November 15, 2017 Hadigan_33 yup amazing system November 15, 2017 Dimingo To be fair, this pre-order involved physical goods which have a history of being supply constrained (the console). November 15, 2017 BlazingSlash 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. November 15, 2017 Pickle_riiickkk 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. November 15, 2017 deathbatdrummer I didn’t know they made a reach version! My personal fave is the Master Chief colored one,I wish I had one 🙁 November 15, 2017 AJEstes I still have my Reach Edition 360 lying around somewhere. It was a gift to myself after I completed Basic Training. Fun times. November 15, 2017 ShannonM24 Honestly I thought Reach had the best multiplayer of any Halo I played. I absolutely loved SWAT. November 15, 2017 Diocleatian Amazing game for an amazing system, great days of multiplayer and fun, good grinding for awesome armor. November 15, 2017 Pandaonparole Only thing I regret not pre ordering was the Skyrim with the dragon statue. November 15, 2017 Calx9 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…….. November 16, 2017 Baja_Califas I still have the same one. November 16, 2017 Jonmva703 360 was an Amazing console besides the red rings of death. November 16, 2017 SpaceManMethodHead To this day, I still haven’t made a preorder. November 16, 2017 PoeGhost The only pre order I ever made was for Space Marine. No regrets. RIP THQ November 16, 2017 OmnifariousFN i have that console, it makes halo sound when you push the power and eject buttons. fave console! November 16, 2017 Psykpatient Only pre order I made was Tlou. No regrets. November 16, 2017 Brocid3n The biggest preorder I made is my favorite. Halo 3 Legendary edition. November 16, 2017 flippitydip only game I ever pre-ordered was torchlight 2 just for the pre-load November 16, 2017 captainedwinkrieger I made my ring blue on mine. November 16, 2017 Veritas3333 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. November 16, 2017 diego97yey Is this the halo where they added those shileds and power ups you can deploy November 16, 2017 ThePiePieper Hurts me every time I think that Reach is the only one not to get a remaster. November 16, 2017 Isingforasspixs Mine was the titanfall 1 collectors edition with the huge atlas statue, and watchdogs collectors edition with the aiden pierce statue. November 16, 2017 Lync51 I definitely need an Xbox to finally play Halo again November 16, 2017 Anonymonynonymous [picture of box] November 16, 2017 smilinreap Pre order Monster hunter then. If you want some guaranteed satisfaction *bow chika ow wow* November 16, 2017 teej1109 I did the same! I got red rings like a week before it came out and I got the last one in the store. November 16, 2017 Avacadont 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 November 16, 2017 McKynnen My god comparing Halo Reach to Destiny 2 isn’t even a contest November 16, 2017 Goku_uses_Spoons Ayyy I still got this shit too November 16, 2017 Cool_Christopher 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. November 16, 2017 Floggered 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. November 16, 2017 CantCatchMeUnawares http://www.tattoo.com/sites/default/files/u8050/no-ragrets-temporary-tattoo.jpg November 16, 2017 faced88 That awesome custom sound when it booted! November 16, 2017 Bastard_Saint Good game good call. November 16, 2017 CodyCus I pre order every single Pokemon game for the 3ds and never been burned either. November 16, 2017 heebro boycott EA, dismantle Origin November 16, 2017 thehypotheticalnerd 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. November 16, 2017 acherem13 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. November 16, 2017 gigoloJack82 my first and last preorder was company of heroes 2, did’t enjoy the campaign much, but play skirmish to this day. November 16, 2017 cryptum001 Best system I ever owned. Had to make repairs at points but mine still runs beautifully. November 16, 2017 TrollMan64 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. November 16, 2017 afrokaptain The music still haunts me till this day November 16, 2017 a11gz What about ragrets? November 16, 2017 Flipiwipy Only one preorder ever. Switch + BotW. Probably will never preorder again, but I was Uber hyped for that (and thoroughly enjoyed it) November 16, 2017 Duck_on_Qwack Reach was trash compared to Halo 3 November 16, 2017 MrCherryDood95 What a beaut. November 16, 2017 TheSilentArt I have mine under my bed in a box since I have a 1 now. I will never part with it November 16, 2017 Doc_Destructo 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. November 16, 2017 Jacobro22 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 November 16, 2017 ShaunDotCom 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. November 16, 2017 conandy I’ve never regretted any Nintendo preorder. November 16, 2017 NoJumprr 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. November 16, 2017 lytss With two controllers… When coop mode were still alive November 16, 2017 FuckM0reFromR The only thing I’ve ever pre-ordered was GTA3. I wish I could feel those feels again :D… November 16, 2017 set_teh_record_str8 I preordered the Halo 4 special edition console. *[swank](https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/81fE18rFPeL._AC_SX430_.jpg)* November 16, 2017 Jamse1199 I had that’s still do but it’s broke still keep it around since it was such a good console November 16, 2017 FettkilledSolo Still have my Halo Reach 360, beautiful piece of hardware. November 16, 2017 Anceps19 I preordered the $100 edition of halo 4. Worst. Decision. Ever. It was the first and last game I ever preordered. November 16, 2017 Dragofireheart I pre-ordered the Nintendo Switch. November 16, 2017 Zmac122 I always thought Halo reach was the start of the franchise going to shit. Glad others had fun with it. November 16, 2017 Underwhere_Overthere 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. November 16, 2017 King_Rhymer To be fair. It was the last good halo November 16, 2017 MrFrostyBudds The only person order I ever got was destiny and to this day I still get Scholl’s at how fast that game fell?? November 16, 2017 Arclight209 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… November 16, 2017 bballjosh11 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. November 16, 2017 Sithslayer78 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! November 16, 2017 youniqa I still have mine November 16, 2017 joster121 That game was so good. I’d pay $60 if they put that on pc November 16, 2017 woowaa44 I started to preorder gta after it took a week or 2 to get gta 3 lol November 16, 2017 ThyOgrelord Reach was sick November 16, 2017 coldbattler 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. November 16, 2017 mightymorphineranger 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 November 16, 2017 Personzoo 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. November 16, 2017 captainstaircase 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 November 16, 2017 Irbricksceo 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 November 16, 2017 nRenegade To think this wasn’t even a decade ago. November 16, 2017 gailson0192 I have the halo 3 version Xbox elite. Still use it xD November 16, 2017 MusketeerLifer I’m jealous. Arguably my favorite story of the Halo franchise. Love Master Chief, but Reach made me feel every loss… November 16, 2017 mrjezail 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. November 16, 2017 MangaMaster13 Love halo: reach. My favorite game of all time. November 16, 2017 SaltyAdmin Mine got stolen from my apartment along with around $8000 of other shit. Renters insurance gave me $400 November 16, 2017 EnragedMikey NSFW: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sXasCjUTNpE November 16, 2017 Terrorbahd Still have mine sat under the telly! Do still sort of pine for the r2-d2 one a little tho. November 16, 2017 Spawnacus My last pre-order was Titanfall 2. Before that, can’t recall. Think TF2 will be my last. November 16, 2017 killinu40 I didn’t preorder it but I’m also still a proud owner of this one! November 16, 2017 Oh_THAT_Guy_GMD I still haven’t pre ordered a game. November 16, 2017 metaknight95 My Reach 360 still works fine, even after 7.5 years November 16, 2017 One_Winged_Rook What do you need two controllers for an online FPS game for? /s November 16, 2017 SinusMonstrum I think the only games I’ve pre-ordered was Pokémon games. November 16, 2017 truthinlies Windwaker. My only preorder because it came with oot for the GameCube, and I would’ve dropped that amount on the oot alone November 16, 2017 GrassyPole Yea halo reach was sick as frick November 16, 2017 harris52np I️ had the same one, it was my first console, still love xbox November 16, 2017 JTBWilson 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! November 16, 2017 Logondo Back when collectors editions were actually a collectors item. I still got my Halo 3 Helmet and my Halo Reach model lying around. November 16, 2017 decptacon3 Yess, I remember my most favorite computer game I ever played as being Halo November 16, 2017 Majike03 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. November 16, 2017 ATR2004 I had to *reach* into my wallet to but this. November 16, 2017 darthballs91 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. November 16, 2017 Leopold_CXIX This is the last pre-order I didn’t regret. After pre-ordering ME Andromeda, I will not be pre-ordering anything ever again. November 16, 2017 tumtum05 I love the ending!

November 16, 2017 HaiImDad My first preordered was the arkham knight ps4. Good stuff man November 16, 2017 downonthesecond 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. November 16, 2017 Riotgrrill Eh I regretted it when I had to wrap it in a towel to make it work for a few hours. November 16, 2017 Devib-patrick-kelly- The 360 for its time was a decent system. The fucking Super Nintendo is better then the Xbox one November 16, 2017 Muddytertle 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. November 16, 2017 NiNj4_C0W5L4Pr “Ragrets” FTFY November 16, 2017 jrbl1 My best preorder Xbox 360 Star Wars edition. Worst preorder Xbox one. November 16, 2017 SpikeShroom I pre-ordered my 3DS XL, A Link Between Worlds, and Breath of the Wild.

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. November 16, 2017 Lakaen Solid game but still Halo 2 > Reach November 16, 2017 Sol-Invitus When I preordered Skyrim, we got Four star pizza and Iron helmet plushie hats while outside the store at midnight on 11/11/11.
