Halo 3

Legions of Master Chief fans can now mark their calendars for September 25. That's when "Halo 3," the newest sci-fi video game saga and the first specifically designed for Microsoft Corporation's Xbox 360 console, is expected to arrive on store shelves.The first-person shooter is the latest addition to the company's popular science fiction franchise in which an armor-clad human space soldier fights alien hordes in sprawling single and online multiplayer battles.Shane Kim, corporate vice president for Microsoft Game Studios, predicted sales would surpass those of "Halo 2," which the company claims reached USD 125 million within the first 24 hours in 2004."In terms of great exclusive content this is the biggest weapon that we have," he said.The announcement comes as a "beta," or test version, of "Halo 3" is being offered to consumers through June 6, allowing players to test out some of the game's multiplayer features ahead of schedule.The beta only shows the game's multiplayer online aspects, however. Details of the single-player story remain a secret, Kim said."Halo 3" will be available in three versions: a "standard" edition for USD 59.99, a "limited edition" that includes features about the making of the game for USD 69.99, and a USD 129.99 "legendary edition" that is packaged with a large metal helmet that looks like the one worn by the game's protagonist, Master Chief.
