Arguably one of the most eagerly anticipated games of the year, Bungie's Halo 3 has gone gold. Halo 3 will hit store shelves September 25, and Microsoft expects it to break sales records. More than a million folks have already preordered the game, and Microsoft even has a special edition of its Xbox 360 console primed for the release.
Although PC ports of the Halo franchise failed to gain much a popularity among PC gamers, the series has been hugely successful on the Xbox 360. In fact, close three years after its release, Halo 2 remains the most popular game on Xbox Live. However, Bungie's latest opus will face stiff competition from a deep lineup of holiday Xbox 360 titles.
