    Is the Halo 2 Plantronics headset (or the other Plantronics headset) available in the UK yet?

    http://www.plantronics.com/gaming

    I've seen import prices ranging from £31.99 to £49.99, but hear the UK price is likely to be £25-£30 when it launches here.

    Anyone have info?

    I think the Halo2 ones look like junk . Is there a more rugged version about ?
    More militaristic less toy like?

    Erm, Why? More rugged? What exactly do you need to do with your headset, trekking through the Andes or something?!

    Personally i think it looks like an awesome headset, looks like it could be really comfy as well, what with all the adjustments that can be made. Lets hope they lauch it over here and not just for thoses spawny yanks.

    Maybe...
    Maybe I just don't want to look as if I've got a spangle stuck to my head?

    You know what is really cool about voice in Halo 2. Can only hear the people near you. Really really cool. I love the online MP. Easiliy the best FPS i have ever played, and getting past Quake 2 on the PC in its day is a near impossible feat.....

    MS announced a european Halo 2 Xbox Live kit earlier this week. It comes with a headset but they have not confirmed if its the new special Halo2 headset.

    Its £59.99 including the game, headset and a years Live subscription - if you are already a subscriber it will add 12 months onto your existing subscription expiry date.
