As an XBox fan boy i was wondering what game you think will sell more copies on XBox 360 on release week between Halo Reach(around),Gears of War 3 and Call of Duty Black Ops.

Just some fun

I had the same prediction last year about ODST outselling MW2. Then MW2 blew Halo off the table.

I'll give Halo a chance when Master Chief comes back.  Until then COD/MW is HNIC.

I want to say it will be Halo, CoD, then Gears but the smart bet would be CoD over Halo

Though I'm not happy to admit it, Black Ops will most likely blow everything away.

I'm only interested in Black Ops to play the Campaign and do a little bit of multiplayer. Then I'm off of it, back to Starcraft 2 and Warcraft 3 (DOTA).

@z3phyrus I wouldn't get to excited for the Black Ops campaign. Standard faire hero-shooter story. If you're not that interested in the Multiplayer, where all the meats at (no pun intended), then you should probably just rent it.

@Semblance I just like playing FPS campaigns for fun and just to pass time. If the multiplayer doesn't do bullshit like MW2 did, I might play the game longer. If Gamestop has that deal again where if you sell the game 2 months after release you'll get $50 for it, I might buy it. Other than that, I'll borrow it from a friend.

Based on your question, I would have to say Black Ops, only because it's multiplatform. If you take out the variable of being multiplatform, I would still say Black Ops because the series has catered to more casual players over the last few years. It is basically the definition of pick up-and-play FPS gameplay, and no one wants to go out and blow $60+ on a game they're going to completely suck at. Personall though, I'm most excited about Gears of War 3. I love the gameplay, and the story has me quite intrigued. Halo: Reach looks awesome as well too, and I don't see how it can't hold me over until April 2011.

Halo Reach will outsell console versions of Black Ops.  Or at the very least 360.

moother funkerrrrrrrrrrrrrr, I just typed out this nice thing that took like 10 minutes and then I go to post it and bam.. error page reload and thats the 3 time to night on this site, now having said that I'm not really mad at you beer_baron cause I could only image the troubles you have with building your baby site, and I don't know that it was your site,could have been something with my computer. oh and I'm sure you have thought of it but are you going to install or however you do it, but put auto correction for spelling, like right click the red underline word and it gives you options for the right choice? anyway keep up the good work and it would be cool to see graphics or like a layout or something.

I reckon CoD will do better then halo.... Call of duty has always been a more popular game then Halo as far as i know... Halo is only a single platform aswhere CoD is multi... but who would know these days, afterall CoD has seemed to hav gone downhill a bit lately and halo (in my opinion) can only go up from where it is with me :P

I say black ops because the people that work at game stop said that they had over 2 million preorders or something like that.

Call of Duty: Black Ops. Relating to the post above, it is supposed to have more pre-orders than MW2 had, and that game had something like the most sales in the first week ever.

well it is obvious that black ops is going to sell the most because it is multiplatform, but if reach or gears of war 3 was multiplatform, then it would have a chance against black ops.

Im pretty sure its going to be Halo Reach. Looking at the top selling xbox games, Halo 3 is the leader. Yes, MW2 is a close second, but most people dont like treyarc games.

Obvious that BlackOps will win since it is a multiplatform and like Boss kowbel said it has alot like a pickup and play game.

Halo will  in my eyes still outsell on the xbox.

and since halo reach is to halo 3 like modern warfare 2 is to cod4

and mordern warfare sold incredebly well(because of the famous cod4)

i would say around 6.2 million copies are going to get saled within the first week

anyone wanne bet, just for fun?

 

Then gears since it is forbidden in certain countries(germany for example even it´s the only one i can think of) I´m still getting it though...

From what i read in the newspaper over here they asked people what will be the most sold game of 2010 1st place was star craft 2 and 2nd place was halo reach and black ops was behind that which i totally agree with.

I'm surprised no one has brought up Super Mario Galaxy 2, it's sold 4 mil so far and come christmas it's gonna murk everyone.

Look at what New Super Mario Bros Wii has done, 15.8 mil strong to date.
