The newest game for Xbox 360, Halo: Reach, has sold over $200 million worth of copies in just its opening day, according to Microsoft! It’s great for Microsoft, but while it may seem like a ridiculous amount of money, you have to take into account the fact that each game costs $60, or if you buy the premium version it can run you nearer to $140, so while that is still a LOT of games sold, it’s not like they sold 200 million units. Though how fucking sweet would that be, if each Xbox game only cost one dollar each? Wishful thinking, yes, but some of us are poor, dammit!
Thought that doesn’t seem to be stopping people from rushing to their local Gamestop or whatever gaming stores you have near where you live and plunking down the cash for a shiny new copy. Or perhaps it’s just adding to all that credit card debt we seem to be bogged down in these days. Either way, WORTH IT!
For those of you not in the know, Halo: Reach is an Xbox 360 game developed by Bungie and produced by Microsoft. It was released in Europe, North America and Australia on 9/14/2010.
