It's starting out with 5 "Halo fans" (teenagers) from "Libertyville, Illinois" playing the Halo theme on electric violin, bass guitar, drums, keyboard, and bongos.

It's actually really cool, with their outdoor amphitheater setup.

Sales figures...blahblah.

Xbox 360 games outsold both Wii/PS3 games combined since they launched.

18 times since the Wii/PS3 launched has a 3rd party Xbox 360 game broke the top 10 in game sales. This has happened precisely 0 for Wii/Ps3 thus far.

5 best sellers of last generation's sales:

GTA3
GTA3: Vice city
GTA3: San Andreas
Halo
Halo 2

Both franchises on 360 -- both launching this holiday.

MS signs agreement with Disney to bring Disney movies to Xbox Live, in HD...

Not exciting, but surprising considering Disney's allegiance with Apple and Bluray (and Jobs' board position on Disney)
