    Hey guys, im wondering for those of you who haven't pre ordered (myself included) so you know it it will be easy to pick up in the next 2 weeks. Not necessarily on release day. Just in the near future?

    If it's going to be anything like Halo 2, there will be plenty. Plenty of LE's too. I bought 2 LE's thinkin I could sell one when they became rare, but they didn't. I got mine preordered anyways.

    No, Halo 3 will be sold out for the next year and a half. Copies of even the normal version will be unavailable until September 2008.

    Just kidding. ;)

    Look at the amount of copies we got, yes. We have literally hundreds and hundreds of them.

    GAME, Carlisle.

    :)

    We even got 8 Legendary Editions, which tbh, is about 8 more than we expected.

    so you guys are pretty sure there will be a surplus of them. Thats good to know. I will be picking it up sometime this week hopefully.

    will have to set up a MR game on live every now and then.

    Nice story:

    After hearing of the Argos thing, my friend went into Tesco at 1.AM Saturday night...he convinced the guy that the release date had been pushed back, and got the game! He says its awesome, but I've yet to play it...

    My claim-to-fame was when San Andreas was delivered a day early to my house...I invited my friends round for an all-night-GTA-frenzy...we even thought of going to the midnight queue to take it back, just to see the looks on people's faces...

    It's available right now if you buy it from me :p. I've been playing it since last night, and it's pretty bad ass. I never got into halo, or halo 2, so I'm not being biased, but this is definately a must have game if you have a 360.

    It's quite amazing what people would pay when they really want something. As I said in that FS thread, the store owner got them about 2 weeks ago, and he told me he sold them easily, about 40 copies, on craigslist for $100. Im thinking if no-1 buys this in the next 3 hours, I'm going to drive by an ebgames and just sell it for face value to someone in line. I'm sure they'll be happy.

    Forget all that LE, CE stuff....I'll just pick up the cheapest and play multi player until the jerks become standard again. I really can't see myself spending $100+ on this game or like I did with the tin halo 2 box...it was worthless to me...I didn't watch the extras and the extra book wasn't all that.


    I took a walk into my local shop today and the guy told me he has one for me and ask me if I'm picking it up now.....I told him tomorrow.

    He's trying to sell me the LE with $15 off....still don't want it.


    Bless

    I work at Radioshack, and we got about 30 copies in of the standard, and 4 of the limited. (No legendarys FTL)

    Check your local Radioshacks.

    We just started to carry games this week, not all stores, but ya never know.

    hm the local gamestore (who has an online store) got 160 _legendary_ editions and still had 100 left on friday for order
    they got so many halo 3 alltogether that they actually had to put the huge boxes onto the showroom floor

    kidna surprising that you all got so few limited/legendaries .. after all halo wasn't that popular around here

    i tried to get my copy today, but there were no standard editions, and i didn't want to pay for a collectors edition.

    I had no problem picking it up at Target a few minutes ago. Bestbuy also had stock at all locations when I checked online.

    Just as I had figured. No need to stand in line. No shortages. Much like Halo 2.
