Despite being out for a few days at the end of the month, 343 Industries’ Halo 5: Guardians topped software sales in the United States according to the NPD’s report for October 2015. This isn’t counting digital sales as usual.

Interestingly software sales were at $337.7 million compared to October 2014 which were at $349.9, indicating a 3 percent decline. NPD analyst Liam Callahan said this indicated that “hardware as console sales were offset by a 42 percent decline in portable sales. While console sales were up a modest 1 percent, 8th generation consoles had a strong month with 62 percent growth over October 2014 while 7th generation console sales dropped by 63 percent–higher than the year-to-date decrease in sales of 51 percent.

“Another cause for the decrease in October new physical sales was the 4 percent decrease in dollar sales for new launches. New launch weakness, coupled with a 5 percent drop in the performance of Q3 launches, led to the overall category decline of 3 percent.”

Other new titles included NBA 2K16 (2nd place), Assassin’s Creed Syndicate (3rd place), WWE 2K16 (5th place), Yoshi’s Wooly World (8th place), Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection (9th place) and Rock Band 4 (10th place).

    @gamingbolt you fail to mention that the Xbox also outsold the ps4 for the mouth of October. Y’all are truly sonyfangirls

      @gamingbolt you fail to mention that the PS4 also outsold the Xbox One globally for the month of October despite the launch of Microsoft’s biggest exclusive IP. Y’all are truly microsoftfangirls

    • Terminator

      Why would they? This is NPD in the USA only lol failed again TrollBotMK1.

    • XbotMK1

      Because NPD only counts the U.S when global sales matter to these companies more lol failled again Terminater.

      Keep trying to damage control your plastic box and your fellow Microsoft drones. Sales don’t matter when PS4 wins NPD but when Xbox One wins you come out of hiding to defend your fellow Microsoft c0cksmokers and label Halo as a “system seller”. Then I destroy you with facts and you start screaming like a child.

      Just like all Microsoft fanboys do. Keep me entertained.

    • Terminator

      “Because NPD only counts US” DUH! This is what the article is about, man you are in a roll of what a complete fail troll you are lol
      lol must have hit a nerve. Those salty tears never fail to come from you. Destroy me with facts? Which facts are those?

    • Terminator

      You and Mr. Xrat are really close…even getting the same upvotes by the same people at the same time and with the same sequence.
      Man suck accounts exposed.

    • XbotMK1

      You shouldn’t accuse Mr. Xrat of anything when you do the same thing you’re accusing him/her of you fraud.

    • Terminator

      Oh I should and I will, because it proves what a fraud you are, what a sad little life you must have to upvote yourself so you feel accepted 🙂
      lol you are accusing me of the thing that I have been accusing you, that’s a fact, for so long? Man desperate much.

    • Mr Xrat

      Amusing coming from the Xdrone shilling for the dead Xbone in every thread he can find. Stay mad. 🙂

    • Terminator

      You forgot to change accounts. Stay stup*d PS Drone 🙂

    • XbotMK1

      You’re such a fail, but at least you’re funny.

    • Terminator

      If I’m a fail you must be a sh*t. Lol

    • Psionicinversion

      Which sold more copies and hardware than any Sony exclusive to date boo hoo

    • XbotMK1

      False. Spinning Halo sales by bundling it with hardware is a beyond pathetic attempt at fudging numbers. That is like if Sony were to say The Last of Us sold more copies and hardware than any Microsoft exclusive thanks to The Last of Us bundle.

      I’m still wondering why Microsoft hasn’t given Halo 5 sales? We all know Microsoft loves to boast when they win NPD. You would think they would provide Halo 5 numbers since Phil Spencer even stated, “Without Halo Xbox wouldn’t exist” which we all know is a total PR lie because we all know why Microsoft made Xbox. To keep developers on Direct X so Microsoft can monopolize with their trash software.

      Not sure why you stated boohoo when it looks like you’re crying. You guys make this fun and easy.

His aunts neighbor has done this for only 10 months and by now repaid the loan on their home and bought a new Car .This is what they are donig …


    • Psionicinversion

      Looks like someone is jealous. I’m talking on an exclusive basis for example driveclub, infamous etc it would of blown them away

    • Mr Xrat

      Not a single fact to back that up. 🙂

    • Psionicinversion

      30 million ps4 owners and ps4 exclusive still struggle to sell more than 2 million. In fact its a celebration if it does because there pathetic

      Halo 5 cleared more than 2 mill no problem

    • Mr Xrat

      Bloodborne, Drive Club, Killzone and probably Infamous will have cleared 2 million by now. Meanwhile MS continues to be as cagey as ever. Sorry, shill. 🙂

    • Psionicinversion

      Bloodborne hasn’t. Drive club has which took them 8 months to clear with a massive install base which is pretty pathetic, killzone hasn’t because its crap and people will just buy it used if they want it same with infamous buy it used from ebay or something. They’ll be dirt cheap

      This is where you console idiots love your legal piracy, buy it used don’t pay the devs but its legal right so your doing nothing wrong!!!

    • Mr Xrat

      LOL Bloodborne cleared 2 million months ago. I can safely ignore the rest of your post after that. 🙂

    • Psionicinversion

      No it hasn’t last I heard it sold bit over 1 million. Prove it our do one!!

    • Counterproductive

      Bloodborne cleared 1 million copies in less than 2 weeks.

      Pretty sure it may have sold a few copies since then.
