Halo 3 - TV Ad - Are you ready to Finish the Fight?

If you haven't heard of Halo by now, where have you been?  I mean, come on, Halo 2 took $125 million at retail in it's first 24 hours!  OK, I suppose not everyone will have heard of it, but let me tell you, when Halo 3 launches for Xbox 360, you will hear about it, as it is going to be huge...

Now this picture was taken from the trailer unveiled at E3.  I'd recommend you take a look if you haven't seen it already.

Anyway, to the point of the post...the teaser TV advertisement will air in North America on the 4th of December, during ESPN Monday Night Football, whilst at the same time, being aired in Europe on Xbox.com.  So, for all you UK readers, that means staying awake until 2:15am on Tuesday 5th December, to watch the 60 second ad.

For those of you who struggle staying up, you can watch it on our very own Channel 4, on Friday 15th December, at 22:45.  How precise is that!  You'll also be able to download the ad using the Xbox Live Marketplace, so you can enjoy it in High Def on your shiny new Plasma screen....nice :-)

If you think the Gears of War trailer was impressive, get ready to see Master Chief as you have never seen him before...

On a side note, to celebrate the 5th anniversary of the release of the original Halo, Microsoft Game Studios and Bungie Studios, recently announced an exclusive hands-on experience with Halo 3 - an Xbox Live multiplayer public beta, the first of it's kind for the Halo franchise.  This really does represent a great opportunity for for gamers worldwide to help shape the development of Halo 3.  Keep your eyes peeled for an official start date for the trial, and I'll see you on there... (Gamertag: mattmcspirit) (original, I know!)

So, all that is left to say is...get ready to join Master Chief as he returns to finish the fight, bringing the epic conflict between the Covenant, the Flood and the entire human race to a dramatic, pulse-pounding climax...
