    The epic saga continues with Halo® 3, the hugely anticipated sequel to the highly successful and critically acclaimed Halo franchise. In this third chapter of the Halo trilogy, Master Chief returns, bringing the epic conflict between the Covenant, the Flood, and the entire human race to a dramatic, pulse-pounding climax. Can YOU finish the fight?


    Although most of us won't be playing the game for another week, some Comet and Woolworths stores have broken the release date, and so I thought I'd start this thead for the lucky few.

    A friend who now has the game has confirmed tha there are indeed 11 multiplayer maps:

    Constuct
    Epitaph
    Guardian
    High Ground
    Isolation
    Last Resort
    Narrows
    Sandtrap
    Snowbound
    The Pit
    Valhalla

    More details to follow when I talk to him again. I won't contain any spoilers at this point.

    Apparently it's on the net now, for all those evil pirates.

    EDIT: I'm not suggesting this guy downloaded it. Just mentioning it.

    Apparently my local (Macclesfield) Argos has them for collection available now. Not sure what to do as I actually got an Elite from Blockbuster with Halo 3 thrown in once it was released:confused:

    Could always ebay it I suppose but that's not really my style!

    Just had a look on their website and get this if I try to reserve for collection ( I tried a number of stores to see if it was a general thing, and it seems to say the same for them all):

    "Can be ordered for collection
    Mon 24th September - Wed 26th September"

    Which seems to imply I couldn't walk in today and pick it up, but I could get it on Monday ... perhaps they patched the loophole that allowed you to get it early. Nice work either way -- make the system for for us for a change :)

    Hm, Cheltenham store says I can collect on Monday - Thursday next week. Boo!

    Do you reckon all Argos stores have got it in then? Surely you can't just keep refreshing the page until it says "Pick up today"!?
