Halo 3 Smashes AU Sales Records

You have to give Microsoft and Bungie some credit. They rolled out the hype thick and fast with Halo 3; the end result clearly outweighing the initial expenditure. In short, Bungie is laughing all the way to the bank.

According to Microsoft PR, more than 50,000 copies of Halo 3 had been sold and Australian consumers spent more than AU$6 million in just 24 hours. That makes Halo 3's debut the biggest first-day digital entertainment release ever in Australia.

So we know it has the biggest first day record in both North America and Australia so far. Not too shabby.

Anyone who has ACTUALLY played Halo2 and now Halo 3 and thinks the graphics are not MUCH better in 3 is insane !! Plain and simple

I don't care if it runs at 680, 1080, 180 ... don't care ... game looks AWSOME !!

And for those who sh!t on the game single player game, the multiplayer is WOW

Instant replay movies of FULL battles where you can FULLY CONTROL the replay and even do full walthroughs as in pause and move freely to the point of seeing the dash of the Warthog ... WOW

If that is not enough ... ALL MAPS are fully customizable and give YOU full control on CHANGING THE MAP in ANY WAY YOU WANT.

They're busy at work right now fixing all the bugs that came with the game and apologizing to their hardcore fans about the disc read errors, lockups and even the Xbox 360 exclusive RROD.

Expect a firmware update in the coming days.

EDIT: Zing
