The "vast and mysterious alien object to land at QEII Square, Auckland." is a huge 1-tonne block of ice in Queen Elizabeth Square, containing 50 discs frozen within the ice.
This gigantic ice cube is there until 10am today (run!) and you can 'play' the Halo 3 Ice Block Buster and try to free the discs as the ice melts, aided by hot water pistols. Prizes to be won include Samsung 40" LCD TVs, Xbox 360 games consoles and Halo 3 games.
Gamers Nicole Sinclair and Ryan Marsden, both 19, were the first people in the world to receive a copy of the game at the worldwide premiere launch event held in Auckland. Stores across the country also opened their doors at midnight to meet demand from gamers.
