It seems as though street dates aren’t all that EB Games is breaking these days. Just today they became the first place online to grab some screenshots of the upcoming Halo: Reach title.

More hype for the reveal of Halo Reach

I predict all Halo fans especially those looking forward to Halo Reach will be frothing at the mouth after they read the comments Geoff Keighley made about the game.
