    Play have Halo2 up for preorder (god, i cant wait!!!!! :clap: ) but list the game as (standard version). Oddly they dont list any other version, so whats that all about?
    are there going to be multiple versions of Halo2? Anyone have any idea what they are and what the differences will be?

    :confused:

    The US is getting a special edition version in a tinset. Maybe it's coming here as well (but Play don't have it listed yet), and the 'standard' version is just the normal game

    There's no way there'll be a version without Live support. Sorry.

    Absolutely. Halo2 is going to be HUUUUGE not just for Xbox, but for Live as a gaming platform too.

    Don't know why it does it, goldeneye on the N64 used to make me feel sick too, same with metroid prime.
    I can play first person games on a pc all day long with no effects but consoles really get me :(

    Aw man that is sooooo unlucky as those are three fantastic games and must haves on each of their respective platforms.

    It's probably because of 'head bobbing' ie the gun moves up and down to simulate your walking

    Most games let you turn it off but some don't (I don't see why they shouldn't though!) It sometimes makes me feel sick too, and tired for some reason? :confused:

    Yeah I play the 1st one on my PJ too and it's great. If you do go for the import bear in mind that it's a worldwide release date so you won't be getting the usual advantage and that you probably won't be able to use LIve with it (one aspect of the game I'm personally really looking fwd to).

    Just use xb connect. My xbox is chipped, although I could use live I cant be bothered. I am considering buying an ntsc xbox just to play this game on live, but having been one of the first beta testers and used it for a year I am not convinced it is any better than xbconnect.

    I can't say I'm familiar with connect (though I have heard of it), is there a link you could post up for me to have a look at it ?.

    Here's the only site I've found with pre-orders for the UK Limited Edition. The tin version is an extra tenner and includes a second DVD as suggested earlier in the thread, with making ofs and galleries. Go to the link for more info. This means that a) there will be a PAL Ltd Edition, or b) Gameseek are talking out of their :censored: .
