If you thought you could wait to pre-order the Legendary or Limited Edition of Halo: Reach, you’re wrong, even the Xbox 360 Halo: Reach Bundle is SOLD OUT at GameStop.com.
Its only Halo!
Halo 3 Legendary Cat Helmet was in stock for at least a year past it's release. MS isn't going to undership Legendary edition which gives them a much higher profit margin than the normal game.
Halo 3 Legendary Editions were easy to mass produce. Halo: Reach Legendary editions are actually limited, as the figures they come with are hand painted. They're not making anymore of these.
yup...hand painted statues with certificate of authentication so these ones are much more limited than the helmet
better off getting it at amazon anyways....You get .99 cent release date delivery (yes, for all three versions), a $20 credit towards your next purchase....I finally decided to get the legendary, even though I never buy special editions of anything, but I had a $20 credit and a $23 dollar trade in, so it only cost me about 107.00, and I'll get it next tuesday.
Even the bundle is sold out. People should know never to underestimate the system selling power of Halo. Even after so long there are loads of people who want to play Halo but don't have a 360.
as usual your comment will probably be met with the scorn of the hateful sony SDF.. even if you are right!
That's because the stuff he usually says is ridiculous and just not needed if you actually read the post he usually does you will understand....People do not just disagree with him for the sake of it. Here Omega4 has said something reasonable and that's why he hasn't got any comment from so called "hateful Sony SDF" abusing him.
shh :D It's fun playing the victim! :D
Sold out?! Even the bundle... Well I guess they really are in "limited" quantities this time. Lol...well, I just pre-ordered the limited edition 360 off of Amazon--free release date delivery for prime members. I love Amazon.
yep I buy all my games on Amazon. You get sweet discounts, you dont need to go to the store, and u dont pay state taxes.
This is Halo. Shouldn't surprise anyone. I'd like to see Gt5 do that.
dont bring GT5 into this. We dont need to start a stupid flame war.
but its inevitable
yea it probably will actually, gran turismo games always sell very high. anyways, why even bring gt5 into the comments of a halo reach article? dumb troll. on topic: i cant wait to get my halo reach xbox 360 bundle next week man, im so excited!
When so many of you guys start calling out the billions of PS3 trolls on this site, then you can say something to etownone, until then, he's right. I get sick of every time a 360 fan shows even an ounce of brand support he is torn to shreds, but PS3 fanboys are completely out of control around here and no one says a peep. And GT5 will NOT sell like this, just watch and see.
GT5 is a totally different genre.....one that does not see nearly as many sales as the top first person shooter games...I'm sure GT5 will sell alot though....just don't expect Halo-like numbers.
'until then he's right' Oh that line made me chuckle ^^ The logic is astounding. Ps: yeah, halo r will probably sell more, but honestly, as long as I get my one copy, I.D.C.
Halo is the reason many of us bought an Xbox and a 360. And it seems like forever every Sonyfan says GT is King of sales as far as exclusives between Xbox and PS. Always throwing GT sales numbers from last gen saying Halo doesn't stand a chance. Well ... here it is. You got the two best selling exclusives on each console coming out around the same time. It's the little things like this that make the console wars interesting to me. Like when Gta was coming to the 360 and every psfan said it would sell more on their beloved ps3, and then it not only sold better, but had better framerate and AA ...or when FF13 was coming out on the 360, and 360 fans thought it would sell better on the 360 cause of the larger install base, but it not only sold better on the ps3, it had a much higher resolution. It's all in good fun ... Even though I do got a bet going with one sonyfan on this site, if GT5 sells more then Reach, then I'm off this site, same as him, vice versa.
you do realize that no halo game has been able to outsell GT3 back in the PS2 days, so to say that a GT game cant have halo-numbers is very contradictory, it should be the other way around, even GT4 sold 10+ million, GT3 is close to 15 million
Getting my Limited from Best Buy. I can't wait. I feel bad not getting the Legendary though. Maybe I'll just pick up a few Halo Reach action figs to make me feel better.
I couldn't see myself buying the legendary either. Hope I dot regret it. I remember buy the Halo 3 legendary .... only to see them on a liquidation sale like 6 months later
I did too. I was butt-hurt to see it for like $60 so soon after it's release. Ah well lesson learned I guess.
picking up both legendary edition and the halo reach limited edition xbox from best buy, holy time going sooo slooooooooow CAAANT WAIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIITTTT, I LOVE HALO and I LOVE BUNGIE
FYI the legendary includes the limited edition of halo reach. If you did not know that perhaps you will reconsider and save some money. that said I also love bungie!!!! one more week people!!!!!!
I meant the limited edition xbox 360 bundle not the limited edition game :p
I have two Legendary Editions pre-ordered (gonna sell one on Ebay), and I'm getting the Limited Edition Halo: Reach Xbox 360 as well. Less than a week left. I can't wait!
u going to go broke legendary includes limited edition Im a hardcore halo and xbox fan but thats ridiculous
LIMITED EDITION HALO: REACH XBOX 360, not the Limited Edition of Reach and the Legendary Edition of Reach.
Should we be surprised by this? it's Halo...
I can see the point of getting a collector/special edition if you are getting in game content but paying $150 for merchandise I never saw the appeal...I must be a minority because a lot of these things with merchandise in them are coming out (black ops, GT5, Halo and more)...... so they must be popular
As much as I am a fan, I don't need to spend that much money when I'm not getting anything to actually enhance the experience. All that stuff would just collect dust on a shelf.
true but the spartan models look sweet! lol
But an $70 sweet? Err, I'll pass and use the saved money for another game .... or maybe a year for LIVE ...lol
You can get Halo: Reach at dell.com for 34.99! And God help me, but I bought the Legendary edition. My wife is going to kill me with it!
It's $44.99...I checked.
I'm seeing $44.99 http://accessories.us.dell....
...it's always his fault. But in reality, typo or drunkiness or both.
Dell.com is sold out of the Limited and Legendary Editions as well! Seems like people are not afraid to lay down an extra 20 to 90 bucks on some Halo "dust - collectors" (myself included).
Tell your wife that it is Halo. That should keep her nice and quiet.
They always stop taking preorders a week before release on the special editions. Because their not going to take a preorder a day before the game comes out because they would have to have it shipped. They stop now, report the numbers, and have them shipped to the retailers.
Does anyone know how many halo reach limited edition console made i just want to know for sure is it really limited am getting one but if they made so many of them then am just gonna get the normal edition
Good thing I pre ordered the Legendary Edition! Now do I wait till the holidays put it on ebay and get a regular copy or do I un box it? Aghhhhh!!! I think I'll wait and see how the other retailers sell.
i must confess im a ps3 fanboy... but this damn halo reach looks so damn good. im gettin the xbox 360 halo reach bundle next week. i havnt been this excited since god of war 3. whatcha guys think?
@trekka13: Good to hear, I've got all the current systems and have found great games on all of them. In my opinion, if you are going to be a new 360 owner and want to experience a game on it that is'nt available anywhere else, it's Shadow Complex.....its $15 on xbox live...it's an awesome action game with "metroidvania" 2-d style shooter and exploration style elements, the graphics are pretty badass for a downloadable game too....If you end up liking Halo, try out the Gears of war games too, they can be had really cheap on amazon and ebay and most used-game shops....have fun with your 360 (thats what its really all about, bro, f^&K the fanboy $h*%).
Except it's not sold out and they're limiting the amount of supply they are pre-selling to ensure everyone gets their pre-order. Hopefully the market isn't flooded with legendary editions again. Though it is a good way to pick it up for 5 bucks a year later. I just picked up the standard edition so I don't get bit by legendary editions of the past.
im in the us military. on base they still have some of the cod mw2 limited edition. ill be getting my halo reach edition. they always have them. and they dont have midnight realeses either
It's rare for an EB/Gamestop in my region to have a midnight launch, to even consider it they need 100 pre-orders and then go ahead from head office. Last midnight for three hours around was GTA IV.
Wow all ps3 fans are buying to great stuff .
