Hope it's in-store as well, gives me a chance to use my gift cards from their shooter promo last year. Hell, hope there's a launch party too. Thanks for the heads up, rococo.

I really hope another store PMs this deal. Does the MS store do release date delivery?

Promo code may only be used for future online purchase and expires on 12/31/2012.


Game releases on Nov 6. Promo code is sent within 10 days so Nov 16th at the latest. And code expires in Dec 2012?!?!?!

$25 is a lot, but there isn't enough time to use it on a good deal.

True but I am taking it as within 10 days before release date, if that helps.

I think you're taking it the wrong way. No way they're sending it before the release day.

My friend and his gf might like this deal since I know they're both going to want this game. I wish they had like some faster shipping option like release day shipping.

Definitely worth it if you can go to a store nearby. Their black Friday deals are usually pretty solid, last year halo cea was $20 (it had come out a month earlier) and kinect sports s1+2 were $15

they had online deals which were decent but not amazing

@johnoralex
if you can find a print out of Microsoft store stating the $25 credit you can try geting the limited in store
Also you could try pm'ing it for limited at best buy normally pretty good about giving credit on pm's. Once I even got them to take the credit off the actual game. (ie. another store was giving $10 credit, he let me take $10 off the cost of the game on launch day)

Not a bad deal, but I think I'm gonna wait to see if Amazon or Newegg does some kind of deal. Although highly doubt anything will be promo'd on the LE (which is the one I want).

Hmmm, not sure why the img tags don't work.

Not sure if the stores sell digital games/DLC like Gamestop does, but they do carry point cards.

@BNoyes You can use the $25 to buy an XBL Points to spend on games from XBLA or DLC. The Store also has select XBLA titles available for direct purchase (you buy a code for game) Just search store here: http://www.microsoft...goryID.57397900

I live in California and the image still doesn't show up despite the image tags being on the same line. I even removed the url tags the board automatically gives but it still doesn't work. Oh well.

Thanks for the info. It's tempting, but I think I'll pass on this offer. I'll just pick it up during a holiday sale. I've never been a Halo fan, but I really like what I saw in the new gameplay videos. Some of the gameplay seemed a little staged though, so I'll still wait and see.

Does anyone if they charge you right away for pre orders? Or are they similar to Amazon where they don't charge you until they ship the game? Thanks in advance.

A credit card is required for pre-order, but your card will not be charged until your order is shipped or the product is made available for download. Note that we can't charge your card and complete your order if your card expires between the date you pre-ordered the item and the date the item becomes available. Please ensure that your billing and contact information is current at all times.
