Halo: Reach seems to be the closest thing to a gaming religious experience this side of Bible Adventures. Bungie has provided some massive numbers showing off the huge commercial success and popularity of the game. These are week one numbers, or essentially numbers from the first four days! If I had a nickle for every Credit earned I'd have $3,924,978,044.75 and I'd be inventing addictions like chickoholism. (It's when you blenderize bacon-wrapped baby fried chickens and shoot it directly into your hair follicles.) Check out Bungie's incredible stats.

I don't know what a Man-year is. I can only assume it's hairier than a Boy-year, and not as in touch with its feelings as a Woman-year. Quick fact: If the numbers for Halo: Reach were stacked end to end they would reach to the moon and back 57 times! (This might not be a measurable fact. It might be a reference to the varieties of ketchup.) Keep up the good fight!
