Le million pour Halo

Sonny par Sonny,  email
La X-Box a beau avoir du mal à se vendre en Europe et au Japon, il faut bien avouer qu'elle a un petit succès aux Etats-Unis. Du coup, les bons jeux présents sur la console en profitent pour se vendre à la chaine. C'est le cas d'Halo : Combat Evolved, qui vient de passer la barre du million d'exemplaires vendus. D'après Microsoft, qui adore se la jouer un peu, cela représente à peu près 6 jeux achetés par minute depuis le lancement de la console le 15 novembre dernier.

Pour les pourcentages foireux destinés à nous faire croire que la console se vend bien mieux que la PS2, courrez lire le communiqué de presse juste après la lien "Lire la suite".

REDMOND, Wash. — April 8, 2002 — Hailed widely as "video game of the year" and recipient of multiple industry awards for excellence, "Halo : Combat Evolved" has earned the distinguished honor of being the fastest million-unit seller ever for any next-generation console. According to NPDFunworldSM, the definitive source for toy and video games industry sales data, "Halo: Combat Evolved" recently crossed the magical 1 million mark in sales in the United States and Canada. Statistically, this means that more than six copies of "Halo: Combat Evolved" have been sold every minute of every day since its launch on Nov. 15, 2001.

"Halo: Combat Evolved" also has played a major role in helping the Xbox video game system from Microsoft Corp. set additional key sales records in the United States in just four months following its launch. The following milestones put Xbox on pace for long-term, worldwide success:

  • With nearly four games sold for every system purchased, Xbox has a higher attach rate than any next-generation console. Data shows that in the four-month period following the launch of Xbox, owners purchased 1.2 more games with their Xbox system than PlayStation 2 owners did, helping Xbox achieve 82 percent more software sales than PlayStation 2.

  • In just four months, Xbox has already catapulted to the No. 2 position among current game console sales.

  • Since its launch, Xbox has outperformed PlayStation 2 sales by 25 percent when comparing system sales during the first four months of each on the market.

    "The demand for "Halo: Combat Evolved" has been incredible from the very beginning," said Pete Roithmayr, vice president of Merchandising at Electronics Boutique. "It"s reason alone to own an Xbox. Heck, it"s the reason to play video games. "Halo: Combat Evolved" is that good."

    "We are thrilled that "Halo: Combat Evolved" has won over Xbox gamers, with sales hitting 1 million units at an amazing pace," said Ed Fries, vice president of Xbox Game Content at Microsoft. "There"s nothing like it anywhere else. It's only on Xbox. If you haven"t played "Halo: Combat Evolved," you"re missing out on the best video game experience available."
