Why didn't they go for something big this time like Reach? They could of did what Borderlands 2 did and really made it limited, look at how much they go for now on ebay.

 

I can't say for sure, but I think it's because Reach had both the Limited Edition and Legendary Edition. I've heard people say they have a Reach-themed Xbox console, so I really don't know.

I want my unboxing to be special, I won't watch these. Is it just me, or are the big boy gaming review sites getting Halo 4 considerably earlier than say... Halo: Reach? I mean, Halo 4's not due for another 2 weeks. And I haven't seen unboxing vids of AC3 and the like. Maybe I missed something...

:woop::woop::woop: I am extremely excited. I love Ryan McCaffrey. The Jason dude in the first video bothers me with his little comments here and there.

 

Anyways! Seeing as I pre-ordered both the LE Console Bundle and LE, I am super pumped to unbox mine. Especially since it will be my first Xbox 360 Slim. I've been rocking the Elite for 3 long years, I'm due for an epic upgrade! :)

Damnit! I just purchased a new console yesterday, thinking I would not like the Halo 4 console because of its visuals. Now I kinda regret it. :eek:

 

Oh well, a 4th console won't hurt.

 

dude..

 

^ My exact reaction. Seriously dude, wtf?! lol!

 

Seeing as you're already spending $500 (Console + LE), why not drop another $25 on the WGMP and get the additional helmets and emblem? ;) You may not like the look of the helmets, but you said it yourself; you're a collector!

 

Knowing me, I think I'm going to do it :p and that's not even including the Collector's Edition Strategy Guide, UNSC Controller, Tritton Headset & Halo 4 Soundtrack :eek: I feel like I kinda overdid with everything but...well, truth is I have no excuse lol. But since it's my first Slim and probably one of the only Limited Editions of a game I've boughten, I'll let it slide this time. But 343i, don't you DARE do this for Halo 5! Being a collector kills me sometimes :(

It's a Halo game. It's to be expected. ;) You do know there's a Special Limited Edition of the Halo 4 OST too, right? I believe it's for $75. Going to get that too? Haha.

I'm glad someone can see my reasoning behind doing it: it's Halo.

 

And I've read about that actually, I forgot what it brings and whatnot but I'm definitely going to look into it. Probably will not purchase it (assuming I do) until the Holidays, as I've already spent a fortune!

I don't seem to care about the remixes themselves. But the '180 Gram, 12" Master Chief picture disk vinyl of remixes' & '12"X12" Halo 4 Art Print' interest me. The 'making of...' could be great to watch as well.

 

I think I'll hold off on this though, it looks great but I think the regular soundtrack will suffice for the time being :)

 

Thanks for the link, man!

Yes i got the Limited Edtion Halo Reach xbox. I am now getting the Halo 4 xbox cause the built in wifi doesnt work anymore (only worked like 1-2 weeks after getting it.

Plus this time around you get exclusive armor skins and stuff from the console version like FOTUS armor and that stuff. It used to be $399.99 but went down to $349.99

I find it funny how both console unboxings kept saying $400 over and over. These videos must've been filmed a week or two ago, otherwise these guys are a bit inept at keeping up with price changes. The price dropped $50 to $350 sometime in the past week or so at least, if further back than that. I can't remember exactly when I first found out that it had dropped, but it was sometime last week I think...

Seeing as you're already spending $500 (Console + LE), why not drop another $25 on the WGMP and get the additional helmets and emblem? ;) You may not like the look of the helmets, but you said it yourself; you're a collector!

Actually he's spending $450. Reference my above post. And if he's smart he ordered the console off Newegg to avoid sales tax and shipping, and will sell the copy of the game that comes in the console for $50-60 to a friend that isn't as anxious to get it Day 1 like I'm doing. I'm only out $290 for the console and $100 for the limited edition of the game because of this ($350 console - $60 sold copy, + $100 ltd ed copy = $390 ftw).

I ordered my Console off Amazon, and I'm a Prime member so I get free shipping for the items I preorder. So it comes out to $350 exact. As for the LE, that's another $100 right there so that brings me up to $450. I am definitely not selling the Standard Edition of the game, for I am a collector and enjoy the Cover Art for the SE of Halo 4.

 

Also, I bought the Soundtrack for $10, Tritton Headset for $50, McFarlene Series Halo 4 Master Chief and the Collector's Edition Strat. Guide so that puts my total spending to $450 + $50 + $15 + $10 + $25...$550.

 

Which I'm totally okay with spending said amount and I won't let other people's opinions and theories take away from my love of the game and being a collector.
