Is it just me or is the Halo 3 hype getting out of hand all ready.

Don’t get me wrong I loved the first game, but the second seemed rushed and unfinished; and now game sites are putting up news stories when there is one new image of the game www.oxm.co.uk.

This game is nearly a year away and I know I’ll be disappointed when it comes out because of the hype.

Do you think game companies are over hyping games and putting gamers expectations to high so we end up being disappointed with the game and saying to ourselves the “next one will be great”?

I herd it was coming out March 07. A friend told me to watch the cops and robbers video via xbl marketplace and look at the liscense plates on the car... at one point it says GOW than 1106. (its release date) and at another it says HALO3 than 07. I havn't checked it out yet but I have read about it and others seen to have seen it also.

I don't think the hype is too much. Halo is the biggest game franchise on the Xbox and it deserves all the hype its getting/creating. What's so great about the Halo games is the multiplayer. I mean let's face it, it basically made Xbox Live grow.
I'm a fan of the campaign mode more than the multiplayer. I'd rather play LAN parties than online nowadays because of all the cheaters and ridiculously good players out there that are probably half my age. After GOW, I'm even more curious to see what Bungie will come up with because they know they have to kick it up several notches.

If those gamestop guys actually knew what they were talking about they would know that it is very improbable for it to come out on Nov 1st as that is a Thursday, US release dates are normally on Tuesday, and gamestop normally receives the titles in on Wednesday. Thus Nov 6/7 or Nov 13/14 would be a much more logical date to state. The date in their computer is just a place holder so that they can reap tons of preorder money and stuff that into a savings account and draw interest off of it.

When they bought EB they spent some serious cash and are constantly trying to cut corners in order to make the most money. They are cutting stores hours while making them stay open longer, thus making the Manager work sometimes more than 60h per week just because he is on Salary and is the only employee allowed to get overtime without special permission from corporate.

It's a shame that they bought EB, it was much better when they were two seperate companies.

I had a look tonight and he is wright, one car does say HA L0307 which could mean Halo 3 sometime in 2007 or a Halo game (Halo War) in march 2007, or Halo 3 in July.
