I saw this post in the thread I made about SE getting the spec. early as well an I find it pretty interesting:
I just now pre-ordered the SE from Amazon (using up most of credit to get it for free), while still keeping my pre-order to Walmart. I still haven't decided what edition I want, but I'm steadily leaning to the standa(wesome)rd edition.
Well the LE buyers get early access to 6 Specializations. Standard folks get it too, but they have to wait until the 30th to get their codes.
Like I, and others, have said before to you, it does not matter if the LE gets their codes first if you can't use the specializations until 1-2 months after release. Sorry for sounding mean, but stop focusing on the technicality of what the LE states said. 343i has stated that their plan was to slowly release the specializations once the community reached certain milestones. Microsoft has now stated that anyone who plays MP in the first 2 weeks gets all the specializations. Obviously there is a disparity between the two plans.

It has me thinking, early on 343i seemed like they were planning on keepin LE content limited and now microsofts seems to be the one messing it up for them.
