Halo 3 = $130

Forums - Sales Discussion - Halo 3 = $130

They support red & blue enough to host them for free on XBLM. It's free publicity. IMO, the Legendary Pack is just a fancy word for Halo Idiot Tax (HIT for short), because only idiots would by that garbage. I hate Halo in general, but atleast Bungie is making the POS fans pay for their 'loyalty'



Back from the dead, I'm afraid.

Why all the hate? Like someody is making people buy it. Most of you guys would probably happily pay $200 for some stupid Zelda special edition with a super special plastic sword for little baby kids, judging by the amount of Nintendo fanboys around here.

Major difference being nintendo wouldn't release a "Game" with specials for 200$. They might release a collections edition but I don't think I've ever seen them throw it in with the game, it's usually purchased individually. They do have a Zelda sword/Shield 1/6 scale replica(very nicely done actually) but I believe it only cost 35 or 25$ and came with a music CD it didn't come with a game and double the price.



Alacrist said: Read it and weap, Originally rumored to cost a measly $99 US dollars, Microsoft has reevaluated the pricing for the Legendary Edition of Halo 3 putting it more in line with its namesake. The new "estimated" retail price is a legendary one hundred and thirty dollars. Ah, that's better. So, what does the dedicated Halo nerd get for his $130? First, the luxury of owning an item that is promised to be released in "limited quantities" only. Next, two supplemental discs with a "Making of Halo 3" documentary, featurettes, and an AV calibration tool on the first and remastered "cinematic material" from Halo 1 and Halo 2 (a refresher course, if you will) and exclusive Red vs. Blue and This Spartan Life content on the second. Deep breath ... and you get a collection of Halo 3 storyboard art. Now you could always get the standard one for $60.
weep about what? A special edition costing 130 bucks? Thats not the standard one. Sounds like a valid price for all that.



yeah, weep about what? it's called price discrimination. it's a good move on microsoft's part. i actually don't understand why publishers don't do it more often for the stellar franchises. why charge the fanatic $60 when you can charge them $130? learn your high freshman economics.



the Wii is an epidemic.

Man I'm gonna give a big FU to Bungie. Pulling this kind of sh**. 99 Isn't cheap to begin with, you can get collectors editions of PC games for 70 bucks usually. They dissapointed with Halo 2, so personally, as a consumer, I'm not going to put up with such nonsense. I bet they won't even sell the regular game for 60 bucks, bet they up the price. Freaking bast***

Like a demand curve? (You see when you charge more the demand goes down, thus there is usually a price equilibrium that is optimal, and I don't think 130 bucks is it. At that price they will move less units, at a lower price they would probably move many more offsetting the money they would lose at a lower price)



Just read the news and I want to know 2 things: 1) Will the HD content come in an HD-DVD or will they just use a DL DVD? (in other way: how many Halo fans are ready to buy the HD-DVD player "just" for this legendary edition??) 2) How many copies is Microsoft going to ship? Because with the LE of Halo 2, it wasn't that limited

Are you that embarassed to say that you are going to buy one? You shouldn't.
