Bungie wheels out Halo 3 stats

And promises some news today.

Having gotten ourselves excited about Half-Life 2: Episode Two PC stats earlier, it'd be remiss of us not to remark on the stats fed to the world by Bungie on Friday about how people have been doing with Halo 3.

The headline statistic is that 43.28 percent of people whose Xbox 360s are connected to Xbox Live have finished the game on Normal difficulty, while 15.14 percent have conquered it on Legendary. A (surprisingly large, if you ask us) 2.07 percent of people have unlocked all 1000 points of the Gamerscore.

Bungie's regular weekly update also reveals that 8.68 percent of people have unlocked the Marathon Man Achievement, which involves locating and accessing all the Terminals in the Campaign mode. Those are people. That's the sun. It's going to be all right.

If you want to see how some of your fellow Eurogamers are doing, poke your nose around the Halo 3 gamepage's door and you can check out your own Friend leaderboard, among other things, and note that really quite a lot of you have all 49 Achievements unlocked.

Finally, Bungie's latest update also says to expect some sort of news today, 19th November, claiming that "folks are definitely going to want to check back in here at Bungie.net and keep faces pressed to their monitors like children breathing on school bus windows in November, because there will be news". So more on that later, presumably.
