Halo: Reach Sells Well Over 3 Million Copies In First Month

It’s been four weeks since Halo: Reach was released, four short weeks, and like an unstoppable wave crashing onto land, the game has made its mark in North America as one of the most popular, best selling franchises in history.

The shooter sold 3.3 million copies in four weeks. Simple awesome.

In fact, it sold more than 3.3 million, because those numbers do not take into account the Halo: Reach Xbox 360 bundle. Just amazing the amount of people who bought it in such a short period of time.

Games that made it in the top ten includes:

Halo: Reach (Xbox 360)
Madden NFL 11 (360, PS3, PS2, Wii, PSP)
Dead Rising 2 (360, PS3, PC)
NHL 11 (360, PS3)
FIFA SOCCER 11 (360, PS3, PS2, PSP, NDS)
Kingdom Hearts: Birth By Sleep (PSP)
Mafia II (360, PS3, PC) E
Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions (PS3, 360, NDS, Wii)

    tis a brilliant thought, would be cool!
    my dog watches TV, no joke every time i go downstairs and turn the TV on he gets out of his house, drags his mat next to the window so he can watch.
    only thing missing is the soda and the popcorn!

    Nick you’re lying! LOL. You dog “drags his mat next to the window so he can watch”? I need to come AU for a dog. He’s a smart poppy.

    puppy yea, hes really funny.
    was watching funniest home videos the other day, they had a dog on there that was doing flips and loops through a obstacle course.
    you would be surprised what you could teach them with a little hard training.

    You know, that’s very, very true. Yours, however, is legend.

    surprised hes lasted this long, had him since i was in year 4!
    my grand mothers last dog lasted till he was 15, mines some how gone past that.
    hes funny though, he reminds me so much of me its not funny.
    all he does, if you leave him alone is eat and sleep.
    if hes not eating, hes sleeping and if hes not sleeping hes eating.
    sounds familiar.
