Halo 4 - Limited Edition (360)

How limited is this compared to Reach? The Reach one was anything but limited and available for about 20quid new only a few months later. Tempted to buy the normal edition of 4, finish it then trade it in for a good amount towards one of the mega deals that Gamestation or Game will be doing, with the other big releases that follow hot on the tails of Halo. Then pick up the LE at a later date!
Not convinced that any Halo game is that limited really mate, when you can go into your local CEX and can nearly always pick Halo 3, Reach, and that RTS LE's no problem. It's pretty and shiny and I suspect that within a month it'll sell for at least 3/4 of the original retail price! The joys of LE collecting

i have a star wars edition gameboy. god knows how limited it is, i havent seen anouther one in "real life" but a few have cropped up on ebay over the years so im guessing its fairly limited. its just an x-ray GB though with star wars game and a snazzy box.

3 replies before a star wars pun, you did well :lol:
many thanks for the comments, it is definatly one of the items in my collection id find hard to part with.
had a little look through some of my other stuff last night, this one is a bit of a shot in the dark and based purly on the fact i only see about 1(ish) a month on ebay....
Saturn light gun, house of the dead edition? its your basic standard virtua gun and box with HOTD decals on it. compared to the Virtua cop one, this one seems failry limited.
like i said though, they could be freaking everywhere and just not up for sale.

The game itself goes for around £15-£20 as it's uncommon (not exactly regarded as a great port however). Didn't know a gun set existed but I imagine it would be worth upwards of £20 for sure. The only one on ebay is on a Buy It Now for almost £80 but it previously didn't sell at that price so take what you will from that.

Could always try asking over at www.retrocollect.com forums and see if any resident Saturn experts know some more.
