Halo 4 vs. Black Ops 2 sales within 24 hours

The dust has settled after a monumental launch for Microsoft’s brand new Halo game. Halo 4, developed by 343 Industries has now been on sale close to a week and we have an indication on how the game performed, with some included details on how the inevitable Halo 4 Vs Black Ops 2 sales battle will pan out.

We could have predicted Halo 4 was going to be big, but record breaking big? Halo 4 marks the return of Master Chief once again and it appears that the series is showing no sign of slowing down, despite the departure of famed developer Bungie. Microsoft has just announced that Halo 4 has managed to shift a massive $220 million in the first 24 hours on sale, with the game likely to go on to amass $300 in the first week of sales.

$220 million in the first 24 hours is already a day-one record for Microsoft’s Halo franchise. The big question that will be on many gamer’s minds as well as Microsoft, is whether Halo 4′s first day and first week sales will be able to come close or even topple that of Black Ops 2, which is expected to pull a fortune for Activision once again.

Seeing as Halo 4 hasn’t managed to beat the last two Call of Duty game sales in the first 24 hours, we doubt it will even come close to matching Black Ops 2. The first Black Ops game sold $360 million in the first 24 hours of its release to set a record for the biggest entertainment launch ever.

This figure was surpassed though by Modern Warfare 3 which managed a staggering $400 million in the first day, which as you can imagine has not been broken yet – will Black Ops 2 manage to top this figure or not?

Considering that Halo was meant to be ‘in decline’ after the departure of Bungie, we would say that $220 million in the first day is a great achievement for Microsoft. Many gamers are saying that Halo 4 is going to outmatch Black Ops 2 in sales, but on the evidence of the $220 million figure, we doubt it is going to happen.

How do you see the sales battle going between Halo 4 and Black Ops 2? Easy win for Activision’s latest offering, or has Halo 4 got what it takes to beat Activision in a gradual process?

Dheere Dheere Lyrics Har pal meriyaan yadaan
Yadaan vich ae tun
Dil di gal main dassa
Te dassa fir kinnu (x2)

Teri meri, meri teri ik jind'di
Ik jind'di what to do
Jhoomu main naachu main gaaun ke likhun
Tere liye main kya karun

Dheere dheere se meri zindagi mein aana
Dheere dheere se dil ko churana (churana..)
Tumse pyaar hume hai kitna jaane jaana
Tumse mil kar tumko hai batana

Sham wahi, kaam wahi
Tere bina o sanam

Tere bina o sanam (x2)

Teri meri, meri teri ik jind'di
Ik jind'di what to do?
Jhoomu main nachu main gaaun ke likhun
Tere liye main kya karun
