    I beg to differ. Everyone i know knows both Halo and SSB. You can't say most sales will come from the "Fan boy" base. I would say a large percentage of sales would come from kids, due to parents. A parent sees 2 games, one with aliens, blood, gore, killing, (halo) and sees nintendo characters fighting each other like Mario and Link (SSB), a parent would most likely choose SSB for their kids. And EVERYONE knows what super smash bros. is. My girlfriend's first game was SSB on the N64 because that was the only game out there that appealed to her. Her second was mario64 lol. SSB is no small matter. There are smash tourneys everywhere and just friends playing together. The GC is small, inexpensive, and offers 4 players. Bringing a PS2 only allows 2 players, an xbox and ps3 is just too big compared to GC, the 360 though is good but it is fragile and not as rugged as a GC (I know this from experience from both my 360 and gc), a Wii is also perfect except you have to bring a wiimote :/

    Sales wise, yes. Halo 3 is going to take away from CoD4 and not everyone knows what Crysis is :/
    Graphics wise: Halo 3 and CoD4 are going going to cry against dx10.

    oh and thats a weird number for halo 2 sales...2-9?? its 6.5.
    According to VGchartz.com Wii is beating by .6 mil atm. But i wouldn't fully trust them. The Wii and the 360 sales are neck to neck right now.

    Same with me, I'm a hardcore PC gamer but my brother is a console gamer. He wanted a 360 and PS3 but I wanted a Wii, now we have all three (he paid for his and i paid for mine but felt bad he had to pay so much so i helped out) I basically bought the Wii for Galaxy and SSB. Other games are fun extras.

    Halo 3 will sell more for sure but that is just because people today don't know waht a quality game is. SSBB is actually an original game unlike Halo 3 which is just another FPS that got popular beacause of graphics which shouldn't matter so much no matter what anyone says.

    They are BOTH original games, SSB for it's style of gameplay, combined with it's emphasis on nostalgia as well as it's unique % style damage system. Halo is unique in that it strikes a very delectable balance between narrative, action, game play and design. Granted, there are a vast number of FPS, and many of them are sci-fi based, but there are only a few who do it as well as Halo. And when it comes to SSB there are numerous fighting games as well, but which of these games captures the spirit and fast-paced action of SSB?

    It's a tough call... Halo 3 does have a massive fan base, but so does SSB... It's going to be very close. In the long term, I say Brawl will win, just cause more Wii's will be sold. Brawl has a higher limit than xbox360, having sold more consoles.

    Go ahead and find me a game that is similar to H3 in all of its aspects. What people don't seem to understand is that without the Halo trilogy xbox wouldn't have been as popular as it is today. Also anyone could easily say that SSBB is just another fighting game no different from Dead or Alive etc. Finally Halo became popular due to its campaign mode along with the online capability. Sure graphics are a main factor but it isn't the only reason behind the high amount of sales.

    Actually there were a large number of Halo fanboys whining about how the graphics of H3 aren't as good as they wanted them to be (which shows just how shallow some people can be). so you're right, graphics aren't the main draw.

    Yeah, I think SSBB definitely is all over Halo considering how origional it is. Hey, let's put some aliens in a game and shoot them. That's how origional Halo is. SSBB has so many different features that's it's just that hard to beat. Everyone is so into Halo, that they don't even realize that it's not even that good of a game.
