Thanks very much for this. I think all of the hubbub has affected me and I'll be getting Halo 3 after all.

i wasted 40 minutes of my life trying to preorder halo 3 at cc today, and use the 15off100 coupon. the guy said the coupon would work, but of course when they put in the upc for the legendary edition it wouldnt come up.

Does anyone know if the Halo Clix figures will be worth waiting until 8 am for Halo or should I just go to Gamestop/GC/Wal-Mart?

Just to let you guys know, the 1600 points deal at Best Buy does NOT work with the Legendary Edition of the game. You actually get NO deals for ordering the $130 version and you are not even guaranteed to be able to pick it up on launch day.

It's worth pointing out that the first two deals linked for the BB offers DO stack. So you can pre-order Halo 3, add an accessory over $29.99 (Xbox live cards and marketpoints count as accessories), get the free $10 gift card, and also get the 1600 points for $4.99 all in the same shopping cart.

Is there any word on LAUNCH DAY seals whatsoever? Becuase it's all been pretty much known.

I've been waiting on any news on them, if not guess I'll have to go to my local BB midnight Launch

Just to add a few things, I believe Wal-Mart is doing a midnight launch also and apparently having checkout lanes reserved for Halo 3.

It looks like you're doing B&M stores for launch, but if someone is willing to wait for the game and wants to save a little you can get it from familyvideo.com for $46 shipped.

GameRush/Blockbuster SHOULD have a $10 Gift Card with purchase (or pre-order). Coupons mailed out to Blockbuster.com members (still not e-mailed yet).

Costco has a good price if you pre-order. You don't get anything free, and they don't open at midnight though.

But the prices are lower than MSRP by a bit.

Best Buy has a Halo3/360 deal.

Buy a Samsung DLP and a 360 and Halo 3 and get $410 off instantly. Basically, a free 360 Premium and Halo 3 with the purchase of a TV. Excellent deal. Also, you can get a premium or other 360 and pay the difference. If I only needed a TV now.

GAMESTOP
- Midnight Launch Party (Tourneys, possible freebies/prizes)
- Order Halo 3 Game Guide & Receive Exclusive Halo Poster w/ purchase

Question:

do you have to go at the midnight launch & buy the guide to get the poster?
do you have to pre-order (if that's even possible) the guide to get the poster?
or is it just anytime after the guide is available, you can get a poster w/ it?

since i pre-ordered from CC and honestly dont want to wait in line at midnight to buy a guide. but if i could walk in the next day, i'd do it.

Still debating one which one to bite.

Who here knows anything about the Circuit City freebies/giveaways? I'm either for CC or BB. If CC has freebies and prizes, I'll go with them because of the poster. If not, then I'll play my chance at a halo chair at Best Buy.

You have to add an accessory. Points and Xbox live cards count. I added a 13 month Halo 3 Xbox Live card.

Appreciate the thread, but I'm wondering if there's going to be something simple like a B&M selling it for $10 less like Bioshock.

CC was selling Bioshock for just $49.99 and you got a PM at BB easily.

Anyone expecting something similar for Halo 3?

I'm holding out for Fry's...

I want the LE for $59.99 or less. But BB and CC are so tempting.

There's no need for anyone to sell it under MSRP. It's not as if they needed to offer any incentives in the first place.
