Bungie has just released some insane play statistics for Halo: Reach's first week in the wild.

According to a post on, the game has been played 70 million times, translating to 5901 years of combined playtime.

More than two million files have been uploaded to File Shares, 165 billion credits have been earned, 20 million daily challenges have been completed and 709,840 weekly challenges have been completed.
