Halo 3 Set for Sept. 25 Release

Microsoft has just confirmed rumors that Halo 3 will be released on Tuesday, September 25.

"Halo 3 is much more than a video game release; it’s the biggest entertainment event of the year," said Peter Moore, corporate vice president of Microsoft’s Interactive Entertainment Business. "On Sept. 25, we intend to deliver a finale that will go down in entertainment history and leave people around the world with an experience that will be shared and enjoyed for years to come."

Between now and September 25, expect an increase in Halo-related merchandise. Items such as the Zune and cola will be getting the Halo 3 treatment, as the world prepares for Master Chief’s biggest adventure yet. Encased in collectible packaging, the Zune-Halo 3 edition digital media player comes pre-loaded with artwork, trailers and music from all three Halo games, as well as an exclusive new episode of Red vs. Blue. The Zune-Halo 3 edition (estimated $249) will be available exclusively at GameStop starting June 15.

So what are your ideas for crazy Halo 3 marketing ploys? A Halo 3 Mustang? Master Chief soap? If it were up to me, we’d see a Halo 3 George Foreman Grill in time for the Fourth of July.
