Not Buying Halo 3 Legendary Edition or Xbox 360

Wednesday, September 26th, 2007

Xbox 360 Console Halo 3 Special EditionThere’s a lot of hype going on about Halo 3 for the Xbox 360, and I, for one, will not be be a sucker. I don’t own an Xbox 360 and I certainly don’t plan on buying the console because of this game. I own a “regular” Xbox and I was unimpressed with Halo 1 and Halo 2. Especially with the annoying Halo 2 texture bug.

Halo 3 Legendary EditionI found Halo 1 to be average with noticeable, lazy developer, “copy and paste” moments for the level design. Ho hum…

I never bought Halo 2 because of the bug and it just didn’t wow me. Zzzzz…

Now that Halo 3 is coming out, Microsoft is going nuts releasing 3 different versions of the game! There’s the simple Halo 3, Halo 3 Limited Edition, and the colossal Halo 3 Legendary Edition.

And people are actually buying the legendary version of Halo 3. There’s no way I’m spending $129 on a single game that includes a helmet!

Microsoft has even re-skinned their console into the Xbox 360 Halo 3 Special Edition. I have to admit, that green console looks cool 🙂

I was considering getting the console until I learned one strikingly surprising fact… Get ready, it’s a shocker…

It DOES NOT include the game Halo 3! Do you believe that? Isn’t that confusing? I can imagine many people missing that one little line that says “Halo 3 game is NOT included”. Considering the green version is $50 more expensive than the regular white version, you’d expect it to include the game. Boo Microsoft!

License Plate Thieves

Purple ProtectorBack in May I offered up ideas for some previously available vanity license plates. Since then, these 9 have been stolen reserved by license plate thieves.

So if you see any of these driving on the road, give them a quick honk. Especially if you see the one with the “NOOB” license plate. Just point and laugh, he’s such a n00b.

I don’t blame these thieves. They were good ideas for license plates. I know, because I thought of them 🙂

Here’s another one of my favorite and also available license plates:

Top of Empire plate - 'NEW YORK' in white lettering overlaying a blue panorama showing Niagara Falls, mountains and New York City skyline.

Bottom of Empire passenger plate - 'THE EMPIRE STATE' in white lettering overlaying a dark blue stripe.

Unfortunately “THIEF” is already taken.
