Halo 3 to launch in May 2006 after all?

Over at Joystiq they are reporting that Halo 3 may be reaching store shelves faster than the original and frustrating estimate of 2007. According to the US retailer Best Buy, the game is set to go on sale in May 2006.

Our Take: The only catch? Can you trust Best Buy to accurately estimate a game release? I canít trust them to point me to the digital camera section. However, if you want to talk competition and the whole Xbox 360 vs. the Playstation 3, you can bet it would be wise for Microsoft to light a bonfire under the Halo 3 programmers and roll that game out as a direct hit against the PS3.
