Reply Hadigan_33 November 15, 2017 yup amazing system Reply Dimingo November 15, 2017 To be fair, this pre-order involved physical goods which have a history of being supply constrained (the console). Reply BlazingSlash November 15, 2017 Still have mine! It was my first 360 after being an early adopter for PS3. Halo Reach was easily one of my favorite multiplayer experiences of all time. Reply Pickle_riiickkk November 15, 2017 My wife and I dusted our copy of reach off a while back and played some firefight Still a great game after all these years. I just wish bungee had taken a different emotional approach to the story. Reply deathbatdrummer November 15, 2017 I didn’t know they made a reach version! My personal fave is the Master Chief colored one,I wish I had one 🙁 Reply AJEstes November 15, 2017 I still have my Reach Edition 360 lying around somewhere. It was a gift to myself after I completed Basic Training. Fun times. Reply ShannonM24 November 15, 2017 Honestly I thought Reach had the best multiplayer of any Halo I played. I absolutely loved SWAT. Reply Diocleatian November 15, 2017 Amazing game for an amazing system, great days of multiplayer and fun, good grinding for awesome armor. Reply Pandaonparole November 15, 2017 Only thing I regret not pre ordering was the Skyrim with the dragon statue. Reply Calx9 November 16, 2017 Preordering special edition games and consoles with special designs and physical content is obviously fine to do. They are ***actually*** limited unlike preordering a digital game… That has unlimited copies…….. Reply Baja_Califas November 16, 2017 I still have the same one. Reply Jonmva703 November 16, 2017 360 was an Amazing console besides the red rings of death. Reply SpaceManMethodHead November 16, 2017 To this day, I still haven’t made a preorder. Reply PoeGhost November 16, 2017 The only pre order I ever made was for Space Marine. No regrets. RIP THQ Reply OmnifariousFN November 16, 2017 i have that console, it makes halo sound when you push the power and eject buttons. fave console!

Reply flippitydip November 16, 2017 only game I ever pre-ordered was torchlight 2 just for the pre-load Reply captainedwinkrieger November 16, 2017 I made my ring blue on mine. Reply Veritas3333 November 16, 2017 I’m still annoyed that not only did my TitanFall XBOX one not have a special paint job, it didn’t even come with the Titanfall controller that they sold separately! It was just a regular xbox with a regular controller and a download code for Titanfall. Reply diego97yey November 16, 2017 Is this the halo where they added those shileds and power ups you can deploy Reply ThePiePieper November 16, 2017 Hurts me every time I think that Reach is the only one not to get a remaster. Reply Isingforasspixs November 16, 2017 Mine was the titanfall 1 collectors edition with the huge atlas statue, and watchdogs collectors edition with the aiden pierce statue. Reply Lync51 November 16, 2017 I definitely need an Xbox to finally play Halo again Reply Anonymonynonymous November 16, 2017 [picture of box] Reply smilinreap November 16, 2017 Pre order Monster hunter then. If you want some guaranteed satisfaction *bow chika ow wow* Reply teej1109 November 16, 2017 I did the same! I got red rings like a week before it came out and I got the last one in the store. Reply Avacadont November 16, 2017 The only pre-orders I have made were for Super Smash Bros Brawl and Bioshock 2, shiieet they were good Edit – I can’t type Reply McKynnen November 16, 2017 My god comparing Halo Reach to Destiny 2 isn’t even a contest Reply Goku_uses_Spoons November 16, 2017 Ayyy I still got this shit too Reply Cool_Christopher November 16, 2017 I’ll go back even before that. Halo 2 pre-order. My first and only, back in the day when you were actually worried about finding a game. Reply Floggered November 16, 2017 You’re a lucky guy. The only game I’ve ever pre-ordered was ODST. 13 year old me really wanted that Johnson playable character. Absolutely wasn’t worth it. Reply CantCatchMeUnawares November 16, 2017 http://www.tattoo.com/sites/default/files/u8050/no-ragrets-temporary-tattoo.jpg Reply faced88 November 16, 2017 That awesome custom sound when it booted! Reply Bastard_Saint November 16, 2017 Good game good call. Reply CodyCus November 16, 2017 I pre order every single Pokemon game for the 3ds and never been burned either. Reply heebro November 16, 2017 boycott EA, dismantle Origin Reply thehypotheticalnerd November 16, 2017 I’d also like to mention that the Limited and Legendary Editions of Halo Reach ofbthe single beat collectors edition set up a game has ever had IMO. It was a tiered system with only three possible versions each including everything the previous tier had plus more. * Standard Edition * Limited Edition * Legendary Edition The Limited Edition cost only $80 and whereas nowadays that usually amounts to bullshit digital content like a short bonus mission or cosmetic skins or slight gameplay buffs, that twenty dollar increase got you a special in-universe ONI black box that contained the game, a physical in-universe journal written by a major character of Halo lore (Dr. Halsey) with a bunch of inserts such as files an ID card, and a couple of physical patches. It also included some digital bonuses such as a special helmet and outfit for an Elite; nothing that broke the balance of the game. For even more money, you got a bigger crate that held a collectible statuette of Noble Team which from what I’ve seen, isn’t too shabby and looks pretty decent compared to some other collectors editions. The Fallout series has had some good versions too but I’m not sure of they were as good value wise. Pip-Boy Edition was great because, again, in-universe stuff is much better than pithy digital content but it cost $120. Still not as pricey as other CEs out there. I wish I had gotten FO3’s CE as well — an in-universe lunchbox, a different Pip-Boy (an alarm clock and not wearable afaik), an in-universe bobblehead, etc. Besides that, most CEs and preorders have not been worth it from what I’ve found. Reply acherem13 November 16, 2017 People give it a lot of shit but I fucking loved Reach. I played the original multiplayer on school computers with classmates and played 3 on my friends Xbox 360. Reach was the only one I owned and I absolutely loved the addition of powers. I mostly usetd active camo and the clone thing. I tried out 4 when it came out but something about the camera in it just felt so off, also the color palate was a huge eyesore for me. Reply gigoloJack82 November 16, 2017 my first and last preorder was company of heroes 2, did’t enjoy the campaign much, but play skirmish to this day. Reply cryptum001 November 16, 2017 Best system I ever owned. Had to make repairs at points but mine still runs beautifully. Reply TrollMan64 November 16, 2017 I can count the pre-orders I’ve made on one hand, and I’ve been happy with all of them. LittleBigPlanet 2 Portal 2 SSB4 (3DS) Super Mario Odyssey Only when I was 100% sure I’d love it. Reply afrokaptain November 16, 2017 The music still haunts me till this day Reply a11gz November 16, 2017 What about ragrets? Reply Flipiwipy November 16, 2017 Only one preorder ever. Switch + BotW. Probably will never preorder again, but I was Uber hyped for that (and thoroughly enjoyed it) Reply Duck_on_Qwack November 16, 2017 Reach was trash compared to Halo 3 Reply MrCherryDood95 November 16, 2017 What a beaut. Reply TheSilentArt November 16, 2017 I have mine under my bed in a box since I have a 1 now. I will never part with it Reply Doc_Destructo November 16, 2017 I feel like preordering consoles is a lottttttt more acceptable than games because stores actually quite frequently run out of stock. Now that games are mostly bought digitally, there isn’t really a limit on the amount of purchases. Reply Jacobro22 November 16, 2017 I didn’t get the Xbox, but I got the limited edition one that came with Halsey’s journal, one of the best purchases I’ve made. I still remember counting the days until 9-14-2010 Reply ShaunDotCom November 16, 2017 I never preordered it.. But I bought this a few months ago because I always wanted this xbox. I think $72.50 was a steal. Reply conandy November 16, 2017 I’ve never regretted any Nintendo preorder. Reply NoJumprr November 16, 2017 MW2 for me. Freshman year me and 5 buddies all preordered the game. The day finally came and 3 of my friends were Juniors so they went off campus at lunch to gamestop and brought all our copies back. I’ll never forget that visual of them walking up to our spot with pure gold in their hands. Reply lytss November 16, 2017 With two controllers… When coop mode were still alive Reply FuckM0reFromR November 16, 2017 The only thing I’ve ever pre-ordered was GTA3. I wish I could feel those feels again :D… Reply set_teh_record_str8 November 16, 2017 I preordered the Halo 4 special edition console. *[swank](https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/81fE18rFPeL._AC_SX430_.jpg)* Reply Jamse1199 November 16, 2017 I had that’s still do but it’s broke still keep it around since it was such a good console Reply FettkilledSolo November 16, 2017 Still have my Halo Reach 360, beautiful piece of hardware. Reply Anceps19 November 16, 2017 I preordered the $100 edition of halo 4. Worst. Decision. Ever. It was the first and last game I ever preordered. Reply Dragofireheart November 16, 2017 I pre-ordered the Nintendo Switch. Reply Zmac122 November 16, 2017 I always thought Halo reach was the start of the franchise going to shit. Glad others had fun with it. Reply Underwhere_Overthere November 16, 2017 Demon’s Souls & Dark Souls had awesome preorder bonuses. They included an art book, soundtrack CD, and a metal case for no additional cost, just the standard $60. Dewy’s Adventure had something similar in place. If you preordered you the game you got the plush toy for free. Unfortunately that toy was better probably better than the game as a whole. Funnily enough this game released the same day as Halo 3. Reply King_Rhymer November 16, 2017 To be fair. It was the last good halo Reply MrFrostyBudds November 16, 2017 The only person order I ever got was destiny and to this day I still get Scholl’s at how fast that game fell😪😪 Reply Arclight209 November 16, 2017 I miss the old days where a pre-order came with some statuette, or some physical memorabilia that showed that you were a fan, instead of a multiplayer map or a weapon skin. Same with collectors editions… Reply bballjosh11 November 16, 2017 Halo Reach is also an example of great progression unlocks that actually made you feel “a sense of pride and accomplishment”. I really wanted that lightning effect on my armor so that I could show it off to everyone else, and I kept playing and playing until I finally got enough credits to get it. Once I had it, I felt an amazing sense of accomplishment and if anything it made me more of a target with this ridiculous crackling glow. Reply Sithslayer78 November 16, 2017 Aw man but the legendary edition was so good tho. Sometimes I still like to pull Halsey’s journal out to read it and it still has that new game smell! Reply youniqa November 16, 2017 I still have mine Reply joster121 November 16, 2017 That game was so good. I’d pay $60 if they put that on pc Reply woowaa44 November 16, 2017 I started to preorder gta after it took a week or 2 to get gta 3 lol Reply ThyOgrelord November 16, 2017 Reach was sick Reply coldbattler November 16, 2017 This was my first personal console purchase(ie not my parents) I was so happy to get it I went onyx every ranked season they had until they dropped the rankings. Reply mightymorphineranger November 16, 2017 The only preorder I ever did was the half life 2 release for pc. With counter strike, portal, team fortress a strategy book, some posters and stickers. a hat and t shirt. Totally the best preorder ever and also not just some bunk ass money grab. Halo would have been a good one too Reply Personzoo November 16, 2017 Yeah I pre-ordered a switch and havn’t regretted that so far. Its the games that you can download and won’t have supply constraints that you shouldn’t pre-order. Reply captainstaircase November 16, 2017 I pre ordered GTA 5 when it first released on the last gen of consoles. My dad is really into video games, too, so I skipped school and we played it all day Reply Irbricksceo November 16, 2017 I only pre-order when it meets two criteria: It must be a physical special edition (and come with a bonus I want), and two: it must be a game I know I intend to play. I have the special edition of xenoblade 2 coming up for example Reply nRenegade November 16, 2017 To think this wasn’t even a decade ago. Reply gailson0192 November 16, 2017 I have the halo 3 version Xbox elite. Still use it xD Reply MusketeerLifer November 16, 2017 I’m jealous. Arguably my favorite story of the Halo franchise. Love Master Chief, but Reach made me feel every loss… Reply mrjezail November 16, 2017 Literally one of my favorite memories is waiting for this games release at midnight with a friend. After we picked up the game we took a 4 mile walk back to my house and finished it that night. 10/10 definitely would do it again. Reply MangaMaster13 November 16, 2017 Love halo: reach. My favorite game of all time. Reply SaltyAdmin November 16, 2017 Mine got stolen from my apartment along with around $8000 of other shit. Renters insurance gave me $400 Reply EnragedMikey November 16, 2017 NSFW: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sXasCjUTNpE Reply Terrorbahd November 16, 2017 Still have mine sat under the telly! Do still sort of pine for the r2-d2 one a little tho. Reply Spawnacus November 16, 2017 My last pre-order was Titanfall 2. Before that, can’t recall. Think TF2 will be my last. Reply killinu40 November 16, 2017 I didn’t preorder it but I’m also still a proud owner of this one! Reply Oh_THAT_Guy_GMD November 16, 2017 I still haven’t pre ordered a game. Reply metaknight95 November 16, 2017 My Reach 360 still works fine, even after 7.5 years Reply One_Winged_Rook November 16, 2017 What do you need two controllers for an online FPS game for? /s Reply SinusMonstrum November 16, 2017 I think the only games I’ve pre-ordered was Pokémon games. Reply truthinlies November 16, 2017 Windwaker. My only preorder because it came with oot for the GameCube, and I would’ve dropped that amount on the oot alone Reply GrassyPole November 16, 2017 Yea halo reach was sick as frick Reply harris52np November 16, 2017 I️ had the same one, it was my first console, still love xbox Reply JTBWilson November 16, 2017 This was my only preorder as well and I agree 100%. I remember that day so vividly because as I was pulling out of the parking lot I struck a van. It was my first accident, but all I was thinking was “What if I have to take this back to pay for this?” Luckily the woman driving the van knew my dad and let me go. Played Halo all day as soon as I got home! Reply Logondo November 16, 2017 Back when collectors editions were actually a collectors item. I still got my Halo 3 Helmet and my Halo Reach model lying around. Reply decptacon3 November 16, 2017 Yess, I remember my most favorite computer game I ever played as being Halo Reply Majike03 November 16, 2017 I recently got the Halo 1 green Xbox from a friend. I fixed it up, and gave it to my older brother (with Halo 1 and 2) as a birthday present. Reply ATR2004 November 16, 2017 I had to *reach* into my wallet to but this. Reply darthballs91 November 16, 2017 My best pre-order to date was the Halo 3 edition that came with the helmet stand. I still have it and will probably keep it forever. Pretty sure it was only 100 bucks at the time. Reply Leopold_CXIX November 16, 2017 This is the last pre-order I didn’t regret. After pre-ordering ME Andromeda, I will not be pre-ordering anything ever again. Reply tumtum05 November 16, 2017 I love the ending!

Mine stopped reading disks after a year. Reply HaiImDad November 16, 2017 My first preordered was the arkham knight ps4. Good stuff man Reply downonthesecond November 16, 2017 I thought I would have had to pre-order the [OoT 3DS bundle](http://images.bestbuy.com/BestBuy_US/images/products/3848/3848154_sa.jpg), but I walked into GameStop and they had three or four during the re-supply. Reply Riotgrrill November 16, 2017 Eh I regretted it when I had to wrap it in a towel to make it work for a few hours. Reply Devib-patrick-kelly- November 16, 2017 The 360 for its time was a decent system. The fucking Super Nintendo is better then the Xbox one Reply Muddytertle November 16, 2017 I preordered all of the COD’s and never had an issue and received free stuff for it. It’s not a big deal and everyone needs to simmer down. EA also makes my favorite game series and have loved every single one.

Reply SpikeShroom November 16, 2017 I pre-ordered my 3DS XL, A Link Between Worlds, and Breath of the Wild. I’m not even a huge Zelda or Nintendo nerd tbh, but I guess I just have good luck with pre-orders. All those products were – or still are – pretty great.

Now it’s literally like a fucking hat you get for pre ordering the game Reply D3lka November 16, 2017 Sadly mine got stolen shortly after I started college. 🙁 Reply RightOnFi November 16, 2017 They really need to bring back Halo Reach as a PC port. That is the only Halo game I would get behind. I never got to experience 3; I almost always got the new stuff because I thought it was better. That was back when I was an impressionable teenager. Reply Lakaen November 16, 2017 Solid game but still Halo 2 > Reach Reply Sol-Invitus November 16, 2017 When I preordered Skyrim, we got Four star pizza and Iron helmet plushie hats while outside the store at midnight on 11/11/11.
