Its funny cause that's like $50 million less than M$ spends marketing Halo. Hmm I wonder if they're gonna give out $1000 gift bags to all reviewers also?

Pachter always makes pretty big claims, though I'm hoping he is right about this one; considering Battlefield 3 is the game I am most looking forward to this year.
