Cheapest price I've seen for the crazy legendary edition, although I might be wrong.

Advertised in their current deal magazine.

I got the halo 3 legendary edition, after pondering it for a few weeks, I can't justify paying any more for special editions of games. Its alot of money that soon could be worth half of the price. Many times I brought games including the halo 3 legendary edition and the price has dropped. Nothing is as rare as it seems.
Ebay buyers paying nearly double the price of this are wasting their money, I would say after christmas look out for this for £40-£60.
I'm gone to keep my eye out for cheap prices.

Voted Hot btw

This could easily drop down to £25-£30 within weeks.
Good find for now OP

Cheers

Does it include a Master Chief branded Fleshlight?

As far as i know as of the now this will be a limited run and there wont be more made once the game releases so anyone hoping for it to drop right down are living in dream land sorry

other than tht not a bad price for it.
#5
Also to keep in mind. This has been reported to actually be a "limited" run. Unlike others that claim to be rare and must have (Halo 3 springs to mind).
This could actually have a lasting value to it and not bomb in price like Halo 3's Legendary edition did.
#6
Well, if you're right, and they are very limited, their resale value might well go up over time. Bit of a gamble though, and you'd have to keep it in spotless condition.

So, just like every other extremely limited edition games then? Like COD:MW2 perhaps?

Anyone who thinks this will be sold out and none available ever again for a much cheaper price is living in dream land. Sorry. :)

Well you say that, BUT, I've just looked here:

Halo 3 LE seems to have kept it's value. Unless these prices are highly inflated, but the cheapest 2nd hand on Amazon is £74

Bungie have always made their limited editions limited. This is why each store got an allocation and many have sold out already.

This is a great price, but expect it to be crazy hard to find.
#10
Also have to consider that due to this being Bungie's last Halo game (for now) people may see it as an end of an era collectible. All doom and gloom that 343 could ruin the franchise may spur people to consider Reach the end of Halo.
Opinion's though from what I've read around the net.

As for Halo 3 helmet - I got mine for £40 new 3 months after release and on Av forums I would be lucky to get that again. Despite the communality of the "limited, or legendary" tags these days this is one that will live up to its name.
#11
Not bad for an ornament that will just sit there and collect dust, bargain.
#12
Meh, the Legendary Edition was widely available for £40 on both Amazon and eBay just after halo 3 launched, so glad I held back and bought it two weeks later.

The Bioshock 2 CE was a limited run as well - look how many of those are still around! You can't give them away atm.
#13

If you buy this you are a virgin.


lol.

It's worth considering if you can buy it, play it, then sell it for the price you got it for - or possibly more. I think most of us are debating that point.

You then sell it to the virgin, of course. :D

What, like the Michael Jackson external hard drive that was supposed to be a limited edition ?
In reality it seems to have clocked up more miles than his plastic surgeon, and almost as many as his doctors' lawyer X)

That's another good example of joke "limited edition." Too many of these things are just a bad joke.

We could do with getting some solid info on how many are going to be produced, and whether it's truly going to be just one product run produced.
#16
Sorry but just another hyped up item which will end up gathering dust on a shelf. Can't believe anyone would want to pay this sort of money just for 'extra's'

Just buy the game at Tesco Entertainment Deal and be done with it, save the change for going out or a rainy day :)
#17
Hot from me. I know it's overpriced for what it is, but I don't care. As I'm a fan of the Halo series I want to keep my Legendary edition as it's the last game in the franchise to be made by Bungie.

For the people who are interested in purchasing the game and want to know what it comes with, check out this silly but funny un-boxing video from shopto.net http://kotaku.com/5634006/unboxing-the-halo-reach-legendary-edition

How much were game charging?

I looked on their price for a price comparison, but it doesn't seem to be there.
#20
It's always a gamble with these 'limited' editions. Some live up to the name, some don't (well most don't). It has been reported this is far more limited than the stoopid excess of Halo 3 legendary editions. I myself am very happy I paid £76 for this with Tesco using THAT code a few weeks back.

But yeh, these limited editions have turned me into the 40 year old virgin. I have so much stuff still sealed cuz I think they'll be worth sumut in years to come lol. Well I'll have the last laugh I tell ya! lol

Amazon marketplace prices are not a good indication of market value. All they usually tell you is the lowest price offered that somebody is NOT willing to pay.

GAME were charging £94.99.
I only kept my order with them as I had £17.50 worth of reward card points.
Had I not had reward points, I would have gone with Tesco Entertainment.

Tbh, I remember seeing the halo 3 legendary being £30 at one point at like gamestation. Was stupid.

Sold out at Amazon and play.com now.

This version will be gone as soon as the game is released. When it's gone it's gone.

Anyone believing this will be freely available for a cheap price after 1-2 weeks is going to be kicking themselves that they get this when they could. Just like the GOW 3 Trilogy edition and starcarft 2 Collector's edition.

But it was £125 at Tesco, even with the 15% code it's still too expensive.
#26
It was £125 but for a short while it dropped to £90, obviously making it £76 with the code. I think they cottened on and raised it back up to the £125 again. But for the lucky few (inc me!) who got in during the price drop... result!
#27
RRP was always 99.99 on this so Tesco screwed up. I've seen/handled the real thing at work and personally I love it, for the Halo fan it really is the best special edition they have done.

Will it gain or lose value? I don't care, Im not a reseller, I'm a fan. The statue is great in terms of size, its nearly as tall as the old 360 and the figures are much better quality than the usual toys. The ammo box it all comes in is very well done for packaging, and of course you get the Legendary Edition DLC card as well, the only way to get this otherwise is with the Halo Console :)

I honestly do not think this is going to be widely discounted or available by Christmas due to the size and production run. If it were widely available then it would not be so hard to preorder as stores would be trying to sell at full price.

Anyway, for the small few that can access Bestbuy, and on the offchance they can actually get one, its a great deal but cant help thinking that the fans like me are happy just to know they have guaranteed one somewhere rather than risk release day hunting.

Yeah, same here, hopefully it will change to dispatched on monday to be delivered for tuesday. I've never pre-ordered with Tescos before so i dont know how reliable they are to deliver on release day. loads of people i know have got it early through shops breaking the street date. Unfortuantly those who ordered online have to wait until release day. ah well, least i got it way cheaper than most!


Any news yet? Can't get onto the website as it's down. No money has been taken form my account yet. I'm having serious doubts that we'll get this on release day :(
