Halo 3: ODST does pretty well at retail

Prior to the release of Halo 3: ODST there were quite a few media outlets claiming that the game was simply overpriced DLC and that it was an insult to our mentality that Microsoft thought they could sell it as a full price game.

Well fast forward to now and the fact that Halo 3: ODST has become the third fastest selling game on the Xbox 360 and those self same media outlets are looking a little foolish.

The reviews are in and the game is good (not great) and it has also managed to shift over 2 million units in it’s first week.

I personally haven’t seen much of a marketing blast for Halo 3: ODST and as such I am expecting the sales to continue to sky rocket over the coming months.

While the gameplay enjoys a love/hate relationship with the public it is pretty impossible not to admire Bungies ability to make a game that sells.

As for it being an insult to our mentality, selling it as a full priced game, you may want to remember that every second person is below average intelligence… so to speak.
