Today I went to gamestop, and saw something there that made me say the exact thing. A box that said Halo 3, preorder now.

WTF?

Last thing I heard, halo 3 wasn't gonna be made until after bungies next project. And the other thing is it said for Xbox, in the amount of time it will take them to make another game, XBox 2 will be out, so I assume they would make it for that.

Tomarrow I am going back, I'll take a picture of it.

I don't see it on the website... maybe it was a phony some mall-goer put?

Nope, it was behind the glass thing where they keep all the brand new games.

Did you ask the people that work there about it?

I couldn't. There's a whole long story about today that I don't feel like typing. But long story short they were busy, we realised we had the wrong reciept, and were on a short time frame.

I WILL get pics tomarrow.

Yeah, it aint the super bowl or something, they have that box out way too early.

Btw, I hope they don't call it "X Box 2" for their own sake.



*continues holding the phone*

...

Is someone gonna call this or something?

Pre-ordering is just an absolute farce. Best Buy wouldn't honor my pre-order for Halo 2, because I couldn't find the damn reciept after buying it all the way back in freaking May. :mad:

All they managed to do was rip me off $5.

I STILL see Halo 2 Special editions all over the place, so just.......meh.....:mad:

No offense, but having just worked retail (in a bookstore, similar to Best Buy) and run into similar situations from the other side, I want to ask how is a store supposed to honor anything you did if you can't prove you did it? ;)

Halo 3 for Xbox? Huh.

Whichever geek put that poster is one loser in life.

With a pre-order the store should keep the record on file, so all you have to do is prove you are who you say you are.

As long as they're also taking pre-orders for Duke Nukem Forever, then they're cool.

You'd think they'd have Halo 2 out for pc before they even said the word halo 3...It is coming out for pc...right.....Right?!?

As of right now, there are no plans to port Halo 2 over to the PC. That may change, but it'll be at least another year I'd guess, probably longer.

Well, I went back yesterday, bought my game, whipped out the camera, went to take the pic, and it said card not found. I looked in it, and sure enough, my dad took the card. So now I just have to wait until my mom will take me back.

I really hate relying on others for transportation.

It would be an obvious mistake if they did. Because it would be just another reason for people not buy an XBox.

But it lets them milk money from PC users who never will get a console. As long as they don't do it half-assed and add co-op it should be okay. But the original was just....bad, I mean sure the veichles, at least for me, controlled a hell of a lot better, but it was still lacking in features. I'd buy it if it's got extra features, even something like Chronicles of Riddick's developer commentary.
