Halo Reach Beating Call of Duty Black Ops: Chance is ‘Slim to None’

Just before the release of Halo Reach we posted an article asking you whether Halo Reach would outsell Call of Duty: Black Ops, a slight majority of our readers believed it would outsell Black Ops, however some analysts do not.

An analyst working for EEDAR says that the chances of the Xbox 360 exclusive Halo: Reach outselling all platform sales of Black Ops are “slim to none”.

One analyst believes that the Xbox 360 version of Black Ops alone will outsell Halo: Reach, however another analyst has contrasting beliefs.

Personally I feel that the Xbox 360 version will fly of the shelves quicker than Halo Reach did, it will be interesting to see if my prediction is correct.

If you check out the source link below you can see more details regarding analysts predictions, let us know whether you think the chances of Reach outselling Black Ops really are “slim to none”.

halo reach is a solid game with the armor and the ability to make your maps and custom game which call of duty lacks. but on the other hand call of duty has Nazi zombies which is extremely addicting. both are good games but if halo was for the same platforms it would be very close.

Bungie is a part of Microsoft. Microsoft is american and the Xbox is an american console. That's why it's only an Xbox exclusive. Bungie likes keeping it that way. And it sells pretty well for only being available to one game console. Halo isn't that unrealistic as you guys like to portray. It takes place in the future. Long into the future. It has creativity, and alot of it, while still keeping a grasp onto reality. Unlike Halo, most COD games take place in the past. Based off repetitive war sequences and nothing hardly changes except for the war you're… Read more »

halo hater dont say things like u never try it ur acting like some ass shit because have told u, i now they didnt sell more copies because some countries doesnt show this game in television and what country would do that for example Portugal, all the games they show on tv is like harry potter, Pes and fifa, this games r the same thing like pes and fifa, the only thing they change is the graphics and nothing else so watch halo reach on youtube and tell me something Ps: Black ops is great and its a game for… Read more »

halo reach is so much better than blck ops and sold more on 360 and was 30 million dollars away from outselling black ops altogether

Your all crazy, Halo Reach sold more than Black ops

Seeing that black ops was rated so low (read reviews) the frenzy of it will soon disappear, in about a few weeks halo reach will be back on top.

Black Ops will outsell Reach for the one simple fact that everyone else here has stated: Black Ops is multiplatform. Does that mean its a better game? Not by a long shot. I've played every single one of the Call Of Duty games, and after I've played through each of them, I've always went back to Halo. Reach has stayed in my XBOX since the day I bought it, and MW2 has sat on the shelf since i beat the single player and went back to Halo 3 for the multiplayer. Dont get me wrong, I thoroughly enjoyed MW2 when… Read more »

reach doesnt hav a chance in hell to beat black ops its not near as popular its only being sold to xbox 360 its not realistic and the biggest reason that it wont sell better is because ITS A TERRIBLE GAME and i havent even played it my friends tell me it sucks

black ops will outsell halo reach. people who continue to play MW2 are tired with all the cheap nonsense that was never fixed. treyarch are planning to fix alot of these problems and that would be reason enough for a purchase. halo reach feels unfinished, at least to alot of people that have played since halo CE. halo reach is very gimmicky with its armour abilities and dreadful spawns online. the worst to grace a halo game so far. both games are overhyped, but if treyarch deliver as promised then black ops will be a very solid online fps, i… Read more »

Im not a halo fan, i have modern warfare 2 too (and i think is great), but only see this: "Newsflash:As of the end of last week, when the game had been out only four days, already 31 million matchmaking games had taken place. On top of that, the total time played added up to 2,300 years and 78 billion credits had been earned. No word on how those numbers changed over the weekend, but we're guessing they've at least doubled since then, which is just downright scary. Kudos to Xbox Live for being able to handle all that without… Read more »

I think the 2 games are great and i have the xbox 360, i have halo: reach and i think is great and im going to buy Call of Duty: Black Ops because is going to be the best game of Treyarch (i prefer Infinity Ward, unfortunately they left the CoD game because of activision T_T )

P.D: I think this fight is stupid, because call of duty and halo: Reach are very different games, one is "science fiction" and the other "realistic" wars, you're an idiot if you don't know the difference. 😛

for all you idiots who want realizm in games, go join the fucking army. i love reach because of how unrealistic it is! i mean come on games are not ment to be fucking real, its what i hate about new age gamers, dont like fantasy, if you want realism go the fuck outside and go play sports and keep madden and cod off the game shelves! if i were to buy cod it would be to burn it!

The reason I own Halo: Reach is because it's an amazing package of single-player/multi-player components, lacks the gimmicks in other FPS shooters (the elephant in the room, Modern Warfare 2) and lastly, Bungie is a committed developer and will continue to support this game. Sadly, Black Ops is going to out-sell Halo: Reach because all the Jocks think gritty, brown, overmarketed shooters based off sensitive, realistic topics (nuclear weapons, middle-eastern conflict) are fun and that Halo is for little kids because it has a diverse colour palette, aliens and is based off pure fiction. I reckon Black Ops is going… Read more »

Black Ops will no doubt sell out faster than Reach, but next year players will forget about it when they bring out Black Ops 2 or MW3. Halo, however, has a string of fans who invest in the game and each chapter, whether they buy it now or later. How many CoD players will go out and buy MW1 if they haven't already got it? How many Halo players will have missed a game (excpet perhaps Wars)? As for Microsoft, each company needs a drawcard. Nintendo has Mario, Microsoft has Halo. It's good business. How many will have bought a… Read more »

Doesn't matter, because I'll still be playing Halo Reach after Black Ops is long and gone next year.

i agree with hunter, it would have to be on all 3 platforms to even come close, even then imo alot more elder people (35-45 years old) play COD. so it actually hittin all ages unlike halo i think more kids and young adults play then elder people. black ops just hit all ages not just one era.

Marcus

The only reason black ops will outsell reach is because off all the "chavs" and kids who play it. Call off duty has become a home too chav gamers (chav gaming) whilst reach has more real game players who arent looking to argue or give abuse 25 hours off the day, 8 days off the week.

If Halo Reach had a chance to outsell blackops it woulad have to be three times better that what it is and its going to have to b emade for all platforms not just one there dumb if they think that they are gonna get lots and lots of money off one platfrom come on micrsoft just make it for all platforms. Microsoft is just being dumb selling it on one…
