    beginning of September I will. There will be a zillion copies available, just like when Halo 2 came out so I'm not too worried :)

    Not me...they will not fool me again like they did last time....got all excited and bought the game in the tin can and almost throwed it in the trash can after playing single player.

    I'll just pop in the store and get it.

    Well I'm willing to bet the Single Player is gonna blow just like Halo 2 did, but multi player Halo 2 was good times and worth the cash I spent on it so I'll buy Halo 3 for the same.

    I'll wait for some reviews first. I have zero interest in playing Halo 3 online (same as 2, no mouse) so I'm all for the single player.

    I'm definitely gettin' it but I'm not in a hurry. They'll have plenty. I'm waiting to see who has the best preorder deal.

    I think at Circut City you can get a 4 foot wall sticker thingy of Master Chief with a pre-order. I am considering that. Who wouldn't want to hang out with Master Chief all day?

    I rather hang out with Master Chief's head than a 4-foot wall graphic. :cool:

    You know, it's odd... All of my 360 games have been collector's/limited edition games. Splinter Cell. Rainbow Six. Gears of War. Prey (not that good a game). Viva Piñata :)D). I got all of these through eBay or deals in store, so I didn't actually ever splurge on any of these games.

    But, I feel like I have to keep this streak going and get either the Legendary or Limited edition! :eek: The only difference between Legendary and Limited is the Spartan helmet and special box, right?

    I actually enjoy the Halo story, so I hope 3 will be a vast improvement over 2. The little bit of the beta I played seemed to go smoothly, so I do look forward to the multiplayer.

    Eh, It would be nice to have, but I think there are going to be some better ones coming soon.

    I've done so, had no problems either way. Didn't particularly prefer either one.

    I was excited for this game, especially multiplayer.. but after playing the beta, I'm not so hyped anymore. I just couldn't get into it.

    I thought maybe because I've gotten so used to games like Ghost Recon, I just wasn't used to the faster gameplay anymore. *shrugs*

    I may still get it for single player though.. we'll see.

    There's a copy on pre order for this household. It was pre ordered over 3 months ago I think when it came with a free helmet...not free, but for $100 you got model helmet and **** like that.

    I suppose I'm too much of an FPS fan to bother playing simplified, auto-aiming versions when there's a mouse. I normally go for the best experience so that's probably why I shun console FPS.

    Honest to god I cannot wait to see 360 owners get their arses handed to them on a plate when HL2 comes out. That's if you can play against PC players. Even the PC newbies would get some cannon fodder :D

    The Orange Box won't have Xbox/PS3/PC network compatibility. Valve has it in their development versions, but they said it's not worth the trouble to keep it in the game.

    The only fair PC FPS vs. console FPS test right now is Shadowrun on the 360 and PC.

    And with that, we throw the original Halo 3 topic out the window...

    While I will be getting this game the day it comes out, I probably won't pre-order. With Halo 2, I pre-ordered at GameStop in my local mall. At midnight they only let in like 3 people at a time and it took FOR-EVER!!. I think i was there until like 2am and I wasn't that far in line, maybe 30th. They were just being really slow and some of the people were actually shopping around or playing the demo instead of buying so we had to wait. While in line, the FYE right next door opened and kept calling out that they have plenty of copies and had no lines. I could have been out of there an hour and a half earlier, but I had already given money to GameStop.

    I have no doubt there were be plenty of copies of this game in my area. I could always go to Kmart, they never sell out of stuff games :).

    I'd read that in Shadowrun there was PC vs 360 but I haven't heard anything about how that's actually going. Any info or experience?
