At least I still got my preorder from Newegg for the regular edition for $12 off of retail, no tax plus free ship. Might cancel that too thinking this game might be $29.99 by BF.


Lol @ thinking Halo 4 will be $30 by BF. :roll:

$35 isn't much different, and it has an extremely good chance of hitting that price, just like MS big game every year for the last several.


39.99$ best we're gonna see.

Skyrim or MW3 didn't have any BF sales last year and I imagine the same will be for BLOPS 2 and Halo

Edit: nor did Halo CEA I believe

Halo CEA did have a sale. So did Gears 3, $35 at BB. Same with Fable 3 the year before, $35. They have also had most new release Kinect games cheap for BF. Microsoft as a whole has been extremely aggressive in BF sales, with the biggest discounts happening at BB and Walmart.


But all of those games weren't released in middish-mid November. The only big name game that did have a sale that was released in November was uncharted 3 I believe and that was released on the 1st day of Nov.

Where did halo ce have a sale? I can't remember seeing it on BF, maybe $5 off but not a huge sale.

Yup, thats how I scored my Halo Anniversary last year, $15 at the MSFT Store along with Dance Central 2 and Kinect Sports Season 2. Never will forget how it was about 10am and the post popped up on CAG. I begged my wife to let me make the 30 minute drive to the Houston Galleria to pick them up. To this day I still think I only played 5 minutes of it :lol:

I remember it last year cause I was so broke I couldn't even afford that (college kid who had to make rent) and I kept hoping Amazon would match cause I had credit there but I don't think they ever did

So is it safe to speculate that Halo 4 will be on sale at the Microsoft Store on Black Friday? I'm hoping to use the $25 credit for it and land it for a heavier discount.

IDK, i mean Halo Anniversary was a quick cash-in fed by nostalgia. Halo 4 is the most expensive Halo game ever made or so its been said. I don't think it will be on sale anywhere for Black Friday. Wouldn't even have been a full 30 days since release, which is usually the time frame to put stuff on sale. Could be wrong. Maybe some place will discount it $10, but not very much..

It's just a thought, you never know because video game retail sales are down this year. Hell, lots of retail sales are down this year. MS could do something with this to stir up BF sales and lots of folks would respond. I wouldn't put it past a retailer like BB or WM to have a discount on Halo 4 come BF. Might not go down to $29.99 but even at $39.99 it would be a good deal.

And to be clear, i'm not saying "All games are cheap on BF". I'm specifically talking about MS big releases each year. Maybe it will be different this year, but Reach, Fable 3 and Gears 3 tells me it could definitely be $35.

And yea, obviously Blops 2 won't have any deep discount, the newest COD never has. They usually just do tons of $10-$20 deals for several older CODs.


What's the difference between Halo 4 being $35 and not Blops 2? Look, I know the value of games degrade depending on their popularity but big titles like Halo 4 and Blops definitely won't drop in price, especially in the same month that it is launched (even for black friday).

Think about it, these are titles that DON'T need sales because people are gonna buy them regardless. Christmas shopping time comes around and kids will be begging for them under their tree. The stores probably arent in a rush to clear their stock with black friday sales.

I miss ce with helmets why do people hate on that ce content so much. I rather have a mini helmet over all this le content. There gonna make so much $ cause this is really digital junk and cost so little for them to do. Just saddens me on this money grab bs.


that was an amazing LE i loved it lol.

that said after watching that video this LE is just flat out terrible. for 100 dollars it really is a POS. a poster, a booklet thing and case? the rest is just DLC.

i have this game preordered but i may cancel(pains me to say this LE does not look worth it) and given i have the wii u coming out soon and this LE looks like crap its a perfect excuse to avoid splurging an extra 100 dollars especially since there will be no shortages of halo 4 really. or at the very least buy the regular edition of it but i may wait on that even.

I'm 51/49 on buying the halo console - someone convince which way to go. Help.

I have the LE game preordered - I still think I'm keeping it even after the unboxing was a little underwhelming.

Seems like you have cash to burn. Personally, I don't cash but I'd do the following assuming I had $200~ to blow.

Get the Halo Console for $350. Sell 1 of the exclusive controllors for $60-75. Sell that FOTUS armor or whatever it is for $50. Sell your LE for $35 profit on ebay. Total for console after selling your stuff comes to... $205 ~ give or take $15.

If you sell your preorder bonus, you might make more. Good luck!

Perfect Scores or Near Perfect Scores from every review. Even a few of the more critical ones.
Can't wait to find out for myself.

LE seems like a great deal now. Game, Map Packs, The live action mini series, goodies.
Halo delivers again.

What? How do the reviews have any impact on the LE.

I'm more likely to buy the LE of a game that gets great reviews over crappy ones
