GameStop is having issues with preorder content. I didn't get a single code and the staff didn't know what to do. I was told to come back during normal business hours...

Urge to kill rising.

Lucky. Atleast all went well at Walmart for me, in and out fast, and not a single cent spent :D


Well we'll see if it messes up my $20 GCU bonus...

I picked up my Halo 4 LE Console and will be hooking it up tomorrow. I'm not a huge Halo fan and I haven't been following much of the pre release stuff but I had a few questions.

Are the two controllers the same as the ones you can buy at Best Buy or are they exclusive to the console?

Also is the limited edition console DLC inside the game case? I haven't opened my game yet but I quickly checked elsewhere inside the box and didn't see anything...

I'm currently scanning youtube videos but most are from the UK

Same here. No pre-order or powerup rewards emblem codes.

I agree this won't have a small print number but I would say it is more limited then most AAA titles. Expect your big retailers (Walmart and Best Buy; perhaps Gamestop) to have a dozen or so extra per store and Target to have a few.

Obviously it wouldn't be. It is a Microsoft LE, they mass produce these things like crazy. No real value in it anyway, just buy the season pass or whatever for it to get the maps. Would still be cheaper.

Did you go all the way to checkout? When I looked at the deal earlier you had to go to the final screen before it showed the discount

I can confirm it is showing $59.xx in both Chrome and IE

Looks like maybe it was just a preorder promotion from them

^ I can confirm the LE Console Content is on a voucher inside the "not labeled for resale" game case that comes with the console bundle.

All codes are on one voucher and they are exposed (i.e. no protective strip).

picked up at midnight at best buy. West Hartford CT, it was awful. I suggest to anyone getting call of duty do not go to the midnight event. They are just run so poorly and personally the experience of just picking up the game took something away from the fun of getting the game early. Last time I pre-order at best buy, amazon release day delivery.

If it says shipping soon, it is more than likely on the way. Their email system gets backed up during big game releases. The 1 day shipping was only added for people that pre ordered on Monday or Sunday. Prime 2 day shipping is release date shipping now.

What is with the Amazon Defense Force?
I realize that Amazon has been "A+, number one" for you but is it so hard to believe that other people feel shafted? For example, I am a Prime member, I preordered in May, my copy is still "not yet shipped", one day shipping would only have gotten it to me on Wednesday plus I only ordered one copy for myself; not to resell. You're acting like no one else, other than you, as ever ordered from Amazon. SMDH.

Yay for no protective strip, but not so happy about the not for resale label on the game case.

My son was able to get the dog tags, helmet, and pen from BB, but it sounds like all GameStops are having issues with DLC. Mine are already sold on ebay.....

Stinks right? Of all the games to let people down on...
I'm going to try Target this morning. I'm hopeful since I recently saw the AC3 CE at a few of my stores. Good luck.

Yeah it is plastered "Not Labeled for Individual Sale" right across the front. Again I didn't follow this game much but there are also two discs labeled as "Disc 1" and "Disc 2" but that could be something that everyone was aware of.

No instruction manual either and on the inside of the case art are the health and hazard warnings.

Again no protective strip and the DLC codes are divided into 4 labeled as follows:

In-Game Skins; Emblem

Female Avatar Prop (FOTUS)

Male Avatar Prop (FOTUS)

Avatar Item (Crawler)


^ I thought this included some sort of rifle but maybe that is in the first code

I know, of all the games its the biggest exclusive release of the year well there are only 5 people ahead of me so should be able to get it.

Question for anyone who pre-ordered the normal edition and upgraded to LE how did it work? Does it affect the $20 RZ?

Apparently, Gamestop's DLC printer server is offline. So, I got a rain check on the DLC, and a coupon for some free Chipotle out of the deal, for the inconvenience. So, score some Halo 4 and the screaming shits for me tomorrow night, when I get home from work.

I have yet to even try Chipotle, but anyway, I am so glad I decided to just sit home and pick it up in the morning.

Ah that's unfortunate. I bought a LE as well so I'm giving my standard one from the console to a friend. Hope he doesn't mind it opened...

Yeah, my local Gamestop said to come back later this week to get the DLC. Sucks, I sold mine on ebay already, too. I know the guys there and hopefully they'll hook me up.

The one I'm worried about is Best Buy (where I got the console). They f the codes up all the time.
