Default Halo 3 Ultimate Edition $130?!

They must think that Halo 3 is a cure for cancer for that kind of price!

You get two bonus discs and its presented in your very own Master Cheif helmet. I think I would want a case, not a plastic head as a disc holder...

Of course I am right. Thier is no reason on earth to pay 130 bucks for a game. Has that ever been done? The most expensive game I have ever seen was Arc Lad for playstation for $60, but that's b/c it's like big or something. It's still around that price too.

Just as there are plenty of putz that would pay the same price for a special edition of similar caliber for Zelda, Final Fantasy, Metal Gear, Etc...Dont knock someone for however they choose to spend money on their own personal hobbies.

Im definately not a supporter of the price, but apparently Bungie keep promising that it should deliver in terms of content/price. Although im skeptical because bungie promised a kick ass single player experience in halo2, which is far from....

It has a lot in it. Besides if it was a finaly fantasy thing, people would go for it just the same.



Very limited and neat. I preordered the collectors edition about 4-5 months ago ish but I see why huge fans of halo would want the Legendary.

What is Halo ?











It's like they are offering a special edition just like with dvds.. more extras!This is kind of the stuff hardcore Halo fans will be drooling over and it will be something they can brag about through online chat when they go off to play it on Xbox Live.

I always found it sad that halo was so popular. It's like fast food for the video gaming world. Not that good, but highly praised and everyone's consuming it. :B

That price is quite steep, but people will still pay it, though. They're talking about making a Halo movie, even. I know the ideas on the rocks for the moment, but there is a lot of capital behind Halo. There will be a demand for the higher pricey one. People are just that into it.

Think of it like a supersized order of video gaming crap for the masses. Not everyone's thing, but the hardcore nerds will love it. :b

No altering I swear o_o.
