I sold six Halo 3 games in total in my store since the launch, two of them were pre-ordered Limited Editions, 2 normal Halo 3 games and 2 where in an Xbox 360 Halo 3 pack. I expected to be a huge rush, people lining up in front of the store etc, but nothing of that!

There were huge lines where I live at.

Also, a lot of online sales for the product too.

If any store is sold out, they can come to me! :p Take a plane to Amsterdam, get a taxi to where I work, buy the game and while you're at it, buy an Xbox with it, because the PAL game won't work on your NTSC Xbox :p

Jealous of your xbox, mine is currently in pieces stripped down to the motherboard and sat on my desk.

It was noisy, annoying me and I didn't realise that would be covered by any warranty -- oops.

I purchased extended, in-store warranty. I think, considering everything, it is worth it.

And what bit was noisy?

The drive? Or some other bit?

Anyone follow the Halo 3 ad campaign? I thought it was pretty good, got me psyched on the game. Wish I had time for gaming right now...Here's the conclusion to the ad campaign: spoilers

The ad campaign is EXCELLENT IMO.

And the game itself rocks. I've played it 3 times so far, twice on Legendary with my friend so I could play both Master Chief and Arbitor :cool:

Well it was the fan that was noisy, so I disconnected it - wow so quiet now.
Sadly my 360 now no longer works.

Hah! Just kidding not that ignorant, but seriously it was all the fan. I took the heatsyncs off the CPU and GPU and put some arctic silver on there and it was much quieter.

However, I think I dropped a blob somewhere and we all know what happens when we do that. So basically I can't use any controllers on it, the ring of light no longer works and it doesn't like hard drives.

I have put it back in the box and will use it for spares someday.

Will reinvest in one of the arcade models when they come out here, so I can get a hdmi port and the slightly newer revision.

Kinda glad i didn't buy Halo 3 yet!

I took my xbox back to Best Buy, they gave me a replacement power adapter on the spot and all done.

Remind me to never ask you to help me fix my plumbing or anytihng.

Oh, and don't forget to do a site backup :cool:

Pfft, its not even hi def ;p

It looks WAY better when I play it in 1080p mode than in 720p :cool: and the resolution answer is way overblown/discussed. There are several different layers of filtering going on and they are juxtaposed. It's obvious when you play and see different effects during the game. It just looks purdy :cool:
