I'll tell you in about two hours.

I have a copy.

Not the leaked BS, the real thing. Limited Edition, in the tin.

Just got home from work, about to tear into it.

I know it is your birthday and all Will Curran, and you are excited, but you might want to move this discussion over to the game section. Some people get a little testy when things are put different places. ;)

Happy Birthday and good luck with your new game.

OH MY GOD!

Battle Rifle rrullleeeeeesssss. First thing that struck me are the crispness of the graphics, and the sounds are just amazing.

More to report as I play more.

A friend and I are running around the Multi player maps as I type this.

:D:D:D:D:D

Someone on another forum told me to post proof I had it, and not the hacked version. Here is a link to some pics of the game sitting on my desk.

I am a happy boy.

Got an XBox just so I could play Halo 2. Does that indicate my level of interest? :)

In the meantime being playing Halo and downloading every Halo 2 movie I come across.

All set for multiplayer and XBox Live, so when it's out "officially" there should be a thread to post gamer tags and organise some matches. Gonna be cool.

You lucky bastard! I think you have the same tv as me, Panasonic (can see the two dots on either side). Tell us more! Maybe I can play it on my new G5 in about 5 years :rolleyes:

I seem to be the only one not interested in Halo 2.

Don't get me wrong, I played the first one, and it was okay.

...but it was a very...by the numbers FPS. Shoot stuff, walk, shoot stuff, continue.

Don't get me wrong, I like the XBox (Less than the Gamecube, more than the PS2) but I'm looking forward to Metroid Prime 2 much more.

And Killzone looks rather neat, or at least, more interesting than Halo 2.

Nope - I'm another one!
Was just driving home and listening on the radio to the DJ interviewing one of the shops opening at midnight to sell it...
and they are tipping lots of people are going to call in si ck or take the day off tomorrow...

I don't even know what it is?!?!
Oh hang on I should clarify that... I heard it was an X Box thing... so its a computer game... and the 2 implies there was a Halo (aka Halo 1).

I played Halo through co-op and played a little multi here and there but... I have no desire at all to play Halo 2. I was thinking I should go to EB and run in saying something like, "Do you have any copies of.... ya know... that one game?" ... ... ... "No not Halo 2! Britney's Dance Beat!"

"Britney's Dance Beat" RULZ!!!!!!!! :p

......gotta go frow up now.........

I talked my wife into picking up an Xbox bundle for me for Xmas. I'll probably get Halo 2 sooner or later, but I'm far more excited about Prince of Persia 2. The first one rocked even on my PS2, so the 2nd on Xbox should be smokin' good.

I've got my LE tin (+free poster and CD Case) from the midnight opening and just played through the first level, but I have to go sleep now. First impressions are good - it looks great and seems to run well. Duel wielding rocks but I love grenades too much to do it all the time. The SMG duel wielded with a plasma rifle is my fav combo so far, but I really haven't tried the others much yet.

This is probably my last post ever, after midnight tonight, you won't see me anymore... :)

How were you guys able to get it early? Is the release date the same around the world?

I'll see you all in Live, I'm going to open a can of whoopass for you...

Two things:

-Is it just me, or is that "Tin" everyone is talking about more or less just a gray DVD case? That's what it sure looks like in all the pictures I'm seeing.

-The folks that bought the XBox Joybox Frag (Which let's you use a keyboard/mouse on your XBox) are gonna totally own you folks out there with just a controller. Get ready to lose...alot.
