This is a very simple want, and I expect ALL Halo fans to chime in in support of this one!
I am one of MILLIONS of gamers around the world that are eagerly awaiting November's release of Halo 4.
As such, my Xbox 360 Dashboard is currently displaying the Halo 4 Concept Art Premium Theme and my Avatar is currently riding around in the Halo 4 Warthog that's now available for Xbox Avatars. And I am thankful to Microsoft and/or 343 Industries for making those items available. :-)
However... my Avatar is still sporting the Master Chief's old, outdated Mjolnir Mark V Armor from Halo: Combat Evolved Anniversary Edition because that's the only Master Chief Avatar Armor that's currently available... or so I thought.
I have just learned that the Halo 4 Master Chief Avatar Armor IS available, but Microsoft and/or 343 Industries are doing what was previously done with the Halo Reach Noble 6 Avatar Helmet: They are ONLY making the download codes available to attendees of Microsoft and/or Halo panels at selected conventions, such as the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3 for short) and the just-concluded San Diego Comic Con/Comic Con International.
THIS IS SIMPLY UNACCEPTABLE! Master Chief is an ICON. He is the character that put Microsoft's Xbox on the MAP and helped the 2 systems become so successful that the Xbox 360 is now, in 2012, the Number 1 Video Game System in the World! This fact was proudly announced by Microsoft at their E3 presentation. Therefore, to limit the distribution of this Avatar Armor to only a select few that can afford to spend hundreds of dollars to fly halfway around the world to a convention is the height of rudeness and arrogance! ALL Halo 4 fans deserve to have access to this item without having to pay the scalper prices on the Bay of E!
This is the simplest of requests I'm making. Please add Master Chief's new suit of armor to the Halo 4 Avatar selection so that all can have access to it. Do it now, if not sooner!
All Halo fans that also would like to be able to purchase this Avatar Armor, please chime in here in support of this. :-)
