  Halo 3 is taking over September - Official

We all know how much we crave Halo 3, but did you know it has become the fastest-selling preordered video game in history? Halo 3 has set a new record, passing over 1 million preorders in North America. The demand for the Legendary edition, featuring the Spartan helmet, is so much greater than anticipated that it now stands a chance of being completely sold out by September 25th when Halo 3 is finally released.

Corporations aren't being naive about the scale of the game either - many are getting involved somehow this fall:

  • Mountain Dew will debut Mountain Dew Game Fuel on August 13th. It's basically Mountain Dew, with a 'blast' of citrus cherry and added caffeine to give the energy needed for Halo 3 all-nighters, and will be the first beverage co-branded with a video game.
  • 7-Eleven will have several in-store promotions, including three collectible Slurpee cups, and a promotion with Mountain Dew Game Fuel and Doritos offers thousands of Halo 3-themed prizes, including a grand prize of a chance to be a voice actor in Halo Wars. In select 7-11's, Mountain Dew will offer limited quantities of a special-edition aluminum bottle of Game Fuel with a Halo 3 brand on it, which aims to be highly collectible.
  • Pontiac will host Gamers Garage events in select locations, giving people the chance to play Halo 3 before release. Also, to support the launch of their new car, the G6 GXP Street, "Pontiac will provide 1,000 consumers with a copy of the game, and one lucky gamer will win a limited-edition "Halo 3" G6 GXP Street car." However I was careful to note that they said 'consumers,' not 'participants,' so there is likely some kind of purchase involved, although that's just a guess.
  • Burger King hasn't forgotten about the Xbox 360 (remember those 3 BK-related games they had for a while?). They will feature national, in-restaurant Halo 3-themed packaging from Sept. 24 to Oct. 22, offering exclusive content on their website starting the 23rd.
  • Comcast will host exclusive video content, including user-generated movies and machinima, on http://gameinvasion.net and http://www.ziddio.com. They will also have standard and HD Halo 3 videos through their 'On Demand' service.
  • Halo 3 is the official sponsor of the Projekt Revolution tour featuring bands Linkin Park and My Chemical Romance. "Exclusive "Halo 3" VIP events will take place in select cities on the tour, where attendees will receive "Halo 3"-themed merchandise and have an opportunity to meet the members of Linkin Park."

As if this all wasn't enough, don't forget about the Halo: Uprising comics being released starting later this August, which lead up to where Halo 3 begins. You can read the full article about the Halo presales and promotions here, or simply stare at this until Halo 3's release. Enjoy! big grin

Hell I'd be Halo-istian? if I could. Halo 3 is so friggen huge and people say it's overrated. Bull***** if it was overrated it wouldn't have so many fans. Totally getting halo 3, totally getting halo wars, and totally hailing bungie as the best video game maker in human history (it's better than pong).

Hey, my first 2 monthly stipends from Air Force ROTC in college? straight to Xbox 360 and Halo 3. Then Halo Wars or Ace Combat 6, whichever comes first. Then Guitar Hero.

It took me a second to get it, but I don't know why you spelled it backwards.

Seems like overkill, but any hit game/movie/book is.Roll Eyes (sarcastic)

Honestly, I wish people would stop bashing it - every single successful product has a loyal, and sometimes fanatical, fanbase. Why is Halo so different?
