Halo: Reach Launches At Midnight

As if you didn't know ...

Legendary Edition unboxing

Halo: Reach, the 5th and final Bungie developed game in the series will become available at retail tomorrow, but for those of you who just can't wait, there will be several midnight launches tonight. Gamestop has 10 sites opening at 10 p.m. They'll sell you a copy as soon as the doors open, but they won't hand it to you until after 12:01 a.m. Best Buy will have a midnight launch as well, but it sounds a bit more like a party than what Gamestop is doing. Their craigslist ad says things kick off at 10 p.m., and has a flier that can be printed for entry in a raffle to win a free copy of the game. 24 hour Walmarts will also start selling the game at midnight, but call your local store to see if they've got anything interesting planned.

Many retailers, midnight launch or no, will have some deal or other attached to purchase the the game. The most generous is a $25 coupon at Kmart, though it is restricted to a somewhat uninspiring selection of Xbox 360 games.
