If you're one of the people who don't understand why this is bad and extremely unprofessional (or worse, one of the ones who actually admitted they thought it was kind of funny) then you're probably just as bad as the guy.
For the record, in reference to your caption about buying from Amazon: like your story, this obviously varies from person to person, but I preordered it with next-day shipping from Amazon so I could get it as soon as it came out. Fast-forward to now, where I'm still waiting for it to arrive and it's been supposedly "out for delivery" in my town for the last 3 days.
Um even if Jeff ever said in the past that this game was more like ODST 2, he's certainly changed his mind now. Have you not noticed/heard the multiple times he's called this the "true successor to Halo 3"? That's literally the opposite of what you seem to believe he said.
