is halo better than call of duty
toamatt26

Con

Since my opponent is Pro, it is assumed that he would be arguing for the Halo series and against Call of Duty. With that said, I will be arguing that Call of Duty, which will be abbreviated as CoD, is superior to the Halo series. I accept the debate and will post my arguments next round.

As it is obvious, most of the time, the game that is superior in most ways has the most sales. The following diagram shows a list of the top selling games on any console of all time, ranking most of the CoD Games in the 30's. The Halo series games however, are far behind, having Halo 3 the top selling game of them. [1]

With that said, here is another graph showing the weekly sales of the Call of Duty games.[2]


.
My opponent has not stated how much money the Halo series made, so it can be assumed it has not made nearly as much money as any of the Call of Duty games.
.
Now the same graph will be shown for the Playstation 3, having nearly the same patterns. [4]

.
.
Once again, my opponent has not stated any evidence to show that the Halo series has greater sales.
.
.

"...Activision’s latest first-person shooter, Call of Duty: Ghosts, exceeded $1 billion on its first day." [4] All but one of the Halo series did not get nearly half the amount of 1 billion dollars, which also shows Call of Duty's superiority. "Last year's "Call of Duty: Black Ops 2" made more that $500 million in retail sales its first day on the market, eventually reaching the $1 billion milestone in 15 days — a day less than its immediate predecessor, "Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3."" [5] As the quote states Call of Duty had humungously more sales than the Halo series.
.
.
.
My opponent has shown no arguments in the Round 2 of this debate, so I will count that as a forfeit, and hope he puts serious arguments next round

you and your stupid facts
toamatt26

Con

It is clear that my opponent does not know much about debating, hence the fact that he did not post any arguments. I will stand my arguments until my opponent posts his. For now, the audience may watch this video of a call of duty player getting a 25 kill streak in Modern Warfare 2. Enjoy
