Great news for those looking to get the included Mythic Map Pack for Halo 3!

Apparently, they are also running the Regular Edition for $53.

i guess it's ok but if you get a different sku number then you're pretty much screwed on the return. :x

Without a receipt I would say yes. With a receipt.. it's sort of shady but I do it a lot. I'm about to pick up the copy I reserved at gamestop tomorrow and return my buy.com copy when I get it. I ordered it awhile back for sixty something, but they sent me an email the other day saying they were backordered.

Yeah, I placed an order back on the 5th of Feb, and I keep getting emails that they won't be able to fill the order. So buyer beware. Since they can't fill orders place a month ago, it is pretty shady to have it still listed.

68 bucks, hope the price comes down a little.

Ya thats really not much of a price drop but I guess it will get them some more sales and then hopefully they can be nice and give it to me for like 40$, that is a little more reasonable Posted Image

Don't forget search.live.com, for 1% to 5% cashback from buy.com. I'll be waiting, personally. Somewhat decent reviews usually mean a drop before the year is over, but the free map packs are tempting, hmm.

Mine shipped and it will be here the 5th. Maybe it has to do with your shipping speed? I just pre-ordered Friday, I believe.

My status is still "processing" but I got another email from them statsing that they are trying to fill the order and waiting on the manufacturer to get it in stock. Dammit, this really isnt a "limited" game. I went to Gamestop earlier and they had a ton. Picked one up and will return this one to GS when I get it. Had to do the same with Street Fighter 4. I will never pre-order stuff from them again.

Hey oyla10....what shipping did u choose? Cuz I pre-ordered like 1 month ago with free ship.

flex45, thanks for the expert review I know I should have waited for your detailed review. :P

Just got an e-mail saying mine shipped. Ordered 3/2.

After seeing all the ridiculous deals on the standard edition though ($40 at Game Daily :hot:) I'm really hoping that graphic novel is worth the extra scratch since I could really care less about the other fluff that comes with it. Yes, even the Mythic Map Pack; I can't remember the last time I played Halo 3.

O and this being my first post here I feel obliged to say that I think might be my new favorite site. I've found a ridiculous amount of good deals here the past few days. You folks are awesome :D

Flex I disagree with you, this game is going to be awesome. The skirmishes are a lot of fun on the demo already.

And emerald, I paid the 5.50 for 2 day shipping. I wish I would have done the free one, bought a local one and returned it like everyone else seems to be doing. Almost like paying $5 to not have to do that, ha. Oh well.
