Site doesn't work for me. Will that be a special order, or just we order it at our nearest game store? Like usual.

Heck, I'm excited.

oh its like a preorder from eb games (eb games is owned by gamestop so if your country has gamestops than go to their site). Gamestops site doesnt have the limited edition for some reason...

Purchasing DLC ahead of time? This is just a CoD Elite copy, terrible development for games.

If you notice, it's mostly just a bunch of extra crap for multiplayer, which makes me care even less about this game than I did before.

And to answer that question, you get the maps free as they come out, after the release. Not all at once at launch.

I see what you mean, but Halo is mainly played around its MP, so thats why they put so much extra stuff in their. People play SP maybe about 5 times at tops when they own the game, but MP is where people play at.

It's not really a CoD Elite copy considering it's not a monthly subscription. 343i is just trying to gain the trust of a very fickle fanbase.

I wonder if Gametraders will have it...

Probably not. As far as I know, they're a pretty small company. Might have to rescind that order.

343's version of Call of Duty Elite, a waste of an extra 30.00; Sigh*, they need to come up with something worth the extra money because this is just getting annoying... not spending an extra 30.00; It's just my opinion!

What? How is it a version of CoD Elite? It's not a monthly subscription!

People need to stop comparing this game to CoD - CoD is an EXTREMELY awful game, at times it CAN be fun, but it does not make it a good game.

And oh, some service comes out called Elite and everyone jumps on the wagon of comparing other games "packs" or services to it... A LOT of games usually give you map packs early if you buy a more expensive version of the game, it's nothing new.

Gosh..

if your gonna compare CoD with something, then compare Infinity Ward vs Treyarch. and do it somewhere else, while your at it.

and wtf really a full length live action movie? what is it with video games doing LA crap. A 90 minute movie of cutscenes that are ingame would be better. Especially since then they could keep the VA's and faces the same. honestly when it comes to cameo appearances of MC and badly represented characters played by unknown actors all I can say is DO NOT WANT

The 90 minute movie is what had me. Just going from the production values of the live action stuff in Halo game previews and such, It makes me very excited to see what 90 minutes of it will be like :) Though I may just wait until it is available to be pirated instead of spending 100 bucks xP

This isn't a copy of Call of Duty's crappy service to steal your money. You do realize there will be at least 3 map packs, yes? Which are usually $10 each? So you're technically just preordering the DLC. And the rest of the stuff that comes with this edition is basically free. Maybe read before you shove your foot so violently into your mouth next time.

well, you have yet to come up with a counter argument to the above people..Which leads us to believe you dont have one.
you dont have to call people kids because they disagree with you.

It's just my opinion, this isn't even an argument, i don't want people to believe me, to be honestly i don't give a crap; I just think this would be a waste of money and isn't worth spending that much on a game... my opinion, not meant to be offensive.

The one thing I really want is the Infinity Briefing packet- I'm a fiend for canon and statistics.

I don't use Xbox live anwyay, so the rest of the stuff is crap for me. I prefer to play Single Player- might save up on some of those two-day xbox live vouchers though.

I hate when limited editions are mostly comprised of virtual ingame items, they don't mean squat. I'd rather another figure / statue or helmet than some digital items that'll be useless when halo 5 comes out in another year or two.

Hopefully two years. I don't want annual Halo releases- it'll lead to a COD state of mind, where they recycle tons of models.

I agree. It'd be good if we got something like Halsey's journal again- hell, I'd love for a strategy guide to come out with it. I woudn't use the walkthrough, but I LOVE strategy guides.
