Best thing Microsoft do. They spend a lot on marketing - pushing the product hard. Call of Duty and Grand Theft Auto were other examples - they seem to get exclusive marketing rights to the big AAA games often. It helps get customers and perhaps more importantly mind-share.

This isn't surprising I also noticed this I wanted to play Halo: Reach but didn't have a 360. All that changed yesterday when I bought one and also got Halo: Reach. The commercial didn't have me saying "im going to get a 360 and buy that" because I had that mindset from the get go. They do, in my opinion, overhype it a little too much but the game is so popular they want everybody and their mom playing it.

Talk about it. Any online video even remotely tied to videogames i open on youtube kicks off with the reach ad. Its getting really annoying and i end up refreshing the page to skip it. These guys have really gone to town with Reach.
