The next game in the popular Halo series by Bungie and Microsoft Games is set to release tonight at midnight 9-14-10 at 12:01 am. Halo Reach is currently the most pre-ordered game in the world beating out Call of Duty Black Ops by 11 places. We will try to bring you coverage of launch events in our area so you can see whats going on if you aren’t there. With there being over 2 million beta testers on Xbox Live for Halo Reach I think its safe to assume that it will be a great turnout.
