Halo 3: Generates Revenues of 560M USD - 1.5 million US pre-orders
Posted by XanTium | September 24 15:36 EST | News Category: Xbox360
 
From gamesindustry.biz:


With less than 24 hours to go before the game's launch, Microsoft has reported that it has already sold more than 1.5 million copies of Halo 3 in the US.

Early retailer reports indicate that the disks in the limited edition have a tendency to come loose in the tin, making them susceptible to scratching. The full extent of the potential problem will not be known until the game is made available to the public.

From teamxbox.com:


In the eve of the Halo 3 launch, the L.A. Times has published an article today explaining that Halo 3 has the potential to generate revenues in excess of $500 million.

The game may sell as many as 10 million copies at an average retail price of $70 for a total of $700 million in sales, said Colin Sebastian, an analyst with Lazard Capital Markets. Of that, Microsoft will get about 80%, or $560 million.

I pre-oredered a limited edition, so I hope there aren't any problems. I have to say, compared to the Halo 2 limited edition case, the Halo 3 one feels, well, flimsy. When you open up the front and the back of the case, the doors don't feel secure at all, and when it closes, it's like a cookie tin. I'm not saying this because I don't like the Halo series either, I love it biggrin.gif . I just hope that I'm getting a fairly good quality product for $70.

records will be falling after they finally compute the numbers for the opening day sales...all they have to do is beat $151 million from Spider Man 3 to regain the most sales of any media product in history, which shouldn't be too hard at all...i cannot wait to take the campaign to completion...
