Halo 3: "1000 UK stores will be open at Midnight" - to Launch with a Bang in the UK

Despite Westminster Councils decision to shelve plans for a London, Oxford Street Halo 3 event, Microsoft has said the that game won't launch in the UK without a party. Speaking to CVG, Stephen McGill, Microsoft's head of gaming and entertainment, said that more than a thousand retailers would be selling Halo 3 from midnight, and that Halo 3 would be taking over London's IMAX cinema for a star-studded bash.

"Halo 3 launches in the UK on Sept. 26, and although we are not going to be running any official midnight opening events along London's Oxford Street (due to Westminster Council concerns of huge crowds) we are pleased to confirm that over 1,000 retailers around London and the rest of the UK will be opening up at midnight to ensure fans can get their copy of Halo 3 it as soon as humanly possible - including many Game, Gamestation, HMV and Virgin Megastores stores, and of those that can't open at midnight many will be opening early on the Wednesday 26th too."
