    Default Halo 3 (Xbox 360) - anyone else ordered it?

    Last night whilst browsing Amazon, I realised that it was next week, 26th, it was due out (knew it was late September, just couldn't recall the exact date) so I thought I may as well pre-order it. They were selling it for £39.99, instead of £49.99, and I couldn't see anywhere else selling it for any less, so ordered it from them as I had a Gift Certificate balance so cost me all of zero pounds in the end.

    I did the same with Halo 2 and it actually arrived the day before the launch date!! - seems a number of other people who ordered from Amazon did as well. Wonder if they'll make the same mistake this year!

    So anyone else ordered/going to order it?

    lol, the thing with pre-owned, especially games like that, is that they often aren't that much cheaper I've noticed. The stores will usually sell them at full retail, i.e. £49.99 in this case, so a pre-owned one goes up at £39.99 - same price as you can get it online for. OK, they may go for a bit less, say £35, but I'd, personally, rather pay a few quid more for a brand new one over one that's been mauled by a kid.

    I don't know why you're bothering D! What with looking after this busy forum and your impending new arrival you won't have the time to play games

    lol, you wanna bet! It's partly Mrs Duncan I'm buying it for. She loves playing Halo and Halo 2 on co-operative and kicking some alien ass!

    Edit: Tried to get her into things like Splinter Cell but they're too 'stealthy' for her, she just prefers the ones where anything that moves you shoot it!! In Splinter Cell she has a habit of clicking the wrong button and dropping a grenade at our feet!! Did manage to get her playing a bit of Rainbow Six Las Vegas, which she kinda liked.

    I tried, but was way too late to get it. The best way was to get that other game, something shock, as it had a code in there to get you the beta I believe.

    What price was it on play.com when you ordered Pete? Same as it is now? i.e. £40.
