Halo 3 gets its game on two weeks early on eBay Australia

Halo 3 will be the biggest launch for the videogame industry yet. With already more than 1 million pre-orders for the title, Microsoft looking to break Halo 2’s record of $125 million of day-one sales. But what if day-one, set for September 25, was too far away?

Someone with an early retail copy of Halo 3 knew that there are millions of Xbox 360 owners dying to get their hands on the game as soon as possible, and looked to fulfill someone’s dreams via an eBay auction.

Found on eBay Australia is an auction promising Halo 3 – “the real deal” – as available immediately. Some may cry hoax, but the seller posted convincing photographs of both a sealed copy of the game along with another picture showing the complete, opened package with disc.

For such a hot item, one would expect a considerable bidding war for the chance to play Halo 3 two weeks in advance of official release – but interestingly, the seller set a limit for his auction with the “Buy It Now” option at AU$149 (around $124). Needless to say, the item was snatched up in less than a day.
