Don’t Hate the Game, Hate the Player

Halo Wars Dated and Collector’s Edition Details

A few months ago it was announced that the studio developing Halo Wars, Ensemble Studios (Ages of Empire) would be closing its gate after the release of the game. This usually doens’t bode well for a game but the team is putting all they have into this game and the RTS prequel to Halo is a game to watch for sure.

Halo Wars will be released in February with a standard and collector’s edition ($59.99 and $79.99 respectively) which will include many goodies such as the Halo Wars: Genesis graphic novel written by Eric Nylund of Halo books fame, the upcoming ‘Halo 3 Mythic Map Pack’ add-on, an extra in-game vehicle (the Honor Guard Wraith), six cards describing the game’s leaders and a “Spirit of Fire” crew member patch. On top of that anyone who preorders the game will get a code for a downloadable in-game Warthog vehicle sporting flame decals.

And since a picture is worth a thousand words…

4.7M Copies of Fallout 3 in One Week

thumbs-upBethesda announced proudly today that their latest post-apocalyptic venture sold about 4.7 million copies worldwide for a global price of $300M.

Considering the core base is probably a bit hardcore, even with Oblivion‘s success last year, I would expect sales to grow as word of mouth spreads. I for one can’t wait to nuke me some mutants!
