Halo fans descended on London’s Westfield shopping centre last night to be among the first to buy a copy of Halo: Reach. People began arriving as early as 5:45 a.m. yesterday at retailer GAME’s midnight launch, with many fans dressing up to mark the occasion. Check out the images below to see how it went down.

Fans began queuing at 5:45 a.m. for a piece of that sweet Halo: Reach action.

Halo: Reach launches in the UK today with very high expectations. Halo 3 was the largest product launch in entertainment history when it was released in 2007. However, it was surpassed in 2008 by Grand Theft Auto IV and in 2009 by Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, although it should be noted that these were multiplatform releases. There are no sales figures for Reach as yet, but we will see how it fares in the UK chart when the top 40 is announced on Monday.

Halo: Reach fans hand over their cash at the stroke of midnight.

Halo: Reach Legendary Editions line the shelves of Game.

Looks like a great game and im going to buy it soon, the normal copy. I think everyone that bought the legendary edition is insane, it's just way way wayyyyyyyy too expensive. Hope everyone that bought it enjoys it though.
