MS goads Sony over Halo sales

In a quite stark bit of pre-E3 willy-waving, Microsoft’s product director Aaron Greenberg has pointed out that total sales of Halo 3 aren’t simply better than those of Sony’s leading games – it beats the lot of them combined.

Speaking via Twitter, Greenberg stated:

Just in from research team (NPD): Halo 3 has outsold Resistance 1 + 2, Uncharted 1+2, Killzone 2 and God of War III COMBINED….wow”

Though the likes of Resistance: Fall of Man and Uncharted debuted when the PS3’s install base was very low, recent hits such as Killzone 2 and God of War III have performed strongly at retail – though not to the same extent of big hitters such as Halo, Grand Theft Auto and Call of Duty.
