    What are the first two about...is the second one with the tv, did they shut off tv's with a universal remote at a press conference?

    It was a limited edition kit for press that halo fans would really love to get their hands on, and many would gladly buy.

    But I think Gizmodo dropped it from very high to break it for page views.

    I think it was CES. They went round turning off any tvs they could find, including ones people were using in presentations/demos etc.

    They got banned from CES as a result.

    Just did some follow up. They posted a video of the un-boxing, and apparently people got angry that he was not excited or something or just pissed they did not get anything. So as a professional press person...he threw it off a two story building. Dude should be fired for that alone for reacting to comments in such a illogical way. If a professional press person, or whatever the hell he wants to be called is reactant then he should find a different job.

    Clarification:

    Mr. Lam from gizmodo was given a very, very exclusive Halo 3 press kit during the pre-release hype. He did an unboxing video where he showed zero respect and literally threw the contents over his shoulder while unboxing. Fans got mad, so he made a response video where he threw the kit off a second story balcony, then gave away the ending to the game (He kept the $300+ limited edition xbox 360 though).

    The CES thing was gizmodo going around CES '08 with a universal remote shutting off people's presentations/causing mayhem/etc.

    And did anyone catch the youtube video? Roosterteeth makes some great live-action skits.
