thanks to those who were able to make it to the pre-launch event for halo 3 in phoenix! i hope everyone had a great time being the first in the valley (of the sun) to play the halo 3 game and rock out to some guitar hero. we had about 55 people for the event plus some staffers. i know the building access was a pain in the arse, so i appreciated your patience getting in the building.
we gave away 5 xbox 360 elites, 3 copies of halo 3, guitar hero set, halo 3 watches, flash drives, etc. everyone was able to walk away with at least a halo 3 t-shirt as well! special thanks to mcfarlane toys for donating some items to give away to winners as well!
(rob bagby rockin' out in guitar hero -- aren't you supposed to stand?)
for those who didn't know, this was one of about 14 events happening across the country. i'm sure there will be a lot more blogging/pictures/etc today, but you can check out some of the pictures as well from the silicon valley event, which was the largest with over 500+ people in attendance.
