    One hour, 7 minutes, and I will be at my friendly video game retailer, purchasing a copy of the game. Anyone else?

    Some friends and I went to EB Games tonight around 11:30PM and there were about 350 people waiting. The line was going up and down the mall. The people in front had been there since 6PM.

    I went to our local store and waited less than half an hour, there were about 100 - 150 people there, but they had four registers open.

    What the hell is the deal with this game? I only bought an Xbox for PGR2 for the ring'. Why is there such a hype? Isnt it just like Half Life???

    I've played Halo on the PC & I'm still not a fan of it. Besides, I'm still working on GTA San Andreas. Oh well, to each his (or her) own.

    not nearly the same on the PC - get yourself and X-box and Halo2 and you will be hooked.

    There was about 175 people here at the local mall, I was #84 (we had to take numbers) and it took me until 1am because they were only running 2 registers... then I played until 3:30am, woke up at 10 and just stopped playing for lunch.

    Mike360 - I'd say the excitement about it is that the gameplay is really tuned well, it's a game that's fairly easy to pick up (as far as controls and interaction) but becomes very engrossing. The beauty of it is the simplicity in a way, and the bonuses are the little details that make it such an involving experience.

    Then, after playing it through a few times, the multiplayer modes are even more fun. Getting 8, 12, or 16 guys together on a few different Xboxes and playing the VS modes are the best. In college we'd have 12 guys playing for like 4-6 hours straight, and a lot of them didn't regularly play videogames, but got sucked into Halo.

    The real fun is definitely in the team play. Last night, we started playing at 1:00am. We only had six people, but it was plenty of fun to play for a few hours. That new sword thing ROCKS!

    What? I've never seen an Xbox/PS2 version of any game that was better than the PC version. For one, the graphics will NEVER look as good as a PC, the TV just doesn't have the resolution (have to wait for HDTV).

    I don't know why people are freaking out over Halo 2 either. Half-Life 2 is the one I'm waiting on, and for now I'll just be playing Unreal Tournament 2004.

    What would be fun is for some Ferrarichat people to pick a game, pick a server, and everyone meet up to virtually kill one another.

    We hooked up two TVs and two Xboxs and have 3 vs. 3 Team Slayer. I thought my head was going to cave in!

    BTW: The Elite's sword IS awesome.
