Click here for details. (http://www.gamestop.com/gs/halo3/)

Got a message on my cell phone on my way home from GameStop. There will be three versions of Halo 3. Regular, Collector, and Legendary. No details on what will be in the Collector edition, but the Legendary edition will come with a Halo helmet replica, whatever will be coming with the Collector's edition . . .

and set you back about $100!!

So, who's getting what?

Let the guessing game begin!<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

The Collector's package should be more than enough.

A helmet? The first thing that comes to mind is this (http://www.gasolinealleyantiques.com/celebrity/images/StarWars/sw-case.jpg).<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

I checked out the XBox forums and there are some threads open about this Halo 3 three edition thing. Speculation is that the Legendary set will be a four disc set and will be in a box the shape of Master Chief's helmet.

I once owned a Darth Vader collector's case for the action figures that came in the shape of his helmet. And a few years back, the original Battlestar Galactica series was released in a box shaped like a Cylon helmet, which retailed for $100.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

My genious self didn't see this thread and made a new one...more forum pollution lol aw well. I found out about this at like 4mst and the only people I could call and tell were my mother and Rocks and let them know.

Anyways we'll see but here's a link to the thread I made, its got the amount you have to put down in order to reserve which ever version of Halo 3 that you want.

I found this (http://www.pressstartonline.co.uk/view.php?item=180) while looking for details on the different Halo 3 editions, but it only says what's on the game itself.

It does confirm the exsistence of the three Halo 3 editions and that the Legendary edition is going to be four discs.

Click the above link for more details.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

That's sad. Three editions? The sadder part is, I KNOW there's people out there who are going to buy all three editions http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/disagree.gif

I'm going to be waiting untill about a year after it's release to buy it.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

For me, I'm definitely going to be getting the Collector's edition. Then again, I want to know what's going to be in the Collector's edition versus what's going to be in the Legendary edition. Also, will some of the content in the Legendary edition end up on the Marketplace in the future?<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

I think that Legendary and Collector's editions will have the same stuff, just Legendary will have extra...(the physical helmet) And I don't think you can download the helmet on Marketplace.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

I'll probably pre-order this, when I pick up my copy of Gears of War. Though I'm not sure which version I'm going to get. I'm thinking...the Collector's Edition or maybe the Legendary Edition.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

I read some where that legendary will have 4 discs
one is the game, one is extra stuff (Special Edition stuff), one will have machinma based on halo (RedvsBlue etc), and the next will have every cut scene from 1-3 in HD and come packaged in a Helmet case. I will say where if I can find it again.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

Quote: The Legendary Edition is priced at a whopping $99.99, but the extra moolah nets gamers some protection in the form of a replica of a Halo Spartan Mjolnir Mark VI Helmet, the same headgear the Chief wears. Also included are three bonus discs containing behind-the-scenes videos at Bungie Studios, a hi-res compilation of all the cinematics from Halo and Halo 2, machinima videos featuring Halo, and what EB Games describes as "exclusive gamer tiles & a theme."

Right?<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

What if the helmet turns out to just be the case in which the CD's are in. Would you guys still pay 100 bucks for it?<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

I can get the demensions that corp. mailed to us at the store.

from what I remember it was like 10" tall, and I'm pretty sure that was helmet and the stand together, and the width of the helmet was I think 8.5" But like I said I'll get the stuff from work tomorrow when I go in. If anyone wants the specs.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">
