Well... yeah... One store's branch, and a few (well, it could have easily been several hundred, that "administrator error" seemed to save thier buts) people getting a game early isn't that big of a deal. But still, that's bullshit, especally with the "DO NOT SELL BEFORE 9/25" sticker they have on them. My main point is just that Microsoft is totally justified, and should take action against Argos. Threatening all the buyer/players of the game though? DEFINATLY retarded. The buyer's didn't do anything wrong nor hurt Microsoft in any way, but Microsoft quickly changed their minds, so I think it was just an over-reaction.

Actually. It still is.
The release date is mentioned so many times and over 90% of those who wanted to buy Halo 3 should know that already.
Knowing that fact, and getting them before the release date?
Obviously, guilty.

What if these were the people who didn't play H1 and 2? They just wanted to play H3 and didn't look at the release time.

Snaddict's right, Glahardt's wrong. Consumers are never to blame for faulty product or it's delivery.

Well it's those dumb people like the hardcore gamers that are like "Gimee this game NOW!" without paying attention to anything else OR it's the old grandmas that walk in and are like "My grandson wants this game for his birthday, I know you have it."P.S. I like your Big Daddy thing ^_^
