Nice to see Microsoft setting up our youth to take the battlefield in Iraq. You like video games? How about joining an unjust war, it's just like a real game! Accept there are no continues or restarts. Guess you gotta do what u gotta do when enrollment is down.

I'd laugh if Halo 3 was too over hyped and Halo 3 was a crap game lol

What a lovely little Public Relations effort for M$.... 300 to distribute among how many tens of thousands of soldiers. Give me a break.

I would agree with you, although I do (and don't at times as well) support the war, I always support the troops. On the Zune topic, cool at least they will be able to listen to some music without their MP3 players being destroyed.

I think the Halo 360 and zune looks stupid. Infact i'd never get a peice of hardware that is personalized for another movie,game,etc
Like the green N64 for Donkey Kong 64. That is a game that was only played for like a month before people shelved it, so there's no point in getting a system just for it

Well at least Microsoft is giving something back to the young men and women putting their lives on the line for their country.
