    I would say that Halo 3 is going to be at least slightly popular. :) 

    If this game is not a system seller this holiday season -I don't know what possibly could be.

    EDIT:
    Say! 1971 posts -that's my birth year.
    That must mean -I don't know what that must mean, but it must mean something.

    I will laugh if the game was to be pushed back for another year or it came out and got pulled, seeing that 1 mil already sold lol.

    I'm out on the Halo bandwagon. Make mine Mass Effect. But it's still nice to see a video game kicking so much ass.

    i bet there'll be a lot of the "Legendary Edition" on ebay the day of or day after.

    as for how much it sells, yeah, i think it'll sell not as much as Halo or Halo 2...from the looks of it, it lost its steam...but i do see it being a system seller.

    I'm one of those million, myself - I can't wait. I can see this easily outselling 2 right out of the gate.

    It's the fastest selling videogame preorder ever.
    It has reached one million units sold a month prior to its release.

    I am curious, how are those two factors an indicator that it has lost its steam?

    I dont think it has. Halo is as strong as it has ever been. And with the 360 being dropped in price, people are still going to be preordering it now that they bought their new less-expensive system, up until a week before release. That Million is still only temporary.

    well..it did sell 1 million but one of the version does come with a helmet.

    as for loosing it steam, what i meant was talk-wise.......
    When Halo was out, it was Halo this Halo that, all you hear is Halo...
    then Halo 2 came out, you hear Halo 2 this, Halo 2 that, but it was half as much times...
    now we got Halo 3, but i hear more about Gears of War and GTA IV than Halo 3...Magazines had more space used per month for Halo and Halo 2 than Halo 3.

    sales-wise, it'll do more than Halo and Halo 3...but it has to do with that it's Halo and it's the first one for the 360.


    Yeah, it'll sell million more...but right now it's not 1 million sold...it's 1 million Pre-ordered...that's two different things.

    I don't know about the numbers, but Omega is right about one thing. The talk has been a lot less, when compared to how much people spoke about the game back when 2 was coming. Hell, I wouldn't doubt if Lifetime even talked about it on TV.

    Okay -I can see OmegaScourge's point now.

    I have a feeling that once the game is out there will be a lot more talk about it though.
    I think there is not so much talk\speculation right now because of the beta.
    People already know what to expect.

    I'll keep my TV tuned into Lifetime. :thumb

    My Brother and I love FPS and enjoyed Halo 1 and 2, my Brother pre-ordered Halo 3 a while ago but for some reason we are not even excited or have a great desire to play it. The only place I know to talk about it just has people moaning, bitching and been typical ungrateful board members so I don't think thats helped.

    Its cool to know that game like this can have so many pre-orders behind it, overall I see it as a good thing.

    You guys think maybe it's reaching the point where people are getting it for the name, but as a whole, the excitement's not there anymore because it's Halo 2 with prettier graphics and a few new weapons?

    Halo is overrated, IMO.

    "Hey I beat single player mode for the 100th time, and online is the same thing over and over!"

    ...I really can't formulate any kind of cohesive response to... to... this. Whatever it is. Especially seeing el Sock Uno has such a boner for Guitar Hero.

    Not surprised. Had the chance to pay off my copy, but the game is still months away. Not all that interested in getting the Legendary edition. Just planning on getting just the game.
