Halo: Reach Limited Edition details arrive. Will you be buying it?

The first shots of the Limited Edition for Halo: Reach have just landed. Priced at $80, this special version won’t cost as much as the $150 Legendary Edition, but still offers lots of neat extras for Halo fans. The biggest difference seems to be the absence of the 10 pound statue by McFarlane Toys, which will be included in the pricier Legendary Edition. Still, the question remains: Will you be buying it?

- In-game Elite armor set for multiplayer
- Dr. Halsey's ONI security badge

    None of this interests me. The statue looks cool, but there's no way I could find it worth $90. The booklet would only be interested if I were super-immersed in the Haloverse and odds are it'll be scanned and posted on the internet soon enough if I ever do care. Everything else has zero interest to me. I'm glad with my decision to pre-order a regular copy. It gets me a free Recon helmet, which is pretty cool (mainly the free part). I'm actually more interested in the helmet than anything in the Limited Edition and only the statue in the legendary one. PS: A real spartan helmet looked way cooler than the statue does and I still didn't get that.

    Came back here to say I just got backed from preordering the limited edition :) I already have the old halo 3 legendary edition xbox 360, handed down from my brother and still workin.
  • mdhammer - July 14, 2010 10:42 p.m.

    HELL NO,ill just buy the game.
  • Defguru7777 - July 14, 2010 9:39 p.m.

    These have been around for a LONG time! I'll be getting the Limited Edition. The Legendary Edition would be nice, but all it has is a different box, the statue, and the Flaming Helmet. I don't care about collectibles like action figures, and you can't even use the Flaming Helmet in the campaign.
  • Strangleme - July 14, 2010 9:12 p.m.

    Fuck Yea!!! Legendary Edition all the way baby!!!!
  • spideralex90 - July 14, 2010 8:27 p.m.

    The legendary one has an extra piece of armor for Spartans. I'm buying the Legendary with my brother.

    @EvanKHustle Good for you, but I don't care what you think about it. I've got my Spartan helmet, I'll have my statue. I buy this stuff because I like the game and the extra's are great. And by the way, a sculpture like that alone would sell for about $130 or more. I know, I'm into collectibles. It's a great deal.
  • EvanKHustle - July 14, 2010 3:58 p.m.

    So many people wasting their money. Did everyone forget about the spartan helmet they threw away? Are you gonna hold on to all that cheap junk forever or something?? I mean, why exactly do you want all that extra stuff. Sorry, but I refuse to buy anything but the "base model" (how sad is it we have different trim levels now). I'm not sending the message to publishers that it's okay to charge 150 bucks for a game that has 3 dollars worth of cruddy plastic connected to it.

    You can almost see that statues sniper rifle snap off the instant you take it out of the box. I would buy a regular copy, but then again, id need to by a xbox first
  • Bloodstorm - July 14, 2010 10:45 a.m.

    Prordered the Legendary Edition as soon as they announced it, so I've had it preordered for a while. Out of all this stuff, I think Dr. Halsey's journal is the best part of the sets. Just more information to add to the halo lore. I love halo's universe and story and can't wait for the game or the journal.
  • dugfinger - July 14, 2010 9:14 a.m.

    I'll get a standard edition, mainly because those special editions look pretty damn tacky. I like the odd special edition, mainly if it has a cool box or something.
  • SickJessi - July 14, 2010 7:46 a.m.

    I bought Halo 3 Legendary, and was pretty disappointed (with the stuff, not the game). I bought ODST, thinking it might be decent, and was sorely disappointed by a few hours of tedious, slow-paced, lame gameplay. I got to Reach, and now I just can't be bothered to give a ....

    You're missing an answer. None of the above.
  • GamesRadarTylerNagata - July 14, 2010 4:40 a.m.

    @tyler7196 I believe you're talking about the Legendary Edition. Today is when the Limited Edition shots arrived. But thanks for the advice.
  • flare149 - July 14, 2010 4:11 a.m.

    The part of me that thought Halo was fun sorta wants to go for the limited edition, but I really wasn't impressed with the Beta. The single player seems like it will be fun, but I've already got money put into Move and GT5 Collector's Edition, so I'm not really sure what I'm going to do. In all honesty, I wish I could get the regular game with the statue and not the other stuff (aside from the in-game items of course). Idk, I may pre-order it on Amazon but then not buy it until I can get it for cheap. After all, you can get the Halo 3 Legendary edition for $60 now on Amazon so..yeah I'm waiting
  • Samael - July 14, 2010 4:05 a.m.

    Yup. Preordered the limited edition yesterday. Can't wait to read Dr. Halsey's journal. I know 90% of the world hates or seems to hate the Halo storyline, but I've never understood the rage. I've loved it from the beginning and will continue to love it in Reach. But uhh...these pictures have hardly "just landed"...they've been around for quite awhile now...
  • WhiteCoco - July 14, 2010 3:54 a.m.

    Limited sounds good. The figures don't interest me and they'll probably end up as paperweights.
  • Ridgley - July 14, 2010 3:51 a.m.

    Why do I want this so bad?
  • Limbo - July 14, 2010 3:43 a.m.

    150 dollars is so much....but it's the last Halo Bungie will ever make. Plus all of my friends are getting Legendary, and I wouldn't be able to stand their flaming helmets if I didn't have one. I'm probably going to pre-order Legendary Edition from Gamestop so I get every armor possible. It doesn't seem worth it, but seeing as how I still play Halo 3 after several years, it just might be.
