Halo 3 Available for Pre-Order... and available to Purchase for As Much As $100

Although Halo 3 might not even hit store shelves until sometime in 2008 (people are speculating that it will be released in 2007, but remember how many times Halo 2 was delayed?), you can still go to any GameStop store and throw down money to pre-order yourself a copy.

Halo 3 will undeniably set the standard for pricey collector’s editions, however. Three unique Halo 3 editions will be available to purchase. One of them will be your typical Halo 3 with generic packaging and packaged in an every-day 360 DVD case. Once you get past the bare-bones edition there is the Collector’s Edition, which we all honestly expected to be released alongside the standard one (really, don’t most big-budget releases get Collector’s Editions nowadays, whether they’re warranted or not?).Although details on the Collector’s Edition are sparse, you can expect the standard bonus DVD filled mostly with drivel you don’t care about and a spiffy tin-DVD case ala Halo 2 Collector’s Edition, Doom III Collector’s Edition, and True Crime: New York City Collector’s Edition. Although you’ll have to plop down an extra $10 for the Collector’s Edition, it doesn’t actually sound like that much once you hear the price of the Legendary Edition. For a staggering $100 you’ll be able to receive special packaging, three bonus discs and a wee-sized Master Chief helmet that will prove to be un-wearable to anyone who doesn’t have a head the size of a grape-fruit.

Unless you’re such a die-hard Halo fan that you dress up as Mater Chief on days besides Halloween then you’ll probably find the Legendary Edition completely unnecessary. Sure, it provides a plethora of bonus content on three DVDs and an interesting-looking helmet, but how good are the bonus features on the DVDs, what is the actual quality of the helmet, and who has one-hundred bucks to spend on one mere game? It’s going to be interesting to see how the two pricier editions – the standard Collector’s Edition and the loaded Legendary Editions – perform at retail though, especially at $70 and $100 a pop, respectively.
