Halo 3 Japanese Store Sell Out Shocker
Posted by XanTium | September 27 13:06 EST | News Category: Xbox360
From kotaku.com:

Stupid, stupid me. With all that crazy Halo 3 hype in Tokyo, I thought I could just waltz into a store at 6PM tonight and walk out with a copy of Halo 3.

See those little white cards with blue writing on those Halo 3 copies? That means "sold out." I actually was so not expecting this that it did not dawn on me that I should've asked the clerk how many copies were sold until I was driving home. Unwilling to admit defeat (c'mon this is Halo 3 in Japan!), I stopped by another totally tubular shop, which had Halo 3 copies coming out the whazoo. It even had imported versions!

looks like they still use the old school Toys 'R' Us style of buying games. Pick up a slip of paper and take it to the counter. Ahh.... the good 'ol days laugh.gif

WTF! Now Japan plays American First Person Shooters? No wait perhaps Microsoft figured out that 20 copies of Halo3 for all Japan would be enough but didn't expect that they should have sent 30 copies instead... LOL!

Anyways it's a good thing (eventhough not comparable to PS3 and Wii sales) that Halo3 is selling out overthere ...

Obviously SOME people over there bought 360s, and I think they ALL buy Halo 3. The 360 buyers knew what type of game the 360 is known for: FPS. So.....

Now we know that some ( two or three thousand ) japanese people dont really care where the game comes from, they just want to play the damn game.
