Decision time: Do I go with my $44.99 preorder at Newegg or the $25 credit at the Microsoft store? Both deals are good so the deciding factor I think will be which of the two can get it to me closest to release. Anybody have experience with release day delivery from these two?

Personally I'd stick with newegg, but if getting it closest to release day is most important to you...MS store may get it to you release day and they may not. Newegg will be the following day earliest.

I'm holding out hope Newegg offers it for 48 on release day. I'd rather save money up front than buy at full price with a coupon.

So if I pre order at the $5 pre sale deposit at walmart, I get the $5 vudu and DLC armor without having to actually pay for the game, is this correct?

According to the email I received after I registered my code, yes. Said that it would be emailed on release day.

The card will work just like a regular Wal-Mart gift card.

How is the delivery time from the Microsoft Store? I just changed from Newegg to them since I wanted the armor.

Since I got a gift card at BB, thats where I can get it cheap so I'll get it there. Pretty sure the skins will be available for all on later or I hope.

*Thinking about it, it says SEVEN. There is the Gamestop Forest Armor, the Arctic Battle Rifle Skin, Premium Theme and then the current voting which looks like it will be a Ghost Avatar Prop. That means 4 things right there. Then it notes something of the three emblems only for PUR members.

So that means the above four plus the three emblems. AKA poor advertising/ wording on GS's end.

I think you totally nailed it! Stupid GameStop...or marketing geniuses because they know it will trick those who don't read past the bold text...

I don't like having a sig, but for CAG, I figured I'd sheep along.

Aren't they still doing the bans for people who play early?

Be careful, hope you don't get banned even though you have a legit copy.

I warned the people selling the game early on craigslist that they probably are doing bans on people playing it early. Hope the actor who played Froggy from Little Rascals told them that in his prank call lol (yes I repeated myself if you seen me mention this on another thread, I think it's epic hearing that tonight over a link I found).

They will send an email to allow you to update the info as needed. Shouldn't have to worry too much.

Can anyone confirm the Microsoft B&M stores have this for $54.99 with $25 gaming credit?

EDIT: I called the Santa Clara store and confirmed. Plus they have a midnight launch. Sweet.


Do you actually need to pre-order at the store to get the credit, or can you simply get it at launch?

Also, is the B&M credit a physical gift card or is it a receipt with the same expiration as the online credit?

Thanks.

Hey everybody I just want some advice. Should I pre-order the Halo 4 Limited Edition Console from Microsoft or Amazon? I went to Gamestop and Bestbuy and they stopped taking orders from it. Not sure if that is true or if they are just reserving it for later. Any other suggestions will be helpful. Thanks!

I think it really just depends on what kinda deal works for you .....if you can wait and don't mind your card being charged now Microsoft but if you want it on release day, mind only getting 10 buck instead of 25 then Amazon. Personality I'm working on AC3 plus I have the money now so I would go with Mircosoft since I would use the 25 on Need for Speed

Edit: Oh your getting the Console, I thought it was just the game, I would just go for Amazon then

Any particular reason why you chose Amazon over Microsoft or anything else?

If you're referring to getting the console at Amazon over anywhere else... I would guess no tax (if thats still an option for you, depending on where you live.) Tax on the console at my BB would have been around $30. At Amazon, its still tax free for me, with release date shipping thats usually good about being delivered on release date(BB has been a little sketchy with getting my items here on release date consistently despite advertising one of the shipping options as release date.)

Does anyone know if the Microsoft store has any advertisement for the in store price of $54.99 w/ gift card? I only ask bc my bb will pm these type of deals, they just deduct the gc amount from the purchase price, so paying $29.99 on release day would be sweet.

So Amazon will have the cheapest option compared to the others if I am buying it in the US right? How about the pre-order bonuses? Are they different from the game and the Limited Edition Console?

You can't change the information now, but when Newegg tries to charge the card they'll inform you of the error and allow you to update the card then. It might delay the order a little bit, but at least they don't cancel it.
