The craze for Halo 3 continues to grow

Microsoft today proudly announced that its highly anticipated Halo 3 video game exceeded one million pre-orders.

The video game is the "fastest selling pre-ordered video game in history," according to Microsoft.  Stores such as Amazon, GameStop, Wal-Mart, and Best Buy accepting pre-orders for Halo 3 are reporting an extremely high level of pre-orders.

"What we've experienced is nothing short of phenomenal," said Bob McKenzie, GameStop senior vice president of merchandising.  "'Halo 3' has eclipsed many previous records and will prove to one of the must-have items of 2007."

To help promote the game, Microsoft and other retailers are offering a number of different products to help coincide with the launch of Halo 3. 

Microsoft is offering the typical collector editions of the video game along with a special edition Halo 3 Zune for military members.  A Halo 3 headset and controller will also be available to users in the future.

The pricey Halo 3: Legendary Editionversion of the game is likely to sell out before the Halo 3 launch.

Pepsi, Doritos and Burger King all have special edition Halo 3 labels and wrappers to commemorate the game's launch. Pontiac and 7-Eleven also plan to use Halo 3 as a marketing tool for a limited time.

Halo 3 is expected to be released on September 25.

"We shipped it on Saturday. Then on Sunday, we rested." -- Steve Jobs on the iPad launch
