Halo Reach $200m Day One Compared to Halo 3
According to Microsoft, Halo: Reach has "racked up $200 million in global sales on its launch day". As a comparison, Halo 3 did $170m on day one in the USA.

Phil Spencer, vice president of Microsoft Game Studios, pointed out to Reuters that "the $200 million figure made Reach the biggest launch of any game or movie this year."

Reuters shot back stating, "Halo 3 garnered more than $300 million globally in its first week. First-day global sales for Halo 3 were not available."

All the Reach figures make Spencer bullish of course, "What Halo: Reach numbers tell me is gamers are there. They are willing to buy the great experiences when they come out. In fact, that we are exceeding Halo 3 numbers out of the gate tells me that the industry is in a healthy state."

How many more 360s were sold between Halo 3 and Reach? I'd expect the figures to go up just on a larger install base alone.

What would be interesting is what percentage on 360 owners bought reach as opposed to the percent that bought Halo3.
