The point of this thread is to show you why you should go for the Limited over the standard. First off, the standard retails at $59.99. there are going to be 3 map packs, which normally go for 800 MSP (or 10 bucks a pop) so that's roughly $30. Bringing you're total up to 89.99. "but Mix," you say, "That's ten dollars cheaper than the LE. Why not just do that?" Well, you also get a packet (a la Art Book) which would retail at about $15 by it's self, the "Halo: Forward Unto Dawn"s Director's Cut web-series, plus a plethora of in game add-ons that the most die-hard Halo fans will really appreciate.
The point is, if you want a standard copy of the Biggest game of the year, then sure, get the standard edition, but if you want the full experience, then pick up the Limited Edition.
Halo 4 releases on November 6th, 2012.
