342w ago - Gamers across Europe got their hands on Halo 3 at midnight on Tuesday, one of the most anticipated and heavily marketed titles in history.

Thousands of gamers queued on Monday at stores in the US, Australia and New Zealand to be the first to play it. The Xbox 360 title is Microsoft's key weapon in the console wars with Sony and Nintendo.

Microsoft hopes day one sales will top £70m ($140m), more than the opening takings of any movie in history.
 

Xbox 360: PAL Halo 3 Legendary Editions screwed?

50°
342w ago - Do you live in a PAL territory? Did you somehow manage to get your hands on a Legendary Edition? Looking forward to prising it from it's virginal packaging?

If you were particularly lucky, some of you had your Legendary editions delivered to an address of your choice today. Perhaps the rest of us receiving our own tomorrow should be a bit more nervous about taking a peek inside that box.

Of those who received theirs today - some are speaking of a mysterious second disk, a complete second Halo 3 game DVD. Great you think? Not really... The extra copy of the game takes the space where the additional 'special' edition stuff should be. No calibration tool, no HD Cinematics and no Day in the life of Bungie to be found.

Could this be a widespread problem with PAL versions? Very possibly... Keeping in mind the limited number of people actually receiving theirs today, seeing this issue being raised by various people over a number of gaming forums is somewhat troubling. More so with the recent news that many disks within the special edition packaging are ending up scratched and at worst, unplayable.

We are seeking further information on this potential disaster from some of the folks affected and will update this post as soon as we have something concrete.
