Halo 3 Release date announced

news.bbc.co.uk/1/h…stm

The game debuts in the US on 25 September and one day later in Europe.

Microsoft has only released information about US pricing. The basic game will cost $59.99 (£30), a limited edition for $69.99 and a legendary edition for $129.99. It is likely that European prices will be higher than direct exchange rate conversions suggest.

I've had it pre-ordered on Gameplay for ages now, just hope I actually get one

how much can you pre order it on gameplay for

Yay!!

If you want the basic one it's £39.99 which is pretty good - ]link

Roughly the same date as Team Fortress 2 comes out, I know which one I'll be getting Glad Halo 3 is coming out a day later than the US instead of the usual 6 - 36 months later

Banjo Kazooie is my gaming highlight of the year :-p

16th May was the date for starting the Beta, but they didn't state any times...

I checked my copy of Crackdown this morning and it still advises to 'Check Back at a Later Date'.

apparantly the beta has been cancelled for now because its full of bugs

Where did you find that info?

think atm its a glitch with crackdown, which isn't allowing people to download it.

which they are trying to resolve. its on the bungie website (so not cancelled then :-D)

release info:

Microsoft has revealed tha Halo 3 will begin to ship on Tuesday September 25th with European availability being set to the day after that, the 26th. Microsoft expect Halo 3 to shatter all previous day one entertainment sales records when it hits the streets and will probably be right, games cost much more than a trip to the movies of course.

Thanks to HUKD I still have a preorder dating back to 22nd of March at Amazon for the Legendary Edition at the amazing price of £39.99.

No signs of cancellation so far... Woot.

Halo 2 is Xbox, not 360, but it is 360 compatible.

does anyone know what the cheapest price is for halo 2

Halo 2 still stands up quite well when played upscaled on the 360

what the story for halo,iv never ever played it,but all my friends used to talk about it

Bag yourself a copy of Halo & Halo 2 from fleabay and catch up, before Sept 25th...

As for us stuck with Crackdown and no beta, apparently they are now quoting another 24 hours to rectify the problem...

That means 24 hours of someone else getting the advantage on live, gits...

is halo compatible with xbox 360

Think so...

Not actually tried it.

The Microsoft team has found a solution and it's undergoing final testing now.Assuming the test pass goes according to plan, the fix will come in the form of a Crackdown title update within the next three to six hours.We understand many of you were eagerly awaiting your chance to jump into the Halo 3 Beta and this technical issue has put a damper on your plans. Thankfully the fix is incoming and we're sincerely sorry for any inconvenience this has caused.

We'll keep you posted as soon as we have more information.



Halo Beta by the morning then :]

I've been playing through Halo (I never owned an Xbox), it's quite good but I don't find it ground breaking. Almost finished, then I'll move on to Halo 2 ^_^

But really I'm looking forward to Bioshock (From the makers of System Shock 2 :] ). Ooo and Mass Effect.

I dont like halo bored me alot and by the time i played it i got my a$$ handed to me by 10yr old american kids, it SUX so bad.
