Unboxing the Halo Reach Limited Edition

Unboxing the Halo Reach Limited Edition

If you're picking up the Limited Edition of Halo Reach next Tuesday, here's what you're gonna find in the box.

Fridays are pretty awesome, aren't they? Not only do they mark the end of the work week, but sometimes you get cool packages for the weekend - like the boxes that showed up at The Escapist HQ earlier today containing the special Limited Edition of Halo Reach. Guess what we'll be playing this weekend!

In case you've forgotten, the Limited Edition contains the game (duh), a cool ONI "black box" casing, and the personal journal of Dr. Halsey, one of the most important background characters in the series. If that sounds boring, rest assured, it's not - there's a ton of really cool background information and sketches in the journal that help lend more character to the Halo 'verse. There's also a neat world map of the planet Reach.

In other words, it's just the perfect thing for die-hard Halo fanatics. Take a look at the journal (and the very atmosphere-setting casing) and the rest above!

Guess what I'm doing this weekend?

The press kit looked pretty awesome on CNet.
One of the main reason I bought the limited edition was for the documentary(like previous games) which looks like there is none. I can settle for that journal.

This is the version I plan on picking up, not the ridiculously expensive Legendary edition.

oh legendary is the one with the action figures in it :D

Thats the version I'm getting.

And I am insanely jealous of you. But then again my store does get our shipments of the game tomorrow...

I have Legendary pre-ordered :D

Also there was a Halo Reach unboxing posted ages ago and it looked sweet.

Nice! Too bad no PC version. F*ck Microsoft.
Still not as impressive as the Russian S.T.A.L.K.E.R. CLear SKy special edition...

Screw limited, Game says my Legendary Edition is on it's way :D

I'm not that bothered about not being able to afford the limited edition (yes I am), but dammit, am I jealous that you guys get the game this weekend!
Bring on Tuesday!

When I read it was going to have Dr. Halsey's journal, that was an instant winner right there. I like the Halo Lore and read Fall of Reach.

Im not looking at any of the journals until after I beat the game.

Got this edition because I love Halo lore. I think I might enjoy the journal more than the game itself.

I really can't wait until tuesday now. Its been killing me seeing the boxes full of these at work, knowing mine is in there but not being able to touch it xD
And the news of the map makes me very happy. I don't know why, but i love it when i get maps with my games.

I think you mean Microsoft. Then own Halo and choose what platform it is going to.

Hmm you are right! Im going to fix my mistake!
Damn I cant wait for 2012 when we get rid of the XboX 360. A new generation of consoles will come and I will get a 360 emulator

I.Hate.You.All.

I want halo reach....

A map? That's pretty fuckin' awesome!

I'm glad I have it pre-ordered. It's the first time I've ever actually bought a special addition of the game. Even my girlfriend is looking forward to that game and journal, and she JUST got into the Halo story (not the game, she isn't too good at FPS's :P).

Tuesday can't come soon enough. I'm glad I got Plants vs Zombies to pass the time.

I have to wait 'til Tuesday to grab mine, and being the úber geek I am I've gone with the Legendary edition. This year I'm going to have spent far too much on games...

Lucky. :(

That is the edition i am getting. Personal the legendary edition isn't worth it for overpriced dolls and an in-game armor effect. It may be worth it to some people though. Looks like I have to wait for Tuesday like everybody else.

So what is in the Legendary edition? is there an unboxing of that?

No PC version no interest.

I truly dislike using console controllers for FPS games.

Oh well, in few years it'll either be on PC or an emulater.

Yep, no real worries because in the end you'll simply end up paying much much less for it and the experience you want out of it.

I considered getting that version but I knew that I'd look at all the fancy stuff once and then never touch it again.

Still looks very nice though, if it was only a little more expensive than the normal one (like Gears of War 2) then I'd probably have bought it anyway.

I have the good old regular edition pre-ordered for me.

The same stuff but an extra armour to download and a figurine of the squad members:

Personally that's not worth the extra £50 ($70?) or so more, but that's just me. Although it's out of stock pretty much everywhere in the UK now anyway.
