Forgive this pseudo-blog post, but I’d like opinions on the pre-order purchase I’m making.
I was a little late to the pre-order scene this time around and the places I wanted to order the Limited Edition from had all run out by the time I went. I did pre-order a Standard at my local Gamestop, and I’ll be picking that up at Midnight and attending mainly for the experience.
Since I’ve been watching Halo 4’s development like I did with Reach, I wanted to order a special edition of the game. But Limited is becoming increasingly…well, limited, and there are some additional things I would need as well.
So I decided to purchase the Console Bundle. My reasons being are:
-I need a new controller. Mine is kinda falling apart at the moment, and it would cost around the same price to buy one separately anyway. And the Bundle comes with two of them.
-I’m running out of space on my HDD. I only have 60 GB total with 13 GB left for Halo 4. I don’t think I’ll need to worry about space with a 320 GB HDD. Plus my brother could use the 60 GB HDD instead of his 8 GB USB Drive, and I can give the Gamestop copy to him too.
-My headset is currently being held together with medical tape. I thought about buying Turtle Beaches along with a Limited edition instead, but then I’d still need the controller and extra space. I figure I’ll stick with a standard headset again, as I can run the audio through my massive computer speakers.
-Looked at the Limited Edition content and the only real pros are the special case and the Forward Unto Dawn video.
-The Console looks amazing. The lights on the controllers and the console are blue instead of green, the design looks very unique, AND it makes Halo sounds. What’s not to love?
Again, I realize this is a more personal thread and I apologize if it seems a bit self-centered. However, I’m merely asking for your opinions on the direction I took based on what I needed. Do you think it would have been better to just purchase things more modestly and separately, or was it better to just get the bundle?
If you guys pre-ordered too, what direction did you go?
