More than 1 billion games of Halo 3 have been played, according to this Bungie blog post. That’s more than we have fingers and toes, so it’s a bit beyond us.

“Saturday night, while many of us were stuffing food into our faces, plenty of folks were still playing Halo 3,” said the firm in the update.

“At precisely 6.36pm PST, in a three minute and nineteen second game of Infection on Foundry, four players participated in Halo 3’s one billionth match.”
