Wow, Halo 3 sold behind GTA IV on PS3. I had no idea. Thought Halo 3 was top.

Course they did. Surely that's less surprising though?

That's what successful multiplayer can do for a franchise. Congrats to Bungie.

I don't think the UK has a rabid an obsession with Halo as North Americans do. Halo 3: ODST seems to have been a resounding commmercial success. Congratulations to Microsoft and Bungie.

What it shows that its a game largely bought by the hardcore. With Modern Warfare 2 only about 5 weeks out, many would have reconsidered a possible Halo purchase in favour of a new sequel in MW2. Despite that ODST has sold a significant amount by any game's standards. Halo 3 is and will be a unique title in terms of sales.

Doubt MW2 was on many people's minds.

No surprise here...Halo 3 makes haters cry.

No bad for an "overpriced, overrated piece of DLC"
