50°
378w ago - GameStop should just go ahead and put our tips email in their distribution list, because as soon as something interesting pops up on their POS system, we get a good four or five emails regarding it.

The latest? Apparently an email has come down informing store managers to pull down any signage regarding the Xbox 360 core system, because once their current stock is gone there isn't going to be anymore. Seems like stores are preparing for the rumored new Core system, that comes with the 256MB memory card and wireless controllers. There are rumors upon rumors, but this one rings true.

Xbox 360: PAL Halo 3 Legendary Editions screwed?

50°
378w 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.
