Corbulo Emblem ?

OK so I bought the Halo 4 edition 12 months of Xbox Live gold from GAME yesterday & on it states that when you enter the code you get 1 month of gold extra & a Corbulo emblem to use in Halo 4, problem is I redeemed the code & there is no emblem in sight.

I contacted Game & they pointed me to Xbox support, so I contacted Xbox support and they told me to contact Game, so I was wondering if anyone else has had this issue & if so how did you resolve it ?

Cursory google search says that there are two codes if you bought the code from a store. One is for the XBL subscription and the other, on the back of the card, is for the emblem.

Yeah I saw that yesterday, the problem is mine was not a scratch off card, it was a printed receipt in-store with only 1 code on. I had asked for the physical card & GAME said that all stores only had a virtual code to scan & get the code so no physical stock

Then you should've posted in that thread. Or in the thread on this forum addressing the issue.

On topic. You're pretty well fucked. You already redeemed the code. Mistake. Should've been a big red flag when they told you they had no physical cards. Because these promotions always come along with these cards. And if you didn't get the cards, you didn't get the Halo 4 promotion.

Returning it is out of the question. And if you didn't get the emblem code to begin with, you really won't now. That's assuming GAME even had them available to begin with. And it doesn't sound like they did. You got suckered. Speak to the branch manager.

If s/he won't help,

Call microsoft again. Explain it to them. At this point, they'll be your best chance at getting what you're looking for. Wouldn't bother holding your breath though.

It gives you an ingame emblem.

Sounds to me like Game just gave you a 12 months of Live code. The emblem is on the physical card.

I managed to get this, but only on the day of release.

I initially was given the 'Specialisation' leaflet, but with the LE tucked it inside the game and didnt bother looking at the rest of it. I went instore to ask if they had the Arctic BR and Oceanic armour as was advertised, and they all played innocent to it. I know the guys in this store quite well, so one decided to ring up their Head Office or something similar and after about five minutes, said there had been a fuck up and they should have been printed on the reciepts. He managed to jot me down a code which I put in and low and behold obtained the Corbulo Emblem. I now have two spare specialisation codes, and one Arctic Battle Rifle / Oceanic Armour code.

Have not seen this emblem yet, but it does seem like it is an in game emblem.

After messing with the links via Waypoint's stats website I got it to display.



So I take it this is a GAME exclusive?

I work in two different coffee shops (depending if I am at university or not as they are in different cities) both next to game shops. One being GAME and another being an independent game shop I shall not disclose the name of.

GAME are great guys, they give me pre order stuff, posters, T shirts and discount all the time. Its amazing what a smile and an occasional free coffee can do for you

The other shop is the same, occasional coffee and they treat you like a prince. I was given Halo 4 on the 2nd of November as one of the guys doesn't really play xbox games that works there and it was a 'store copy'. Went back in on the day of release and gave it him back with no problems as I had the LE preordered with GAME.

Just reminds you there are SOME nice people about in this day and age.

Here you go buddy; Comes with an emblem and background, when you press X to get the variant it removes the lines inside it.

When I got my LE from EB Games, a couple of the codes that was supposed to come with it were cut out of paper and taped to the one code card.. I thought that very strange.

I'm not sure how successful it'll be as you bought it in-store, but you might want to try contacting GAME using their online Webchat service. It's worth a shot anyway.

I bought this from GAME and there are definitely 2 codes. One for the 12+1 Gold and one for the Emblem.

Question

Hi everyone,

So, this is definitely an in-game thing, this Corbulo Emblem? I just bought 12+1 months membership subscription, and got this. I was hoping this was an Avatar element, but after reading some comments here, I have a big doubt.

I don't have the game, so I wouldn't use it uselessly. I'll give it to a friend if he wants.

Thanks for your reply!

Sorry, didn't see that you asked a question.

No worries. Found an easy way to safely edit profile and unlock everything.
So you are as worthless now as you once were.

Answers to what, exactly? You practically said you had a code that you didn't want or need and may give it to a friend; you're surprised because someone solicited you for a code you clearly don't want?

I don't think there is a "safe" way to unlock all armors and emblems. People all over Se7enSins (a popular modding forum) have been getting banned in recent weeks due to modding aesthetics (the catalyst being going into SWAT without a helmet, rendering no head hitbox.)

My question was:

I had the choice between the 'Call of Duty: BOII' 13 months membership subscription, or the 'Halo 4' one. The CoD one offers an Avatar item, a hat. But I wasn't sure what was offered with the Halo one. An Avatar thing? An in-game DLC? That's why I asked for your help to finalize my choixe.

I said that I had none of those games, so in-game contents wouldn't have interested me. But if this would be so, I would choose the Halo thing, because I know a friend who has this game. I know no-one with the latest CoD.

Avatar props would have been better for me, even if I don't have the game, because we don't need them. So I finally chose the Halo membership because the CoD hat doesn't looks great on my Avatar.

And now I have this Halo code without knowing what's that. Avatar props? In-game item?

That's my question.

Headless Spartans is not a profile or save mod, it's a mod done directly to the game image itself.... very easily detected.

Got'cha. It's an in-game item, in that case.

I understand that. I meant rather that 343i started looking into the whole modding ordeal because the headless spartan got so much attention. People over at S7 are claiming to getting banned by only modding 100% unlocks.
