'Halo 3' Sells over $300 Million


Posted October 4, 2007 - By Stephen Johnson

Microsoft today announced that their super-blockbuster shooter Halo 3 has made over $300 million in its first week of release. With that kind of money, you could buy like 15 hamburgers!

Additionally, Microsoft reports sales of Xbox 360s have doubled since the game was released last Tuesday.

“‘Halo’ is truly a cultural phenomenon, and the launch of ‘Halo 3’ is an important milestone for Xbox 360 and for video games as entertainment and as an art form,” said Bill Gates, chairman of Microsoft, as he swam about in a pool filled with liquid gold. “‘Halo 3’ embodies our vision for the future of entertainment, where some of the world’s greatest creative minds will deliver a new generation of interactive storytelling.”

"Now get out of here before I have you murdered, peasant," he did not add.

In order to provide "equal time" to Halo haters, please enjoy this video where Zero Punctuation of The Escapist thoroughly eviscerates Halo 3. We don't agree with all his points, but damn is he funny.
