(Best Syndication) In the US alone, sales of “Halo 3” totaled $170 million. The one day sales of the new Microsoft's Xbox 360 space adventure game were more than double the total gross receipts of the top ten movies over the weekend. The top ten films grossed only $77 million, and that includes Friday’s receipts.

Even though games cost much more than movie tickets, their sales are quite impressive. Video games can cost $60 while movie tickets cost around $10. Microsoft says that 5 million copies of “Halo 3” were sold before the game ever hit the store shelves. According to the company, “Halo 3” sales surpassed the previous record-setting pre-sales of “Halo 2.”

Halo 2 was a huge hit when release in 2004 with gross sales of $125 million in the first 24 hours.

This is the final game in the science fiction action game. "Halo Wars" will be coming out in 2008 and will be a spin off from the Halo series. So while we see an end, there will be a new game on the horizon soon.

Halo 3 even has got licensing gigs with Mountain Dew soda, comic books, novels, and also action figures. We more than likely will see a feature film soon, I would suspect.
