So Amazon will have the cheapest option compared to the others if I am buying it in the US right? How about the pre-order bonuses? Are they different from the game and the Limited Edition Console?

I bought the console through best buy online with insore pick up. That way I can avoid tax, get $20 cert and get the system on launch day. Right now it looks like best buy pre-orders are "in store" only though.

My local MS store says $59.99. Still the best deal of the group I think.

For those looking for the LE, I just ordered one at microsoftstore.com and it went through - any reason to think it won't ship in a timely fashion?

I can't tell if it comes with the $25 or not - any idea?

I grabbed the Newegg deal since I really do not need to have it day 1 and they have the best price for me. Another game to add to the pile I might get to in the next few months... lol

Sadly, it might be Monday for Newegg orders. I hope mine gets shipped from their warehouse in California instead of New Jersey or the other place. I live in California.

Just ordered my copy from Amazon for $39 after waiting for Gears 3 trade in credit and Amazon Chase points, it says estimated delivery date November 8 :(

Oh well I'll either buy a BB or Wal Mart copy and play that then return my Amazon copy when it gets here. :bouncy:

I pre-ordered the Archives Edition of Resident Evil 6 and picked free shipping and received it on release day. I'm on the East Coast, though, so I'm not sure how much the activity of Sandy could delay shipments still.

They also sent my pre-order of the Killzone Trilogy out a day early, and I didn't realize that until just now.

Just brought one of those pre-order cards at Walmart since I had a GC laying around. I assume even if you dont pick up the game, you still get the code for the Web Armor through email?

If so, I'll buy the game at Gamestop or Best Buy, otherwise I guess I'll just get it at Walmart. Paying 5$ for the code myself seems much more efficient than trying to get one for much more after release day.

That's the case I believe, it's still not 100% clear but that's been the accepted hypothesis.

If thats the case, pretty awesome way to handle pre-order DLC. Other stores should take note, tired of having to buy multiple 60$ copies just to get all the stuff.

Well they initially did some kind of like beta online dlc shelf on the Wal Mart website where they were selling the vudu $5 credit codes for 35 cents and it came with a bunch of different DLC based on what version/game you chose.

They had Halo 4, Black Ops 2, AC3, etc and people were trying to buy like one of each and all the of them were getting cancelled except the Halo 4 ones.

So we all got the Vudu credit codes to redeem, but we are still waiting to hear on the DLC codes for Halo because I haven't gotten any codes myself, I assume I will on the 4th hopefully, but it's still up in the air because supposedly they removed the "beta" items that were 35 cents on the website. So in a way it was an error I think on the website but they sent out the Vudu codes, now just hope they send the Halo codes.

I bought copies at Best Buy and Walmart. Walmart so I can get it at midnight, Best Buy to sell it yet still get the $20 GC and preorder bonuses.

If any CAGs are looking for a teammate in Halo, feel free to add me. Gamertag is Dund3r. I have a mic and I play to win!

Has anyones Microsoft Store order shipped yet? I took the free-shipping thinking maybe I'll get release date but I'm having my doubts now.

Really leaning towards Newegg. $44.99 is a great price and I'm not a big user of MS points, so it seems a little silly to spend $60 for base game +$25 on MS points after coupon when I can just get the game for $45.

Just go with Newegg. You might have to wait an extra day or two, but when you finally get the game, you'll think "man, I got this cheaper than most people and saved almost $20" and you'll get all tingly.

$45? I'm only seeing $47.99 from newegg. unless you preordered it months ago when they had it at that price.

Yeah I got it last month when they had the $44.99 deal. I've got probably close to 4000 MSP from Bing anyway so more than enough to cover the few bits of DLC I'm interested in.

How long did it take you to get that many points on bing?

According to the email I received after I registered my code, yes. Said that it would be emailed on release day.

The card will work just like a regular Wal-Mart gift card.



Awesome, Thanks so much!

So I could technically buy multiples and then just put them all together to buy other stuff at wal mart...is this correct?
