London cancels all Halo 3 midnight launches

haloDon’t let the following news damper your spirits; the Westminster council canceled all Halo 3 midnight launches in London, in order to repel the chaos that’ll certainly ensue from the eager Halo 3 crowd.

Halo 3 will still launch on September 26th for the UK crowd, but it looks like London will have to pick up Halo 3 during the usual working hours. So to our loyal London readers, at least you can laugh at us for standing in-line at midnight to pick up the game while being deprived of sleep and food.

Stephen McGill, head of gaming and entertainment at Microsoft said to CVG, "Halo 3 launches in the UK on Sept. 26, and although we are not going to be running any official midnight opening events along London’s Oxford Street (due to from Westminster Council concerns of huge crowds) we are pleased to confirm that over 1,000 retailers around London and the rest of the UK will be opening up at midnight to ensure fans can get their copy of Halo 3 it as soon as humanly possible…"

For me, personally, I’ll be enjoying the Crysis demo on September 24th.
