The wiki says this sold over 15 million copies
If so, this is some SERIOUS undertracking

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.

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.

@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.

According to other articles back in 2008 and the timeline of sales here...Halo 3 is under-tracked by at least two million.

@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.

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.

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?

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/

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!

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.
