It was yet another bad month for video game sales - even worse than expected - as 2010 has become one of the worst years in recent industry history.
The final installment of the Xbox 360's blockbuster Halo series has become the fastest-selling in franchise history. Reaching $200 million in sales in just 24 hours, it has attained the second highest launch sales of any video game.

Microsoft is poised to launch its Halo Reach multiplayer beta for the Xbox 360.
