343 Industries And Microsoft Bust Out 3.1 Million Copies Of Halo 4 In A Day

And I can’t disagree — playing Halo 4 is amazing. It turns out that 343 Industries has made a fantastic game, selling 3.1 million copies of Halo 4 in its first 24 hours, with 1.9 million of those sales coming from the U.S., according to VGChartz. The video game sales tracking website says Halo 4 managed to sell about 15% more copies than previous games in the franchise including Halo 3 and Halo: Reach. 

But do you want a really amazing fact? The Xbox 360 will turn seven on November 22nd — who’s to say this “aging console” doesn’t have some kick left in it?
