    Solid. I'm still not hyped at all for this game, though- Halo 2 was really that bad, in my opinion.

    I may give it a rent someday, though.

    wow that's a great score from a crowd that don't normally go into the FPS genre.

    No doubt we'll be seeing 9 & 10's all over the place here, but I'm stll only getting it because I can get it for €1

    If I had to pay full price, I probably would give it a miss. Too many other games coming out that I probably wont have enough time to play it anyway.

    Yeah, definitely...Famitsu is a tough crowd to please. Good thing though...nice to have reviewers in this world who aren't gaga over a game too easily.

    a little unexpected from Fam but thats good I suppose.

    it should be funny to see the mass media orgasm when they gush about how Halo 3 is the best thing since sliced bread

    Cool....I'm still not excited about the game but will get it to finish the fight I started years ago and then move on to the jerks in multiplayer. Its no surprise this game will receive nothing but 9-10s but hopefully the story will be a great close out to the series.

    €1? Why?

    Anyways, I really hope Halo 3 is much better than Halo 2 which was really disappointing.

    I'm still not hyped about Halo 3 though but I'll probably buy it when I get a 360 or when the PC version is released, whichever comes first.

    Special offer at gamestop. Trade any two 360 games and get Halo3 for €1

    I've got more than 1 or 2 older games laying around doing nothing, so that's why I'll go for it.

    H3 has 2 million pre-orders already
    H2 had 1.5 million pre-orders and a year after it's released it had sold a total of 7 million.

    i think Halo 3 will reach 12 million in a year easy.

    Um... There aren't that many 360's out?

    I say it makes 5 million max in a year. That's assuming half of the people with 360's buy Halo 3. Which would be a little bit remarkable.

    Dont forget that there have been quite a few who have said and maintained that they will get a 360 when Halo3 hits

    Most people who are doing that are buying the console... now.

    Why? That way, when the 25th comes around, everythings all set up, their Live account, everything. All they gotta do is break that shrinkwrap and put that disc into their machine.

    On another funnier note, we now sell video game hardware and software in the stores. (Radioshack.)

    Mainly due to Halo 3.

    Famitsu gave Halo 2 exactly the same score: 37/40 so it's hardly surprising that they come out with such a high score

    famitsu are ironically not only the rpg lovers but also the 360 lovers in japan ;)

    Anyone know of any deals like this going on in the US? I have quite a few old 360 games I don't play that I wouldn't mind trading in. I looked on the gamestop website and they say nothing about that.

    Also, I have a question regarding Halo 3 campaign:

    As most of you know by know, there is going to be 4-person online co-op in Halo 3. The first person gets to play as Master Chief and the other 3 play as elites. My question is:

    Hopefully at some point Cortana will meet back up with Master Chief and be back in his suite. When this happens, we can hear her suggestions and thoughts. If you are playing co-op and not MC, will we still hear Cortana talk? I mean, the Elite don't have the special suite that she can link into and it would not flow with the story to have the Elite communicate with her.

    I will admit, I was extremely excited when I heard there was going to online co-op in Halo 3, but I was also shocked they didn't just do it like the other 2 games, where the extra person is another Spartan. It never bothered me that both people were the same, and it also solved this problem. Anyone has any ideas?

    about halo marketing:

    why is it that there is so much ads and marketing done about halo in the US/UK and like zero around here ?

    i also checked the stocks of my favorite local gameshop and they have 100+(!) limited legendary editions with helmets (129€ *gasp*) and multiple hundreds of normal ones available

    somebody from non-uk-europe saw any halo 3 ads already ?

    I've seen a whole load of single and double page magazine adverts in October issues that are out already (Car and Popular Mechanics) And I also saw posters in shop windows.

    Hmmm, Argos sold them? In the past when a retailer breaks the launch date, it goes on sale immediately afterwards.

    This is usual practice, strange it hasn't happened with Halo. I mean, surely its not bigger than the retail industry.
