Thousands of gamers here turned up in full force at the Funan DigitaLife Mall today to be among the firsts in the world to get their hands on the latest version of the hit Halo series.

In pole position was Mr Jehangir Shaik Aziz, 19, who starting his queuing quest of glory from 7am yesterday. The Singapore Institute of Management student looked energetic even after the 30-hour wait as he had slept overnight on the floor outside the mall.

For being first, the die-hard Halo fan, who has played all previous six versions of the game - Halo, Halo 2, Halo 3, Halo ODST, Halo Wars and Halo Reach - he walked away with an additional limited edition Halo 4 poster and a $100 miniature statue of Master Chief, Halo's main protagonist.

Despite being the first in line, Jehangir will not be the first to play, as the Singapore Institute of Management student needed to rush off for his classes after collecting his Halo 4 limited edition game. His siblings will get to play the game ahead of him instead.
