Just to clarify, before I get to the point of this post, I own a LE copy of H4.
Current word going around is, release of the Specialisations is still TBA, apparently something to do with a certain percentage of game population hitting SR70 (saying majority is such good way to avoid nailing down a number, isn’t it). Also 343i have made no guarantees they won’t split up the Specs & release them a few at a time. The fact that this has been mentioned makes me suspect this is in fact how they intend to release them. Paraphrasing 343i (10 points to anyone who can source & provide a link to the articles), buying a LE copy would be the only way to guarantee early access to all the Specs.
Early access. Well, those of us who bought a LE copy have had our ‘early access,’ as have the majority of players who were able to play on XBL before Nov 20th (sorry Europe, Microsoft clearly doesn’t rate you as important, which is -Yoink-). All the while any gamers who purchase the game now…& non LE purchase European players are locked out of this content. 343i need to step up the plate & release all the Specs to all players, put this matter to bed once & for all…before those who are locked out walk away from the game.
Argue all you want that, “it doesn’t really affect the game that much,” “I bought LE & I haven’t gotten to SR130 yet,” or even, “If you wanted them you should have bought LE.”
A) Still, it affects the game… /argument
B) &? You got early access, 343i never gave a timeframe for this… /argument
C) Limited Edition, in other words, once they ran out, your only option? Purchase a SE copy… /argument
The problem as I see it is that they have not said when and how they will release it. Bungie capped Reach, but they gave the community a common goal to work towards
They have said that people in Europe will not release a code, that isn’t right. 343 dropped the ball here and they need to fix it before they lose a lot of players.
I wouldn’t mind if the guys locked at SR70 had good specializations, Wetwork and Operator are terrible.
Not to mention the unclear issue of the LE console bundle…
Yes a common goal would possibly help. Some confirmation from 343 would help too.
As for the people on Europe my heart goes out to you. I find it appalling that Microsoft has alienated an entire continent.

What LE Console Bundle issue…it was never advertised as being anything more then the LE custom Console and two controllers and a standard copy of the game, the bonus items came with the console
It was just a poor show of planning and management to run a promotion for every Xbox region but exclude the UK and EU just because a few retailers had a pre-order bonus of the Early access, my local retailer stopped taking pre-orders for HALO 4 a month before release…so some had no choice in the matter
I am also a LE owner and at SR130, it was never a factor into why i bought the LE version but so glad I did
Thank you for your efforts, please refer possible discussion on the release of Specialisations here: https://forums.halowaypoint.com/yaf_postst176764_Specializations-for-the-Rest-of-The-World.aspx.
But please do not beg, trade, solicit codes in that discussion.
halo is dead noboy cares anymore and thats the feeling i get from 343 halo 4 was the biggest letdown of 2012 im just filling in the gap for bioshock and new batlefield which are on another level then halo tbf 343 you can keep your codes as by the time there out nobody will be playing
