I know Reach is still fairly popular as the third most popular title on Xbox right now, but I miss when it was all everyone spoke of. In Mid September everyone asked "Did you get Reach too?" and "Did you finish the Reach Campaign? What happens?" Now, all everyone talks about it Black Ops or Marvel vs Capcom 3. We once had one million players playing Reach at one time, opening day, and I can only assume how many were playing Campaign adding to those people which would probably be another million. Reach sold 2.2 Million pre orders along with another million in the following week. We were popular, I missed that time. What happened to it? Why did the popularity leave us? Remember Halo 2? Remember how 77% of Live played it? It was the game to get. Remember Halo CE? People bought an Xbox just for that game. Halo 3 didn't really have such a big impact but was one of the most popular titles for 2 years straight even after Modern Warfare 2 came out. Reach made no real impact aside from a month of limelight and suddenly crushed by Black Ops. I predict the Halo CE remake will fault just like Reach, why? It is being released the same month as Modern Warfare 3. This isn't good in the slightest, Gears of War was smart, they delayed their title so it didn't have to deal with competition. I know the CE remake will be released in honor of the 10 years but it won't last long with Modern Warfare 3 coming out a few weeks later. Will Halo ever grace Xbox as most talked about title again? Pray Halo fans. 343 must save Halo from certain destruction. "You can't stop the key from turning." - Gravemind
