    Any other lucky people out there got theirs already? I'll be online tonight if you fancy some easy kills :D

    Anyone who has not pre-ordered their copy should check out the deal in Dixon$, can get Halo2 plus either SC:pT, R63(not Black Arrow) or Midway Arcade Classics for £39.99.

    i don't think Dixon$ are selling early, i was just chatting with one of the monkeys in there and he was telling me about the deals, plus on their tills it came up with a price of £99!! must be to prevent early sales i guess.

    Unfortunately not. Giffing Amazon dont even have the metal tin stock yet so its not even been shipped. Been playing this online on Xbconnect for a couple of weeks, I can tell you the online multiplayer is outstanding.

    Have to wait another week or so before I can play it on live :( Unless I go down to Tescos tonight and pick up a copy :thumbsup:

    IMHO, fastest is always Gameplay with first class post. I expect to have it Wed as it has shipped already earlier today. If not then Thurs at the latest.

    Ordered the new Plantronics Halo2 headset too. Bit expensive but I hate the "streetstyle" original live headset.

    i hate gameplay.

    ive used them in the past and got games day before release.

    for fifa 2005 i got the shipping email 2 dyas beofre release and the game turned up on the tuesday after release.

    so i went for game online for halo - and guess what - it aint even shipped yet.

    all online games retailers want shooting - their cs is rubbish.

    You are correct. I forgot what day it was :blush: Still applies Tescos 24hrs have these for sale at 12am apparently...

    Not true. I got GTASA and PS2 lite on release day morning from Game. In only ordered the day before as well :thumbsup:

    However Amazon delivery is absolutely pants. My metal tin from them is now down as "Item dispatching soon" that means it will probably go today but because I was stupid and went for the free delivery I probably wont get it until Friday morning. Never mind I wont have time to play it until Friday night anyway and I do get the nice Tin Version that seems to be sold out now in most places for only £34.99 :thumbsup:

    I will be on to kick your arses on friday night :devil:

    oh ive no doubt it will arive on thursday - its just that i called them yesterday and was told its guaranteed to be here by 1pm. when you've booked the day off, its not 1 pm i want it at - its 9am.

    What is their "1st to play it guarantee" all about? i could walk into a store at midnight tonight and be "first to play".

    i only ordered online in the hope of it coming early. on the day is a waste of time IMHO - just get it on the high street now the prices are on a par with online retailers.

    monkey - one word - YES. now i'm not a massive Halo fan, i don't believe its the best thing since sliced bread, but this game is just GOOD, its enjoyable(even more so when there are english people to play with on live) 1st 2 levels of single player have been top notch, except for on far a fetched bit involving a bomb, but yes it has been worth the wait, and once a good community is built up it can only get better.

    Never had a problem with Gameplay. As I predicted yesterday, Gameplay have delivered again. Arrived at 9am! Always select First Class shipping and you should not have a problem.

    Still waiting for my TV to come back from service though so I have nothing to play the damn game on except a 15inch portable. Typical...

    My order with Game (placed nearly 2 years ago) doesn't seem to be going anywhere. I've booked the day off work tomorrow, so it had better turn up! :mad:

    Amazon hasn't shipped mine yet, and is listing an expected delivery date of Nov. 13-15. :censored:

    Oh well, I'll have to put up with playing co-op/MP on my flatmate's copy. (Play shipped his yesterday)

    In fairness I preordered mine from Amazon 6 months ago so I am glad they have shipped it this morning. I went for the free shipping so might not get it tommorow morning but got a good chance I would think.

    Incidentally they are showing Delivery estimate as 15 Nov 2004 - 16 Nov 2004 :eek: How can it take 5-6 days when it has been shipped today. Bit worrying....
