Now and then Gamestop alters their inventory where they take brand new products and mark them at the used price. They just had a pretty big one, not much quality, but still some really good deals. You can get the Halo 4 LE for the price of a used Halo 4. The only other good ones I can remember are Kirbys Dream Collector's Edition and Medal of Honor: Warfighter (PS3 Only)

Repetition in a game is NOT a bad thing, almost all games are repetitive. What matters is if YOU enjoy the game, then the repetition becomes enjoyable and doesn't feel monotonous or boring.

^Well, in his defense, I didn't know the Halo 4 LE was among those converted to used today. Now I know to ask for it if I stop by GSs this weekend.

Would love to get Halo 4 CE but as Saix_XIII said, it'll be hard to find. I'm sure some stores close to me should have at least 1. Another Gamestop used / price drop hunt!

Let's see if I can stack the birthday coupon and others to get this any cheaper.

So that makes it $37.99 instead of $100?

Before discount(s), yes. There's also the chance that the LE will no longer be sealed--in converting limited/collector's editions to used, some GS locations have been known to strip them of their bonus content and sell just the game or keep the bonuses for themselves.

I've seen several of these in-stock at GS too bad I already p/u" 2 from BB thinking they may become rare b/c of the LE numbering.

You should have listened when we told you it wasn't going to be. ;) what Halo LE is rare? (Halo 3 just recently went up in price for the LE).

To be able to check in-person what condition it's in and make sure everything that makes it an LE is there? Duh.

In my case, limited and collector's editions are the only things that my local stores don't seem to gut..

Does anyone know if I can renew my PUR card and have the B2G1 automatically on the card. Might buy 2 H4: CE and get Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate for free.

Nope, the B2G1 coupon appears in your Active Offers 2-3 business days after you renew the membership. But you could buy those three games right away, keep the receipt, then when the B2G1 coupon shows up, print it out, go back to the store, and ask to do a return-rebuy for the three games using the B2G1 coupon so you can get some money back. Most employees will understand that and process it, no problem.

I'm planning to update the bigger list later tonight. Just had some errands to do before than. And I can only see stuff in our store that has on hand that gets converted. We havent had a Halo 4 LE in a while. So if you know any other titles that got converted I can definitely check on it while I'm at work.

Went to Gamestop and both told me that it wasn't in the system anymore (knew that though) and that they didn't have any left. Didn't think it was going to be that scarce. Time to call a bunch of Gamestop's hoping that they still have at least one left.

Yeah, it all depends on the store and what edition it is. If it's a large bulky one they will just leave it in back so it's not taking up room on the shelf.

I'll also try to get a bigger list tonight, I just wanted to get the main ones out there since those could be going fast.

No surprise here. I rarely buy stuff in-store, and generally I like GameStop, but the stuff they do on "new" copies are ridiculous. I know they've been using the crappy price stickers that don't even come off very easily, then they put another clear sticker on it where it opens and then it left residue too. Why?
