So they spent $100 Mil, and made $220 mil inside of 24 hours.

Now include all the money they're gonna make from licensed figures, posters, and other assorted toys and licensed merchandise, and there's no way in hell that anybody can claim that videogame developers are some kind of "starving artists" who need every penny they can make.

Huge. Glad to see Halo still makes fans of lesser games and consoles salty.

Umm Microsoft being the games publisher will take most of the cash, 343 will get the rest of it.
