    “War Games Map Packs – Nine multiplayer map packs for free download”
    A bit confused by this line, since I would doubt that Microsoft would plan nine map packs for Halo but I could be wrong if it means another deal like Gears of Wars DLC plan or MK’s character downloads then the collectors edition for Halo 4 might just be worth the price. Can’t really say I’m interested in the animation or specializations though

      This is what Joystiq has on their site:

      “The LE includes the “War Games Map Pack,” a voucher for “three future competitive multiplayer map packs, each including three locations, available for download post-launch on Xbox Live.” It also includes early access to six multiplayer Specializations, which will only be released at launch in this package; they’ll be “released over time” to the general audience. ”

      Basically getting the LE nets you the next 3 map packs (9 in total) for free.
      and by animation I assume you mean the live-action series… But Still, not seeing a package worth $100, unless they plan to charge COD prices for DLC..

         Well most halo map packs were usually 3 or 4 maps at about 1200 MSP or about 14 or 15 dollars; rough estimate when 1600 msp is $20

    That box looks really fancy, but a bit too expensive, and all the bonuses seem to be geared toward multiplayer, which I won’t play. Also, I assume the live-action web series is also going to be distributed online for free, like the Bright Falls episodes for Alan Wake.

    I guess the hobo edition will be enough for me.

  • SirRichard

    That seems quite pricy for what it’s offering, though that box is pretty cool. Might just stick to the regular version.

    A $100 dollars? those gamestop signature editions they have more stuff in them this. I’m thinking that this isn’t the “full” limited edition yet, they’ll probably throw in a spartan helmet or so something like that closer to the release.

  • Guest

    I thought we were done with Halo

  • Luna Kazemaru

    I will have to wait and see what gamestop is throwing in with the LE before I throw that out there.

  • Solomon_Kano

    I haven’t touched my 360 since… October? October, I think. This here though, I HAVE to get. Halo really is the only 360 series I enjoy.

    Not getting this LE at launch though. There were STILL copies of Reach’s LE at my local Best Buy earlier this year.

    • Daru Titor

       Yeah, I ended up buying Reach’s Leg. Edition for $50 last year.
      I kept the journal and statue, sold the game for $25.
      This was at Future Shop BTW.

      The previous year I had bought Halo 3’s Leg. Edition for $30
      @ a Walmart, kept John’s head and sold the game for $20.

      Those were good times.

  • dahuuuundge

    I don’t care for all the supposed “premium” bonus digital content. I do love me some good old metallic case. I have not touched my 360 in almost 2 years now, but I will preorder this just for that sexy metallic case.

  • Darkrise

    I like metallic cases but considering what the ED has to offer, the price just turns me off. I’ll probably stick to the regular. 

  • Lancevfx

    Inevitable price drop coming soon..

  • $100 for all this? No thanks, only a complete idiot Halo fanboy would buy this and that seems what Microsoft is targeting with this limited edition. =/ The Darksiders 2 collector edition is worth $100 dollars.

    • he didnt include evrything, it comes with a metel case, it is the extended forward unto dawn a brief case with codes, access to the customisation classes weopon skin, armour skin, armour (chests,helms etc)

  • Well, since the average price on my country of any normal game is $75 USD, paying an extra of $25 for the maps + all the other things looks pretty good for me.
