The highly anticipated Halo 3 release happens Monday at midnight. Here are a few cool Halo 3 links to get you more excited (if that is even possible) until you can play the blockbuster game:
[Update: Too many good links to stop at 10
- First of all, if you haven't checked out the Halo 3 site, stop what you are doing, and go see it. Right now! The site, using Silverlight technology, is so cool that you don't even have to be a rabid Halo fanboy to appreciate it. Here, you can take a 360 degree tour of the Halo 3 world, taking custom screenshots along the way. The screenshots can then be used as wallpaper, posted to your blog or website.
- If you're an XBox Live Silver member, visit the Best Buy website, where they are offering 3 days of free online gameplay using XBox Live Gold. You also might win a Pontiac G6 GXP with a custom Halo 3 paint job.
- Get some sweet Halo 3 action figures.
- Visit the Windows Mobile website to pick up some free Halo ringtones and wallpapers for your phone.
- Get a Halo 3 edition Zune. Besides having killer custom graphics & packaging, the Halo 3 Zune comes loaded with music, artwork, trailers, and videos from Halo, Halo 2, and Halo 3 as well as an exclusive episode of Red vs. Blue.
- Watch a live action short film based on the Halo franchise over on MSN.
- Stock up on Halo 3 Dew to fuel those first few days and nights where you will be calling in...cough..."sick" to work.
- XBox 360 Halo Edition. Yeah.
- Grab a Halo Covenant replica weapon or laser tag rifle.
- Pick up a Halo fan suit for the win (if you have a spare $20k.)
- Check out some of the Halo 3 game guide and Halo 3 videos in HD via Silverlight. (thanks, Sean)
- See a couple of lucky guys (who try to) drive a real Warthog.
- And see an 'unbagging' of the Halo 3 press bag (I want to be press!)
