So much is being made of population counts and the things that 343i needs to do to make Halo 4 a success.
As a person that bought Halo for primarily the single player campaign I have to say that the game is already a success.
I know, some chap is going to say that the campaign was mediocre etc… I have no choice but to respect the opinion.
However, 4 million copies have been sold and whenever the number is 400,000 or 40,000, the number of people playing online is small.
I think that it is only fair that we delineate the success of Halo into campaign and MP.
Those calling Halo 4 a failure because of low online population counts need to be more precise and fair, and call Halo 4’s MP a failure.
But to call the entire game a failure is simply false because the critics and the sales prove otherwise.
Halo 4 told a good story and expanded on the character. Reading the Forerunner trilogy furthers the positive experience.
It is money well spent for me.
EDIT: Just before someone claims that this should go to the population count thread, I want to say that I am focused more on the campaign end, rather than MP.
