At one point earlier this year, it looked like Sony's biggest exclusive would square off against Microsoft's for a huge holiday showdown: Uncharted 4: A Thief's End vs. Halo 5 Guardians .
But we aren't getting the pleasure, now are we?
No, with Naughty Dog's highly anticipated title delayed until 2016, Master Chief can run mostly unopposed this year. Sure, he has to contend with the likes of Call of Duty: Black Ops III and Star Wars: Battlefront but both of those are on Xbox One; there's no fun face-off across platforms. Of course, had this happened, you know the fanboy wars would've kicked up a lot of dust, as the Uncharted 4 vs. Halo 5 debates would be plastered all over the Internet.
Hypothetically speaking, how do you think Nathan Drake would've fared when up against the Master Chief? If we're going strictly by review scores, Uncharted might've had the advantage, as Halo 5 currently holds a Metascore of 85 . Even the first Drake adventure scored better than that, and Uncharted 2 and Uncharted 3 were up in the 90s . Even so, would there be any chance that Uncharted 4 could actually outsell Halo 5 ? Probably not.
