Newegg has the Halo Legendary Edition for only $39.99:

http://www.newegg.co...N82E16874103056

This has dropped about $6 since last week. I ordered one last Friday for $45.99 each, two more today at the new price.

At this price, they should go pretty fast.:hot:

IMPORTANT NOTE: Apparently some who have ordered this have reported not receiving the game disk and/or extras DVD in the package. I didn't have this problem in the three I ordered, and most who mention having gotten theirs from NewEgg do not seem to have a problem. However, a few have apparently been shipped without the disks _ which may or may not be replaced by Microsoft , but almost certainly will NOT be replaced by NewEgg _ so please think it over very carefully before ordering.

I was quoted $2.99 for UPS 3 day, but I didn't place the order. Still thinking about it.

:)Good question. I remember being at the midnight launch and being told that it was 'extremely limited.'
Within a week the local Best Buy had built a 10-ft pyramid of the unsold copies they still had in stock..
Also, can't remember off the top of my head, but I could swear helmet stand of the copy I ordered last week had a 10,000+ serial number.
Anyone else have any idea, other than 'way more than anyone wanted.
Perhaps this is this generation's ET - they produced at least one copy for every Atari 2600 in existence...

Yeah I just totally bought a 360 though dell and Halo 3 though this deal. All for under $300 I feel pretty good about it. Now I just need to find a good deal on XBL 12+1 Months then I should be able to play online with my friends again and watch all the Netflix On-Demand I can handle.

Is this the cheapest price for this?

Definitely the cheapest I've seen without it being used/ebay.

Pretty much.


Gamestop at one had the Legendary Edition marked down to $30 new, but they all lacked the Cat Helmet, as ordered by GS.

What I don't get is why there's so much stock of the Legendary Edition, when most "Edition's" stay at the same price or lose a little value. Not like this where the price dropped significantly.(spl?)

Same here. If it's still the same price come Saturday then I'll bite. I just bought that darn hard drive and SFIV this week so I should be smart about this

(hopes that it's still there saturday)

I have a feeling they severely overestimated demand. Kinda like what Atari did with E.T.

Difference being people actually wanted Halo 3.

How could it be any cheaper?

If I had a 360, first I would shoot myself. Then I would jump on this deal, even though I dislike Halo. The thing is, other people love Halo and it's always good to have choices when you have other people over playing (same reason I bought SSBB for $20, even though I don't like SSB).

Great deal, as far as Halo goes. Good job, OP.

EDIT:

If you can afford it/have the money now, I would get it sooner than later. This might not stick around, as regular editions still sell for more than this sometimes.

Yeah keep in mind just buying the game at Gamestop and Bestbuy is $40 now this is a pretty good deal with all the extras. I'm moving into a new place that has a wonderful shelf on the wall and I want to put my gaming trinkets on it. The Halo 3 helmet will go fantastically on that shelf and I just bought a 360 so this deal coudln't have come at a better time.

I think I'm gonna bite
I sold my copy of Halo 3 a few weeks ago and sort of regret doing so
I still have the helmet from my launch legendary edition, gonna give it to my friend who collects toy helmets

$43 shipped isn't bad at all on a new Halo 3 Legendary :)
