  1. HMV UK doing a in-store only deal on the Locus and avatar suit. Read below for more details From: http://www.littleenglishhaloblog.com/ By: FlawlessCowboy HMV are offering the Locus Helmet and Spartan IV Avatar Suit with pre-orders of Halo 4. It's interesting that the leaflet suggests it's the Helmet that comes with the pre-order and not just the skin. This promotion isn't mentioned anywhere on HMV's website so might just be an in-store deal. Big thanks to Dust and Echoes for the tip!

Features "cryptic markings" highlighting "locations for fast cash and other points of interest for the up-coming-entrepreneur". Special Ability Boost- -The special ability bar (gauging use of the main characters' special abilities) will regenerate 25% faster. Stunt Plane Trials- -"Single player Stunt Plane Trials let you take on additional aerial challenges spread throughout Los Santos and Blaine County."

The Collector's Edition includes all of the above as well as: Grand Theft Auto V Security Deposit Bag with Logo Key- -10.75" x 8.5" money bag with a "pop-up style lock and laser cut logo key [...] the reverse side features a pressed Rockstar Games logo on the security mount with a framed ID window."

  4. I pre-ordered Halo 4at Gamestation, and received codes for special Arctic BR, Oceanic armor, Specialization codes. i redeemed them all once i received the game and got the items, except for the specializations. a week back or so, my load outs were reset and now i can not find the items anymore. I tried to redeem the codes again but it says codes already used, which makes sense. I still have not reached level 50, so i cannot unlock specializations yet, but a few days ago ALL specializations were showing but locked, now the first two only show. So i take it my specialization code was reset as well. is this a bug, any body experiencing this? any mods or 343 guys can solve this or tell me who to contact at Msoft or 343, as i believe all codes that i have entered have been reset and are lost as they can't be re-entered appreciate the help
  5. Okay, so I preordered from Gamestop, because it's the only place I could Pre order at at the time.. BUT, I really want the GUNGINR Pulse skin, or the C.I.O Web skin.. Reason why, is because using the codes for those skins, unlocks those armors right away, and I really don't want the Hazop armor.. It looks cool, but I prefer GUNGINR and C.I.O.. So, what I wanna know, is would anyone like to trade their GUNGINR Pulse skin, or C.I.O Web skin, for my Hazop Forest skin?
  6. Ok, i noticed there are a lot of pre-order bonuses from almost everywhere for Halo 4, but are the armor and armor skins ONLY pre-order bonuses or will they be DLC? I don't want to pre-order from 3 places only to find i wasted a lot of money.

  10. After reading a much ranted and winded post about pre-ordering by "pdoffhalofan", I felt it was only deserving that the community stay informed as to what pre-ordering is, why it exists and why and where you can the best bonuses for your pre-order. In short, pre-orders exist so that the manufacturer, not Microsoft, knows how many copies it needs to produce so that production time, packaging and shipping can be completed before the release date. By my estimate according to the pre-order numbers, 343i will have to have Halo 4 RTM no later than October 5th. Bonuses come in all forms and shapes. Most of the bonuses we see, we want. This is natural of coarse, but it is extremely hard to tell which bonuses are available in-game by unlocking, and which are not. To help with this, it is generally wise to assume that any pre-order bonus you get, is unique. Most of the pre-order bonuses you see, are cutting room floor scrapped additions that were removed from the game, for whatever reason. Because of this, 343i and Microsoft offers these tidbits to various retailers worldwide on a first come first claim basis. It IS NOT GREED or mistrust that they are using, they are simply giving fans more content to exclusive retailers, that they can then, pass off to you. That said content usually costs the retailers a bit of cash as each one wants only the most rare and hopefully most sought after add-on. Yet they offer it free, of coarse this is only to ensure you purchase it from them, but at the very least we should be thankfull that retailers are a part of this. Now, as a way for new members or members who have not pe-ordered yet, I think it would be in everyones best interest to post up a link and text of what pre-order bonuses are solid reported to come with editions at different retailers. Now I don't want this thread to turn into a giant Q&A, so please....read all the info posted before replying with new information so nothing is repeated, and people can plainly see what is available. All posts should be in this format.... 1. Retailer Name 2. Game version 3. Cost (mat vary depending on content extra) 4. Date reserved or date reported (preserves content accuracy) 5. Link to the store
  11. Yes, I already know a hundred threads have been made for listing Halo 4 pre-order unlocks, but few (not even from THIS forum!) would tell me what stores offered what unlocks, or the price of their pre-order. I'll do my best to match unlocks with stores and provide images, etc. etc. If you know of another store offering a pre-order package or want to correct me (which I often need to be), just PM me, I usually check the forums daily. By the way, I will only provide inks to images to preserve forum space and retain fair load time for my crappy satellite internet service :wallbash: First, I would like to dish out the store offering the most add-ons, but at the largest price tag - MightyApe. This New Zealand distributor is offering the largest amount pre-order extras, shown HERE, including Raptor and Pulse armor skins, the flippin' awesome Locus helmet (exclusive to MightyApe), and two emblems. This may appear to be the best deal, but if you ain't in New Zealand for the release, you're paying almost $20 for ground rate shipping. It's a little ridiculous, but if it's any consolation, I pre-ordered here, too. The price may drop, and I hope like hell it does. BTW, $130NZD ~ $100USD, so the price isn't actually $30 more. Halo 4 Standard - $88.49NZD + $16.00 shipping Halo 4 Limited Edition - $129.99NZD + $16.00 shipping Probably the most popular Halo 4 pre-orderers (if that is a word) are GameStop & EB Games. Available with both packages is the Gamestop/EB Games exclusive Forest skin, shown HERE. Because GameStop and EB are pretty much the exact same store, you're getting the exact same thing. Rumor has it that EB Games is also offering the Arctic weapon skin in Canada. I believe both stores offer free ground shipping and expensive release date shipping (feel free to correct me), but you can have shipped to a nearby store for free or pre-order at the store. Halo 4 Standard - $59.99 Halo 4 Limited Edition - $99.99 Another great store for pre-ordering any game online is Amazon. Amazon's offer is the interesting Web armor skin, shown HERE. Amazon is also a seller for multiple online stores if you want to look into who's all selling Halo 4 on their store. I know Amazon offers free ground shipping but I do not know their fastest shipping speed or the price of that speed at the moment. Amazon would be my personal alternative to MightyApe. Halo 4 Standard & LE - $59.99 & $99.99 Like MightyApe, Best Buy is offering the Dead Space-esque Raptor armor skin, shown HERE. Best Buy offers free ground shipping for those who pre-ordered online, they can ship it to a local store for free, and you can pre-order it at the store itself with a down payment. Also, pre-ordering here gets you 15% off a game guide if you want one. Halo 4 Standard - $59.99 Halo 4 Limited Edition - $99.99 Walmart is currently offering the Circuit armor skin, shown HERE. The skin kind of reminds me of Tron with a Big Daddy helmet, but overall, not that interesting to me. For those readers in the UK interested in this skin, it can be purchased from Gamestation as well. Walmart offers free ground shipping. Halo 4 Standard - $59.96 Halo 4 Imited Edition - $99.96 Britain's Buy.com, called Play.com, is the only seller of the Dead-Eye helmet skin (HERE), but being an American, this package is not worth the trouble of purchasing from Play. Besides, rockin' this would just put a big bull's eye right on my head, which isn't for me. Regardless of my opinion, Play only ships within the UK and offers free ground shipping. Halo 4 Standard - £44.99 Halo 4 Limited Edition - £69.99 Also available in the UK is the Oceanic armor and a weapon skin pack from Game.co.uk. I'm afraid their website does not denote exactly which weapon skin come with the preorder set, based on the image I can speculate that one of the skins is the Arctic weapon skin that GameStop and EBGames also offered. Game also offers a good price for UK gamers and it ships free anywhere in the UK. Halo 4 Standard - £39.99 Halo 4 Limited Edition - £64.99 Another skin I liked and is already available with the MightyApe package is the Pulse armor skin, shown HERE. The store offering this skin exclusively is Microsoft's game store (also available via xbox.com). Microsoft offers a good deal because they ground ship for free and toss in $25 discount on your next Microsoft store purchase. However, so far the $25 discount card is not available to the Limited Editiion copy, though that may change in the near future. Nevertheless, still a pretty good deal. Halo 4 Standard - $59.99 Halo 4 Limited Edition - $99.99 If you are looking to stay cheap for this release and don't give a rat's cerebral cortex (keepin' it clean) about exclusive armor skins, Buy.com has the best price for Halo 4 I've seen on the internet so far and ships very cheaply. Halo 4 Standard - $54.99 + $5.18 ground shipping Halo 4 Limited Edition - $73.99 + $5.18 ground shipping I hope you guys find the skin that's right for you, feel free to correct me or suggest another store I can add to the list via PM, and thanks for reading!
