The sequel to Halo 3 will be released tomorrow and I thought I would post some interesting stuff about this game because it has changed gaming tremendously.
There are some awesome things about this game, including the fact that there is a movie that Microsoft created for it (which cost 10 million) called Forward Unto Dawn.
First some stats:
*Preorders of Halo 4 are 1,179,659 as of last week.
*Sales of Halo games in general just totaled 46 million.
*The Halo 4 soundtrack debuted at number 50 in the top billboard charts last week, a first for a video game
*Additionally, the Limited Edition of the game has been sold out for months. Have you ever heard of a video game selling out?
Now for those that do not know, MLG (Major League Gaming) which is the professional video game league will be using Halo 4 in competition just as it has the other Halo games. And for those that do not know, MLG pros can make millions of $$$ a year.
