Tristan’s Twisted World: Halo 4 vs Call of Duty: Black Ops 2

By Tristan Werbe in Opinion Pieces

Now this has been a classic match up for FPS some time, but the last time Halo outsold Call of Duty on Xbox was when Halo 3 came out. The past few years Call of Duty has enjoyed breaking sales records and making history. Call of Duty is on all platforms of gaming that means handhelds, computers, and consoles. So of course it sells tons and will probably sell more than every other game again with Black Ops II.

Halo is an Xbox 360 exclusive though and it seems Xbox fans are more pumped for Halo 4 than the same Call of Duty game redundantly being released. So, if you think about this – Call of Duty sells the most on 360 more than over half of its sales come on the 360. So Halo’s sales rely on the 360 and if it could sell more, at least on Xbox, it would mean that Halo has recaptured the multiplayer crown for the FPS. Look at some of the games that have failed against Call of Duty the past few years for the FPS title.

Homefront, which was not a very great game but had some bright spots, Battlefield 3, which was supposed to destroy Modern Warfare 3 in sales then the BF3 beta came out and so many pre orders were canceled since many gamers were displeased, Halo Reach a few years ago but that game sold more than the games that came out before and Bungie never talked about destroying COD – that was a game for the fans to see how the plot started and the fall of Reach.

In gameplay terms of COD, it’s basically the same thing year in and year out and has gotten really boring. Halo 4, from very little gameplay seen, looks like a fresh revised verison of the Halo series. I’m pleased with what im seeing out of 343 and there first game.

Now with E3 just a few weeks ahead we will be able to make more accurate assumptions on these games which will be apart of this 5 part post going up till November. So stayed tuned fellow readers.

  • I’m pretty damn excited for Halo 4. It’s the sequel I’ve been waiting over 4 years for. I’ve quit with the CoD franchise after MW 3.

    i dont even give a half a sh** about these games. i’m amazed people still care about them. but then again some people collect stamps so i guess i shouldnt underestimate the mundane-activity-threshold of americans… i keep saying it and i will say it again: respawn and bungie will DESTROY both of these garbage franchises.

    Bungie is coming out with a new game called Destiney which im very intrested in so far

  • The battlefield and medal of honor franchises are tons better than CoD. CoD is just repeating the same story over and over again. Halo on the other hand reinvents itself every time.
