Halo 3 is coming and it's going to be huge. 10,000 retail stores are expected to stay open until or open at midnight September 25th to begin selling the game as soon as possible.
Additionally, thanks to Best Buy, for 3 days after Halo 3 releases, everyone that owns an Xbox 360 and has broadband internet access will have Xbox Live Gold access.
If you were waiting to try Xbox Live Gold (if you don't have it, you forfeit your 360), here's your chance to try it from September 25 to 27th.
Microsoft has also announced the "Unite to Fight" promotion, which will include regional events at retailers in different cities, including New York City, Seattle, Los Angeles, and Miami.
At the event, gamers will get the chance to win Halo 3 merchandise and play the game with local celebs.
