Halo 3 breaks records

Publish date:

Halo 3 has become the fastest-selling Xbox 360 game of all time – and the second-fastest selling game in UK history, behind GTA: San Andreas.

However, PS2 had been on sale for four years when San Andreas was released in 2004, and had sold 6.6 million consoles in the UK – meaning that just one in ten PS2 owners bought the game.

According to ChartTrack, Microsoft's UK installed based now stands at 1.4 million after less than two years on the market – meaning that one in three owners has already purchased a copy of Halo 3.
