Halo; Reach SKU's revealed

EDIT: It has been brought to my attention that Blogger is not correctly displaying sources. On all my posts, if it has a source other than this website or my own mind, If you click the actual TITLE, it will give you a backlink to the original story. Starting now, I will be inserting links since blogger isn't too reliable this way.

This story comes compliments of MajorNelson, since again, blogger isn't displaying "Quotes" either. :( WTB new website.

Revealed this morning, the Halo: Reach SKU's have given players insight as to what they might expect coming from the game.
In the normal game ($59.99), You get the basic game disc(s?), case and instruction manual. But, most likely there will be some pre-order bonus's from everyone's favorite Video Game Retailer.

Also, if you're looking forward to the beta (Starting May 3rd), You will need your ODST disc...but if you don't have it anymore cause it sucked wasn't as good as the hype, you can easily and cheaply pick up a new one.

In the Limited Edition ($79.99), you will get the game disc's (implying there will be more?) in a special case, a special armor set for your Elite and an "Artifact Bag" that contains a Dr.'s journal and some other "classified documents and effects that unravel long held secrets from the 'Halo' universe"...Prolly nothing special. I wanted an art book for once.

And in the Legendary Edition ($149.99), you get EVERYTHING from the Limited edition, and a Statue of Noble team by McFarlane toys. If you are a fan of the spawn models, GOW, or other Halo models, you know these guys are good. Also, You get another custom armor "Effect" for your spartan armor...But everyone whose seen the preview video KNOWS it is the flaming helmet..which kinda screams "SHOOT ME! SHOOT ME!"...Not to mention, I am POSITIVE they will be selling this on the marketplace since they know people won't pay $150, but they will pay $5, $10 or even $15 on stupid stuff. But, is a $70 statue and a flaming bullseye worth the whole amount they want? I don't think so. Send me your comments and thoughts on this! Full Details after the jump!

"Halo: Reach will be available in standard, Limited and Legendary editions when the game launches this fall. Full details on the contents of the Limited and Legendary editions are below:

Halo: Reach Limited Edition - $79.99 (USD)

In addition to the game disc and manual, the Limited edition includes:
  • Game disc housed in recovered ONI ”black box”
  • An exclusive Elite armor set for use in multiplayer modes
  • Artifact bag containing Dr. Halsey’s personal journal and other classified documents and effects that unravel long held secrets from the “Halo” universe
Halo: Reach Legendary Edition - $149.99 (USD) The complete “Halo: Reach” collection. In addition to the game disc, manual, and the complete contents of the Limited edition, the Legendary edition includes:
  • Noble Team statue expertly crafted by the artisans at McFarlane Toys. Individually molded, hand-painted and individually numbered, this statue is a must-have for any serious “Halo” fan
  • UNSC-themed custom packaging
  • An exclusive multiplayer Spartan armor effect

The standard edition of Halo: Reach will have an estimated price of $59.99 USD.  The two special editions will be available only while supplies last and I’ll let you know when they’ll be available for pre-order. Until then, I’ve posted some high rez pictures of some of the items mentioned above.

In other Halo news, Bungie’s latest Halo: Reach ViDoc, titled Carnàge Carnivàle was also released today. We’re only a few short days away from the Halo : Reach multiplayer beta which starts May 3rd. As a reminder, you will need your Halo 3: ODST game disc to participate in the beta."

    AHAHAHAHHAHAHA Extras can SMD. Basic Game = Basic Win

    Who says you need a Flaming Helment to utterly destroy a game?

    "Ohhh look my E-Peen is THIS much largers than yours"

  2. Yep. To me, the flaming helmet is a flaming bullseye telling people where you are at all times making it easier and easier to hit people in the head, you know?
