The show is underway with one contestant playing Halo 3 for 72 hours straight. If he can succeed he will win a copy of Halo 3 and an Xbox 360.

WouldYou72.com is a tough challenge. No sleep for 72 hours is hard enough, let alone having to do an activity during that time. It will be interesting to watch this game show evolve as more contests start. Would You 72?

Bungie records absolutely every stat imaginable and makes those stats available on their gamer portal.

Not only is this fun for the gamer, but a great marketing tool for Halo 3 and Bungie. Gamers are scattering videos and snapshots across the web to show off their Halo abilities. Bungie has done an amazing job expanding Halo 3 to the Web and we can only hope that other game developers take notice.
