Holy Tweet: Halo 3 outsold every big PS3 exclusive…combined

by William Schwartz


Aaron Greenberg took the opportunity to gloat over NPD data today via his twitter account, which he does a fairly regular basis since Microsoft has been doing pretty well compared to the PlayStation 3.

According to Greenberg, “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.”

That’s actually pretty incredible when you think about the quality of some of the games in that list. Uncharted 2 was largely regarded as one of the greatest games of the generation thus far, and God of War III was also pretty incredible. It just goes to show that Halo is an incredibly popular series, and probably is at its peak with Halo 3.

The tweet was short and sweet so no actual figures were released, maybe Aaron will update with more info soon.  I’m curious to see a breakdown on how much Halo 3 outsold these PlayStation exclusives by and what the figures for each were.
