Do you have to pre-order to get the codes? I hate pre-ordering...

What's some opinions on the best place/deal to pick it up release night...


Look at linkinprime's post 2 posts above yours. Gamestop is your best bet

There are those who said this day would never come. What are they to say now?

Not always. Sometimes different stores have better swag for the midnight launch. For ODST, Best Buy had a small frisbee and GS had nothing. It's all about what your local stores are doing.

If you are looking at the armor stuff, then GameStop is probably the best best.

The armors are just visual flairs right? They don't add anything like extra protection, extra grenades, extra damage...etc.

Nope. They are purely cosmetic.

I would be willing to bet that the Gamestop armor piece would sell for $15-$20 on ebay.

Thanks for the clarification. I also don't doubt that those codes will sell for around that much on eBay.

I dont think best buy really cares about reach

if those armor things are just visual customizations then I'll be pre-ordering from GS and maybe Amazon. then just sell the extra copy.

No need to do both. Gamestop is also getting the helmet that Amazon is getting...in fact I think everyone is, I have a feeling that it will just be packaged into the first pressing of the games. The only true "exclusive" item is the Gamestop armor so far.

Why do people pay $15-20 for dumbass pre-order DLC? Wouldn't it just be cheaper to, ya know, pre-order it themselves instead of paying $60 + $15 for extra crap?

The RDR ones were the funniest ones. When I sold a code for golden guns & a horse for more than the game cost, I knew people had issues.

I sold one of the Transformers WFC codes for $70 on eBay, that's the most I've gotten out of an "exclusive".

I got $15 the day before the $10 DLC with ALL the characters was released.

My local BB has the preorder cards up everywhere they can logically place them and signs about the midnight launch. Perhaps YMMV?

Has anyone heard anything on what's happening that night?? Like what stores are doing, or is it pretty much a straight-up "get your game and move on" deal. Any info would be helpful, especially if anyone knows what swag each store will have!!!!

I know your right, while sometimes it sucks and sometimes its good, I just think GS has better pre-order deals. On the codes thing, like LP said everybody is getting the recon helmet. Only GS has something exclusive. You think with a game this big there would be more exclusives like other games. I am pretty sure bungie did not want something like that.

For selling codes, if any of you have a PS3 and play MAG. The pre-order American faction code was selling for up to 100 bucks on ebay. Just to look different. A couple months ago Zipper released them all for free I believe.

GS has the best preorders because they are the largest game retailer in the US.

Back OT, wasn't GS originally getting a slightly different recon helmet before they announced the keg belly set?

Nevermind that was the Day 1 pickup helmet.

That's just it! I've been selling DLC for a while and at worst....I pay for 1/2 of the game. At best, I pay for the entire game AND I get all of the rest of the CE goodies.

I'm looking at the Legendary edition right now and considering upgrading, just to sell off the flaming helmet DLC. Since I don't play multiplayer much, it's no big deal to me.

Probably! No joke....the elite armor is at $49 with a few minutes to go.

I thought about preordering at Gamestop for that exclusive armor, but I want the $20 credit from amazon to put towards fable 3.

Just kidding. But I think I'm going to sell that code. I don't care about elites that much anyways!!!!!!

Okay, being a true CAG, lets do the math.....

$85 for the limited edition shipped on release day from amazon
- $20 credit toward future purchase (this can be argued since it's still OOP)
- $49 for the elite armor code
- $16 for the spartan variant preorder code
= $0 for the limited edition of Halo Reach

Today was a good day.
