Which version of Halo: Reach will you be buying?
Seeing as we got hard details on these recently, I wondered what the general consensus was. You have your standard edition:
Comes with the game disc and some green plastic.
There's the Limited Edition:
A custom case, a lorebook, and an exclusive elite armor for multiplayer
And you have the Legendary Edition ($150)
Custom box, Limited Edition+ everything inside, a 10-inch statue of Noble Team, and a flaming helmet for your spartan
Personally I'll probably get the legendary, though I know in my heart it's not worth it. What about you guys?
Man, you shouldn't have put that last option there. A lot of votes will go to that from haters which essentially makes the poll inaccurate and therefore it loses its point... but...
I'm getting the standard edition, as of now. I don't really know what is included in the others but I really only get limited or collectors editions of games I'm SUPER pumped for. But, maybe. We'll see.
The limited edition looks really tempting to me (assuming I can get myself a job in the immediate future so I can justify it), but the custom case is actually a real bummer to me, I got the limited edition of Halo 3 and I have to keep that metal case on a separate shelf on my game collection from my other 360 games because it takes up too much space. :P
I think I would either go with the Regular or Legendary. There doesn't seem to be much validation for the mid-range model. Not really that excited for the journal. I loved the Limited edition of Halo 3 because it had a second disc with an amazing amount of Behind-The-Scenes video which I just loved.
" I'm honestly surprised that they're doing this again, given that the Legendary Edition for Halo 3 sold so below expectations that stores in my area had stacks of them for over a year and had to mark the prices down by nearly half just to move them all. "There only making them in very small numbers.
OT: I'll try to get the limited edition because I don't really want to spend over £100 on a game, (a hopefully awesome game) but I would still rather not spend that much money.
Limited is perfect for me. Affordable for me, has some really juicy story content stuff included, and comes with a custom elite armor permutation in game. I know story and elites are the minority in terms of fan base, but damn it I want it. I have no room for that statue anyway.
" I'm honestly surprised that they're doing this again, given that the Legendary Edition for Halo 3 sold so below expectations that stores in my area had stacks of them for over a year and had to mark the prices down by nearly half just to move them all. "They didn't sell poorly, just mass produced.
In other countries, especially Europe they were impossible to find rather quickly and fetch quite a price on eBay.
This time, they seem it seems to be a proper limited edition, judging by the fact each unit has an individual number.
They also likely have a better idea of how much they'll sell after Halo 3. It's something that's really only for the dedicated fans.
lol at everyone who's getting Legendary Edition.... just lol....... true meganerd :D
only a meganerd could buy this overpriced plastic crap and 10 years from now look at it and think: (oh im so happy i wasted my money on that plastic junk who has no value today whatsoever)
i mean..... are teenagers and grownups today 6 years old mentally ? :P you need toys bundled with your games to be a happy person ? ok im'a stop hatin now !
but seriously..... LOL
I'll probably get the legendary edition for flaming head. I'll sell the statue or something since its going to be limited to only people who bought the edition, unlike the helmet from 3. The limited has everything i want, but with a head ON FIRE. i will be happy, and not really out any money when i sell the statue.
