Pre-Order Halo 3 at 7-11!?


It is August and Halo 3 is just around the corner and the Halo advertisements are appearing everywhere. Microsoft and Bungie isn’t just doing some fancy-schmancy advertisements. They have what I call a balls-out marketing plan. It’s not just limited to Slurpees and Mountain Dew like last time, Halo 3 ads have been spotted everywhere.
With Mountain Dew that apparently taste like cough syrup, the lovable Halo Slurpee cups, Doritos, Burger King meals, Pontiac commercials and even sponsoring Projekt Revolution tour with Linkin Park and My Chemical Romance. With all that, why is it that the other day when me and my buddies were at 7-11 my cousin spots a Halo 3 sign saying “Reserve your copy today”? Are they so worried that their game won’t sell that they have to have preorders at 7-11? Without hesitation we asked about the sign and they guy confirmed that yes, you can pre-order your game there, but adds that you can only do it with a manager.

So much for one game. Probably because they expect Halo 3 to not only sell millions of copies in one day, but to also sell Xbox 360 consoles. Halo 3 is going to be big, but doesn’t everyone already know that?
