Why oh why are people paying over 20 for a code that earns you 3 maps, when they are actually worth just over 5(800 points) or you could just spend the extra 10 on the LE version and get the satisfaction of owning a limited edition game?

If I sound like an ass when i say this im sorry thats just how my wording comes out sorry again.

Well the LE owners also got the little badge the stickers(gamestop exclusive?) the cards, the comic book that is actually worth more then 10 i think. The tin case, the plastic box which is different then the game. So with all of it combined we probably paid 5 for it anyways. So they are overpaying :D :D :D :p :p :p

Also how are the maps collectibles? Not really.

EDIT: For some reaosn i think someone is gonna call me out for some reason on the 5 thing cause im american but I have some good friends that are in edinburgh and Nottingham so I know alot of the stuff.

EDIT2:PLUS you get the official prima hint book with halo wars LE(gamestop exclusiv?)

we get the patch, cards, book, plastic sleeve, map/wraith code for around 5-8 extra depending on where you go. and they could be collectable if they revall it.

I've seen those too. I've seen some posted for over $100. No bids though, lol. People are willing to pay up to $50 though for the 3 new maps. I've been checking, but I'm not willing to pay more than what they'd probably be sold for on the Marketplace.

I really want the maps, but I don't see myself playing Halo Wars, so I've been messaging all my online friends if they could spare or sell a code and so far none of them even have the game.

You're pretty stupid if you buy it for 20 Dollar because you could have just gotten the Halo Wars LE and get way more for your money...

Ow, and for the poster above: Wait, wut?? Asked if they could ''Spare a code'' ?? I don't even see poeple selling them to be honest, but giving them away?? Wut??

For the UK LE version, we got: Game, Steel box, Comic book, Rubber beer mat/patch thing, Art Cards and the big plastic sleeve to hold it in. Most places had this for 45. I wish we got a prima guide with it and some stickers :(

lol wow you can really sell the maps for that much? im pretty tempted to sell i'll be honest. I love rts games so i bought halo wars, and i got the LE simply because im a tool and will buy any piece of junk if they stick limited or collector edition on it.

i am an achievement whore tho.. and these maps would lead to achievements.. very tough choice.

Simple way of cheating microsoft so you can DL the maps twice.

1. Recover account of the owner who has the code on your xbox.
2. Use the code and download on your xbox. This makes the map work for anyone using the xbox.
3. He recovers his account back on his xbox then redownloads it through his history. This makes it so the map can only be played on his account though.

At first I though it was americans who didnt want to wait the extra couple of days to get their hands on the mythic pack and so were buying european codes but since the game is now released over there and theres codes still going for around 20 then I can only imagine people have more money than sense.

I use the patch on a daily basis. Have my coffee cup on it.
The rest i gave to my brother after reading the comic.

And i took the maps OFC.

Then there would be no point in having it! Christ that was a pointless post.

The guide was about as big as the little game booklet with controls and stuff. Its just a hint book and its only for the second level not to big a deal. The stickers are ones you stick on walls and can take off. They are of the elite and spartan and are only like 8 inches in height. Still cool. Both of those were gamestop exclusive though.

It's hilarious isn't it, I don't own Halo 3 so i sold my maps on eBay and got 20.99 for it. I thought those people were idiots too and so did every one i told, I had a 25 GAME voucher when i bought Halo Wars so basically i got Halo Wars: LE for 25. =D

probably because they do not want to get halo wars, dont know why though i like halo wars and have special edition, although am not using mythic maps cuz i like having 1250g on halo 3.
