It's hard to believe, but Halo Reach is only a week away. Millions of gamers will be getting their copies of the prequel to the one of the biggest selling and most popular video game trilogies of all time on September 14th, 2010. Many places are having a midnight launch - including two special launches in New York City at Best Buy in Times Square and in Seattle at the Experience Music Project near the Space Needle.
Kicking off the festivities today is a brand new 5 webisode series from Jeff and Lester - two character's made famous by NBC's Chuck. The webisode follows their exploits as they try to obtain a copy of Halo Reach while running from the law for blowing up the Buy More. You can watch the first episode by heading to TheWB.com.
Following the game's launch gamers will be able to have access to prizes, free themes, and several events in what's called "Invasion Week" on Xbox Live.
