New York's Halo 3 launch was no riot, but it was close

CNET News reports: "At its climax, the New York Halo 3 launch resembled some combination of a red-carpet premiere, a wild sporting event and an apocalyptic action movie. The security presence was considerable, considering the energy of the crowd. But when midnight rolled around, it was unclear whether the eager, heavily sugared and caffeinated gamers or the camera-wielding press would be the ones to start any kind of riot. Luckily, no one did."

The story is too old to be commented.

Youre right, they didnt go all out for the console launches.

But Halo 3 was a spectacle last night! And I live in a relatively small city.

Its the software that makes the console NOT the hardware. Brainwashed idiots, I bet you'd all give up your freedom and take the mark over Halo 3 eh?

It was'nt as big as the PS3 launch. PS3 launch was taking LIVES. Halo 3 did'nt.

One the local gamestops that I went to had about 150 customers. I don't even want to imagine what the bigger towns were like.
