TGS: People Waiting 150 Minutes to Play Halo: ODST

The first public day of Tokyo Game Show 2009 has opened, and as expected, it's packed. While Destructoid hasn't taken an exact head count, they can confirm that at least 15 people showed up.

The reason they're here, of course, are the games. Or rather, to spend time waiting in line to play games.

By "people" you're referring to the 2 Xbox 360 owners in Japan.

Give me one Good Reason as to why you should wait over 2 Hours to play Halo 3 Overrated Depressing Sh*te Trilogy
I mean C'mon BoTs this Game aint Exactly Killzone 2 is it

THAMMER14327d ago

Halo is more popular than KILZONE.

"Then it hit us -- waiting in line and playing the game nets you a free ODST shirt and Halo stickers. Now we get it! Actually, no we don't. This is just silly." Of course it is!

THAMMER14327d ago

I never would have expected that from what you r hear or read about Japans tastes for 1st person shooters.

Halo 3 ODST seems to be earning some respect.

Well, at the same time, the article says the majority waiting in line were American tourists. And, swag was being given out (dunno about you, but swag is the most important thing at these events xD). It could also depend on the length of the ODST demo. When I was at PAX, I could never get my hands on the demo because the wait was so long. Also, the lines were decent, so it could just be the length.

**I'm not trying to put down ODST or anything, just judging from the description of the article.

The Matrix4327d ago

Um...was ODST not released in Japan? Otherwise why not just go out and buy or rent it instead of waiting for 3 hours.

dreamcast4327d ago

Why isn't the title "People wait 150 minutes to play Left 4 Dead 2", considering it says that's how long the wait was?

jk, I know why... not as catchy, especially for destructoid.

YourCall4327d ago

"I'm not trying to put down ODST or anything, just judging from the description of the article."

Yet you felt compelled to type an entire paragraph depicting why people would be there for reasons "OTHER" than to play halo. Besides, why would they wait in the ODST line for swag?

HolyOrangeCows4327d ago


But seriously, it's a very short game.

RockmanII74327d ago

ODST honestly is very short. Me and a few of my friends were doing 4-player Xbox Live Co-op and we beat the game on legendary in 3 1/2 hours. But because of the Vidmaster Challenges and Firefight, I know it will keep me entertained until at least my next big game ( )

I really appreciate that Halo fans still trust Bungie, even Bungie use a 2 year old engine.
