Apparently there are a lot of stupid people out there who like paying full price for an average expansion pack. Of course we already know this thanks to the last Halo expansion pack.

No surprise to me.
More than half my friends on psn has the game and frankly I can't wait to get the game myself but I would rather wait until I find a cheap Prestige package of the game.
[small]*Fantasizing about having nightvision goggles* [/small] :)
Not gonna happen... sorry bud.
I know but a man can dream. *begins to cry manly tears* :')
I might just get the game then order the goggles seperate from ebay.
[small] Even though I know I'll never buy the goggles I can still dream about having them. :D [/small]

Excuse me for quoting Yahtzee.

Way to make more in a day in a single country than many movies' world-wide opening weekend totals, video game.

Mainstream. I like the sound of that.

Does anybody know about the statistics for the US release? I kinda figure that would break a few records, too.

Go with a nice random "What the policeman?!" Funk :p

Over 1.2 million copies on the first day. Blimey. That is one popular game.

Our UK readers will have to pardon me, as my Brit-slang is rusty: What's British for "holy crap"?

Activision don't care if shops sell it cheap. They decide how much money they want when they sell it to the shops, so it's not as if they're losing money.
And as a British person, I wouldn't naturally say "holy crap", "bloody hell" comes more naturally to me.
