Gamers (at least the XBOX ones) around the world have had November 6th circled on their calendars for some time now. That is of course the highly anticipated release date of HALO 4. The Xbox exclusive 1st person shooter series has been one of the best selling game series in history. Now the latest game is ready to add to that legacy.Vancouver gamers can get their hands on a copy of the game at a special midnight launch at the Granville & Robson Future Shop on the morning of the 6th. In addition to selling the game as soon as they legally can, our friends at Future Shop are hosting a HALO 4 multi-player tournament in-store from 9:00pm to 11:59pm on November 5th. A whole bunch of prizes are available in the tournament, but if you are like me you are only concerned about the grand prize. Boy is it a doozey! The grand prize winner will get an exclusive HALO 4 Xbox 360 bundle AND a pair of Warhead 7.1 Wireless Surround Headset.
In addition to the downtown location, Future Shops all over BC will be opening their doors to HALO fans at midnight so they can get their hands on the highly anticipated title. Here is a list of other BC Future Shops holding midnight launches.
