Just got back from my local Walmart here in Columbus, OH and they seem to be selling the HW:Platinum Edition early, (Release Date: 02/23/10) with extra DL included (in edition to the extra content). When I asked if they would price match the Microcenter deal, they said it couldn't be an add off the web. So, when I looked in the game case, their was the the orginal released game, next to the Platinum Edition of HW. Both versions were clearly marked $19.96. It rang up as $29.99, but they gave me the 19.96 marked price. I'm not sure if it was just this location, but it appears they are releasing the title early. And at $19.96, I couldn't pass it up. So check your local Walmart and see if you had the same luck as I did.

The Walmarts around here also have it (Clarence, NY | Store #2355; Batavia, NY | Store #2088), but the PH version w/extra goes for $29.96, the older version goes for $19.96.

Wait, is the lint remover bundled with Halo wars or do I have to pick that up separately ... this will really make or break the deal for me.

There was a sign that said Halo Wars: $19.99 (or $19.96) and beside it was both versions, PH and non-PH. I grabbed the non-PH.

I got a regular one for 19.99 from walmart last week, arrived today with a large gash in the front (looks like it happened before packaging...) so I'm going to a local store tonight to exchange for a PH version.... And yeah the PH here is 29.99

And by doing so, you got the version without all of the DLC included on the disc. Congrats. It rang up correctly because you purchased the non-PH one.

Is the DLC on a seperate disk or is it download codes you have to redeem?

See this at my Wal Mart too, already have it, but great price for a good game. Also, it IS 19.96 for the PH version, they don't even have the normal at my store.

I just read the back of the case and it says both 2 Packs are included, and 100+ in extra achievement points (If you care). A $20 value, pulse, it includes an additional 4 maps and 3 gameplay modes, not included with the packs releases. But, it appears, unfortunately, that the extra content is NOT on the disk and it must be downloaded through xbox live. Although, I would much rather have all of the new content on the disk, so when I sell the game, it's new owner gets the new content as well,it's still a great value.

Sorry but that doesn't answer my question. I need someone who's bought the game to say if it's like the Gears of War 2 GotY/RE 5 Gold releases that have paper codes you have to redeem on XBox Live, or is it like the Mass Effect 1/Oblivion-Fallout 3 GotY releases that have the DLC on a physical disk.

Just because the sign is next to both versions, doesn't mean it's for the PH version that regularly retails for $29.99. Several people are reporting that the PH version rings up for more, and even the OP himself had to do a price override to get the $19.96 price.

Just called my local Wal-Mart (Millersburg, OH) and they didn't even have Halo Wars at all. So for whoever thought this was YMMV or just Ohio only, this might throw the theory off a little bit. Then again, Millersburg has a pretty shitty Wal-Mart, too.

I asked that question a while ago and I was told that it's redeemable codes and not DLC on a disc. (Which was what I was hoping for.)

So is the DLC like extra story line based modes or multiplayer only?

Saw the Platinum Hits at Target for $19.99, maybe the regular version was supposed to be there? Target and Amazon both have the regular version for $19.99. Target does not have a listing for Platinum Hits version; however, Amazon has the Platinum Hits version for $29.99. Walmart only has one listing as well....

Was the DLC included in the PH version originally from the LE version?
