Bungie has said that the billionth Halo 3
match has now been played.
on the developer's site tells us, "At precisely 6:36pm PST (on Saturday - 2:36am on Sunday over here), in a three minute and nineteen second game of Infection on Foundry, four players participated in Halo 3
's one billionth match."
That's more matches than Halo 2
- a game released four and a half years ago - has managed to notch up. That game currently sits at 798 million total matches played.
Bungie dipped into its database and also gave the total amount of Halo 3
play spent in matchmaking: "Total Matchmaking Playtime: 2,023,153,340,764 seconds. Yes, that's two Trillion seconds, or 64,109 years of playtime."
