Microsoft confirms three editions of Halo 3 When Halo 3 hits shelves later this year for the Xbox360, the highly anticipated game will be available in three editions, confirmed Microsoft yesterday.
The first edition is the "Standard Edition" which simply included the standalone game. A limited quantity "Legendary Edition" will be released at the same time and will include a collectable Spartan helmet case, a Halo 3 storyboard art and two exta discs full of bonus material.

The "Limited Edition" version comes in a metal case and includes the first extras disc from the "Legendary Edition". Buyers will also enjoy a Halo fiction and art book which features a guide to the game's universe and previously unseen material.


The first disc of the "Legendary Edition" will include behind-the-scenes footage that features a "Making of Halo 3" documentary and early game concept storyboard. Also included on the disc is a special audio-video calibration tool that will let fans enjoy optimised audio and extra high definition footage.

The second disc, exclusive to the Legendary Edition includes remastered cinematic material from Halo 2 and Halo: Combat Evolved, complete with developer commentaries.

Buyers can also enjoy a featurette about a day in the life at Bungie, the game's developer, and see some exclusive content from the artists who created "Red vs. Blue" and "This Spartan Life".

Just go and buy a 360. Problem solved. I have all my bases covered, 360, PS3, PSP. The only thing I don't have is the GC-that used some HGH or better known as the Wii

YA so when it vibrated your eyes would blur and you could get killed, then when you got shot a needle or pin could stick you in the temple or ear. Just to add to the realism

I play on both and i couldnt choose between them. If you don't have anything interesting, funny, or even at all relevant to say then don't bother. Go and start a thread somewhere to whine... It will probably get closed.

Why can't anyone spell?

Why bother with the extra media? All the videos will be on the net within a day of release.

2322.3.2007 5:42

this really p!$$$ me off when game devs do this. y not just release the whole lot on one simple version then you can either choose to watch the naff docs or just concentrate on the gameplay. it's like a directors cut of a film where you pay an extra 10 for 2 " unseen " minutes of a film with 2 extra discs of " special features " that you'd prob never watch in the first place if it was on the orig version.
