by far!
Carl2291 (on 05 March 2010)
11m in 10-15 weeks? :-)
hellraider (on 24 February 2010)
Just got it for 5 euros used in a way too good to be true condition!
Now I only have to wait 4 more months for my national exams to end and I'll play the shit out of it online :D
elticker (on 23 February 2010)
Great game hopefully it will reach 11.5-12 million life time
Mr Puggsly (on 15 February 2010)
@ Seece
Well MW2 is selling great yet MW1 and WaW are still selling pretty well.

No reason to think that Halo: Reach will hurt the sales of Halo 3.
Seece (on 14 February 2010)
Should hit 11 mill around june, I'm lowering lifetime to 12/13 mill now, Halo Reach is going steal a lot of it's sales.
ash31 (on 13 February 2010)
this game is still selling amazing
elvacano80 (on 01 February 2010)
its still selling strong..something you dont c in other consoles =pp..this is 07..so dont flame >.>
Mr Puggsly (on 29 January 2010)
@ chickenLittle
Well the 360 still has about 4 years of life and this game is still selling pretty well. Its not impossible.
chickenLittle (on 27 January 2010)
no way it will reach 15M.

PlaystaionGamer (on 25 January 2010)
these sales are crazy. depending on how long the 360 is out for. im guessing around 13million LTD which is amazing
headshot91 (on 22 January 2010)
You dont think it wil lbe quick? MW2 will overtake it in a matter of months!
donsterydo2 (on 11 January 2010)
At some point it could pass it but it won't be quick.
brute (on 10 January 2010)
I don't think so, and I also don't want it to surpass it in sales :-P
Kenoid (on 10 January 2010)
Who thinks MW2 for 360 will surpass Halo 3 sales?
vashkey (on 09 January 2010)
Halo 3 just joined the platinum hits line.
elticker (on 08 January 2010)
@ playstation gamer
:) bungie even gives us map packs for free like herioc and cold storage. Only pay for legendry and its only 600ms not like call of dauty which keeps pumping map packs and not a single one is free.
PlaystaionGamer (on 05 January 2010)
WOW!

im happy that a game like Halo which actually has alot of effort put in by the developer and great story is selling so well. wish more games like this would sell more and games like COD would sell less!
Kenoid (on 04 January 2010)
Lol
piggychan (on 02 January 2010)
damnit people stop buying this game and buy something else!! :o
Kenoid (on 31 December 2009)
I think it will hit 11million or more when Reach comes, because I'm not expecting much for a almost 3 year old game, even though I still play it
spacetattoo82 (on 21 December 2009)
love it, great game.
chazy13 (on 13 December 2009)
this will hit 10.5 million next week
amazing
Seece (on 12 December 2009)
10:70 on track.

11:50 by the time Reach hits.
Boneitis (on 07 December 2009)
@ sabby_e17
Call me crazy but I think Halo 3 will sell far more than 12 million.

The 360 should sell maybe 30 million more units within the coming years. That game is a staple and sales should remain strong.
chazy13 (on 07 December 2009)
well this game sold over 50,000 coppies on BF week so its nice to see its still selling
sabby_e17 (on 06 December 2009)
Should see 12 million+ LT.
down-down-down-down- (on 06 December 2009)
amazing sales in america...respect!
ps3_jrpg_gamer (on 07 November 2009)
halo 3 will still sell in year 2018
zaMy (on 06 November 2009)
@squall

every year theres a new Call of Duty game, so it basically has a year to sell. Halo 3 had 2 years of profiting/ amazing sales with a higher marketing campaign.

Obviosly Halo3 will still sell more
sexc_abbas10 (on 06 November 2009)
just want to know how much BUNGIE profitied from this game
squall747 (on 02 November 2009)
I wonder if MW2 can sell more then Halo 3. Only counting Xbox 360 sales to keep it fair. I somehow dont think so.
chazy13 (on 30 October 2009)
wow halo 3 is a beast
AnthonyW86 (on 16 October 2009)
MW2 is going to finally dethrone Halo 3. MW2 might just come in under Halo 3 first week in America, but it's going to sell way more in Others.
angrypoolman (on 12 October 2009)
i got this game
zaMy (on 12 October 2009)
this game is a tank.
no one can take it out
not even the u.s. army
i dont know where im going with this,
O.T. this game is doing MAZING
headshot91 (on 09 October 2009)
lol america;s first week is bigger than japans and others total sales in 2 years!!!!
Barozi (on 09 October 2009)
@Bagaren85

At least 15,287,889 people.
But then add those who own the game and don't have a XBL membership....
Bagaren85 (on 09 October 2009)
Damn sick great sales! I was so son it passed 10M. Now 10.2.

And think of all who bought it preowned, like my brother did twice. My guess, no safe card, is that at least 15M have played Halo 3 up to day.
Seece (on 01 October 2009)
10.70 by 2010 barring no adjustments. 12 mill by 2011
account2099 (on 21 September 2009)
specialops787

1 in 3 attach ratio is amazing.

divide Killzone 2 1.8 sales into 24 million..........ya.
headshot91 (on 18 September 2009)
I want to play this game but have no 360 :(
Seece (on 08 September 2009)
@ Specialops - I imagine Halo 3 has been played by around 20 million gamers, COD4 has been played by 14 million on 360. so I imagine it's higher for Halo 3.

TiagoCosta (on 07 September 2009)
used games + rent...
specialops787 (on 07 September 2009)
im really surprised there are 20 million people who have a 360 but no Halo 3.
SlipperyMooseCakes (on 06 September 2009)
It will make it to 11 mil way before 2011. With an average of 30k sales a week and ODST coming out it will hit 11 million easily.
Seece (on 04 September 2009)
11 mill by 2010!
user_nat (on 04 September 2009)
What? It probably sold over 9m without bundles. It was at 8m after 3 months, and there was definently no bundles then.
Horrorfest (on 03 September 2009)
So how many millions came from bundles? It probably sold 6 or 7 million without bundles. Joystiq shouldn't count bundles.
coolbeans (on 02 September 2009)
lol really? some people would still consider cod4 the best FPS this gen? The hype's over guys (saying that), cod4's overrated. This is common knowledge ;)
PlaystaionGamer (on 31 August 2009)
i think if ODST wasnt coming out this could hit 15million...that would be HUGE, 10mil is huge but 15 on a single platform FPS...WOW, well done halo 3
deathgod33 (on 29 August 2009)
@dhummel, stop the fps wars COD4 won a long time ago

but this is still a great game- i think it'l stop at 11.5 million
Aion (on 28 August 2009)
I hope this gets a huge boost this holiday, as deserved.
dhummel (on 28 August 2009)
@Gearbox - no Halo 3 is
kiefer23 (on 27 August 2009)
Another 20k. Will this game ever stop selling :P?
Gearbox (on 27 August 2009)
@sly777 - no cod4 is
TiagoCosta (on 26 August 2009)
12 mil end of sales?
sly777 (on 26 August 2009)
simply the best fps of all time
Gearbox (on 22 August 2009)
Woooo nice sallleeeessssss this game is still fun today which is suprising
Rawnchie14 (on 20 August 2009)
10 prior to the OSDT pop, fun stuff!
I LOVE GIGGS (on 20 August 2009)
Its going to outsell Killzone2 in america next week (in 2009 only)!!!
Majin-Tenshinhan (on 20 August 2009)
I'm not a fan of Halo, but it's nice to see effort getting rewarded. Congratulations Bungie and Microsoft.
Sanzee (on 18 August 2009)
Congratulations Bungie and MGS!
vashkey (on 16 August 2009)
Wooo! Ten mill.

@Kyjoe9 - No way. Not near as much hype going around it and I doubt that near as many people will buy it since part of it is essentially Halo 3. It even Has Halo 3 in the title. But it'll probably sell at least four or five million copies in it's life span.
kyjoe9 (on 16 August 2009)
I wonder if halo 3 odst will sell as many copies as halo 3?
Bagaren85 (on 15 August 2009)
Awesome, congratz. Well rewarded 10 M. Live for ever
RockSmith372 (on 14 August 2009)
YIPPEE!!!! 10 Million!!!
piggychan (on 14 August 2009)
10 mill !!!!!!!!! was just doing 4 player campaign too... that last bit where everything was colapsing and you have to drive out of there... such a pain
Skeeuk (on 14 August 2009)
great
MontanaHatchet (on 14 August 2009)
Congrats Halo 3 on 10 million!
Aion (on 14 August 2009)
Yeah 10 million!!!! Great sales.
kiefer23 (on 13 August 2009)
Gratz Bungie/Microsoft!
HelloMotto (on 11 August 2009)
halo and CoD proves that america is obsessed with FPS games
penguin (on 11 August 2009)
10 million !!!!!!!!!!!!!!....
coolbeans (on 10 August 2009)
Correction, 34th 10 mil selling game
coolbeans (on 10 August 2009)
lol yes nothing to celebrate here, not like there's been only less than 50 games to ever sell 10 mil. copies /sarcasm
Skeeuk (on 09 August 2009)
dunno whats there to celebrate...............you only have 1 copy of the game?

ive gotten this game back, im gonna have a playthrough in coop
metalgearmatt (on 09 August 2009)
inbefore10million!!
Halo_John (on 09 August 2009)
10 million here we come!
Bitmap Frogs (on 08 August 2009)
In time for the 10 million celebration!
Strategyking92 (on 08 August 2009)
IT'S IN THE TOP TEN THIS WEEK????? WTF! How did I not notice that?
I still think sales will slow considerably following ODST. Time will tell though.
sonicshuffle (on 08 August 2009)
Just 20,000 more come on Halo!
st_muscat0 (on 07 August 2009)
Will sell 10 mill on its 98 week out, congrats Bungie on making a game that doesn't even need a 100 weeks to sell ten million copies on a system that over its lifetime (halo 3) had about an average of only 25 million uberbase.
Seece (on 07 August 2009)
Ha, 12 mill is guarenteed. This game sells upwards of 500k each christmas. Even if it dips below 20k a week next year it will still get over a million each year. 13 - 15 million is where it will finish.
Strategyking92 (on 07 August 2009)
12 million is definetly not out of the question. Sales will only slow more and more after ODST I think.
coolbeans (on 06 August 2009)
It could but I forsee it bringing Halo 3 sales to a dead halt, personally.
kiefer23 (on 06 August 2009)
10mil next week finally! This game could easily hit 12m+ as it's highly possible that it will be bundled with Halo ODST and maybe Reach + ODST.
Kenpachi15 (on 06 August 2009)
9.98! :O
indodude (on 06 August 2009)
WIN WIN WIN WIN WIN.

10M here we go!
PlaystaionGamer (on 03 August 2009)
wow great sales! well done halo 3!
Hephaestos (on 03 August 2009)
Nice it'll hit 10M on week 99 :p would have been even more simbolic at week 100 but oh well =D
FaRmLaNd (on 31 July 2009)
Halo 3 is still played by millions of people. So I guess its gameplay and replay value are just fine!
Seece (on 31 July 2009)
2 weeks to go!
monlosez (on 31 July 2009)
lol why do we cares about lighting effects. Shouldn't replay value and gameplay be more important?
coolbeans (on 26 July 2009)
I wouldn't go that far but yes, K2 does have better lighting effects. Besides ylowblade he's probably never played K2 yet so why any need to flame him for games he may have just played? Let's be rational about this....
account2099 (on 23 July 2009)
If MS is smart, they bundle this for the holidays.

also.........amazing how every Halo fps sells more then the last!
Strategyking92 (on 21 July 2009)
bundles don't account for many copies. If you want a high number, 1 million. But that isn't saying much since halo 3 will sell beyond 10 million, it isn't going to suddenly stop, although sales will slow because of ODST.
My reasoning for that is because friends of a person would be buying ODST so they would have all of the MP maps. Believe it or not, some people do buy the game because their friends play online.
sabby_e17 (on 21 July 2009)
Almost 10 million!
Theo (on 20 July 2009)
wow, this is as big as wow
RockSmith372 (on 20 July 2009)
halo 3 was destined to get over 10 million before it was even released.
Infamous (on 20 July 2009)
@KillerMan

That's only the elite, and there's not that many bundles out there, so no.

These legs have been strong for a long, long time now, and they're only going to get stronger with ODST.

Isn't this bundled in america with Fable 2? It explains these massive legs.
coolbeans (on 19 July 2009)
Ahh okay, well I can't argue with that but I still see a sales hike when ODST is coming.
FaRmLaNd (on 19 July 2009)
No they mean the franchise has peaked. As in they all think its downhill from here sales wise. Which I don't think is necessarily true.
Rawnchie14 (on 14 July 2009)
The legs on Halo 3 are unreal - plus there will be another little pop when OSDT comes out. Craziness
kiefer23 (on 13 July 2009)
9.92 next week, 9.95 after that, then 9.98 and then 10.01!
coolbeans (on 13 July 2009)
Not sure what that's supposed to mean FaRmLaNd since even though Halo 3 sales have now "peaked" doesn't mean sales won't be generated especially when you consider it's now bundled.
TiagoCosta (on 13 July 2009)
even japan sales are not that bad... halo is a blockbuster indeed
FaRmLaNd (on 13 July 2009)
No no. Halo has now "Peaked" according to some people.
Seece (on 09 July 2009)
127k to go!!!
Seece (on 09 July 2009)
You tell em Moosecakes!!
SlipperyMooseCakes (on 08 July 2009)
You guys remember all those people that said Halo 3 wouldn't sell as much as Halo 2, or if it did it would only sell a little bit better.

Yeah.
FaRmLaNd (on 08 July 2009)
Over 7 million in America. Fantastic.
coolbeans (on 08 July 2009)
@metalgearmatt
lol yea it would be especially if it hit 9.99 mil and just went to a dead half :P
account2099 (on 07 July 2009)
God bless Halo
kiefer23 (on 07 July 2009)
It will hit 10million at the end of July.
metalgearmatt (on 06 July 2009)
Wouldn't it be funny if it never passes 10m?
TheConduit (on 06 July 2009)
Considering how hyped this game was and how big the American Xbox360 base is compared to its others counterpart its not unreasonable to think it couldnt surpase LTTD sales with week one
FootballFan (on 04 July 2009)
More was sold 1st week in USA than has been sold in Europe.
TheConduit (on 30 June 2009)
First Xbox game ever to surpass 10 million
MorgZ (on 28 June 2009)
@Kiefer23: hence why they are keen to launch as many Halo branded games as possible!
kiefer23 (on 27 June 2009)
Just think. Microsoft have probably made around $700 million off of this game.
TiagoCosta (on 27 June 2009)
the first game ´xbox´that will pass 10 mil
BocaJuniors (on 25 June 2009)
sry 190k. XD
BocaJuniors (on 25 June 2009)
Only 19 k more. go H3
Seece (on 25 June 2009)
Wow if the Halo 3 Campaign was crap Id love to see what people have to say about other shooter campaigns *cough*
HelloMotto (on 24 June 2009)
Halo 3 single player was crap..... luckily, the Multiplayer was great.
challis (on 23 June 2009)
A good game. Amazing sales. I admit that I liked the campaign in Halo 2 more. The split screen for co-op campaign play in Halo 3 was too small.
Seece (on 22 June 2009)
This will hit 1- million weeks before ODST is due out. 10.8 mill by years end.
kiefer23 (on 22 June 2009)
This game was just adjusted up about 80k. Shame this never hit 10m before E3. The Bungie spokesman could of bought it up.
coolbeans (on 22 June 2009)
Wow, I'll say the it'll definatly be at 10mil a week or two before ODST. Whether that'll hurt or help ODST sales is a different matter.
Seece (on 22 June 2009)
Adjusted up!!!
snyperdud (on 14 June 2009)
This is a pretty fun game.

I still think Halo 2's MP was more fun, but this isn't a slouch either.
coolbeans (on 14 June 2009)
@Haloooooo, yeah that is a good point but it be hard to justify 3 extra maps, firefight, and (guessing)6-7ish hours of gameplay. But then again who knows, maybe this'll make Halo 3 sales jump hugely seems like a gamble though.
matt247 (on 13 June 2009)
It was in the top 20 of May's NPD
axumblade (on 12 June 2009)
It's about to outsell Final Fantasy VII. This game is a beast!
vashkey (on 12 June 2009)
I think theres a possibility that ODST would boost Halo 3's sell shorty. I remember God of War going back up on the sales charts when God of War 2 came out.
I think ODST will put Halo 3 back in the minds of gamers and help push it a little but after that I bet the sale will take a big dip early next year.
HALOOOOOOOO (on 12 June 2009)
@coolbeans: But there will still be people without Halo 3, and since ODST comes with extra maps maybe they'll view it as an incentive to pick it up, yah.
coolbeans (on 10 June 2009)
I actually think when Halo:ODST comes out it'll actually hurt Halo 3 sales or practically put them to a halt since it comes with all the multi maps and such. If anything, it'll need to be sold at retail stores for $30.
account2099 (on 09 June 2009)
man no Halo has ever sold this much b4.....Halo is on the rise!
Seece (on 08 June 2009)

holy crap this sold 120k in japan... they like halo ? O.o
Thechalkblock (on 02 June 2009)
@sonicshuffle

I wouldn't worry, Halo 3 will reach 10 million way before Halo Reach is out and even if it doesn't reach 10 million before Halo ODST for some odd reason, Halo ODST will make the sales pick up anyways.
sonicshuffle (on 01 June 2009)
almost at 10 mil. Get there before Halo ODST or at least before Reach
Ronster316 (on 01 June 2009)
2 more Halo's on the way.......

They will help spearhead Halo 3 to 12 million sales and beyond :-)
Seece (on 27 May 2009)
340k to go! 12 ish weeks!
IxisNaugus (on 26 May 2009)

This will easily hit 10 million in the summer. Maybe even before. Talk about legs.
PS3beats360 (on 11 May 2009)
This game is approaching 7 million sales in America and 10 million sales ltd.

I don't think it's come out. I haven't seen it at my best buy yet at least.

This game is so awesome.
elzumo (on 09 May 2009)
Has that elite bundle with this and Fable 2 already been released?

Geez, over 3 mil sales in it's first week! There's something I didn't know.
BocaJuniors (on 30 April 2009)
This and SMG are my favourites games this gen
vashkey (on 29 April 2009)
Halo_John, I doubt people would buy an entire game because there are three maps they can go out and buy off the internet.

People buy Halo 3 for Halo 3, not a hand full of maps.
Bagaren85 (on 29 April 2009)
What a huge success! ^^
Halo_John (on 29 April 2009)
halo 3 is doing better than i had expected.
I know that this game is three years old hkkaze, but its still selling because of the Mythic map pack
Trent (on 29 April 2009)
Passed 9.5 million this week
Seece (on 28 April 2009)
INSANE sales this week!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
hkKAZE (on 28 April 2009)
No offence, but this game game is so old and still in the no.24. WTF. Really is this the only game that interests players. My opinion quite overrated.
FilaBrasileiro (on 27 April 2009)
@Infamous

What does sales have to do with game quality? Keeping it 360 only, I think Gears franchise is way better than Halo franchise and Gears 2> Halo 3, but it sold way less. And don't get me started on Wii games.

Anyways, why was the hits in this game reset?
chris1_16 (on 26 April 2009)
I loved Halo: combat evolved

I hated Halo 2

I thought Halo 3 was alright but I think it's overrated
tyig (on 26 April 2009)
Halo is more than a game, it's a culture
Infamous (on 26 April 2009)
Don't mind that scrub PS3 fanboy wanna-be "Infamous," with his fanboy KZ2 icon and his desperate MGS4 comparison. He's just upset MGS4 will never have even close to HALF the sales Halo 3 does.

u mad, infamous8?? ;]
CaptainDJ (on 25 April 2009)
@infamous8

If your talking about the Campaign, then I agree with you. But I Disagree If your talking about the online.

Also I'd say this game deserves way higher than a 8.8, the only down side I think is the Story is kinda dumb, but other than that, It derverves a 9.5 alteast.
infamous8 (on 22 April 2009)
MGS4 is much better than this game.
starcraft (on 21 April 2009)
With the Elite bundling this game could pass ten million copies sold earlier than expected.
vashkey (on 20 April 2009)
Wow, Halo outsold the PS3 version of CoD WaW last week. Thats staying power.
Halo_John (on 18 April 2009)
Halo 3 Go!!
Thechalkblock (on 13 April 2009)
I can't believe first week sales.
vashkey (on 10 April 2009)
The boost is likely from it's recent price cut.
TheThunder (on 09 April 2009)
nice boost I wonder why is because the map pack ??
although it was released on April 9th so it's next week sales
numonex (on 09 April 2009)
Awesome game. It will pass 10 million before the end of 2009.

Seece (on 02 April 2009)
If it keeps selling at this rate it will reach 10 million BEFORE ODST is out ... I wonder what it will be at come January 1st 2010 ... 10.5 - 11M?
metalgearmatt (on 02 April 2009)
Please just die Halo...
FaRmLaNd (on 02 April 2009)
fantastic legs. I have no clue how high it'll end up to be honest.
vashkey (on 31 March 2009)
Well, the game recently got a price cut so that would explain the small boost in sales.
MonstaMack (on 29 March 2009)
It's going to surpass 10 million before ODST is out. I wonder how it will sell with ODST out, considering ODST will have all the maps Halo 3 had just a new campaign. Could be interesting.
Cheat1011 (on 29 March 2009)
I'm going out and predicting Halo 3 will outsell every PSOne game. It's also a given GT5 won't touch it in sales, too.
xxxvitoxxx (on 27 March 2009)

Gotta love adjustments :)
nomorehalo (on 22 March 2009)
Just as a head's up for those that don't know, NPD's report of Halo 3's 5.9 million sales does not mean it is overtracked: Vgchartz does Canadian numbers as well, NPD doesn't. I know, most of us know already, but someone was bound to shout foul.

Maybe 12 million lifetime sales for 360 only and if realesed on pc 3 million on pc alone, 15 million in total isn't nothing bad.

Thats mainly because halo is a very well established franchise. Not because halo is the better game

probably will go on to sell more than 10 million lifetime.

halo3>halo1>halo2
Shadowfest3 (on 09 February 2009)
I didn't start playing the Halo series until Halo 3 came out. That's because a friend of mine needed me to play multi-player online. I was hooked not too long after that. I bought my Xbox 360 because of this game.
SlipperyMooseCakes (on 08 February 2009)
The sales are only going to boost more with the new maps and Halo 3: ODST. It will be the best selling 360 exclusive always.

If the Halo wars/Halo 3 bundle rumours are true Halo 3 will pass 10 million sooner than we all thought.

Anyway 9 million in a little over a year....... SENSATIONAL.
FaRmLaNd (on 28 January 2009)
It will reach 10 million this year which is incredibly impressive when compared to the other two in the series (which weren't slouches either).

halo would have a chance at being as big as mario if microsoft ever has a console thats as successful as the wii. Until then halo will have to be happy with being the most successful exclusive shooter lol

I was playing this yesterday.
the SP is better than i remember.
but,still big letdown.
coonana (on 21 January 2009)
Halo is not going to beat mario being that Mario Kart is already completely outselling it and SSBB is going to outsell it soon.
DeotoxSlayer (on 21 January 2009)
@Tacoboy49

If we counted used sales then we'd be counting the same copies of the game multiple times. Plus the companies themselves make no money off of used games.
Snake (on 20 January 2009)
i hope Halo will beat Mario
Barozi (on 20 January 2009)
yeah and because of your logic Killzone + Haze + Resistance FOM + Resistance 2 + Red Steel + Black + Perfect Dark Zero + Blacksite Area 51 outsold Halo 3.....

TWO games that will sell over 10 million.

ROFL!!!! Brawl is gonna pass the game up.
FaRmLaNd (on 01 January 2009)
MW was never going to outsell halo 3. Halo 3 had achieved parity with mw weekly sales months ago and had started to beat it. Not to mention the lead it already had. People should just be happy that cod 4 did aswell as it did, which was bloody amazing.
MonstaMack (on 31 December 2008)
Of course im speaking 360 only. PS3 and 360 combined COD:MW is outselling Halo 3.
MonstaMack (on 31 December 2008)
Thanks to COD:WAW COD:Modern Warfare 1 has no chance at even coming close to Halo 3 sales now.

I wonder how Recon will do next year.
TheConduit (on 30 December 2008)
What about COD4
its sold over 11 million across all platforms.
toastboy44562 (on 30 December 2008)
man this game is awesome! I bet halo4 will be a launch tital for the xbox 720..
GranTurismoHelperMax (on 27 December 2008)
Nice game. Played it for the first time and the online is amazing where u can team up on slayer, king of the hill, etc.

Note: Valve reported 9.3 million units of Half-Life sold (without Steam sales !!!!!)

It reached Halo 2's sales in less than one third of the time.

MrChi14 (on 23 November 2008)

Truely a game that offers an EXTENSIVE amount of bang for your buck. Then with RECON next year, this game might break 10mil
-GhostMLD- (on 21 November 2008)
God I love Halo and Halo 3 totally deserves to be the first 9 million Halo.

If its bundled with 360 in 09 holiday to help fuel Recon sales (personal prediction), then 10 million+ guaranteed.
Picko (on 20 November 2008)
@ FaRmLaNd:

That's pretty much a guarantee. Halo 3 will likely continue to be on the sales charts until the next generation at least - and could continue to sell well after that if Halo 2 was any indication.
Squilliam (on 11 November 2008)
Terrible sales... if only it measured up to the sales of Solitaire. :-(
FaRmLaNd (on 07 November 2008)
Its awesome that halo 3 will be ahead of halo 2 before the end of the year. It certainly deserves it. Here's hoping it gets to 10 million.

gotta thank an increased Europe presence for that.

the 4 player online co-op is what sold me. I never played the other halo games so I was a little lost in the story since halo 3's story continues. But anyway played this 8 hour straight with online buddies.. 3 times (24 hours online gameplay for me) from start to finish and what a ride it was.
FaRmLaNd (on 18 October 2008)
You can have 4 people play online at once, not two.
oliminator1994 (on 18 October 2008)
this game is similar to resistance 2 as you can play have two people playing online at the same time!

this game is mint if i had a 360 i would get it.
segajon (on 13 October 2008)
This will easily pass 10 million.

Lol, Halo, It's so boring. I'm only playing it because of Forging.
Bitmap Frogs (on 28 September 2008)
200k to beat Halo 2 then it'll become the most succesful FPS SKU ever.
toastboy44562 (on 19 September 2008)
This game will make 10 million easy
OLDSKOOL (on 19 September 2008)
Wow 8 million now!
poonus21 (on 15 September 2008)
the best multipayer game for 360 hands down. cod4 is pretty good but in the end; forge, saving replays/photos and sharing them, and four player coop take halo 3 way over the top.
CaptainDJ (on 14 September 2008)
Forging is what makes me still play this game.
Egghead (on 02 September 2008)
Sure as heck never gets boring, but there are some seriously bad maps there
eliasg (on 02 September 2008)
6 millions copies only in America, this game is hugeee....

I still play this online and in split screen mode. It just never gets boring!

The legendary map pack is ace aswell.

Strategyking92 (on 02 August 2008)
the pc version of Halo 1 got me started on the franchise.
Great game.
slimeattack (on 02 August 2008)
When will this game come out on PC? It took 3 years for Halo 2.
segajon (on 02 August 2008)
an outstanding game that gets a bad rap from sony/nintendo fanboys/girls
RockSmith372 (on 31 July 2008)
the reason it didn't go up this week is because they adjusted the sales
Egghead (on 26 July 2008)
This is still selling, im seeing 10 mil lifetime
I LOVE GIGGS (on 23 July 2008)
250K in November and December ?
FaRmLaNd (on 23 July 2008)
I'm really interested to see how this does during the Christmas holidays. I think that will define how it sells for the rest of the gen.

FaRmLaNd (on 19 July 2008)
Halo 3 will easily surpass 8.5 million in sales. 9 million minimum. Thats my prediction. But who really knows? But it is on track to at least beating halo 2, as its tracking higher in NA, and its already beaten halo 2 in others and Japan.
quarashi (on 17 July 2008)
Nah snake, this game is going to sell until a new Halo game comes out. As much as people don't want to admit it it will sell for a long time. Halo 2 was still selling 15k on average up until the release of this game on the first XBOX.
Oemenia (on 16 July 2008)
Beaten Halo 2? WOW, with a smaller fanbase?

I dont know, ill wait, VGchartz accuracy after all
Snake612 (on 16 July 2008)
i say 8.5 lifetime sales worldwide.

Only if this game was hyped maybe it would have sold better lol

(Ps uncharted was ahead of it before uncharted got 100k hits. And a bunch of people whined that people were refeshing the page.)
LOL MATURE (on 13 July 2008)
I dont know who would be lame enough to hit enter 500k times? And I know its been hit at least 300k times cause Uncharted was ahead of it.

I tried holding down the f5 button but that didnt work.

and I tried tapping it and it worked just fine but I gave up after only 300 let alone 300,000 times. sheesh who ever did it is a loser.
Gearbox (on 13 July 2008)
Every time this page is refresh another hit is added.
Gearbox (on 13 July 2008)
There are no scripts all some1 is doing is cliking once on the HTML then hitting enter non stop.

Also, if you people consist on spamming the hits for this crap game I'll join in on samming Metal Gear!

I think someone's using scripts.
djsmith00 (on 12 July 2008)
lol at the hits... :P
MrMarc (on 11 July 2008)
I just picked this up on the cheap the other day and I cannot for the life of me understand how people go nuts over Halo.

I know the same can't be said for the multiplayer but my god the campaign is just so poor. It really is dire.

There are so many other FPS titles, even from generations long past that piss all over this game.
barakii (on 10 July 2008)
SSBB sales>Halo3 sales
FaRmLaNd (on 10 July 2008)
So you post in here and add to the hits? That makes sense.
Gearbox (on 10 July 2008)
Stop HIT SPAMMING THIS GAME FOR HITS ITS NOT THAT GOOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Stats87 (on 09 July 2008)
Wow even more hits, I think some people need a life.

This isn't the only game though, somehow MGS4 just rocketed pass 5 games and into the #2 Spot.
RockSmith372 (on 09 July 2008)
Good grief. Someone really wants Halo 3 to be the most hit game. Over 100k hits in a week

WTF???
Stats87 (on 09 July 2008)
Where did all the hits come from?
trancos (on 08 July 2008)
70k in two days, is very clear that someone wrote a bot or a script to hit this game.
RockSmith372 (on 08 July 2008)
MontanaHatchet.

that made me laugh. LOL
Gearbox (on 08 July 2008)
what do u mean montana?

once again halo has more hits WHY i don't no the game was horrible if I were to rate it I'd give it a 6/10
toastboy44562 (on 08 July 2008)
This passed uncharted in hits
MontanaHatchet (on 08 July 2008)
We have a hits hierarchy on purpose. I'm going to go and inflate Uncharted hits.
Gearbox (on 08 July 2008)
how did this game get so many hits all teh sudden? how do games get hits?
MANUELF (on 07 July 2008)
+ 70k hits in two days WOW
erikguy (on 07 July 2008)
halo is not a bad game but some of the ignorant little kids that play this seriously need to play some other good games. and not just shooters day after day.
RockSmith372 (on 07 July 2008)
how did this get back on top of the hit numbers?
t3h.pwnz0r (on 03 July 2008)

AWESOME NUMBERS !!!!
RockSmith372 (on 02 July 2008)
about time.
FaRmLaNd (on 02 July 2008)
As I predicted several weeks ago, its now selling more the cod 4 each week. We wont know for certain but cod 4 has been quickly decreasing in sales per week whilst halo 3 has stayed basically the same. So I expect halo to track above it consistently now. Halo 3 will surpass halo 2 soon enough.
Gearbox (on 01 July 2008)
8 million yay! it will only make 10 million byu the end of this gen if u think a gen is 10 years. That's what sony wants it to be Nintendo and Microsoft haven't agreed to such a long time frame
Cheat1011 (on 01 July 2008)
Like Montanahatchet said, Halo 3 will easily be at 10 million by the end of this generation.
Gearbox (on 01 July 2008)
I don't think the newer games that come out under the Halo fanchise will ever live up to these sales. They will continue to sell less and less. It won't be noticable right away thou but after a while it will become obvious.
FaRmLaNd (on 29 June 2008)
I don't think we'll see any many games in the franchise as mario, but I agree. I expect halo to be split into 3 or 4 different games or something. Halo wars, halo chronicles, halo 4 or a marathon remake starring master chief and maybe a multiplayer only halo FPS with an even larger scale or something? The last ones pure speculation obviously.
wareagle372 (on 27 June 2008)
now that the trilogy is over. It will most likely become a consistant franchise making game like Mario(except not nearly as much sales total)
Strategyking92 (on 26 June 2008)
Damn, I guess not!
FinalEvangelion (on 18 June 2008)
Very America-heavy game
FaRmLaNd (on 18 June 2008)
Two week away from hitting the 8 million mark. Halo 3 will outsell halo 2 this year.
wareagle372 (on 13 June 2008)
where is this vgchartz prediction oemenia?
Oemenia (on 12 June 2008)
VGChartz prediction is 9 million
Strategyking92 (on 11 June 2008)
sooooo..... will this be off top fifty is 1 month's time?
MontanaHatchet (on 11 June 2008)
Sales approaching 8 million soon. By generation's end, this could easily be at 10 million.
trestres (on 09 June 2008)
Sold to retailers =/= sold to customers
Cheat1011 (on 08 June 2008)
This game is severely under tracked. Microsoft has stated Halo 3 to sell 8 million copies, on JANUARY 8TH.

Source: http://www.gamespot.com/news/6184291.html
FaRmLaNd (on 08 June 2008)
I think halo 3 should hit 10 million. but not for a number of years.
wareagle372 (on 06 June 2008)
@farmland

Microsoft was expecting nothing less than 8mil. Their hopes were that it reaches 10mil, which isn't impossible(just very improbable) with the sales it has now, not to mention when the holidays come up.
FaRmLaNd (on 04 June 2008)
Closing in on 8 million. Microsoft must be really happy.
Oemenia (on 31 May 2008)
Its amazing how its outselling Halo 2 with a MUCH smaller userbase and MUCH higher 360 price-tag

Just shows MS are doing well this gen
dante (on 24 May 2008)
i think microsoft put it at 3mil in europe
Griffin (on 23 May 2008)
According to Microsoft this game sold over 8mil to retail by Christmas. I think thats why he assumes it is under tracked in Europe.
perculator (on 21 May 2008)
the best game on 360
FaRmLaNd (on 14 May 2008)
Halo is one of the titles that really increases whenever another big game gets released (see GTA4 launch). This game will easily reach 9 million. IMO
dante (on 11 May 2008)
this game is under tracked in europe
Griffin (on 11 May 2008)
This game is great, and it still beat out GTA4 on the 360 for first week sales, thats amazing.
ToastyJaguar (on 08 May 2008)
still play this game online on a regular basis, pure greatness!
Oemenia (on 08 May 2008)
Had no staying power in EU, GTAIV will blitz it. SSBB and SMG are on the way to beat it, regardless, well done Halo 3
I LOVE GIGGS (on 07 May 2008)
9 m at the end of this year ?!
I expect more than 8.5m
so ... 9m is not hard

may be 10m if it come with the 360 in the holiday (bundle)
Everstar (on 05 May 2008)
9 out of 10 a great game
FaRmLaNd (on 29 April 2008)
Its great to see this game is on track to outsell halo 2.
squall747 (on 28 April 2008)
A good game and I cant see anyone giving this game a 1. A piece of gaming history whether you like it or not. And Halo is the same as the previous 2? 99 percent of franchises are more or less the same. From Halo to Devil May Cry to Metal Gear Solid heck the only major difference between Call of Duty 4 and the previous 3 is the timeline.
Strategyking92 (on 21 April 2008)
yes, but multiplayer is awesome.
PX54 (on 21 April 2008)
Totaly useless, waste of 7m dvd disks and certainly not worth the price tag. Just the same as the previous 2 games, no real advancements in any area. Some new features but it looks to have been made purely to finish off the story line. Not worth the money. If you want to play online you may aswell stick with Halo 1 or 2 only buy this game if you REALLY want to know how it ends.
prosugno360 (on 20 April 2008)

Halo 3 8 milion Europe + USA
2.9 milion Europe
5.1 milion USA

DMeisterJ (on 18 March 2008)
60,000th hit, FTW
FaRmLaNd (on 18 March 2008)
And just because it isn't as good as cod 4 that means it must deserve a 1? Thats ridiculous!
slipknot0129 (on 16 March 2008)
i gave it a 1, it just cant compete with cod4
RidersDX (on 15 March 2008)
I played this game. And it was decent. I gave it a 7. It gets repeatitive though. I got bored of it.
HALOOOOOOOO (on 14 March 2008)

Strategyking92 (on 05 March 2008)
are 2 in every 7 360's being sold with a copy of halo 3?
wareagle372 (on 22 February 2008)
This game is not a bad, it just was not match to it's hype (which was one of the highest in video game history). If this was a game that nobody really played or heard of, people would think alot more about this game. We were all just dissapointed it wasn't as good as the hype told us.

Strategyking92 (on 21 February 2008)
It's sony and nintendo fans that are lowering the game's score.

It's a good game, really, it takes about 1 1/2 months to get into good competition in multiplayer ranked games though.
deathbeast (on 18 February 2008)
Definitely the most overrated videogame yet released, I can understand why people give it 0/10 to lower its overall score. Personally I couldn't have been more disappointed with its mediocrity and predictable nature, as well as lack of innovation and creativity, after all we had heard from the hype and marketing. Shows we just listened to the fanatical halo fanboys too much, we won't make that mistake again.

And now, back to COD4.
polishforlife (on 17 February 2008)
I gave it an 8 too much the same but still good game. Camaign is easily an achiilies foot of this game, cortana level(you know what i am talking about) i gave it an 6 Multiplayer is great as ever but levelin up is just too easy 8(and has taste of the sameness only item thing is the main difference
and replay value 9 also replay and forge can make it into long game 10 but campaign short so it is a 9 (4player co-op is nice though).
deathbeast (on 17 February 2008)
It's not just Nintendo fanboys who are rating it lowly. I'm a 360 owner and bought Halo 3, and I gave this game a rating of 5/10. I was suckered by the hype and marketing into thinking this game would actually be good. It's the definition of mediocrity and many games in 2007 are far better, particularly COD4.

And the user scores on vgchartz are meaningless, fanboys infest this site more than any other.
11ht11 (on 16 February 2008)
wow this game is rated lower than the bee movie game lol, but why do people think its nintendo fans all the time, it could be sony fans too

okay game but not the best fps made.. in anyway.

the halo theme is epic but the game is the same as its brothers.

Imo get cod 4 over this.

i got both btw for haters.. cod 4 is just better





So you haven't played the da game at all?
And you haven't played cod at all and yet you'll get it?
stupid fanboy.
Retrasado (on 26 January 2008)
WTH??!!
this game has a 7.13 rating?
What is wrong with you people? I don't like the 360 that much, but lets face it, this IS a pretty good game. (I gave it a 10 to bring the score higher. It probably deserves 8.8 - 9.3)

Daddo Splat (on 24 January 2008)
this is a great game along side COD4 lets face it if your a shooter fan and realism is your game or mass 5.1 sound and HDTV 1080p graphics is what your jonesing for the PS3 and 360 are the way to go shooters on the Wii well if you tried them split screen 4 player MOH sucks the graphics are unbarable. Call me spoiled I love My 360 and PS3 the wii its fun to bowl!but its not a shooters console dont get me wrong I beat MP3 but the wiimotes aiming and all was a real problem you have to take your aim of screen to turn around then reaim at whats shooting you. could have been done better! More of an action game then a shooter!H3 is a great online experience!

The best Halo game.
I didnt play so much Halo 2 singelplayer (except co-op) and not so much MP online. But Halo 3 did get me into the halo phenomen, once for all. Its awesome! 10/10

10/10 in all depts, best next gen game by a 1,000 miles.. Er until Gears 2 that is...
muffdiver11 (on 26 December 2007)
This game is great. I'd have to say its the most fun 360 game, not necessarily the best, but most fun. I don't have 360 but i play it at 1 of my 2 friends houses who both have 360.

Not as good as Halo:CE but better than Halo 2. 10/10

You are 100% correct
segajon (on 22 December 2007)
^^^ i agree not everybody has to like halo but why so many hits to this page just to say they hate the game and lower the score when they have never played the game.
sorry to sony boys it is mostly just the cocky nintendo fanboys playing their wii's on standard def tv's that come and bash halo and other high profile games on the 360 and ps3.

If their is a good game on ps360 nintendo boys come and bash like its as bad as rape,murder, and global warming on this damn site
Kamahl (on 22 December 2007)
^^^ in case you haven't noticed, sony's games got bad scores in this site too... check the top 10, is full of nintendo games.

Anyway, don't start bullshit... not everyone has to like Halo, i just don't see what's so great about it, its just another FPS to me.
segajon (on 20 December 2007)
There is no way in hell a game will get 36k hits and a score of 7.33 if nintendo and sony fanboys dont feel jelous(didnt spell that right) that it isnt out on their respective console
TheZ (on 20 December 2007)
Fucking fanboys. 7.33? WTF?
kopboi (on 19 December 2007)
do you dudes think that whoever wanted halo 3 has now got it so the sales of this game will not go past halo 2

uhUAHUahUA
mx_remix91742 (on 17 December 2007)
Microsofts third installment of halo is average at best in comparison to its predicesors; new online features make this a must have for any XBOX360 owner.

Although the overated status of this game makes the game lose its all around credibilty due to fanboys and massive/"not-so-mature" online community.
quarashi (on 12 December 2007)
New maps out yay!!!!!!
eugene (on 11 December 2007)
Its sad that people that dont have a xbox 360 keep putting this game down.
tokilamockingbrd (on 07 December 2007)
Seems over 50% of the people who bought this game did so on day 1 in the US... It kind of makes me wonder how this game would do if it had to sell on its own merit, I mean at least 50% of the people who bought this game before anyone really new what it was like... oh well, it looks pretty sweet, someday when I get an x360 i will get this and COD4
Cheat1011 (on 05 December 2007)
This game should be around 6.5 million.
mrstickball (on 03 December 2007)
I wonder when ioi will update the European numbers. It's been near 1.6m for a very, very long time. Expecially with the fact H3 just sold 100k units in the past 2 weeks there.
MontanaHatchet (on 30 November 2007)
Halo 3 surpassed 30,000 hits and has become the most popular game on the site!

Congrats!
Cheat1011 (on 29 November 2007)
If the money factor was removed, you'd have a really laggy map.
lololol (on 29 November 2007)
in my opinion

Single player - 8/10 (too short)
Multiplayer - 10/10 (awesome maps)
Online - 10/10 (no lag (even though i have an awful connection))
Theatre - 8/10 (needs rewind and skip scene buttons)
Forge - 7/10 (..money factor should be removed)

..remember this is my opinion..

i thought this game was gonna be awful when i was a ninty fanboy... then i played it and now im an xbox fanboy :P
RSEagle (on 28 November 2007)
Yeah single player was marginally better than the second one but still fell short of my expectations, online is a blast though.
jptolife (on 28 November 2007)
This is a good game but the hype was too much. The multiplayer is a lot of fun and the single player is really short. there are games that are more fun out there though.
Parokki (on 28 November 2007)
The singleplayer mode alternates pretty evenly between unbeliveably epic, attrociously horrible, and meh. Co-op makes it about a million times more fun, especially with 3 or 4 players online. Me and a friend of mine started playing it at 17.00 and were finished by 02.30 even thought we took an hour or so of breaks, so it's not very long either.

What the game really is about is the kickass multiplayer. I've only played it on 4 player splitscreen, but even that was so much fun I can't imagine what it would be like online. Especially for the Yanks, who appear to be required by law to demand online multiplayer in every game they play. =P
Munkeh111 (on 26 November 2007)
Nearly half the 360 owners have this game, I think that is slighly ridiculous, is it really that good? (I have never played it but my friends tell me it is good)
Myahon (on 23 November 2007)
Every 360 owner who plays online should buy it. If you can co-op and multi it is worth any price, and even the single is fun but co-op is waaaay better.

Don't be hatin just cause it's awesome.

May not be the best game of all time but it's the best halo and worth ANYONE's pruchase.
MontanaHatchet (on 16 November 2007)
Argh, why does no one like Territories?!

Anyone who wants to play Slayer every match is only compensating!

PATRIOT7ME (on 27 October 2007)

fred (on 24 October 2007)
@ Onimusha12, well im not so sure about that,
If you think they were running out of things to do with Halo 3 remember that the only big PS3 (Successful) titles left for release(that I can think of anyway)are on at least version 4 and at worst something like 15 i.e FF....
And Nintendo Pokemon's etc what number are they on now?

Little has changed with the above titles but its all about brand name etc and like the titles above Halo has that to....Plus of course most people like Halo because its amazing never ending online game play......

I'm glad Bungie broke away from MS's absolute control to avoid making Halo 4, this was a series they were really running out of stuff to do with, even putting their best into things could only go downhill, I'm glad to see they have integrity.

i love halo 3, i would love call of duty more if i had an easy to see ranking system cause when i play it its just like theres no point to go all out in the games. personally, i liked bioshock better than gears and halo becuase fps arte funny in the beginning and end, but boring in the middle, and bioshock has tons of replay value and so many things to do it never gets boring

Halo 3 is decent. But like Halo 2, it adds nothing new to the FPS series. I give this game an 8/10. I think the reason this game gets so much crap is because of how overrated it is, some people just have to score it down really low.
wii is ultimate (on 19 October 2007)
halo 3 was on ok game. i personally liked the second better because of the levels. i dont quite understand why people think that the halo games are so great i personally would rather play call of duty 2. if xobx and xbox 360 didnt have any of the halo games then xbox and 360 would be a ps2 and a ps3 with worse graphics. but overall wii is the greatest console.

Gears of war is superior, no doubt about that. And Call of Duty 4 of course.

However, the more important factor is that this site is absolutely overran by fanboys. The ratings need to be disabled, since they mean next to nothing. Every game deserving of a 9 or 10 gets an 8 or 7 instead, thanks to the brainless fanboys from all systems who rate them 0.

Remove the useless fanboy reviews. Just put the averaged industry reviews there instead: they actually mean something.

I agree with this 100%, I sent a friend here so he could see how great Halo was selling and he was like, "it's got an average score of 7.6, it can't be that good." They should definitely just have the scores from critics because it means a ton more!

And as for Halo I'd have to say I absolutely despise first person shooters. I don't enjoy them at all. The only 4 I own are, Golden Eye 007, Halo, Halo 2, and Halo 3. It is my least favorite genre by far and yet halo is my favorite game of all time. The game is just absolutely incredible, and you don't have to be an FPS fan to like it.

Great game. Its got its problems but still a great game. 9/10

Wait till this game hits 20 or 30 bucks... 60 dollars for this game and a $300+ xbox is just not worth it.. I got serious buyers remorse after that purchase....But that all went away when i got Valves ORANGE BOX!!!. Now those 5 games are worth 360 buck!!!!:)
SergeantPwn (on 18 October 2007)
Halo 3 is okay, but not great. The maps are crap and the melee system is broken. I'm going back to Gears of War until Unreal Tournament III, Call of Duty 4, and Haze release (I only mentioned shooters, there's alot more games I'll be buying in November as well). While those games hold me over for awhile, new maps will have released for Halo 3 along with updates to fix gameplay. I rated it a 7 because it's just not what I expected.

Halo 3 sucks.
busboy33 (on 17 October 2007)
Is H3 the greatest crafted game ever? No, and that's from a firm 360 fanboy.
Is it the most consistent fun, day in and day out, that I've had on my 360? Yes, and I never played online with Halo2.
While hunting for Easter eggs, the co-op campaign, and Team Big Battles are loads of fun, the inclusion of Forge, Theater, Bungie.net, Using screenshots as my desktop wallpaper . . . all fantastic, and like the "only 2 weapons" standard, or the "rechargeing shields" standard, I fully expect games developed from here on out to adopt these new ideas in other games.
Theater especially -- great addition, and something I can't understand why nobody has included until now.
Lost tears of Kain (on 16 October 2007)
indeed i am montana, but i wont argue with lower games, deserving their score (Leo was yelling about HS getting so low almost fittng, and warhawk, which niether are their top games)

seriously why no one takes this site seriousy......
MontanaHatchet (on 16 October 2007)
Yeah, the lag is a bit annoying. Makes Shotty Snipers, well, you know what I was going to say.

But even lag cannot stop the almighty Brute Shot! Mwa ha ha!
Onimusha12 (on 16 October 2007)
I'm dissapointed by the online Xbox Live lag while playing. Otherwise a solid game. Not justified by the hype, but worth owning if you've got a 360.
grandmaster192 (on 11 October 2007)
I might pick this game this weekend. I would have got it sooner, but I didn't have a second controler at the time.

5 Million worldwide by the end of next week, mark it down my sons.
HALOOOOOOOO (on 10 October 2007)
Yes, the Nintendo fanboys can't bear to see their precious games be thwarted by any Halo game. Good to see Metroid Prime is lower than Halo 1 though, that's fitting. Actually, all Metroid games should be lower than Halo games (and yes I've played them) but that ain't the case. The only fair Ninty fanboy I know on here is Zucas.
MontanaHatchet (on 10 October 2007)
^The Leo-J of 360 games?
Lost tears of Kain (on 09 October 2007)
wow only a 7 for the love of #%#$# im sick of these fanboys on here lowering the score

this is absolute joke
Daddo Splat (on 09 October 2007)
nairu mahon you guys are ninty fans its the other guys giving it a 1 to lower it out of the top ten. thats what piss most peeps off the top gets cracked by anything other then a 20 yr old nintendo platformer Iam suprised banjo kazooie isnt number 1 good game but damn. thats all true gamers want I am a multi platformer love a good game not some bubblegum jump skip crap kiddie game res. evil 4 was the best nintendo game I played it also was on ps2 but looked better on gamecube. but like you said its all about opinion so game on and if you have played yourself give your review and rating a pole on this site said 60% they were not even going to play it so why are they even voting on a game they arent playing.
Myahon (on 07 October 2007)
Is it worth purchase YES! Is it the game of the year? no.
I give it an 8 or 9 out of 10. The co-op campaign is the most fun but the multi is about Perfect Dark Zero level of fun. (which is great btw) Campaign as usual is fun UNTIL you have to deal with the damn flood and machines.
Nairu (on 07 October 2007)
And because i cant edit my post, Halo 3 is an 8/10 game solo, 9/10 with multiplayer included. Thats my opinion on it.
Nairu (on 07 October 2007)
Hrm, i also find this site funny, its great to see people start off with sensible comments, suddenly changing to "Your a FANBOY, you know nothing". The game is good, no-one is contesting that, its obviously a good game so if anyone is saying it isnt please shut up. For all of you out there who say it is the best game of the year, please say 'so far' and please say in your opinion because no game can claim that for someone else. Basically it is good but its achievements are lowered due to a short campaign (yes i've played and beaten it in Legendary). Because its a Halo game, people are going to be defensive about any criticisms against it but for GODS sake, please understand that everyone has different preferences and that the game ISNT perfect. It does have flaws, most games do, please accept them and stop being abusive because of it.

END.
deathbeast (on 06 October 2007)
What a truly pathetic fanboy overrun site this is. Why do they count reviews from average internet losers? Nobody cares what any of you think. There is a reason game reviewers make the only reviews people care about, because you idiot fanboys bias every other review.
deathbeast (on 06 October 2007)
Timesplitters is, and always has been, a pathetic mediocre, below average shooter where the enemies are generic and seem to be constructed out of playdoh. Or perhaps that's just because their art department sucks so much ass.

Halo on the other hand, is a ton of fun online. If you like Half life and that soap opera bullshit, go play your 3000 dollar PC rig and have fun with it. We could care less.

Sure Gears of War and Call of Duty 4 are better in basically every way. But Halo is still far, far more polished and fun than the average shooter.

Play Rainbow Six vegas and tell me its better than Halo 3. No non retarded person could say that.
leo-j (on 06 October 2007)
OMG!!!

It was at 9.22 a couple of days ago.. DAM!!!

I gave it a 10/10 in deserves it. I hate this site.
Lost tears of Kain (on 05 October 2007)
seems the fanboys are swarming in to make sure nintendo still possesses all 10 highest ranked games
Daddo Splat (on 05 October 2007)
its funny how many people will rate this game a 1 and never even played it dont even own a 360. oh I played halo at a friends house and when he pwned me teabagged me I went home crying and gave it a 1 on this site and for spite gave metroid a 10 cause I own in single player on nood mode.
stop with my graphics are better then ps3 and 360. just play your games and rate them. this game has a decent campaign if you want difficulty play it on legendary by yourself. that will take sometime coop finding secrets xboxlive forge and theatre saving your best games online and sharing with your friends. it has plenty of options but maybe you prefer flailing your wiimote all hours of the night. I have all 3 nex gen consoles love them all xbox haredcore online amazing 1st person shooters wii family fun wii sports wii play matchgame sick zelda was a 10 just like halo 3 oh ya ps3 is a good blurayplayer till MGS4 hits ya I know heavenly sword lair rentals.
eddie182 (on 04 October 2007)
The milti-player is nothing revolutionary. It's fun LANing with lots of mates but i remember games like perfect dark multi being way more fun as it was such a big leap for its gen.

I think you'll find all the advertising and hype has brainwashed people into thinking its the best game ever when really, there are better games out there.

TankCommando (on 03 October 2007)
No one game can claim the title of "Best Game". Personally, I love the Halo series for the storyline. In this aspect I think it beats out many first person shooters. I know that I will be playing this game for a long time, mainly due to the huge online community. Sure most of them are screaming kids, but if you can look past that point, the multiplayer is the most balanced for any gaming console. They toned down the auto aim enough that skill is back in the equation. And it wont be long until we get some great maps and game types to download from bungie.net. Keep in mind that all of them will be player-made variants. I've also heard rumors that Bungie will be bringing back clans. This will just keep getting bigger.
The Easley (on 03 October 2007)
Yea i guess this game isnt that special or good. being as its sold 3.5+ million copies, people dont just buy a game because its advertised and if they due that ludacris, this game is one of the best FPS of all time, hands down. I have both a PS3 and the 360, and truthfully FPS suck on PS3 i hated Resistance, it was just so generic, fear looked like ass on my ps3 so i rented it for 360 looked and felt alot better, and all call of duties are ok, 4 will be amazing, but honestly halo 3 just did it for me, i played it on legendary and it was superb, the legendary ending is awesome too, and the multiplayer, yea i like halo 2's more but i said that same thing abouyt halo 1 when 2 came out so it will prolly grow on me but who knows, so to those of you who arnt giving this game credit, c'mon
Alexie Di Onie (on 03 October 2007)

fazz (on 03 October 2007)
Agree with ssj12. Aside from the superultramassive marketing campaing, nothing so special about this game.
Bond007mgm (on 03 October 2007)
Imagine this game with Wii controls wouldnt that be cool, too bad theres no search for custom matchups!
Kenkaku (on 03 October 2007)
If this game is SO GREAT, what's up with all of the excess advertisement? It was just barely borderline with Halo brand tampons.

Besides, being a huge first person shooter fan, I can honestly say that Halo is mediocre compared to most other shooters. If anything, games like TimeSplitters beat out Halo when it comes to overall campaign length, number of weapons, difficulty, unlockables, features, and even imagination. Even the multiplayer was better, as you spent more time shooting then walking around looking for something to shoot. Also, why haven't they fixed up the matchmaking yet so you can actually choose what maps you want to play?
Frasman (on 03 October 2007)
@ssj12-Agreed.

@Patriot7me - Sounds like every other FPS game I've played. CoD 2 & 3, Doom, Duke Nukem 3D, Resistance, Half Life, Halo...it's all the same: Save the planet/town/country from the alien/Nazi/cyborg. Wash, rinse and repeat.

I'm not a big Halo fan, but I'll give credit where credit is due.
ssj12 (on 02 October 2007)
... ill get unreal tournament 3 and half life 2 ep 2 and be very happy. Halo 3 = good but not the best.

@PATRIOT7ME

Besides Folding@home, when have games ever had a purpose except fun? And as for fun, Halo accomplishes that quite well.
PATRIOT7ME (on 02 October 2007)
Halo is a disgrace. It's all about shooting with no purpose.
Zucas (on 02 October 2007)
Exactly. The best way to describe halo is it's fun and a good game but there's better in both aspects.
MontanaHatchet (on 02 October 2007)
It's fun online but there are games I find a lot more fun.

Would be nice to get some official
figures for the Halo games.
Welfare (on 25 July 2014)
Does VGC count all versions of this
game? Looking back at old NPD data, USA
first year is severely under tracked.
NPD has it at 4.82 million in the first
year, VGC is 4.24 million. Unless VGC
put those missing sales in 2008, Halo 3
could already be at 12.5 million.
