Halo 4 made its first week of sales count, taking the number one from last week’s incumbent Assassin’s Creed 3 to become the next in a long line of triple-A titles to take top spot in their debut week.
Interesting Halo 4 didn’t break the sales records of either Halo 3 or Halo: Reach however, in what you’d presume to be something of a disappointment for Microsoft given there are more Xbox 360 consoles in circulation now then there were in either 2007 or 2010 when those previous Halo games made an entrance.
Predictions for next week: Call of Duty: Black Ops 2.
