46 Million Halo Games Have Been Sold Since The First
Strange isn’t it? That Halo has been around for 11 years… really doesn’t feel like it’s been that long. Regardless, a bit of interesting news has come from Microsoft today stating that more than 46 million Halo games have been sold since 2001. The series has generated at least $3 billion in sales with $200 million coming from Halo: Reach in the first 24 hours!
That’s a lot of money and a considerable amount of time has been spent playing Halo titles. Microsoft included that “more than 5 billion hours of Halo gameplay have been logged by players while connected to Xbox Live.”
With Halo 4 right around the corner, November 6th to be exact, it would be safe to assume that sales and time spent playing Halo will increase tremendously. Halo 4 is still available for pre-order before it’s launch on November 6th.
