Seems like it is OOS online and for ship-to-store. So unless your store has a copy in stock you are out of luck.

Repetition in a game is NOT a bad thing, almost all games are repetitive. What matters is if YOU enjoy the game, then the repetition becomes enjoyable and doesn't feel monotonous or boring.

I see these legendary boxes at Best Buy whenever I go in there. Those things are frickin HUGE!! I'd pay someone $50 to get that thing out of my house. ;)

Any idea whether the Limited edition will ever get a sale or clearance? I am not interested in something that takes up this much space... the Limited edition seems like the smarter choice in that case.


Buy the legendary and sell the code and statue. then you'd have a great deal on the limited edition.

I have 3 available locally, and another 3 or so within an 1.5 hours. Might have to pick up one or two if the codes still sell well.

I kind of want this, and my closest best buy clearly says they are in stock right now (while all the other ones are out)! Rather tempting, if it's true you can sell the helmet code for 45.

However I'm a grown man, and already have Reach, and have less than zero need or space for a silly statue...

W.T.F. Why? Cuz they make money off the shipping and handling or something like that? That's retarded. It's like a computer professor asking you to write a program and then requiring you to submit it to him only in hardcopy form.


It's actually nothing like that.

Be weary of their online inventory tracker, the only best buy in my town was OOS, but I saw about 10 of them a few days ago, went in to look today, still had a huge 4X4 stack of em, and 4 sitting right next to the game trade in counter. The price was still marked 79.99 though, but they rang up correctly at the register, had the page loaded on my phone just in case though.

I ordered reach from gohasting`s 10 buck deal and traded it in to BB for 24 bucks with the gears pre order, got my gift card and canceled the pre order all because I wanted that statue lol. I still feel bad for missing out on the halo 3 helmet statue.

Will best buy price match drop in price? Just bought this a few days ago.


Buy one at $50, return this new one with the old receipt.

You should have went back and waved it in that chick's face.....and, waved the cash in her face, too!


I came here b/c I was sick of low trade-in prices.

I do this all the time. It's too much trouble to price match. The CSRs are sometimes clueless, they have to call someone else over to enter some override code, they make some excuse about why price match doesn't apply here, blah, blah, blah.

Easiest thing is what you suggested. Buy and return with old receipt. Accomplishes the exact same thing in way less time and hassle.

I am going to do this tomorrow and put towards Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 since I didnt get the original. It will get me it for like $20.

From the time of the first post, the BB website said no stores near me had any in stock. That was odd to me considering two days a go I saw 3 of them my local store. So I decided to walk in and check; sure enough, there was one there. I had the guy at the gaming counter scan it and it rang up $49.99. I immediately bought it, much to his chagrin as he'd been waiting for it to drop.

I did the same thing to the poor guy when :ps3: Dead Space 2 Collector's Edition dropped. >.>

Thanks for the heads up, Cheapy!

Anyone who bought this can tell me what the UPC code is on the Limited Edition game and on the standard game inside it again?

I want to make sure it has a UPC and what it is (in some cases they will not have the UPC and say not for resale).

Pretty please? Thanks!

There isn't going to be a UPC. It will have a not for resale message on it.

Wait, I have a copy of Halo Reach I got from a Legendary Edition and it has a UPC code (0 00017 01419 9). And I don't see "Not for resale" anywhere on it.

Probably different for xbox games. All ps3 bundled games will have a "not for resale" upc on the back

I'm going off of my memory, but I'm 99% sure it just has a different UPC code instead of "not for resale". I believe it also comes in a black case instead of a green one.

The UPC on the game is 000017014199. As ragingst0rm6 said, it comes in a black game case. The Limited Edition box inside the Legendary Edition doesn't have a UPC (no plastic slipcover).

Picked one up during lunch today, they still had 3 more in stock. I plan to keep the statue and game, selling off the DLC which almost pays for this. :)

Got me a pricematch yesterday of $10.95 after picking up 1 of the remaining 3 copies last week (and hassling the video game supervisor to reduce the price from $79 listed to $59, which he did, just to get rid of it).

May sell the DLC, but really happy to get legendary after watching the price forever, now.

This. ^ Obviously it's a little more difficult if you're PMing a competitor for a price adjustment, but after a few bs excuses, I'm getting a little tired of retailers finding loopholes in their PM policies. Also, it means you get to play your game AND still wait for that price drop.

Got an alt account for Steam cards? Sick of not getting all your drops before the market crashes? Tired of all the hours spent catching up on all your alt's drops? Send me a PM!
