Halo 4 Pre-Order Campaign Launches; High Price-Point Discussed

A number of retailer have been accepting pre-orders for the recently announced Halo 4 since it’s unveiling at Microsoft’s media briefing prior to the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) in Los Angeles this month. However, today Electronic Theatre has been contacted by a number of retailers stating that they have new information regarding the game’s release. (Halo 4, Industry, Microsoft, Xbox 360)

wouldn't be surprised if they did. they increased the cost of xbox live because it was providing us "exclusives"

Granted, I didn't like the price increase for Xbox Live Gold too but for the love of God, we were paying 50 bucks a year and if a 10 dollar increase bothers you, maybe you should just sell your 360 and get a PS3 or a PC. Not to mention there are buttload of retailers (including online ones) that are selling prepaid cards for 45-50 dollars. Anyway, on topic; I can't wait to see what kind of job will 343 will do.

People will pay what they need to. AAA titles always seem to sell...I'll be getting this day-1 by default.

The article doesn't make much sense to me. If they were going to have it at a larger price point then it would only be because it's coming out for the Xbox 720. I think the price of games goes up by $10 next generation.

Which is ridiculous, keep the price of the game the same now and it might be justified.

You beat me to it. The only way I can see this game going up in price is if it's for the new console. Also if this is the case gamers world wide will start picking what games they buy more carefully. It could actually see a drop in game sales and a rise in game rentals.

This game's gonna be amazing! It'll CRUSH anything on ANY other console period. Bringing to bare the full power of the cutting edge GPU and unified architecture of the 360. This thing is gonna rock!

Ha, just like reach. Dream on dreamweaver.

But that's in pounds. It'll still most likely be the regular 60 Dollars down here in the states.

Edit: Yup, sure 'nough, $60 on Amazon. Just pre-ordered. I don't see what OP is talking about.

so retailer's are releasing prices to a game that has just been announced? what retailers? this offers me no real info besides someone told someone something. so unless there is actual proof to this besides rumor this is going in the bull file

So this article is basically saying Halo is hugely popular like COD so the price gouging activision does overseas with its COD will be happening to Halo 4 due to this quote from an independent retailer?:

“We’ve not heard anything about Halo 4 yet, but I wouldn’t be shocked at all if we were forced above the £40 price point”

Lame article. Based on nothing.

Why would people be in such a rush to preorder a game that they haven't seen in action and is 2 years away? There's nothing to lose by not preordering. Some people I know have this hysteria that it will sell out.
A7XEric  +   1192d ago
I already have the game pre-ordered but not because I know it will sell out. Lets say I trade in a bunch of games to gamestop and have some left over credit, I'll just put that towards the game and slowly whittle away at the price of it over time.

And it's Halo, I'm into all of the Halo mythology, backstories, etc. so even if the game turns out to be mediocre I would still want to play it to know for myself and also just for the story.
