    i liked the demo a lot,i am sure this will find itself on my 360 before long

  • Ollyh

    I’ll probably pick it up in the future.

  • Blue Thunder28

    That’s great… it is a very nice game.

  • Louie

    I don’t like rts games.

    No thanks.

  • XDG Desolation

    @ Louie
    I don’t like RTS games either, but I loved Halo Wars.

  • darkjester74

    Add another one, I just picked up my copy a few minutes ago. Usually not into RTS games myself, but the demo really won me over. Plus I have a friend who is playing so it will be fun to play co-op.


    wow,1 million suckers.

  • Deezul AwT

    Suckers from a guy who keeps playing WWII games over and over

  • Louie

    I played Halo Wars.

    Its a RTS game and I didn’t like it.

    I don’t care if they came out with a GTA RTS.

  • Secret Fuller

    Larry Please answer to this: I have the money to buy Halo Wars, But 1st it wouldint work on my TV because its 60Hz only and my tv doesint support 60Hz, So i dont know if i should buy it anyway!?

  • UnderTaker

    I’m sure that everybody bought it because of the RTS Game that came bundled with the Mythic Maps. Just like the platform sandbox game that came with the Halo 3 Beta .. oh, yeah .. Crackdown.

  • SteelCity Beast

    Halo Wars is GREAT! Bungie did a nice job releasing the Mythic Maps early for Halo Wars. It Made Me Buy The Collectors Edition

  • Lynch182

    i reckon 500,000 bought it for the mythic map pack, you should see ebay and the ammount of missing codes lol. i have bought it and easily done 50hrs + and think it is really good.

  • tsaweeos

    Congrats to Ensemble.

    lol @ Lynch182’s comment

    Yeah I honestly wouldn’t be surprised.


    Deezul- at least I am playing that WWII game over and over with many other gamers.Something halo wars won’t have,sustainability.I’ve watched someone play and it’s boring.Not to mention the annoying constant voice over,and the fact that multiplayer has to many quitters.I’m sure your shelves could use a nice halo wars case though.

    my copy just came in the mail today $35.00 shipped(new) :P

  • bknight2k

    Great game, Ensemble(RIP) did a good job with the game

  • tj sumpthun

    Great game. Definitely deserving of a purchase.

  • JaggedCrane

    Halo Wars definitely deserves to sell more, it’s a well done game.

  • dreampage

    Halo Wars is an extremely well made game as well as a brilliant RTS. I love the way they streamlined the gameplay so after many attempts it really works on the console, and at the same time manages to be an enjoyable experience. Let’s hope it sells even more, it deserves every credit.

  • Robert Hathorne

    I’m so glad they sold a million copies. Now there are 1 million users who will have shoddy report becuase Ensemble was shut down. Way to go Microsoft. Were they really not making enough money for you?

  • H2O Hydr8

    Halo Wars is a good game but still its sad to see Ensemble Studios shut down, I felt MS dropped a really good ball.

  • SeeUInTheFuture

    Awesome news!
