Halo 3 Goes Gold

halo3_finish_the_fight.jpg

Finally, what is arguably the biggest release of the year, Halo 3, has gone gold. All that really means is that the game has been finalized and has begun being manufactured – maybe not the most exciting sounding thing in the world, but it does tell us that the game’s development cycle is complete. With over a million preorders in North America alone, Halo 3 is bound to sell like hotcakes once September 25 rolls around.

“This is a huge milestone for us and a big cause for celebration at Bungie and Microsoft Game Studios,” said Harold Ryan, Studio Head at Bungie Studios. “This is the game we’ve always wanted to make and certainly the best game our studio has developed. We can’t wait for gamers to get their hands on it on Sept. 25.”

@Xboxlenny: When a game goes gold, it usually means that the code has been finalized and has been sent in order to be manufactured for retail.

I predict that Pizza and Mountain Dew sales will go through the roof on Sept. 25th. Oh yea, and potato chips. Lots and lots of potato chips

I just hope that my Xbox will survive as I play it. I don’t want it to die on me in the middle of a game like it’s done in the past–otherwise, simply can’t wait. (I’ve decided not to touch my 360 until the game’s released. I don’t want any accidental RROD on me to hinder my Halo 3)

i dont understand why people worrying about your xbox dying, and being like “im not gonna play it”. If its such a big deal, why dont yall invest 20 bucks for an intercooler, should ease your mind some.

Intercoolers have a well documented track record of being Xbox killing machines.

Its called a ghetto cooler. Get a super powerful 12cm 12V fan, and some dryer tube, and some duct tape, and cereal boxes, and a wall wart, and you have the best 360 vacuum fan evar!

Halo 2

Playstation 3 kicks xbox360 but!!!!!!!!

On August 30, 2007 at 3:35 pm

Halo 3 might be the one and only reason to buy an xbox 360… right after your done playing it, you know you’ll trade it in for a PS3. :razz:

Nothing good has come from Microsoft since….. well….. never!!! :roll:

Then again, most people are at home playing with their Wii, rather than a 360. :wink:

Dear Fellow Americans,

We have a saying in Texas… well I suppose it’s a saying in other states as well… it goes…
Halo 3 is….. it’s….. well it doesn’t suck.
And dogonit, if your not with me playing Halo 3, then you are against me and therefore a terrorist…. and I’m going to send my troops after you.
I will find your weapons of mass destruction… that I sold to you before, and even if I don’t find them… I will blow you up.

God Bless America, especially the rednecks who I paid to vote for me… your cheques will be in the mail…. I promise.

Your presidential dipstick,

George Bush

I totaly understand what Gold means, I was being sarcastic. I just wanted to emphasise on how big this game will be. So stock up on Pizza and Mountian Dew. Myself the game is enough.

Dudes and Dudets! For Sure I’m a Mountain Dew Die Hard Til the Last Drop Fan, but when I read on the side of my Dew Can that Pespi Makes it, that pisses me the Flip Off!!! I know I’ll Be Stocking up on Bags Of Hot Cheetos, But The Dew Has Lost Its Flava when I found this out. To Many Devil Worshiping Cults involved in this Circle for me to Dew It Up anymore, sorry Fans I just Don’t Roll With the Idiots who Feel Like Dying Because of 1 Leader saying it’s For God’s Worth. Bull. I’m Switching My Drink Habbits Back To Coca Cola to Drive Me Into a Sugar Hype while Beating You All In Halo 3 Fo Sho! even thow Coca Cola had a History of putting real Coak in their Taste, it’s Still Old Skool for me and I Luv It!
