A copy of Halo 3 was sold today on Ebay in Britain. Of course people expected it to go for more than retail (duh), but this is a little ridiculous.
Wow that is rediculous. Will he even get this delivered in time to be early?
Look at the current third / fourth gen games like Halo3 and Ninja Gaiden 2, and you can see that the xbox360 has maxed out graphically. They look pretty similar or even worse than first gen titles from the PS3 such as Motorstorm and Ninja Gaiden Sigma that's a remake port made by a branched off bunch of unimportant kids inexeperienced with the PS3. With an important title like Halo3, you'd think Microsoft would make a giant graphicall leap. But they couldn't.
Grand Turimso 5 is only the beginning for the PS3, and you can tell that no xbox360 game ever will graphically compare. It'll only get better and better, wheras the XBOX360 has had two to three years already and there has been no sign of a graphical breakthrough at all. Grand Turismo 5 is a graphical breakthrough as Motostorm. I'd argue that the xbox360 cannot do Motostorm with all it's dust and mud and particle effects and lighting and physics.
xbox360 is a 60mph car. PS3 is a 200-600 mph Lamborghinni beast. Microsoft plays dirty and changes laws and rules so that all cars faster than it must run at near 60mph so that it would be "fair" to them. They also place sneaky roadblocks and other dirty tricks along the way. But that is bad for ALL gamers. Because graphics will be capped off at 60mph instead of 600mph for this gen unless the PS3 finds a way to counter the bad people...
Microsoft has committed the crime of knowingly releasing faulty hardware to the public.
Microsoft has committed the crime of restricting all graphics power to their maximum level, which is pretty low.
Micrsofot and xbots have committed the crime of unethical business practices as you see in this room and through bribed media and secret handshakes.
All gamers suffer because of the xbox360 because all graphics are being capped off at 60mph when it should be 600mph or more this generation. We'll have to wait and see if the PS3 can outmanuever the unethical practices of their competition. You only resort to dirty tricks if you feel you cannot win fair and square.
I do not believe that this gen should be capped off at 60mph with the xbox360. ALL GAMERS SHOULD REBEL AGAINST THIS, EVEN THE XBOTS.
whoever got that must be a hardcore fan to not wait 4 1/2 days for the launch date.
£250, and thats not even including the delivery cost. What a loser.
this happened with Bioshock and now with Halo 3, just a four-five days before launch, a total waste
i wonder if it was the same guy.
he could have just waited and pre-ordered the legendary edition for £70 which is £30ish cheaper than the one he bought off ebay(probably just a standard edition)
Heres your sign........
that guy is just stupid and the guy that made the article does nothing but take the piss out of him, best part for me was(maybe you can play some multiplayer with... oh wait, no one else has it yet)ROFL
"patience is a virtue".
And it's only a 5 day wait.
$205 isn't that much considering how many xbox fanboys are out there. I was expecting like $1,000 atleast.
True - if I had a million pound a year job or won the lottery I would definately buy it early, all my mates would come over and we'd play multplayer! Don't hate cause everyone is jealous!
PS I didnt buy it lol!
Pathetic fanboy can't wait less than a week?
Ive just booked a train ticket to london it cost £80 for what 3hours boring travel each way, for some £100 isnt a lot of money
icdo wonder if it was the Mart though lol
The guy who wrote this sounds a bit bitter to say the least. The guy who paid this is obviously a complete and utter Halo fanatic but it's his money so why are people getting upset?
Honestly Seeing how some of you Halo fans talk about this game being the best game ever it's not surprising. After all the hype and all the lime light Halo is recieving I'm not surprised in the least. If anything I'd say it's less than I was expecting.
I'm not saying I'm any better, I've paid more than something was worth because it meant that much to me. I think a lot of people who are complaining are just jealous.
It's not about jealousy at all. It's about disbelief.
I guess I am naive to think that people are smarter than this. And when it is proven to me that they aren't...I gotta mention it.
Welcome to Halo3
Dang I am getting my Legendary on release day for £70 what a MUG!
Yeah. So much money for just a standard edition. It´s smarter to wait a few days. Now that is a true fan. (Or a total jackass) And it´s the same thing about the ones getting banned for playing a out dated beta. Just wait for the damn game! It´s not worth getting banned just because you played the game for a couple of hours.
erm. Isn't microsoft still banning accounts who play it early? (which I think is a good idea actually).
That situation has already been resolved. And no they aren't.
Jesus f***, that is totally ridiculous. Some people need a reality check, delivered on the end of a baseball bat.
some people have more money in their pockets than brains in their heads. Like early PS3 buyers and PC gamers.
halo fans are such losers, you all need p*ssy and a INTELLIGENT BRAIN
What you said is extremely rude. One guy buys a game early for a lot of money ( probably because he's rich ) and all of a sudden everybody who's a fan of the series is a loser? You're the one who needs some intelligence. You're a very narrow-minded individual you'll never get anywhere in life thinking the way you do. Please grow up.
