Free 2-Day shipping if you are an Amazon Prime member (or put in some fillers to reach $25 for

I ordered one. Both versions will release on September 3rd, 2010!

Comparing the regular and limited edition from Gamestop.com yields the following difference:

Exclusive 96 PAGE DEVELOPER'S DIARY with CONCEPT ART and personal commentary from the design team at Bungie studios. A MUST for any Halo fan!

Just saw it's marked down to $18.89! Of course I doubt anyone can place new orders, but for those of us who have preordered it's a better drop. =D

OP, having been around forever and never having posted a deal as well (not by choice, I just never seem to stumble upon any before someone else already posts it), I applaud you.

Pretty sure he was being sarcastic brah.

This is a good deal for anyone into collector's stuff I guess, these guides do go for quite a bit after they've released.

Forge/Theater makes it super easy to find the weapons in each level. All I do is either go around in forge to find them or watch a replay and wait until someone picks up the gun and uses it. Then I rewind and see where they picked it up. It may be a tad slower, but it will help you learn the levels far more than a picture in a book will.

Update: Seems like both the versions of the guides are "Temporarily out of stock". According to Amazon, they should have shipped out on September 3rd. Received an email from them saying that Amazon would update me as to when the guide will ship out.

Good news out of this, though.

The Limited Edition Halo Reach Guide has dropped in price EVEN MORE.

The price for the Limited Edition Guide is now $18.89 ($16.10 off of MSRP!!!) from the original sale of $23.09 that I quoted in my first post.

http://www.amazon.co...83737758&sr=8-1

Good time to jump in on the LE Guide.

The standard guide is still at the original savings price of $13.49.

I'm kind of a big deal...

Had it preordered for a while, so I hope they change the price. Otherwise, I'm going to have to make a call!

I had it pre-ordered as well for $23.09. Canceled the order the re-ordered at the $18.89 price point. That probably put me in the back of the line, but at least I'll get it (someday LOL).

Well i figure that they said they could ship them on the 3rd, but someone went psycho about streetdate, so they really do have them in-stock, but they won't ship til the 14th. Just my thought, though. I'm keeping the preorder, just in-case, though.

You all are idiots!! The guide will not ship until the 14th...if you think amazon is going to ship out the guide before that date, you really have to be retarded...

Ummmm, way to start off your CAG career. Now please, get the Fuck out :)



P.S. If you're going to do something like this in the future, why don't you get correct info???? Amazon has shipped many things before the release date, and sometimes guides get released before their respective game.

God, I hate people like you.

WTF is wrong with you, bud? Say NO to drugs, especially before posting. ;)

Don't be an a-hole in this community. You'll find tolerance for idiots quite low on this site. Check your mouth and attitude at the door next time.

Anyways Dude, apparently, if you go to the site, Amazon now says "usually ships between 1 to 4 months".

*argh*

We'll see what happens. Hopefully it ships on or around the 14th.

I'm kind of a big deal...

You can just contact them by e-mail. I did that and they switched it from $23.09 to $18.89 in just five minutes.

Also: I hope I get my guide in time for for Halo: Reach. I was actually hoping I'd get it on Tuesday, but then of course it got delayed. :(

Tempted to get that guide, especially at that price. But, I'm a reformed LE guide -aholic. I had stacks of 'em and after I was done with the game...they were worthless. Must hold off!!!

Why do people on this site like guides so much? Not trolling, just curious...since there are so many free walkthroughs and whatnot online. It has always been a legit question I have.

I like them because I can have it right next to me while I play the game. The computer is in the other room, so it would REALLY disrupt the flow of the game to have to keep going back and forth. Also, you can take them anywhere, so you can read at many different times and places. They also often times contain info that can't be found on the internet walkthroughs like art sections, or developer commentary. Those are my reasons, but I'm sure there are others.
