OMG one of the Bungie Halo 3 DEVs JUST had a bowel movement!!!!! QUICK make a zillion posts EVERYWHERE about it! Wait make that a NEOWIN exclusive!

Seesh, Halo fandom is the worst kind.

I love it when people try to pass off official boxart by photoshopping old pictures together.

The Halo 3 Logo just has some duplicate layered wind filters behind it, and why the hell is the background a PURE BLACK oval.

What a load of crock.

Is it me or do the box shots have "flaws". They don't say ONLY ON XBOX and they have the old Xbox and Xbox Live logos. I know it is "PENDING" put it just seems fishy...

That is so incredibly fake. First of all the cover looks cheap, and second, why would Bungie already have a release date while the game isn't even finished yet.

They've said time after time, it'll be released when it's done. Rushing this thing is the last they would do, they learned that from Halo 2. If the game isn't ready, it'll come out later, simple as that.

I duno, why does Microsoft have release dates months before something is finished? who knows, places just do that kind of thing

Did you notice the text "actual box art pending" at the top of each box picture?

I'd say the box art is fake. It looks incredibly photoshopped to me. Also looks incredibly lame.

can't you read the big red text above it?

I'm thinking about using it as a halloween costume. People would really crack up the candy for that. But wait I can't because it comes out in November and HW is in October.

That is NOT the final version of Helmet Collector's bundle. That is a prototype design. This was confirmed by Bungie last week. There are no public images of what the final Helmet edition will look like.

Speaking of Bungie, they have said several times to not trust a release date until it comes out in an official MS press release or until Bungie posts the date. So far, neither has happened. However, Nov 15th is the date that most people would have guessed since it is associated with the releases of other major XBOX/HALO products.

BTW: The helmet is about the size of a mini basketball. It's just wide enough to fit over a DVD case.

UGH! If the release date really is 11/15/07 that sucks. Its so far away :angry:

It's a long time to wait, but we have a lot of killer apps coming between now and then. Not only am I looking forward to Halo 3, but Mass Effect is going to be one of the biggest games made in history.
