Halo 2 Surpasses 1.5 Million Pre-Orders

The release of Halo 2 is just weeks away, and the Xbox exclusive first-person shooter has passed the 1.5 million mark in pre-orders for the United States--and is poised to generate more revenue in 24 hours than the day one sales of any full feature movie in entertainment history.

The first copy of Halo 2 will be distributed in a Midnight Madness at the Toys "R" Us in Times Square, New York on November 9, 12am. In addition, more than 6,500 U.S. retailers including Gamestop, EB Games, Best Buy, Gamecrazy, Game Rush, Circuit City, Kmart Super Center stores and FYE will open their doors at 12:01 a.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 9.
