After all these years, and growing up with Windows 3.1, I have seen an entire evolution of computers and software. Touch screens and large resolutions were a pipe dream just 15 years ago. Now it's the norm. Going from a Packard Bell (yes, before HP) that couldn't run 3D Ultra Mini...

Can You Predict Sales By Halo 4's Release Date?

You might not care about release dates, but it's interesting know that Halo 4 marks a return for the series to a later release date. It's true that Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary released in November last year, but it's easy to write that entry off due to it's weak sales figures when stacked against the rest of the mailine series.

Halo: Combat Evolved was originally released alongside the Xbox on November 15th, 2001. Sitting next to Microsoft's new console helps promote the title to over 6 million units moved. Halo 2 followed up in November, 2004 with 8 million moved through retail chains.

With a huge install base and an equally long development cycle, Halo 3 launched in September of 2007 to help push Xbox 360 units to consumers. Halo: Reach also followed with a September release in 2010. Unfortunately, Halo 3 continues to dominate the series in sales figures, selling through 11 million units, leaving Reach in second place with 9 million.

Perhaps gamers came to know that they could wait a little longer and pick up Call of Duty in November, instead of blowing the last of their Summer cash on Halo in September. Maybe Microsoft is hoping to grab more of the cash Activision has come to reap every year in the second week of November. We'll be sure to bring you more coverage throughout tonight's midnight launch of Halo 4.
