If you haven't preordered it yet, do so now! It's like 15 bucks off I think, because I'm pretty sure the limited edition was at an MSRP of $54.99.

I would much rather have mine at 12:01 on November 9th. I'll be waiting at Gamestop right after school Nov. 8th. Online things like this will take a while to get to you. And if they have to re-order for a second shipment it will take a lot longer. While your waitin im playing :).

Mine says 42.99.

I probably won't get the LE anyway.

hmmm, never heard of eCost, but sounds like a good deal. I'll probably end up getting it, but then I won't get it for a couple days after launch....hmmm

The site now says 42.99, and even tho the slow (5-7 days) shipping is free, there's a 3.95 handling fee...meh, i'm with liquid, would rather pick mine up the day it comes out than have to wait for it :)

There's something phishy with that 42.99 because earlier this morning it was 37.99.

But I'm with the others, even though I posted this, I'm gonna pick mine up in person on the night of its release.

That whole site sounds fishy. A lot of their customers complained that they hid the UPS tracking order so you would never see when your package was going to arrive. One even said they wouldnt refund his money after the package never arrived. Theres pages and pages of complaints.

I wouldnt recommend buying from this place buy if you want to save the money you better hurry. This just got posted on HBO so the orders will be going quick.

I generally won't ever buy a game unless it's a mainstream on-line retailer...it's just a good rule of thumb.

I hear that. Only place Ive ever bought something online is Amazon, and that was only twice. 1. I hate to wait and 2. When I spend my money I want the product in one hand when the money leaves the other.

I'll drive you there if you can catch my car leaving the school parking lot Nov. 8th. Im gonna be there first in line with a Power Inverter, 20 inch TV, Xbox with 4 controllers, and Halo!

When I pre-ordered X-box Live and Mechassault, i got them THE day they came out. They ship out all the orders at once, so the shipment to the store takes the same as shipment to you home. If you get the good service (which I recommend). Got the game at liek ten in the morning. And why dont you guys just go to Gamestop or EB and preorder it there? I preordered my Special Edition already.

If you pay for the good shipping then theres no deal. May actually be LOSING money. And you would still have to wait for the UPS/FedEx guy. They dont deliver at 12:01 AM. And Ive had my Halo 2 preorder at gamestop for months! Completely paid in full for the LE (except for taxes).

Off topic but oh well, Im hypnotized by your avatar. It ALMOST looks like theres some nipple in there :yikes:.

The reason I ordered on-line was that I was pretty sick and could not drive. SO if you are bed-ridden, then tahts the way to go, but if not just pre-order at your local game store.

i pre ordered my special edition.

10 bux.....its usually 5, but for some reason this time its ten.

whatevers, it not really lost money if its going towrds the game.

Its not. Its better to pre-order than to trust that when you get there, there will be a copy for you. Plus it doesn't cost anything extra.

I dont really need it...Ima just wait for Halo 2 on November 9th @ my Best Buy...its not like Ill never get to play it, and personally paying extra so I can play a game a few hours ahead of my neighbor isnt worth it...

Hey xbocks, its not extra. well i guess it depends on where you go but EB and Gamestop do not charge you extra. Also an interesting tidbit. I preordered ncaa football and my local gamestop is driving to the airport to pick up the preordered copies. so i will be getting my copy like a day early. I'll get my copy at about six pm on monday. HOORAY!

i dont understand why u guys want to preorder it. i mean come on, get it the day it comes out! like a true fan!!! thats the only way to do it. pull out them lawn chairs and blankets and get the coffee mugs, :D

TheHaloMafia

I dont see whats the difference. You get when you get it. Its not costing you anything to guarantee yourself a copy. So its doesn't matter whcih way you do it. I jsut prefer to go to gamestop once and know that its there. not have the possibiblty that i'll have to drive around for the rest of the day. so its doesn't matter. plsu I wanted the limited edition one, so you know.

You could do that OR you could do what I'm gonna do and do that but have it preordered, just for the pride(or lack thereof...) of being the first one to get it!

It takes me twice as long to finish reading the responses.

It's like I hit a reading speed bump or something.

I'm not complaining....

So say after a month or a few weeks when halo 2 is out, would you still be able to get the Limited Edition or is that just a once deal that won't come by again?
