Update: They did have the Legendary Edition, but I showed restraint and bought the Limited Edition instead. With the LE I got a $25 gift card, an Intec Camo Headset and a large cardboard Reach poster. Gotta love launch day!
Halo Reach is released tonight at Midnight, of course I will not be waiting in line. I waited in line for my cat helmet years ago and didn't even play the game when I got home. Having to be up early because you have a job is a blessing and a curse. Anyway.... tomorrow is the day. I pretty much talked myself out of the Legendary Edition a long time ago, until last night. I know that if I happen to see that version sitting on the shelf I will end up getting it. But $150?!!! That is half a new xbox, A new Wii, 150 McDoubles....
I was thinking last night about how we are really buying a license to play the games we buy and we never actually "own" the game. i.e. cannot make copies and you really are not supposed to let anyone else play it. You own the disc and case, but not the data on the disc. If that is the case how is selling used copies games legal? Are the licenses transferable by law? I know I am wasting too much brain power on this, but I am curious. The same could be applied to used CD sales, but that is a whole other topic.
I was still on my launch console until a month ago when it finally red ringed :( I got nearly 5 years of use out of it. That being said, thanks to the Gamestop promo I got the last slim they had for $175 after trading in my 20 gig drive, wireless and one controller.
The new 360 is the real deal. Quiet, faster connection, seems zippier for some reason.
