I think the horde of flippers ruined the trade in program, like Microcenter.


No offense to BB but they were crazy for offering some of these TIV's. I would buy a game months ago from BB, trade it in during their 100% TIV and get more money than I paid for it.

It was bound to die out. Hopefully they still have good TIV's but doubt we'll see 50% or 100% TIV's as often as we did.

Hmm, buy this now or hold out because I have a sneaking suspicion Microsoft is going to announce a GOTY edition that includes all the map packs....


When has Microsoft every released a GotY for a Halo game?

This. I wouldn't get my hopes up if I were you. This is a great price for a good game. I didn't enjoy it nearly as much as previous installments of the series, but that doesn't mean it's bad. I say that in regards to both multiplayer and campaign.

Any idea how fast ship to store is? I know its estimated between 3 to 5 days but I really do want it faster than that. Yes, I'm being that type of gamer but been meaning to play this for a while with my brother.

man, debating to pick this up to swap the discs in my CE and 'retire' that version. One day my two year old literally took the disks out of the steelbook sitting on top of the TV stand and started rubbing them together! They still worked, but some nasty scratches on the back. Needless to say, he was then immediately banned from my media room until he is 5..

If you have to play it sooner just buy it from gamestop and return that copy when you get your best buy copy.

Your store doesn't have a copy in stock for instore pick up?
Every Best Buy I've been to has plenty of Halo 4s.

They have only 1 for pick up. I'm sure the store actually does have more but it isn't allowing me to get two for pickup.

Might just go there when they open and get two instead of waiting.

Is it wise to pick this up now even if I don't intend to play it for a while? Do Halo games generally get much cheaper than this?

They do not. It is best to get it at this price but if you're not going to play it than you might as well wait. Maybe another sale will come up in the coming months.

Yeah, for a new copy. I could see this being $15 on GF in the next 2 months. If it wasn't for Reach still being in my backlog, I might of jumped on this deal.

There has never been a GOTY Halo game so I wouldn't count on that. Only Halo Wars came out with more content on the Platinum Hits copy.

Ordered my copy. I've only played Reach and loved it. Want to play them in chronological order so I still have to pick the remaining Halos. Regarding Halo 2, is there a way to play that game without having an original Xbox? Is it available for download in the Market place?

All the games work on the 360 so Halo 1 and 2 will play. Alternatively you can get 1 and 2 on PC and just use a 360 controller to play them.

How does one tell if a game was repackaged? I feel like my copy of Kingdom Hearts Dream Drop Distance was repackaged now that I look it over in it's shrink.

Edit- Decided to open and there is no game. Am I able to exchange for an identical item or is there nothing I can do at this point?

That sucks, I had a similar thing happen to me. I bought Burnout Paradise for PS3, I was still in the middle of playing Burnout Revenge, so I just let it sit on the shelf.

Upon finally opening the case (about a year after I bought it), the disc inside was a CDR with a cheap-o half-assed photcopy sticker of Burnout Paradise (incorrectly aligned and printed might I add). It was too late to do anything about it at Best Buy.

Weird. The same thing happened to me with that exact game (Burnout Paradise) but I purchased my copy from Wal-Mart. It too was a CD-R with a home-made label. I was lucky as I was able to exchange after letting them know what happened.

Yay! Got one for my husband and one for me. I was debating getting it at Gamefly for $20, glad I waited. We both had $10 RZ certificates so they were only about $8 each.

But it didn't come with Halo 3 itself now, did it? Not considered a GOTY by any means.

My local best buy has taken out their gaming register and lowered their gaming inventory for a lot of titles. They didn't even have Halo in stock yesterday. Very disappointing :(

That stinks. One of my stores (3rd closest) did the same.

it is going to become a standard/ storewide protocol soon for most, if not all bb b&m stores. As I was told by store rep about a few weeks ago, when I was doing my trade ins.

Find a cheap copy of the original XBox version and play that (as long as you have a HDD on your system) or download it from GoD.
