Mark your calendars.
May 24, 2010
Get out your antiquated wall calendar and circle September 14. That's the date Halo: Reach will be available at your local retailer, unless you live in Japan in which case you'll have to wait until September 15. Suckers.
Bob McKenzie, senior vice president of merchandising at GameStop noted that, "Pre-orders for 'Halo: Reach' have been off the charts, with fans snapping up the limited and legendary editions since they were introduced just a month ago. Overall, it's a real testament to the passion of the 'Halo' fan base."
Meanwhile, Microsoft has revealed some numbers regarding the recently concluded Halo: Reach beta. More than 2.7 million people took part in the public multiplayer beta, logging over 13 million games for over 16 million hours of play time. That in just over two weeks.
