It's worth whatever extra for the collectors edition, the book and steelbook are awesome bonuses.

Funny thing is when this first came out the Mythic Map Pack code was selling on EBay for $40-$60 because it was exclusive to this CE for over a month. It wasn't available on Live until mid-April, and this came out the first week of March.

So besides the Mythic Map that is now on ODST what else is include in this that makes it a better deal from just getting the regular edition?

Im pretty sure the mythic map pack isn't on ODST. Halo Wars is an RTS not a shooter. So I would imagine that ODST wouldnt include Halo Wars maps. I may be wrong though.

In addition to including the standard retail version of Halo Wars , this Collector's Edition includes:

  • The Mythic Map Pack from Bungie with three new Halo 3 multiplayer maps: Assembly, Orbital, and Sandbox.
  • Halo Wars: Genesis, a graphic novel by Phil Noto, Graeme Devine, and Eric Nylund that follows the Spirit of Fire and examines the very first UNSC military campaign against the Covenant
  • Access to the Covenant Honor Guard Wraith in-game vehicle
  • Six Leader Cards representing Leaders' with access to elite skills
  • A Spirit of Fire Patch for identifying yourself as a real crew member

I would highly recomend this game. I got the reglar edition when it came out. Lots of fun.

the Mythic map pack is for Halo 3 online and was included on the 2nd disk of ODST, doesnt seem as good as deal now

O I had no idea. I thought it was maps for Halo Wars. The game is good but you can probably find the regular edition used or on sale for much cheaper.

Amazon had this for $30 Lightning deal in August, just saying. Usually if you catch them you can get your best deal on Limited/etc. editions there. This might have had my ECA discount applied at the time it looks like but it still beats $40.
