It is the same PR posted in previous CoD... shipment sales reveune without any hardware counted.
The MS Halo PR was a shame of spin because the game sold way way way less than previous Halo.
Try as you might ethomaz.
But Microsoft always included hardware revenue when talking about Halo first days sales. At least since Halo 3. How do you know harware, or at least Activison share of each bundle, is not included this time.
You should have followed that Neogaf thread more throughly. We are now just in a era of heavy scrutiny for anything MS related.
Unless you belive Activision is giving bundles for free there is no reason to assume part of it is into the $500mi.
