I was the 70th person in Layton to pick up my copy of "Halo 2" tonight. Approximately 300 of the 2,000 pre-orders showed up between 9 and midnight to get their copies.
That being said, it was the most mindbogglingly boring time I've ever had. Between security guards yelling at people to stay in a single file line for 3+ hours and Hot-Dog-On-A-Stick employees trying to talk people waiting in line into playing a game of Hot-Dog-Twister, it was horrid.
I'm not doing this for "Half-Life 2" next week...no way in Hell.
