No Live for Halo 3? No Worries Thanks to Best Buy
If you plan on picking up Halo 3 but don’t have an Xbox Live Gold account, worry not – Best Buy’s got you covered. On September 25, 26 and 27, Xbox Live Gold will be free to everyone with a broadband internet connection to hook up to their 360. In other words, all of the awesome features that require online – online co-op, Forge, and all the rest, with the exception of File Share – will be available for you to use in that three day period.
Additionally, Best Buy will be holding a contest to give away 8,000 Microsoft Points to 144 random winners. Then, if you’re one of those lucky 144, you’ll be entered to win what can only be described as a really hot home theater setup – comprised of a Samsung AS720 5.1, HDMI-equipped Home Theater system, an upscaling DVD player and the state of the art LED-powered Samsung HLT6187 61 inch 1080p DLP TV.
And if you’re STILL not lucky enough after having won some Microsoft Points and being entered to win that setup, those super-lucky 144 will be entered to win the Halo 3-themed Pontiac G6 GXP Street Edition you see pictured above. Dayuhm.
Keep your eye on this page once September 25 rolls around.
