First post! Don't flame if the deal's already out there. I didn't go for it, just because I already have Halo Wars. Extra DLC included (though it's Halo 3 maps? that part confuses me, oh well), free shipping too. Oh and you get fire on your warthogs I think, lol.

Hopefully it helps out a few people!

Thanks op but unfortunately the value in this is not much now that the Platinum Hits version is out. (Full disclosure I got this on clearance @ Target for $60 1 month after its release @ $80.) The PH version has the multiplayer DLC for free ($20 value) and the Halo 3 maps with the collector's edition aren't worth much since they're on the second disk of the ODST package, or can be purchased for $10 on the Marketplace (the maps were exclusive to the Halo Wars CE for 1 month.)

Only thing this is good for is if you have no desire to do multiplayer and want the awesome steeltin and collectibles.

That sounds like me. 8-) (I like my collectibles, but I could care less about multiplayer)

I got this when it was $30 at dell.com. It's a cool looking set, but it's been in my backlog for far too long. (and it's probably going to stay there for awhile since I'm trying to finish up Tales of Vesperia before Final Fantasy XIII comes out... Then there's Sakura Wars at the end of the month)

I don't think this needs its own thread, so Halo Wars (Standard) $14.99 @ Microcenter [Microcenter had it for $9.99 from 2.19-2.21, so I would guess it's going to happen again]

Thanks OP... I love deals on CEs.

I'm torn between my dislike of Halo and my love of Collector's Editions... lol. I'd definitely bite at $20, but I'm on the fence here.

The Steelbook case this comes with is actually pretty nice ... granted I sold mine before the value kind of bottomed out, but it was a really nice case. The comic book/ art book is alright .. nothing to write home about but yeah, the artwork on the case itself was sweet.

I had to bite, and i just happen to have money in my PP account. 29.99 with free shipping and no tax is pretty great to me.

Thanks OP!

Super find OP. I payed full price back when it released. It's a great item for Halo fans like myself, $30 is an awesome bargin.

Buy.com also has 4-7% BCB. Just go to the list of cashback stores and find Buy.com and click through.

Or for those that have promo credits at Amazon from recent purchases it is same price there.

Cool, thanks for the Amazon link. I like them vastly better than buy.com. This pushed me over the edge. :)

In all honesty man the only appeals of the damn thing when it launched for me was the Halo 3 maps and the steelbook. Now the maps are available on XBL as well as on the ODST Online Disc and the only appeal of it now is the awesome steelbook case.

The game is fun and all but just go with the $20 regular edition at Wal-Mart. :)
