There's a new media king, only he isn't on the radio or in the movies. His name? Master Chief. His role: Interstellar soldier and star of "Halo 2," one of the most anticipated video games ever.

Across the nation, fans lined up for hours at some 7,000 planned "midnight madness" events Tuesday to get first crack at the $50 sequel from Microsoft Corp.

Miguel Chavez, a 36-year-old father of two boys, waited about 10 hours at a Toys "R" Us in New York City's Times Square to buy his copy of the game. He took along an Xbox console and a projection system so they could play the original "Halo: Combat Evolved" to pass the time.

Fans flock to buy sci-fi epic ``Halo 2''
