Limited Edition Scandal

Hey guys, I preordered the limited edition Halo 4, but I’ve been hearing loads of talk about 343i or Microsoft ‘lying’…?

Can someone please explain what is going on because if it means I’m wasting my money, then I’d like to know if I’m losing out before it’s too late!

Limited Edition users didn’t read the fine print. That and the standard edition users who purchase and play Halo 4 before November 20th, will be granted access to the six specializations you can only use when you reach SR-50. Don’t worry about it. People are just over-reacting as usual…

The news was announced today that anyone with a standard edition that plays halo 4 online before November 20th unlocks all 8 specializations which was beforehand only exclusive to limited edition buyers. So yeah lots of people including myself are extremely angry. It basically makes the limited edition worthless.

People were overreacting to not getting the 2 helmets and thinking recruit armor came with it. But the Specialization access isn’t an overreaction, that was a very big selling point of the LE that has just been taken away.

Don’t worry about it, people didn’t read this correctly or didn’t read it at all.

And by judging on how MS handle these promotions, it might take even longer to get the codes. Plus there are prob a lot more catches.
