Halo 3 will be released at 12:01am on Tuesday, September 25th, 2007. Odds are you will see many hundreds of people lined up at your local EBGameStop, Best Buy, Circuit City, or 7-11 hours in advance. Unless you plan on going to the Metreon in San Francisco, in which case you may already be in line.
That’s right, ladies and dudes — there are people already lining up outside the Metreon in anticipation of being the first to get their hands on Halo 3. I hope they brought a lot of tacos, and batteries for their Game Boy, because they’re going to be waiting thirteen days. That’s 312 hours. That’s 18,720 minutes. That’s 1,123,200 seconds.
…that’s a really long ass time!
Now, while I am most impressed with their fanaticism to be the FIRST to get their grubby little hands on Halo 3, in the end it is a futile effort. After all, they live on the pacific coast, three hours behind us sophisticated East Coast folk, but I digress.
You guys… I blew the image up in Photoshop, and it looks like it’s from the damn Pontiac IMAX showing! So, to those people who went to the IMAX showing that I inadvertently insulted… my bad.
[Thanks to Brad, Emily, "capthaize" (pot much?) and Paul Foley for sending me this image... repeatedly... could I get a source link?]
