Of course it was Chief as a kid - and the idea, was that as a kid he was wondering about beings from other planets, wishing he could meet them - but now he probably wishes he never had.


It was obvious right???

That what I presumed it meant.

Meh? I'm just not excited for this, sorry.

Am I alone in thinking that airing this during MNF is catering to the wrong demographic?

I keep watching it over and over, the graphics just look amazing. It literally looks like Chief is right there on screen, like movie quality. Ahh I can't wait

TONS of new screenshots over at IGN...

Those new Brutes look really weird. Wish they had kept the look of the H2 ones, for continuity's sake.

If you look, they are the same,(same size, same color, same heads) they just are all wearing elite armor by the looks of it, mind you heavily modded. I can't wait to pick up a Spiker, the stronger version of the needler.

So who has pre-ordered this bad boy?

About a week ago I pre-ordered the Limited Collector's Edition off Amazon. For $10 more than standard edition it's a great deal, and I am NOT paying $120 for another bonus disk and a helmet. I also picked up one of the Halo 3 Slurpee cups at 7-Eleven. Sadly, they didn't have the Game Fuel flavor. Next promotion, Master Chief meets the Burger King!



Microsoft is really pulling out their marketing guns for this launch. Slurpees, Mountain Dew, Burger King, what next? Pontiacs aimed at the target Halo demographic? Oh, wait...

Bought and beat Halo for my new PC last year....Could care less about 2 or 3, but I'll get around to them some day.

Sadly, I don't think I'll have my 360 in time to join in the fun right away. :( I will get to play over at my friend's though.

I'm not preordering.  I'm going to gamble that Best Buy will have enough.

Games don't sell out like Consoles do they?

Considering that you can pre-order your copy of Halo 3 at, of all places, 7-Eleven, the standard version should be in very good supply pretty much everywhere.

The Limited and Legendary Editions may be a little tougher to come by after launch, but I think you can still pre-order any of the three, though.
