man, you guys are geting my spirits down. Own all the LE's for this series and was looking forward to getting this, but its supposed to be sh*t? The wife has banned all future video game purchases b/c I was out of control. I really fought for this and got approval to buy over BLOPS 2 Hardened edition, now I'm not sure if I even want it..

Get standard... My deciding factor is non le season pass comes with the goodies but le season pass no? WTH?

Seems like it, who knows with all these cancellations though. Chances are you'll see some in-store and online after release.

What is weird is if you search for Halo 4 Limited Edition on NE it says "Sold Out" next to the product, it isn't until you actually visit the product page itself that it allows you to place a Pre-order.

I wonder if there is actually a place that you can see how many limited editions were made in total. I know they released a statement saying that the limited edition of this game will be significantly less than any other Halo game released to date, guess it would be nice to know how many that actually is, lol..

Also, Newegg is now the third major retailer to have the LE back in stock after selling out, which could mean they recieved a second shipment or perhaps they are re-listing all their cancelled orders. Either way still a chance for a few people to grab it they want it.

So David Ellis just posted on Twitter that the LE Season Pass DOES come with the two helmets and emblem you get for also buying it separately now.

I just cancelled my LE pre-order like 5 hours ago, I am actually kind of pissed. We had explicit confirmation from bsangel that the LE Season Pass did not come with that content, now it does after a bunch of people have cancelled their orders and will probably have a very hard to re-ordering, if at all. Fucking great.

If you watch the unboxing video at IGN, there seems to be numbers on the Limited Edition cases. Ryan McCaffrey mentions it, but he wasn't sure if they were simply random numbers, or actual numbers identifying the Limited Editions as limited. He said that the Limited Edition copies IGN received all had different numbers to them, so maybe it actually means something?

In the video, the numbers had at least 6 digits, so there's potential for a large number of them.

Here's the video;

He mentions it around 40 seconds in.

This seems more like Microsoft with poor marketing and exclusives planning. I genuinely think 343i is embarrassed with how this is being handled, judging by bsangel's initial response to fans.

Finally. We get confirmation that yes indeed, the LE War Games Map Pass will also get the Strider/Scanner helmets and the falcon emblem. I was going to switch my LE preorder to standard this weekend when I went to Best Buy, but with this, I think I'll stick with it.

Well that figures. I just cancelled my orders at Newegg yesterday. Not even going to bother trying to get it now. If my luck is any indication you should probably order the Assassins Creed 3 LE before that disappears as well.

Yea but you have to think 343i has enough involvement that they know what's going on. Honestly this seems like a cop out LE that MS threw together because they knew people would buy it regardless of what it actually contained. Is there really anything in this LE that anyone would consider collectible at all? Even limited editions that were over done have cool things in them that are worthy of being displayed. Bioshock 1 had the Big Daddy figure (granted it was a fiasco); Bioshock 2 had the score, the original games score on a sweet vinyl, 3 posters, and a very nice box; Halo Reach had Halseys journal.

For Halo 4 we get a steelbook of questionable looking quality, some pieces of paper and a half assed poster. I would of been fine with the Steelbook alone if it were of higher quality, and maybe it will be. But as of right now this whole thing looks like a waste. Frankly if I felt like dealing with the hassle I would throw my pre order on Ebay and make my money back.

If 343 was truly embarrassed they would be taking some sort of step to make it right. Instead they are just sitting on their thumbs. They put plenty of work into the console and the controllers. The controller is awesome.

So this is an obvious reaction to 343 screwing this LE up. Bravo 343. lol ffs.

Pretty much this. Its the publishers that do preorder bonus, LE crap, etc, etc. while the developer just makes the game... And gets dragged through the mud for the publisher's decisions.

Anyhow, I canceled a few days ago... I regret it on some level but not at the same time. I would like the content but with how this has all been going I'm glad to not be giving MS any extra money.

Does BB generally let you preorder online up until the last day on standard editions? I haven't pre-ordered from them in a while, so I don't recall.

It sounds like a silly question, but I don't know if they have a cut-off date because of the promo.

You should be fine... I know Forza Horizon still had the preorder DLC attached to it the day of release.

Agreed, I didn't notice the little designs on the inside of the case, while subtle it definitely makes the overall package look a lot nicer.

Updated OP, Newegg is allowing you to place Pre-orders again. Very much like last time these came in stock on Newegg, the overview search page claims the item is out of stock, yet when you go into the actual product page you can add the item to cart and check out with it.

"Sold out" and "OOS", I must have just missed it.
