So after reading this I'm probably going to downgrade my LE preorder too. Pretty weak debut by 343.

Maybe I'll put the saved money towards upgrading my Bioshock Infinite preorder.


LOL pretty weak debut? Why don't you just wait for the game, not the marketing, before passing judgement on 343.

I can see the fotus armor selling on eBay but not LE DLC. Wouldn't be surpised if it hits ~$100 like the flaming helmet did.

The complaints people have now (which have arisen after it was announced)


That's a really good summary... Depressing one too. I'm not sure what I'll do now but I'm leaning towards a downgrade but I'm wondering a few things:

1) Does anyone know if all the DLC items are one code or are they separated... (Sort of wondering if I can piecemeal it out and make the LE the good buy it was before.)

2) It seems like the Microsoft Store has the best deal on the normal version... Anyone know how good they are with shipping and whatnot?

Defensive much? If you actually read his post instead of getting so enraged over one line you might have noticed that he was talking about how weak the limited edition seems to be, not about the actual game quality. You can retract your claws and go back to scouring the forums for any other sign of somebody saying anything even remotely negative about your Halo 4.

This. I'm still very excited for Halo 4, I'm just less then impressed by the contents of the limited edition. They're asking $40 more and offering very little.

One of the big detractors for me is also finding out that the Forward Unto Dawn is only a digital copy. I'd rather spend the extra few bucks and get it on blu-ray. I'll probably just hold my LE preorder until the midnight launch though, and downgrade at the counter.

Heard it's not even a download, just a stream on Waypoint. I made a mistake at Best Buy and had to cancel all my pre orders. I'm glad I forgot to repreorder this. I rather pre order the standard at Best Buy and get the season pass for $5.

Thanks for all the insight on the differences. I didn't follow the details that closely. I'll probably just grab the standard at BB and not really be bummed if I miss out on the CE.

Still gunna get the LE. Got $50 in GS gift cards so why not.

First, how can you claim prior non-existance to devalue a movement? I am sure the civil rights movement would love that. "Well, there was no movement to free the slaves before, so why is it relavent now?"

Deals for preordering would just be various skins depending on which retailer you preorder from. Best Buy had a poster but I'm pretty OoS. I don't think there are any release week deals yet because the ads aren't out yet.

The cheapest it's been was $45 at Newegg or $12 off at Newegg. Newegg might run another $12 off within the time frame of now until release. Only time will tell.

Let's not forget about the $20 RZ cert from best buy.

GameStop is out of stock again, but Wal-Mart has it back in stock for Ship-to-home. Not exactly sure if you can do ship-to-store at this point, but for those very few that may still want to pre-order it here is your chance.

Kotaku unboxed both the console and limited edition. The LE looks not that great but I'm still getting it and Halo FUD is a code like people say it is.

Guy got his early and did an unboxing.

IGN also posted an unboxing. After watching it, I think I'm going to cancel the LE pre-order I have at Amazon. Doesn't seem worth it since you get the Specializations with the SE, FUD is a stream, the LE skin is also available in the SE, and the fact that the LE season pass doesn't come with the 2 extra helmets. The paper things in the LE also don't do anything for me. IMO, Halo Reach's Legendary/Limited editions were much better. I might as well save $15 by buying the Season Pass separately + get the extra helmet DLC and then spend $15 on the FUD blu-ray.

It's not all that impressive, but since I'll get all the maps anyway, I'd basically be paying $10 or $15 extra for a steel case, which is fine by me. Not to mention, I wouldn't be surprised if the avatar/armor codes included go for $20 or so a piece on eBay.

With Reach, I sold my flaming helmet code for around $50 if I'm not mistaken. Just ridiculous.

That steelcase looks way different than the pictures. I thought it was gonna be a silver/metallic steelbook with very visible grooves in it. It just looks like a plain white steelbook.

The MS Store shipping is hit or miss. I preordered Sesame Street and got it release date but when I preordered Borderlands 2, it arrived 5 days later. So it is hit or miss. The sooner you preorder though, the higher the likely hood you receive it release date. Hope that helps. I preordered my copy from MS. I am flipping it for a loss on ebay but plan on using that $25 coupon on another copy of Halo 4 for a cheaper price. I don't mind the wait.
