With a release date of September the 25th Halo 3 has smashed all pre-order records with over one million pre-orders having been made in America alone.
According to Microsoft, Halo 3 has broken all previous records and may even be sold out of the Legendary edition before the game is actually launched. With big brand companies such as Mountain Dew and 7-Eleven helping advertising for the game it is unsurprising that the game has been doing so well. Even so most stores are amazed at the rate the game is selling despite the fact that it is not out for another month.
Though Britain is probably not going to receive its own limited edition Halo branded Mountain Dew it is expected that the game will also do big business for Microsoft. The special edition Halo 3 Xbox 360 should be out soon in the U.S. as well, and judging by these trends it could sell out almost as quickly as the Wii did. Until then, have a look at the hi-res images below.
