Microsoft announced that Halo: Reach made $200 million in its first 24 hours on the United states and the European market. "Microsoft claim that the game benefited from the biggest launch in 2010 in the United States, and compare the game's initial takings with those of blockbusters like Iron Man 2, Alice in Wonderland and Toy Story 3, in their first three days, the $200 million proving they're right."
