    is that all?
    i was really expecting it to do higher then that!
    i mean gears 2 sold 2M units in 24 hours and thats on 1 single platform!
    this is one of the most anticipated titles of the year!
    not to mention its one of the VERY few titles that has a lowest review score of 8!
    i honestly cant remember the last game that had such a good track record, i mean even freaking portal 2 got a few 7s and lower.
