While Microsoft is shooting for a cool $155 Million first day haul for its upcoming monster hit Halo 3, Lazard Capital Markets Colin Sebastian thinks otherwise. He believes Microsofts estimate is "conservative" and that Halo 3 has the potential to easily pass $200 Million "within hours" on the first day of sales. Whether or not that happens of course we wont know until September 25th.
Needless to say, after Halo 2s $125 Million launch, expectations are running high for Halo 3 and Microsoft expects the game to push a lot of Xbox 360s out the door. Just in time for the holiday season naturally. With Xbox 360 games by default at $60 US price wise, $200 Million in first day sales doesnt seem so far fetched actually. Not to mention those who will wind up buying the Legendary edition and Limited editions.
I know I want that neato Spartan helmet!
