@  Delpen9 : (22 July 2014 - 10:42 PM) @Minuette So will this give me 1 or 3 codes? I'm confused.
@  Minuette : (22 July 2014 - 10:41 PM) Promotional codes are 9-digits, you enter it on the destiny site which gives you the real codes of doom
@  Delpen9 : (22 July 2014 - 10:41 PM) @Minuette wouldnt it redeem 3 codes?
@  Minuette : (22 July 2014 - 10:41 PM) @Delpen9 You enter it in the redeem code on the xbox store
@  Delpen9 : (22 July 2014 - 10:40 PM) @Minuette beta codes are only 12 characters. what is this you gave me?
@  Minuette : (22 July 2014 - 10:39 PM) Your ex? No
@  Delpen9 : (22 July 2014 - 10:39 PM) Should I keep the code for myself or give it to my Ex that wanted a code?
@  Minuette : (22 July 2014 - 10:37 PM) @Delpen9 sents
@  Delpen9 : (22 July 2014 - 10:37 PM) :/
@  Connor Kenway : (22 July 2014 - 10:37 PM) I have a beta code if someone wants it for 360
@  Delpen9 : (22 July 2014 - 10:37 PM) @Minuette yes
@  Minuette : (22 July 2014 - 10:36 PM) @Delpen9 It's x360, yeah?
@  Delpen9 : (22 July 2014 - 10:36 PM) The problem isn't getting a code. It was that I was going to give a friend one of my codes.
@  Minuette : (22 July 2014 - 10:34 PM) @Delpen9 I'll give you a code, let me find the page first :P
@  Delpen9 : (22 July 2014 - 10:33 PM) someones going to have to die. the receipt i got when i preordered the game had a code but no one told me anything about it. i think it was gamerewards anyway
@  Sikslik7 : (22 July 2014 - 10:31 PM) I don't think Bungie is even sending the codes to new preorders now always
@  Delpen9 : (22 July 2014 - 10:29 PM) never got an email about this and the bungie.net site wasnt up when i preordered
@  AnimeAddict : (22 July 2014 - 10:29 PM) @Delpen9 your preorder and destiny beta platform dont have to be the same
@  Delpen9 : (22 July 2014 - 10:29 PM) @Ardent Prayer other than that no
@  Delpen9 : (22 July 2014 - 10:28 PM) @Ardent Prayer i had to order the xbox 360 edition of Destiny to preorder the game

No instruction manual in my Halo 4 video game?! Please I beg you Microsoft to allow customers to receive a printed copy of the manual for this game. Paying $60 for a video game is a rip off if its not included. As a video game collector, I feel that the games package, the included game, the manual, and other inserts all combine to create an exceptional work of art.
I will not be completely satisfied with Microsoft products until this is resolved!

Yea pretty much all new games have like 3 pages of a manual. I remember when they were a lot bigger, not to long ago really.

Big thanks to Insignia for the Sig

Why do you need a manual for the game? The controls are in the game itself... Only thing I can see a manual being used for is to figure out the controls... And for something like Halo 4, with a variety of control schemes.... A manual really isn't needed...

Sad how this is the world we live in, no instructions for games anymore. It ****** me off it's like giving the finger to customers who actually like reading a manual.

They were never really that useful anyway except for in strategy or rpg games. Everything is explained to you in-game anyway.

The need of manuals is long gone. Back in the day when games were limited in size, a manual was a great way to explain things such as the controls, story, etc but we don't really have those limitations now so what's the point of a manual if you essentially have a digital copy with your game? Sure it doesn't have pages that you can turn but everything you need to know is in the game itself.

And it's a waste of paper. Most people that get games these days wouldn't even open their manual if one came with their new game purchase.

Also, not having a manual does not make a game worth 'less' for a collector so I don't see why people are getting cranky over the lack of a manual. Just buy the books/comics if you want to read/look at something.

If you think somebody has posted something useful, show your appreciation and hit 'Like'

It's not that the manual is useful, it's the fact of a game having one that just makes it better.

Say, I open up an old video game. Inside, there's the game itself, an instruction manual, a quick-reference sheet, maybe even a little poster. It feels cool to have all that stuff there. When I open a game today, there's a disk in there, maybe a one/two sheet "instructions manual", and a waver with a code on it.

It just doesn't have the same feeling anymore...

343 explained why they did this on an update on Halo Waypoint i think
Writ of Union-"So full of hate were our eyes, that none of us could see. Our war would yield countless dead but never victory. So let us cast arms aside and like discard our wrath. Thou, in faith, will keep us safe, whilst we find the path"

-Ramo 'Talusee- Minor- Crusading Spirit
"All who walk the blessed path will find salvation, even in death. "
