It was a given, CoD titles usually out do each other since people want to go play with their friends. Kinda hard to compare such a big title to another title which is only released on one console though.

Not really a huge surprise really. The CoD games are always a big seller every year.

Yeah *bleep* people for spending their own money on games they find entertaining. Everyone should be like the minority of bitter dorks who whine 24/7 yet still buy it/talk about it in news articles anyway...

Yeah! I spend all my money on indie games and new IP's! Anyone who still shells out money for a triple a title from a big name studio are fools.*Sniffs own fart*

Really? Double Halo 4? BO2 released on 4 consoles whil Halo4 released on 1. What was the sales on 360 only?

If you divided the sales money for CoD: BO2 into four[Wii/PS3/Xbox/PC] sections, each platform would have sold 125M a piece, which means Halo won in the Xbox section[220M] and probably will win in the PC section when/if that gets released too.

But you can't compare COD's sales to Halo sales because Halo is exclusively sold on Xbox[Microsoft] while COD can sell on Xbox plus three other platforms...

Black Ops 2 didn't release on Wii, first of all. Secondly, the game DESTROYED Halo 4...it made well more than double the money Halo did, on three platforms. Last I checked, making over 200 mil on three platforms (it actually made over 600 mil, hence my math) is much more impressive than Halo doing the sales it did on just one console...

Bo2 released on WiiU. And that would mean H4 DESTROYED BO2 on xbox.

These are two just awful pieces of logic:
1. the Wii-U was only released in the US (ONLY) 2 days ago, so that doesn't work for LAUNCH DAY sales of Black Ops 2 does it?

2. You can't take total sales and divide it by 3 (or 4 as you've tried to pass it off) and just say that is average per console. PC COD sales is a fraction of Xbox/PS3 sales because COD on the PC is nowhere near console size. Just look at sales of previous CODs for proof

So if you really insist on your incredibly pointless idea of taking a 'mean' sales, subtract maybe 10% of sales from the total (to allow for PC gaming) and then divide that number by 2 (1 for PS3, 1 fox Xbox, even though Xbox probably sold more)
I'll let you do the Maths (but it is greater than than Halo sales if you can't work it out)

btw I don't really care, just couldn't let those two terrible points go

Only sensible thing you said

^ Thank you.

I was well aware it released on Wii U, but as stated above, that wasn't at launch. Good try, though.
