Halo 3 Legendary Edition Packaging

Responding to some of the reaction to the $130 price tag for the Legendary Edition of Halo 3, Frankie gives some background on the package, while assuring us that it's all "smiles and sunshine." Microsoft put out a press release this morning, and finally revealed the awesome new packaging for the Legendary Edition of Halo 3, along with the red-faced admission that it’s going to be $30 more expensive than the estimated retail price used by retailers for pre-orders. Much as they telegraphed the fact that this price and content could be subject to change, it’s fair to say that these things usually don’t change. So apologies for that, but I think hardcore collectors (at whom the Legendary Edition is squarely aimed) will be pleased with the end result. The thing is truly lovely in real life, from the finish of the helmet itself, to the operation of the box and its sleeve. It reeks of quality and attention to detail (as it should at that price) and for fans, it’s probably worth every penny. Of course, nobody’s forcing this price on you, and you can always buy the regular or Limited Edition and forego the thrill of your very own Spartan helmet. And for those of you who felt like it was a bait and switch, I can tell you from our involvement in the project, that’s not the case at all. This was always a tough thing to price and pin down, since it had simply never been done before. You can read more about the ambition, scale and love that were poured into this collectible next week, when Sketch brings us a report from the designers and manufacturer of the Legendary Edition, complete with photos from the artisans and the factory itself and an in-depth explanation of the kind of quality processes used to assemble it. ... The other froth was caused by the revelation that the Limited Edition would contain one piece of content that isn’t in the Legendary Edition. Well, don’t worry about that at all. The Legendary Edition purchasers will be pleased to know that they will not have to live without that content at all. More on that later (some of the details are still being worked out), but it should be smiles and sunshine. Seriously. ...
