Didn't Halo: Reach get like . . . 1.8 million pre-orders? Or more?
Lol, did you really just ask that question?
When Halo 3 came out I had just found the B.net forums. When Reach was coming out I never followed the Reach forum (as much, I never saw any pre-order stats).
This is the only game in which I've followed anything about pre-orders months ahead of a games release.
What I mean to say is that the 1.8 million pre-orders for Reach was acquired right as the game was about the launch. The halo 4 pre-orders, of course, are going to be nowhere near 1.8 mil pre-orders as the launch date is a while away. And if you're looking at comparison charts, you'll see that Halo 4 is actually tracking ahead by around 200k pre-orders ahead of Reach at the same time Reach was this far away from launch. So, halo 4 is doing very well.
