According to a document on its Web site, thousands of Gamestop stores across the nation are holding midnight launches for Halo Wars. Like many of you, I'm impressed with what Ensemble Studios has done in terms of creating a real-time strategy control scheme for a console. If my frickin' defective Xbox 360 was working properly, I'd be playing more of it. That said, I can understand a midnight launch for a mainline Halo game, but a spin-off? I'm not convinced the demand is there. I envision thousands of stores having a dozen or so customers lined up at midnight.
How about you? Will you be lining up at Gamestop for a chance to get Halo Wars as soon as possible? Do you think the game is big enough that it warrants a midnight launch?
