Halo 4 Soundtrack Sells 9000 Copies In First Week

Even before release Halo 4 is breaking records at will. The sci-fi shooter’s soundtrack has sold an astonishing 9,000 copies in its first week, breaking the sale records set by Guitar Hero III.

Martin O’Donnell was the name behind the previous Halo tracks. For the latest installment however, the developers took Neil Davidge on their team who has previously worked on Hollywood movies like Clash of the Titans, and I Am Legend.

His compositions for Halo 4 are proving to be amazing, as the album becomes the highest-charting game soundtrack ever by debuting at number 50 on the Billboard 200 list.

Previously, the record set was by Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock in 2007 when it managed to reach number 107.

Halo 4, however, could not surpass its predecessor Halo 2, which managed to sell slightly more copies during its second week, according to Billboard.

Halo 4 will release exclusively for the Xbox 360 on November 6 worldwide. The title already has gotten top notch reviews for all major game websites and is said to be an amazing entry in Microsoft’s legendary Halo series.
