As for Amazon, the UPC on the Halo Reach game that comes with the Limited Edition doesn't pull up the game, but then again, when you trade in games, it doesn't ask for UPCs. So I dunno. I may try "upgrading" as the statue seems pretty cool and the DLC might be worth a few bucks.

I can guarantee you won't be able to send the game from this in as a regular Halo Reach trade-in. You would have to send the original one with the standard UPC. NorAm (Amazon's third-party game trading partner) will reject it nearly every time if it isn't the standard-issue UPC. And if you trade it as the Limited or Legendary edition they will expect all the extras (except for one-time use DLC codes).

How much credit can you get for a used Halo Reach? I might buy this and then trade my regular halo reach in.

I sold the DLC for about 50 bucks which made my purchase 25 in the end. Only thing I would have liked to watch was the documentary.
At this rate though it looks like it will definitely hit 30 soon enough, hopefully teaching all us CAGers NEVER to buy a 100+ LE unless you love the series or know for a fact its actually limited.

You got to be kidding me.... Bungie promised this was not going to be like the halo 3 legendary edition.... I will never ever believe a word from that company again.

Yep, just snagged one myself.
I would never normally even pay that much for it, but coincidentally my son happened to go with me to Gamestop tonight and saw that they had it for $80 and told me he wanted that for Christmas. He already has the game and in fact I just bought him ODST tonight with the B2G1 (got a completely mint copy - obviously one GS converted to used from brand new). Anyway, I don't think he really expects me to get it (since he knows he's already getting an iPod Touch) so this will be a semi-surprise for him.
With the $10 savings, I figured I'd just save myself the trip and get it from the DotD. I didn't realize that was only a $10 drop from their "normal" price, but that makes sense since they would most likely have been matching GS's price before. I guess I could have gone with GS.com and used one of my last few $10 off coupons from the deals last Spring. But I'll save those for other things.
Of course, I will now end up with 2 copies of the game. If Amazon is giving $30.50 for it, maybe I'll just send it there: makes the Legendary stuff just $40 in Amazon credit... Just checked, it isn't $30.50, it is $27.75... Well, that sucks... But it is a better deal than the trade-in value of the Legendary Edition itself (for which they'd expect every last piece): $28!
A question for those who have it, is the copy of Reach within the Legendary Edition the normal one with the same UPC or is it in a different case or have different cover art? If it is different, is there anything (like DLC codes) included in the Halo Reach game case? I'm just wondering if maybe I can simply sell the game off new (still sealed) as that might get me a bit more than the $27.75 from Amazon. Edit: I think I answered my own question by looking at the picture at Amazon. It looks like it is in a black case and the cover art is different. That is just like the Fable III CE game... But, does the case have any bonus DLC stuff in it like the Fable III one does? In other words, if you want to keep all the extras but get rid of the game do you have to open it (the game case itself that is) to take out any goodies?

I predicted six months. Man, I was way off. It only took half that. Makes you wonder why anyone ever pays $150 for one of these. I learned my lesson after the Halo 3 one. Let this be a lesson to all. CE's will always show up for cheaper later unless the game is named World of Warcraft.
