Tokyo Game Show (TGS 2010): Halo Reach Makes $200 Million – One Day

By Updated on

We knew it was going to be good, but this good? Microsoft has just announced at the Tokyo Game Show that Halo Reach managed to bring in $200 million (USD) on day one alone, breaking all kinds of records in the process.

According to VG247, Halo Reach is now the biggest entertainment product of 2010, although $200m for one day is still not enough to take down Modern Warfare 2’s figure of $310m for one day sales in the UK and US combined.

If you break down the $200m figure per copy, then Microsoft managed to shift around 3.3-3.5 million copies of the game, depending on a ($50-60) price point for the game.

Will Halo Reach be able to compete with Modern Warfare 2 in the sales department though? We’ll have to wait at see – let us know your reaction to this.
