The new game in the series 'Halo', which hit stores last Tuesday, is a boost for an industry that moves about 60,000 million dollars.
"We feel very good with numbers 'Halo: Reach'. We have surpassed the sales of 'Halo 3', which tells us that the industry has a good health," said Phil Spencer, vice president of Microsoft Game Studios.
