    Well we all know it was going to happen....still don't think it will push the console sales up though....people that already own the 360 will be the revenue.

    Still cool though....I guess I shoulda pre ordered....I think I'll make it if I don't get it on day one though.



    Bless

    wow.... that's a lot.

    I guess Halo 3 is going to sell pretty well then, isn't it.

    That's what they want you to think....:) but seriously i think that everyone is pre-ordering their copy so they have one without question and that the day of sales won't be as high as halo one or 2

    For me and my friends the Halo series has always been about the multiplayer whether over System Link or Xbox Live, along with the Buzz games on the PS2, they're the best multiplayer experiences on a console.

    I know that nothing radically different is gonna change in the third installment and no doubt some of the maps will probably be repeated as well except in higher resolution. But, why fix something when it ain't broke?

    As long as we're having fun and got the beers out, me and my mates won't be complaining! :D

    For the Legendary Edition, yes. But all other editions, you'll be fine. They'll be plenty to go around.

    That is pretty amazing. Hats off to MSBungie. Good news for the hardcore gamers.

    That's a lot of people who didn't mind the single player in Halo 2 :D personally I'm waiting to see if it's a good game.

    I think the opposite. A lot of people have been holding their breath for Halo 3 and have been waiting to switch until then.

    Especially the Halo community in general, Halo 2 players haven't had a reason to switch.

    I personally know quite a few people who have always said they'll wait to get a 360 until Halo 3 comes out.

    Aren't there about 8 million 360 owners? Aren't all XBox owners Halo fans? :)

    QFT...

    Halo 3 for me is on the back burner.

    Eternal Sonata + Bioshock are at the top of my list. (Hopefully I'm not too late to the Bioshock LE preorder party, but since it ships the 21st I think I have enough time as long as I do it no later than this coming Friday...8/17)

    I do want Halo 3 and I will pick up the 'middle' one (with the bonus dvd) for the extra $10, but otherwise...it's on the back burner.

    IMO - there are much better/newer [experience] games coming out that I'm looking forward to more than Halo 3.

    I pre ordered last year as a safety precaution. But i do not think there will be a significant shortage. It seems like its pretty easy to mass produce a game as there are few parts to put in the box. It should be pretty easy to get your hands on halo. After all microsoft should have learned there lesson and they pushed the realease date up like 2 months.

    If I buy the dirt bike helmet addition, does it include mouse support? :) *sneaks away* ¬¬

    I'm a fan of halo 1&2, but I'm not about to go out and buy the 360 becouse of Halo 3. I'm just gonna go to my friends house and play his copy! Oh yeah, there is supposed to be a online co-op game mode. looks fun:)

    No but I hear if you wear the helmet while playing the game, somehow a space-time continuum black hole void opens that puts you into another realm where you become Master Chief and actually enter the game to 'finish the fight'. :D

    Why even bother with a plastic helmet, when you can make the whole suit out of cardboard. :)

    The only thing that would happen if I put that helmet on, besides my heed becoming hot and smelly, is that anyone that saw me would never let me hear the end of it. :p

    I bet we'll have 4 times that amount of sales the first day. Everyone I know, including myself, hasn't pre-ordered Halo 3 even though we will get it that day. That is about 6 people right there. I think most people have realized that you don't need to pre-order media anymore, there are always enough in stock. Movies, books, games, they never run out. I will just go out after work and pick one up somewhere, there are about a dozen locations around my area that will have it, shouldn't be a problem.
