After reading the thread about which will sell more and how many people are reading it I was wondering what Special Edition will sell more? Halo 3 SE http://i86.photobucket.com/albums/k90/crunchgear/January%202007/0088222444449_500X500.jpg
or GTA IV

I honostly don't even know. I guess I'd go with the Halo one, though I'd like to think it's the GTA one. :confused:

You get more use out of the stuff that the GTA IV SE has. Both of the things for the Halo 3 are decoration for the most part and not all that useful other than 'Yeah I have it' GTA IV gets my vote

Yeah, but it's not Cross Platform Super Duper Edition.
It's only PS2.

It's gonna be Halo 3. It already has a lot of pre-orders for legendary.

How much is the GTA one?

That helmet is tiny. If it were life size and I could wear it functionally then yes. But it ain't so I won't.

That's a tough call. Again, going back to the original thread about which game would sell more, Halo 3 will probably sell more on the 360, but GTA will sell more Overall. My vote goes out to GTA. No offense to Halo fans, but I'm going by statistics. I personally, would buy both.

Yeah but I don't think they have a special edition for every system it's coming out for. So even then 'statistic' wise it would probably sell the same or less.

Halo 3 deffinately, GTA looks crap from the trailers so far, nothing special at all

GTA4 ftw. What it brings is useful and I sure hell don't want a tiny shitty helmet especially for a price of 130 dollars.

GTA 4 just because it is multi platform, there are the 3 million PS3 users who got their PS3 expecting that GTA 4 would be a PS3 exclusive so they are going to get the limited edition

You're a retard.

Anyway as far as special editions go, in theory GTA should sell more because the Legendary Edition of Halo 3 is supposedly limited, but who knows just how limited? If you take into consideration the Halo 3 Collector's Edition, Halo 3 will almost assuredly outsell GTA4's Special Edition. If we are just talking GTA4 SE v. Halo 3 LE, it's probably going to be pretty close considering the GTA4 SE is again, multiplatform. If we are just talking on Xbox 360 though, this is a ridiculous question, of course Halo 3 LE is going to sell more.

I really don't understand how you can make this kind of a statement. The trailer was truly spectacular and quite possibly the best looking next gen game I've seen yet. Did you even watch the trailers??? I personally had to watch the first one twice in a row just to believe my eyes.

The H3 one is ridiculously overpriced, but will still probably sell more.

Im gonna go for GTA IV due to its success on both PS2 & xbox i thnk it will be a console seller but i also think halo3 also stands a good chance being one of xbox's bigest franchises. My two cents worth

Depends on how many of each they make. Right now I'd say Halo 3 but then again the GTA one is $40 cheaper than Halo's soooo...... I have to go with Halo 3 for the sheer fact that Halo probably has the most obsessed fanboys(they are the ones who buy these special editions) than any other frnachise.

I believe Halo 3's will.

Unfortunately Halo 3. The fanboys will undoubtedly break the helmet trying to put it on and have to buy a new copy to hide their shame.

They'll also need a laminated copy, but we won't go into that right now.

Halo 3 gets my vote, but I'm not getting the special edition because I think its a waste of money for a little helmet, but I think allot of stuff is a waste so don't listen to me:) and I could use the money to start to put into another game I want

Because if you look it up it even says its a small helmet

Yeah it is very small. I forgot when it was said, but bungie mentioned that it would be a helmet that could fit on a cat's head. I'm guessing that's it's not lifelike, but it's still a good size.

Also, why does everyone think the only thing that comes with the Halo 3 Legendary edition is the helmet?

The first disk will provide:

exclusive, behind-the-scenes footage and videos, including a high-definition "Making of 'Halo 3'" documentary showcasing the Bungie team and its effort to create the most anticipated title in the industry's history
numerous high-definition featurettes documenting the creative design processes involved in developing the game
and even a look at some early game concepts and their evolution through the game's development.
The disk will also include an audio-visual calibration tool, never before seen on a video game and custom designed by the "Halo 3" graphics and audio team to make the most of fans' high-definition home theaters, for the ultimate "Halo 3" and Xbox 360™ audio and video performance.

The second bonus disk, an exclusive to the Legendary Edition, will include:
completely remastered cinematic material from "Halo: Combat Evolved" and "Halo 2," supplemented with developer commentaries, to provide a refresher course on the thrilling "Halo" story so far, and a featurette documenting a day in the life at Bungie.
Exclusive content from the creative minds behind Machinima artists "Red vs. Blue" and "This Spartan Life" will also be included.
Finally, fans who purchase the Legendary Edition will receive an illuminating collection of original "Halo 3" storyboard art from artist Lee Wilson, depicting key moments and pivotal scenes from the epic cinematic production of "Halo."

^^^Read it and weap. Link here:

Considering all that footage, and extra stuff, there is no way in hell GTA will sell more special edition copies. Yeah, GTA has so-called "useful" stuff, but Halo 3 LE holds the greatest expanision on entertainment, which is why we buy and play games. PLUS THERE'S A HELMET AND CASE BIATCH!!!:woop:

I never knew that or heard about that thanks for the heads up.

I think people are misreading the topic of the poll. It's not which game you like most or which one you'll buy, it's which one do you think will sell more copies.

I'm not going to buy either, and am more of a Halo fan than a GTA fan, but the GTA IV limited edition will sell more copies if copies were unlimited since last I heard there have been over 100 million PS2 sold world-wide. Neither are unlimited though, being limited editions so they'll both sell out in no time. Making this topic kind of pointless as the one who wins will be the one that produces the most...

As nice as the GTA IV one looks, I gotta say Halo 3 because of the Spartan helmet.

The Halo 3 Limited Editions will sell more. The fact that you need to buy it if you want the High-Def tools will sell millions of copies alone. The GTA edition is simply for extreme fans.

Wow, and with THAT logic, I guess the winner would be the one with the MOST limited editions. HOwever, I don't think they just automatically have a set number for both games. I think that they take the pre-order number and add 20% or something like that. Because as far as I know, people could reserve copies for Halo 3 and GTA 4 for an infinate amount. I guess the official number comes in on shippiing date. So in the end, I'm thinking the winner will be the one with the most pre-ordered copies. Both will sell all units eventually, but which will have more?

if i had to pick i would probably buy the gta special edition just because of the bag mainly, it looks pretty sweet.

Well, seeing as I'm buying both, there's no real definitive answer. I'll give the nod to GTA, though, just because the $70 version of Halo 3 is much more enticing for a store to sell, in terms of space, and a person to buy, in terms of practicality. I wouldn't be shocked if the Super L.E. of Halo 3 wins, though, because they're certainly going to sell every last copy of it.
