Hollywood has done it before, making movies out of video games. But what about if this happens to Halo: Reach? Yeah right, that's a different story. 

The incomparable success of the Halo: Reach has urged people from Dreamworks to conceptualize a Halo film. It is an old knowledge that many filmmakers are trying to bring Halo: Reach into the silverscreen. There were rumors that directors like Steven Spielberg and Neil Blomkamp are interested with the concept.

Dreamworks is treading a new path that were not done before by Universal and Fox. The film company is looking at novels adapted from Halo. This is entirely different which raises the hope of many Halo fans. However, it is still a long journey to make since no scriptwriter was appointed yet.

Oh no! Halo: Reach is currently out of reach as it says "Disc Read Error." Have you called Microsoft customer support already?

Although Halo: Reach had one of the most successful unveiling last week, the game continues to make the gonfalons for awry reasons. According to some rnet forums, Halo: Reach players are encountering disc read errors leaving gamers unfit to try their hand on the game. It’s currently vague what causes the flaw, but many report that older XBox 360 consoles have trouble reading the game disc. It was also discovered last week that due to limited hard drive, the new 4GB XBox 360s were unable to play the game’s online co-op mode. As told by a Microsoft representative, those affected should contact their customer support at 1-800-4MY-XBOX for troubleshooting assistance.

Unless you object, Halo:Reach is the considered the biggest entertainment release for 2010. It reigned supreme against Iron Man 2 and Toy Story 3.

Halo: Reach is doing well on sales and is not quite a surprise. Computer games addicts put Halo: Reach on top.

The game recorder two hundred million dollars sale on the first day. Gamers was so amused with the game that they are willing to spend money. In fact, it was not tagged as the biggest entertainment release of 2010; much bigger than Iron Man 2. Even Toy Story 3 was dethroned.

A total of 333,000 copies are sold and still counting more. It’s really interesting to see how the next Call of Duty (Black Ops) stands up to this. The supremacy of Halo: Reach is defined.

Halo: Reach remains undefeated unless a new Battletoads comes out this year.

One word to describe Xbox game Halo: Reach: Fantastic.

To summarize the detailed reviewed made by Erik Brudvig of ign.com, Halo: Reach met the high bar and its core components enabled Halo: Reach to compete well against other games.

Other elements that made Halo: Reach a fantastic package are its campaign, solid storytelling and excellent audio-visual experience. Also, the competitive multiplayer gives a familiar feel but is still equipped with new options and has faster pacing.
