Aussie Halo Players get lucky - sort of
Wow - THIS is gonna cause problems, I can tell. Looks like EB Games Australia might have made a pretty big mistake; they're selling the Halo 2 Maptacular Map Pack NOW - you can buy the DVD in stores. (It's not supposed to be on sale before July 5.) However, they emailed customers with this info:

"...Customers will not be able to access live with this title before the 7th of July. If a customers tries to access live before the 7th of July there account will be disabled. We apologize for the late notice on this information but we have just been notified."

Ouch - how many Australian accounts do you think will get disabled by folks who didn't get (or didn't read) this email? Thanks to BeardedFerret, who wrote to us with the DVD in his hot little hands - and who is looking forward to some lan play with these maps in the next week. Update: I misunderstood BeardedFerret's first note; the email went only to EB Games stores in Australia, not to customers; it was information for store personnel only. (BeardedFerret works in an EB Games store, which is how he saw it.) His store won't be displaying the Map Pack on shelves before the 5th, and only selling it to people who ask for it - but he's guessing that this will NOT be the case in most stores. Buyer beware!
