Halo: Reach is almost hear and set to launch this September 14, 2010 and while there have been lots of complaints about Reach’s launch date; I feel that Halo: Reach’s release date is absolutely perfect. Following are the 4 best things about Halo: Reach’s launch date.
School is in
Halo: Reach may just be the best Halo game ever, but if history has taught us anything, it’s that no matter how awesome a Halo game is, it can always be ruined by one thing: kids. Whiny voices, aggressive playing, strategy lacking, and downright immature children love Halo games and even though Halo: Reach is rated a Mature game, a good majority of the Halo community is made up of prepubescent children. The Halo: Reach release date is excellent because it will be launched on a Tuesday – when children are in school – and will give Reach’s mature community four days before it is overtaken by children.
It will help to curb overcrowded gaming stores
Bungie did its fans a favor by not releasing Halo: Reach during the weekend or on a Friday. Fridays and weekends will only result in overcrowded gaming stores, outdoor release camping, and quicker shortage of Halo: Reach games. By launching Halo: Reach on a Tuesday, Bungie has given gamers the opportunity to file in day after day leading up to the weekends – which will help control the flow of traffic so that it’ll be less chaotic.
Reach’s launch will give gaming retailers time to restock
In addition to controlling the chaotic flow that would have been a Halo: Reach launch weekend, releasing Halo: Reach to the gaming world on Tuesday September 14, 2010 will also allow video game stores to re-up on Halo games before the weekend before the weekend begins – making Halo: Reach available to more gamers by Halo: Reach’s first big weekend.
It’ll leave ample time to prepare for the weekend
If you’ll be busy with school or work on 09/14/2010, don’t fret it; you’ll have just enough time to plan the perfect Halo: Reach weekend. Halo: Reach will launch 4 days before the weekend starts and that’s just enough time to stock up on Mountain Dew, upgrade your entertainment system, schedule a Halo: Reach party at your home, and cancel anything else that might come up during Halo: Reach’s launch weekend.
