We all knew that Halo: Reach would be popular months before the game was released. But what we didnt expect was the insane numbers that Bungie realeased for the first week of Halo: Reach's life. Bungie, on their website (bungie.net/News/content.aspx... ... &cid=28805), released some numbers on the first week showing how popular the game is - and the series is - for that matter. To check out some of the most appealing numbers, make the jump and feel free to comment!

--On Tuesday, 09/14/2010 at approximately 1:30 pm PST, just a few hours after launch, Halo: Reach’s online unique user count had already completely eclipsed Halo 3’s total tally for the entirety of the week (09/13 through 09/20).

--To account for the same number of online players found in Halo: Reach during that same window (just six days), we had to run the numbers for Halo 3 going all the way back to 8/6/2010, encompassing a full 45 days of Halo 3 play!
