Halo 3: Midnight launch cancelled

CVG has learnt that all plans for a Halo 3 midnight launch have been pulled as Westminster council feared that too many fans would turn up, causing chaos in the streets of London in the early hours of September 26.

Halo 3 will launch on September 26 and it's quite likely that it'll bigger than the PS3 launch back in March. At least the council thinks so, as that went ahead fine. When contacted HMV knew nothing of a midnight launch for Halo 3.

A GAME employee did though: "It's opening hours as usual," we were told. "The council won't allow a midnight launch."

Microsoft wouldn't comment on any plans for the Halo 3 launch when contacted. One thing's for sure though, it looks like you'll have to wait until the shops open on the morning of September 26 to get a copy. We'll let you know if anything changes.

Is this where I am supposed to complain about the "council" all being payed off by Sony? Or am I supposed to complain the "council" is payed off by Microsoft to say that Halo3 launch will be bigger then the PS3 launch?

Its paid off by the jack thompson wanna be in england (forgot his name) for being a Violent game, duh! j/k who cares though feel bad for the halo fans in london waiting for there game.

ArduousAndy4023d ago

its being paid by sony. Since they know it would be bigger then the PS3 launch.

Although you do have a good point. microsoft could have paid off the council with a statement to say that the Launch is bigger then the ps3.

For all we know it could have been paid by nintendo.

AdolfBinBush4023d ago

jkoz4023d ago

If the title really wanted to reflect the story, it would've said WHERE, instead of everyone clicking thinking that it was canceled worldwide... reported.

WilliamRLBaker4023d ago

lockload4023d ago

MalcomGrasley4023d ago

Wait a minute! Let's get this straight...A bunch of Xbots are all going to stand in line for a crappy last gen looking fps!

How will console gaming ever recover!

What a bunch of losers.

The Chief of Mjolnir4023d ago

And you are a fanboy who can´t realize that graphics are not everything.

MalcomGrasley4023d ago

LOL! Halo 3's crappy last gen looking graphics is turning Xbots into Nbots!

Snukadaman4023d ago

for the chance too play lair...a year later.

Saint Sony4023d ago

Losers like you are the ones that are destroying the console gaming.

AnalFace4023d ago

You NOB. Your avatar says it all. Halo 3 isnt that great. It does not look next gen, and its plays the same as the second (ive played 3 BTW)
BTW the PS3 will be around for a long time. Even if the games suck.

BLACKJACK VII4023d ago (Edited 4023d ago )

You N00B. Your comment says it all. Lair isnt that great. It does not look next gen, and its plays like total crap. (*&#@#$%&#*)
BTW the Xbox 360 will be around for a long time. Even though the PS3 games still suck.

Snooze4023d ago

I don't want to seem like a fanboy here, but his post has nothing to do with Lair. And lair does look next gen. It may control like crap but there is no denying it's next gen graphics.

But I don't see lair anywhere in his post.
