70 HMV stores will open tonight across the UK to welcome the arrival of Xbox 360 game Halo: Reach.
HMV's flagship Oxford Street London store will be among them. There's no mention of face-painting or a dressing-up competition (which doesn't mean you shouldn't).
Copies of Halo: Reach will sell from one minute past midnight.
Eurogamer's Halo: Reach review was published early on Sunday morning.
