My friend bought it at 10:30am... I called him at 4:30 and he said he's been playing non-stop since he got it. He then said in another 4 hours he'd be heading to some friends' house to hook up all four of their combined XBox's and go for some 8 on 8 multiplayer action.

Scary this devotion!

I've heard of another person, who bought 30 copies of Halo 2 from Walmart, and then drove down to Best Buy where the line up went around the building, and sold the copies for $30 USD more then what he paid for them, to the people in the back of the line... wow. :o

My EBGames bought Collecters Edition (In the cool tin case) arrived yesterday. Pretty damn good game, despite a few plot holes and graphic glitches...

Beat the single player today. Hint to all those about to beat it: Let the credits roll. A very interesting/confusing cutscene will play. I would love to talk about (and analyze) it but it would be a major spoiler...

I downloaded it over a month ago and have been playing most weekends with friends. I was going to go somewhere and play a 4 xbox networked game tonight but the phone call woke me up and I was mad and tired and told them no. I am an idiot!
