I have to go with MS B&M store. Combine it with the $25 "bing-it-on challenge" voucher, I don't think anyone else can touch that deal.

I'm absolutely shocked the Halo 4 LE is preordered out. Is it pretty much gone everywhere?

I would nab it, as somebody mentioned that walmart has over preordered stuff like this before leading to canceled orders.

Hopefully best buy gets more limited editions before release. Everyone on the halo forums are all threatening to switching to stardard versions due to them not getting any exclusive DLC anymore lol

Wasn't it just the specializations that were already going to come out for standard editions? The other dlc in game stuff is still limited only I thought?

Oh, well that sucks but I'm keeping mine, I want the other bonuses that come with it anyway, I guess it would be nice if the console DLC did eventually come out as well, just because I'd like to get everything.

Yes but then that wouldn't be fair to the people who paid the $350 for the console

While I do agree with you in a sense, it would be nice if it was like a timed exclusive, they are already getting the console and those controllers that are special. I have the Halo Reach console myself so I love the Halo franchise, but I'm not gonna go and buy another console (I've had three 360s, original, elite, reach) just for some armor, I think it would be kinda neat if they eventually gave us the armor itself, but the camos/skins could stay exclusive, since that's still a little way to show off while still allowing everyone access to the armor itself at least. I know one of my buddies is buying the 360, but only because he wants Halo 4 and his system he has now finally gave out on him, the DLC will be something he used but he told me that it's not a huge factor to him. I definitely see your point though as I enjoy my flaming helmet in Reach, but they eventually gave the blue flames out as something that was the same but not the special version of it.

EDIT: More on topic, the Best Buy armor skin and helmet look really nice, along with the free poster I got and the $20 reward zone points that I'm getting with it probably make it the best deal for me, but as yuyak pointed out you can also get a great deal at a Microsoft Store, but I'm not near any of them.

The FOTUS armor looks cool. People are going to go crazy for that on ebay. I do find the unicorn emblem funny.

They should call the MS Store armor the "Target" armor. The best preorder armor is probably the Walmart one.

I see what you mean, I'm also getting the halo console because I need a new console so the armor is basically just an extra thing the way I see it. Still though, I like having the armor exclusive to console buyers, no offense. :) in the end I'm sure the LE buyers will get something exclusive as in the official Microsoft page it says you get exclusive armor so that should be considered false advertisement or something so I bet you all will end up with something.

Thanks Cheapy!

Anyway, I have 3 separate preorders right now, would appreciate any input here:

-Preordered at Newegg during one of the $44.99 sales
-Preordered at MS Store for $25 credit off next purchase (ie, $25 off 4000 MSP)
-Preordered at BB for the lithograph (not Unlocked though so take the RZ cert out of the equation)

Where should I keep it? Newegg or MS Store?

Unless something has changed at the Microsoft Store retail locations since last year, they still take $5 off the price when you preorder a game in store. So Halo 4 would be $55 with a $25 gift card. I know it doesn't help a lot of people because of the limited number of B&M locations, but it could help some.

I wish there were more than skins for in game bonuses, I couldn't care less about skins. A different weapon would've been nice.

That's pretty much how I feel.

If I do pre-order, it will be with Newegg. Might as well get it for as cheap as I can. None of these stupid skins seem worth paying an extra $12 for.

Anyone know the shipping that goes along with these deals? I'm assuming they will have stock before release date, so I'm hoping if I order from Newegg I get it the day it comes out.

from past experiences, youll probably get it 2-3 days after launch

if they sent it early it would be breaking street date technically, hence the option for next day or same day shipping

Thanks. Now it comes down to is it worth paying more to get it on release day, or wait and save money? Such is the life of a gamer.

New Egg charges tax in TN, but still a better deal than my Amazon Prime w/o tax. ~$6.45 cheaper.

New Egg = Has a shipping center in TN so they charge me tax, but my packages ALWAYS come slow-poke from California.

I paid more to get the game at midnight at Gamestop. I'd get the Amazon version for the orange armor and lower price, but this is one of those games that I have to own right away.

Does Newegg or Microsoft store charge you tax?
Is there anything coming out NOT for the :360: that you'd be interested in getting?
Do you have to play it day 1, or could you wait ~2 days after that Tuesday to play?

Depending on your answers to these questions, that should help you make a decision as to where you should keep your pre-order at. I've read on CAG that the Microsoft Store will do Next Day Air (release day delivery) for any pre-orders, whereas Newegg can take up to Thursday to arrive at your residence depending on where you live.
