UK electrical store Comet appeared to be selling limited edition copies of Halo 3 right now for £99.99. We were suspicious.
First we spoke to and confirmed with a Comet spokesperson that Halo 3 was definitely on sale via its website.
They first told us that there were plenty of copies in its warehouse and that copies ordered today would be delivered by Thursday. But it seems Comet has quickly realised its mistake.
Halo 3 "hasn't come into stock yet" said a Comet employee, who hastily called us after we slipped our order into the site.
"We're definitely not breaking the street date", promised the spokesperson, who said that Microsoft is very protective of the street date (which is September 26, you should already know).
They went on to say that it was just a mistake and that they would be contacting the department that runs the website to rectify the situation.
Oh well, it was all very exciting for a few minutes on what is usually a boring Monday.
