Halo : Reach Breaks Concurrent Online Users Record

Halo : Reach has managed to break its first Xbox 360 record, that of the number of Xbox live users simultaneously playing online.

Bungie, the developer behind the game, posted yesterday that Halo : Reach has surpassed the all-time record for Halo 3 concurrent unique users on Live.

The game was only launched yesterday morning and it is not surprising that Halo : Reach has shattered that record so quickly; after all, there has never been that many Xbox Live players.

It's almost one year that the record was last broken with the release of Modern Warfare 2 with more than two million people connected online in November 2009.

The game has already managed to top most gaming charts in the UK and there's also evidence that Halo : Reach is also fuelling sales of other Xbox related products like Xbox Live credits and Xbox 360 gaming console.
