Over the years we've seen other FPS franchises come and go as they all have attempted to compete with Call of Duty. But with Destiny's release less then a month away I'm interested to see how well it sells. With that said, is Destiny capable of outselling Advanced Warfare? Let us know below.
And for those of you that are interest in learning more about Bungie's newest franchise then feel free to check out my Destiny: Beta Impressions video, as I cover some obvious and not so obvious things regarding Destiny. Link located below.

It's already broken records as the most pre-ordered game of all-time. It's new, exciting, and basically 3 games packed into one with a 10 year lifespan.
It will not only outsell Call of Duty, it will undoubtedly be the best selling game of all time.
Sure it could out sell COD:AW but that doesn't make it a better game. The reason I haven't ordered it yet is because its a new franchise and just like anything new its going to have some problems. Bungie is a great company that doesn't stray to far from what they know so that's a plus but Destiny does have a cartoonish look and feel to it which turned me off. I didn't really like the demo. Granted it was fun but it just didn't have what I was looking for. It felt clunky and confusing at times. AI was lack luster, it was to easy just to sneak up on enemies and the waves of enemies feel is just old. My most loved scifi shooter was Battlefield 2142 and I can see a lot of that in COD:AW. I'll probably get Destiny down the road sometime (when its on sale) but for now I'll stick with Call Of Duty.
I can see it happening but not by much. Xbox users haven't seen a good game in a long 8 months. My xbox one has collected 8 months of dust and it might be broken but I will tell you most people will buy both games. Such unique and different games.
Hard to say as while it is breaking pre-order records, the CEO of Activision issue a statement last week during its earnings call about how analysts should not count on pre-orders to determine to how well a game is selling.
As pre-ordering was the only way to try out the beta unless a friend gave you a code, I wonder after the beta if Activision is seeing a lot of cancellations for Destiny after folks tried it out.
