Halo Reach Hotter Than Call of Duty Black Ops: N4G Stats

Both Call of Duty Black Ops and Halo Reach are still yet to release, but gamers cannot wait to get their hands on these games, which are set to rule the holiday season in 2010. What game will be top in sales figures is yet to be seen, although hints are coming through already.

Our own polls seem pretty split on the Black Ops and Halo Reach debate, the campaign mode of Halo Reach looks pretty smart as does COD Black Ops, but Zombies could tip the scales for the popular Call of Duty game.

Most gamers know N4G, and love or hate it you get a glimpse of what’s hot or not. Thousands of gamers discuss, and decide what is the hottest gaming news. N4G ranks the news stories based on a temperature score, and this is decided by the popularity of each story.

Looking to the right on the n4g.com homepage, you can see a section called “Hottest Games” and in that list are both Halo Reach and COD Black Ops. While we are not sure how much this counts, we do know that the most discussed topics on Twitter can lead to accurate predictions. Could this be said for gaming and N4G?

Halo Reach is exclusive to the Xbox 360 and Black Ops will be on both the 360 and PS3, so the COD game looks to be the most sold game thanks to being open to both systems. Looking at the chart on N4G, Halo Reach is top with “63340” and Black ops third with “46950”.

How far do you think this chart goes to predicting interest in a game? Do you think Halo Reach will be the biggest seller in 2010?

Ok….

I respect both franchises. But I need to piont some things out,

1)The only reasons COD beats halo in sales is due to it being on different platforms. For the xbox alone Halo 2 and 3 have both sold more copies than Moder Warfare 2. Halo 3 and 2 both have 8 mil with MW2 at 7.4

2)Halo has many more features. Many gametypes, custimizable gametypes,firefight,forge, wich are both custimizable

That is a broad opinion for someone who obvisouly does not know the 10 million people who actively play these games on online….COD fans are COD fans and Halo fans are Halo fans. The games are very different and each have their unique style. Personally I bought Reach on launch day and played it a lot, but grew bored with it very quickly and actually traded it in to buy my kids a couple of games. I went back to MW2. Now Black Ops is out and I just played it for about 4 hours and although it has a… Read more »

Let's just put an end to this. Both are great series, REACH is an amazing game and Black Ops looks great too. The only thing we're looking at here is that are there more halo fans out there or COD fans. I'm a fan of HALO and the MW series (other cod games were boring), but all I wonder is that will Black Ops be like MW2 or like the other COD games. If it's the latter, Halo Reach sells more. If not, Black Ops will sell more on the other systems, not 360. *Note: Most 360 fans prefer Halo… Read more »

Im a COD fan, I have COD 1 to 6, cant wait to COD7, i have Halo odst and Halo 3 too. but COD still the best. i will challenge any halo fan and beat them in there own game but can u play COD. Cod more realistic, Halo so futuristic

Black ops will definite sell out Halo Reach without an trying.

Come on, we all know both will rock, so whats the point. If they both get above 8 in rating*which we all know they will) there will be millions buying. Can't games just coexist together nowadays? Games released two months apart are barely at competition

The two games aren't very comparable outside of camera perspective. And Halo does make more sense for something like MLG. I had lots of fun with MW2 earlier in the year, but it doesn't keep bringing me back like Halo does. The sad part is people don't remember Quake vs DN3D, Quake II vs Jedi Knight, or Quake III vs. UT, or ID vs. The World the the end of the 90's. There's nothing new going on here… I'm only gonna talk to people who remember the Game Gear from now on. There are many different flavours for all gamers… Read more »

I would say the only reason for this is because Halo Reach comes out tomorrow at midnight whereas Black Ops isn't out for a whilst. Personally I won't be buying black ops as I didn't like Cod3 or Cod5.
