Quite interesting to see the details of what's been spent.

Had to lol at Halo 3 with Microsoft wasting $200 million on advertising

Not too sure, but only a few were released before being pulled from shelves - this is the only known factory sealed on thats in A1 condition.

Will be watching this to see how much it goes for.

Well, that 200 million could have been used to make many games.

I had never played halo or halo 2.

This was the first halo game on a next gen console.. i had a green limited edition halo 360 also.

And thats from someone who hadnt played the first two!

Not true, quite a few people hadn't heard or knew little of it, as at the time of halo ce and 2 the majority had a ps2. So when the 3rd came out and people started to buy xbox's they needed to promote it more, halo reach probably won't have as big a budget, but then again they make so much it doesnt matter to them. Look at MW2 - everyone knew that was coming out, but advertisements were everywhere for it

Would be nice to see a breakdown of costs, see what goes on developers wages, equipment, music etc.

How much does a top games developer earn out of interest and how many would work on a big title on average?
