'Halo 4' grosses over $220M on launch day, LA Times reports

Microsoft (MSFT) did not report how many "Halo 4" units it sold on launch day, but the total is estimated at more than 2.2M based on the company's announcement that sales of the game broke $220M, reported The Los Angeles Times. The newest "Call of Duty" sequel, due out today from Activision (ATVI), may more than double Halo's figure, but comparisons are difficult because Call of Duty is available on an additional console platform, the report noted.
