    Microsoft and Bungie have announced the full details behind the highly anticipated Xbox 360 version of Halo 3. There will be three three-edition releases of the game. First the limited Legendary Edition, now priced at $129.99, will provide two bonus discs with the game, the first of which will include both a HD 'Making of Halo 3' documentary and an audio-visual calibration tool "custom designed by the Halo 3 graphics and audio team to make the most of fans' high-definition home theaters. The second disc, exclusive to the Legendary Edition, will include remastered cinematic material from the first two volumes in the Halo series with developer commentary, as well as some exclusive contents. Next the Limited Edition of the game, set at $69.99 will come more modestly packaged in a metal case, and will include the 'Making Of' bonus disc seen in the legendary edition, as well as a Halo fiction and art book which serves as an 'elaborate' guide to the Halo universe with new art and story elements. Finally, a Standard Edition will be made available to consumers for $59.99 that will consist simply of the Halo 3 game with no bonus discs, books, or features. No release date was revealed in the edition information, but Halo 3 is expected to launch in fall of this year.

    You think 130 is a lot? The 100+ games aren't for the faint of heart. Its for the hardcore. Which is why I have one reserved. Can't wait for it to come out.

    I'm just going for the Normal Version ($59.99). Last time I bought a LE Game I didn't touch the "Extras", so it's just normal for me.

    You all know why they do this shit right?


    First most people will be outraged that they are charging so much.


    Then there will be some calming down.


    Then a few will profess to want it.


    Then it will be mostly acceptable.


    Then most will "come around" to the idea.



    Then it is OK, to fuck the consumer up the ass.

    Hell, I thought about it. OEM games. One 360, one account. But then that would be like a PC game. Where we all get screwed anyway. Ever seen a PC game for rent? Console games now........


    All of it is quite silly if you ask me.

    I'm sure many will still be buying Halo 3 despite having a high price tag.
