So when the guys and gals at MS released a demo version of the new Halo RTS I'm sure they were expecting a lot of downloads. I'm not sure, however, that they were quite expecting a record breaking 2million downloads by Xbox Live GOLD members in the first five days. (For you silver members, the demo should now be available too.)
The next question on my lips is whether or not the new RTS will beat Halo 3's record of the fastest selling video game of all time. Master Chief's third outing racked up over $170 million sales in the first 24 hours of release on the 360 system and over $300 million in the first week."
