'Halo 3' Is Here!

Well in time for the upcoming holiday season, Microsoft started selling "Halo 3" at midnight last night at selected retail outlets. I haven't yet heard reports of lines forming and riot police being called, but the first two "Halo"s sold a total of over 15 million copies.

"Halo 3" is available exclusively for the Xbox 360, and is expected to fuel an increase in the sales of the gaming platform.

"Halo 3" is the final chapter of the science-fiction blockbuster "Spartan 117," and its availability has been much-discussed on the Web for weeks. Four million people have pre-ordered the game, and Microsoft is expected to sell another 3 million copies this week, with the standard edition retailing for $60.

Have you invested your money and time playing the first two versions of "Halo"? Do you have your copy of "Halo 3" yet? Tell me how hardcore a gamer you are at [email protected].
