In other news...
Well Halo: Reach has been out for several days now, and since I have a PS3, I couldn't get it. But that's okay :)
Anyways, Microsoft said its new video game "Halo: Reach" had racked up $200 million in global sales on its launch day, building strong momentum for the November debut of the Xbox 360 maker's new gaming system.
"Halo: Reach," the latest in the blockbuster "Halo" series, is a key title for Microsoft heading into the holiday shopping season when it and archrivals Nintendo and Sony Corp clash with new products and look to reverse a recent sales slump in the $60 billion game industry.
Congratulations Microsoft! With impressive first-day sales, who knows how much they'll end up getting in a week or two? By the way, Halo 3 made $300 million in the first week, so $200 million in one day is pretty good.
