Halo 3 to Drop This Weekend?

Alright take this one with about a 400-pound grain of salt, but word on the street is that Halo 3 could find its way on shelves within the next seven days. The launch would strategically coincide with the release of the PlayStation 3.

Indeed, Bill Gates was quoted last year saying something to the effect that launching Halo 3 close to the PS3 launch would be perfect because it would divert consumers from the new Sony system. Microsoft later became sketchy on confirming that fact though. Could it be that it was simply trying to mask its plan? Could Halo 3 really be good to go?

The rumor comes from a person who states that Halo 3 will be available at some retailers this weekend and everywhere by next Tuesday. Who knows if it’s true, but I guess we’ll see in a week.
