So Halo 3 is coming, life has finally cycled back to it’s Zenful ways. The 6 months before a new Halo release comes out is like a slingshot being stretched more and more until xbox is stretching it so much that when they let go you could head shot Tartarus across Ascension with it. O.K. maybe a little dramatic. Anyways here is the release information for Orange County. And yes you know it would be cool to have a sling shot in Halo 3.
One of the biggest video games ever is back The much-anticipated Halo 3 for the Xbox 360 goes on sale Monday night.
And the Best Buy store in Fullerton is one of only a handful of Best Buy stores that plan to open at midnight to sell the game to the most dedicated fans. Other OC midnight openings include GameStop and the Newport Beach Circuit City (see end of post).
Best Buy won’t say how many games each store is stocking. But a spokeswoman tells me, “We we will definitely be ready for the buying frenzy (both on Monday night and beyond)! As always, we try to maintain enough stock to make sure that anyone who wants to buy the game at anytime can do so.”
Will Halo 3 top Halo 2’s first-day sales record of $125 million?
Here’s the deal for Best Buy. Line up whenever you want, but pre-launch madness starts at 10:30 p.m. Best Buy is giving away lots of stuff, such as t-shirts, hats, glow balls and bam-bam sticks. The first 25 people in line get an “exclusive Halo blow-up game chair with built-in speakers.”
The Fullerton store is providing photo ops with Halo’s Master Chief.
Best Buy will have four versions of the game available: Halo 3, Halo 3 Limited Edition (left), and Halo 3 Legendary Edition and the special edition Halo 3 Xbox 360, which I first spotted at E3 earlier this year.
All are available as pre-orders on Amazon for $59.99, $69.99 and $129.99 and $399.99.
And kids, if you’re under 17, bring someone older with you because Best Buy says it’s sticking to its policy to only sell games rated M for mature.
