Reports coming in that K-Mart is selling Halo 3 early.

Posted by Jason Triplett Sunday, September 16, 2007

Reports are coming in that some K-Mart locations may be selling Halo 3 early. The store is apparently stocking the regular edition in the game case with everything else.

I have checked the K-Mart in my local area, an there were none in the case.

There is one common thread throughout the reports though, and that is that these people are afraid of getting banned. We have even had suggestions mailed in on the best way not to get banned if you do happen to get the game early.

The most common mentioned method is of course not playing while connected to Live. Furthermore, you have to stay disconnected from Live until the game launch, otherwise the achievements will show online. However, if you stay disconnected until the 25th, the achievements will still be date stamped. So don't be surprised if a lot of people pop up on release day with most or all of the achievements. Be sure to check their date stamp!

Now I am not gonna guess on whether or not Bungie or MS will ban people. Who knows in this case. But if you DO get the game early, wherever you get it, maybe it might be a good idea to stay offline for a week or so.

We welcome you to share your stories of early purchases with us in the comments thread below.

    I got it early at a Toys R Us in Virginia. Checked the K-Mart here and nothing. The TRU only had regular editions as well...

    I don't think anyone is gonna get banned. We paid for the game legit.

    I call "bullshit" on all of you who claim to have bought it early. If you really have it, prove it. Make us a complete list of all the maps, weapons, equipment, vehicles, & armor permutations. Otherwise, shut the hell up.

    My brother texted me saying he got it from K-Mart, but nothing else. He didn't send any pics and he is probably working right now. I looked this up because I knew he probably heard of it on the internet. He is good at finding the stupidest employees and getting games as soon as they come in stock. He got a Best Buy to put out copies of Stranglehold a week and a half before it was out.
