Play.com are offering the pre-order bonuses too.

But Shopto would be the best place to order. They're cheaper than most other online retailers, and the game usually arrives 1-2 days early

Game is offering all three of the pre order gifts.
I personally am pre-ordering from game and when I checked you get the Armour, skull and book.
Also does anyone know if the book is the full 'Halo art of building worlds' or just a short 24 page part.

The mini art book is just a 24 page preview.

Also do you definately get all 3 items from GAME? On the website they're only offering the art book.

I'd also like confirmation that Game are doing the skull and avatar gear before deciding where to order it... Don't want to do Amazon, my last preorder from them arrived a week after launch...

Bump. Still looking for confirmation. Ordering my copy tomorrow when I get paid, and I need to know these things.

So far only mention I've found suggesting that the Game one is a bonus on top of the skull and armour is this:

Exactly what I expected. Good to see. I also love the "halographic" slip-jacket
for the cover.

PS: The guy doing the unboxing video is a PIMP.

for the avatar item and grunt skull you only need to buy a new copy with the sleeve.

I pre-ordered mine from Shopto.net, it came today, Saturday (4 days early)...the grunt funeral skull is handy to use when playing on 2 player legendary co-op....and the avatar armour is pretty cool

Does the avatar armour and skull come with all new copies of the game regardless of whether you pre-ordered or not? It seems strange that the pre-oder bonus is inside the sealed case.

Did everybody get the avatar gear and skull or was it only from certain shops? I'm asking as I got my copy from Play.com and it cost 5 more than it does at Game. I'm trying to work out if I paid more for less stuff as Game had the artbook as well.

I believe the Master Chief avatar and skull comes with every new game at launch. I pre-ordered from Game and the codes for the avatar and skull came inside the case.
