A Million Halos

A Million HalosJust a year ago on March 23, 2002, according to a NPDFunworld market report, the official tally of copies of Halo: Combat Evolved purchased by consumers reached 1,008,992! Dave Candland reported this on April 2, 2002, and Microsoft issued the press release on April 8, 2002.

According to the latest guesstimate by Matt Soell, the worldwide figure should be well over three million. Considering that Minotaur: The Labyrinths of Crete only sold 2,500 copies in 1992, Bungie is obviously doing something right.

Keep banging the rocks together, guys.

A Trillion Halos

By 2010 every person on earth will own a copy of Halo!
