Halo 5: Guardians was released one week ago and has already broken many sales records. The Xbox community is thriving even greater since the launch. Halo is one of the biggest reasons why Xbox has always been on top. Now the PS4 has a significant lead over Xbox, but that doesn’t mean much when it comes to a great following.
As a whole the Xbox community has always been more interactive because of the Halo series. The PS4 following is still great but falls short. The fantastic sales records broken by Halo 5: Guardians shows how strong Xbox as a community still is compared to any others.
I can still look back and remember the fond memories of playing Halo splitscreen and online multiplayer with my closest friends all day and night. I would forget what time of day it was and some people would skip school or work because they were sucked into the game. Those were some of the best moments in gaming for me personally.
Halo 5: Guardians may be breaking sales records but the sales of Xbox One consoles has spiked before and after the launch of the game. This goes to show how many people buy the console for one game series in particular. As for the Halo community, it grows every single day and gets better and better as time goes on. So when it comes to a following Xbox still beats out Playstation by a good amount.
If you ask someone what console they own today they will most likely say PS4. This might soon change thanks to Halo 5: Guardians and it’s great support. Many gamers play videogames to connect with their friends and a community as a whole. Halo ties this all together in a fantastic package you can’t find anywhere other than Xbox One. Yes the Playstation has games like Uncharted, Infamous, Ratchet and Clank, Killzone, and Resistance but none of them compare to the massive scale of Halo as a series. Major League Gaming is very popular and Halo makes up a large majority of that. If that doesn’t show how much of a following Xbox has then I don’t know what to say.
Despite the PS4’s lead over the Xbox One Halo 5: Guardians has brought the following back to what it has been in the recent years. Going all the way back to the roots of the original Xbox, Halo was the main driving force behind the console’s sales. Groundbreaking graphics, gameplay, storyline, and online community are the main reasons why the Xbox has always shown greater support for its followers. Now with Halo 5, it can return to it’s roots and triumph over the PS4.
