Halo 2 For Sale Early?

According to posts on Gaming Age, the final box copy of Halo 2 is now in the hands of a few fortunate gamers. Meijer, a retail chain in Kentucky, has apparently begun selling copies of Halo 2 early, despite the very real potential of a lawsuit from Microsoft. Photographs have appeared on Gaming Age and other message boards showing gamers with opened box copies in their Xboxes. Yesterday saw a Wal-Mart receipt from Alberta Canada which appeared to prove Halo 2 was selling early. However, this receipt was quickly debunked and proven to be false. Unfortunately, it appears today’s rumored early release is indeed accurate. Stores selling any product prior to its street date are subject to lawsuit. Though Microsoft has not commented on reports of early sales, the Washington-based company is aware of the rumors and is investigating. Those who purchase a copy of Halo 2 early should not worry. It is the sellers responsibility to the respect the street date and so long as a buy makes a legitimate purchase, it is the seller who is at fault. History has shown that when one store breaks street date, others follow. However, this does not seem likely to be the case for Halo 2 as Microsoft is actually treating the release more seriously than the launch of a console.
