Halo 5 UPDATE

Halo 5: Guardians isn’t out yet, but if you live in Italy you may have a chance of getting your copy early. One online retailer appears to be shipping the game now, so get it before they notice their mistake (if it is a mistake).

Tell Me About Games is reporting that the Italian game retailer Console Planet have started to ship Halo 5: Guardians to customers early, so if you want to play it now then there are no reasons to stop you ordering it and getting it. Some retailers often break release dates like this, but don’t advertise the fact to customers.

While Microsoft may not be happy that the game is releasing early at retailers like this, at least they are legitimate copies. With the hope that this will be one of the biggest releases for the holiday period, it will be interesting to see how well the game plays.

While the marketing for the game doesn’t really seem to have gone overboard in building up hype for the game, there are plenty of Halo 5 fans who are looking forward to the release. If retailers are sending out early copies, this may actually help with the games popularity, if there is a need for the game.

With impressive footage already been shown from the game, Halo 5: Guardians should arguably be one of the big games for the Xbox One that has struggle to have a “killer title” that’s a must buy. Could this be the one for Xbox One? It is one of their biggest exclusives, but with rise of the Tomb Raider releasing not long after Halo’s release could it steal some of its glory?
