Microsoft sez… Halo 3 Legendary Edition on track to sell out.
A Microsoft spokesperson, in a statement to gamesindustry.biz spokesman said, quote:
While we cannot comment on specific numbers for the US sales of the Legendary SKU, we can confirm that demand remains high and the highly-collectible version of the game is on track to be sold out by the time Halo 3 launches next week.
This isn’t really surprising, especially since it’s already sold out in the UK. Hell, even I have pre-ordered the Halo 3 Legendary Edition. I admit that at first I pre-ordered it simply because I was expecting to be one of the few who were, as my mother put it, “stupid enough to spend $130 on a video game”. However, as the time has passed (I pre-ordered in April), I’ve become very excited about getting my hands on this…
…even if my Xbox isn’t back by then.

Add me to the list JW. I have the Legendary reserved and paid for. I really hope the helmet has some nice detail.

This doesn’t surprise me in the least bit. Especially when Halo 3 is already on track to be the largest “media” (including movies) release in history…very impressive.

I have it pre-ordered at two different places. I did that because a gamestop opened a few blocks away from my house and I want to get back home to play the game as soon as possible after midnight. However, I’m not cancelling my other preorder until I have the box in my hands. I am also tempted to just buy that second preorder and keep it sealed in the original box in hopes that it will be worth something someday when I’m 60. But, I also have to save for an HDTV so, I’ll probably cancel it

I’d say cancel the other, take the money, and get yourself the HDTV. Thankfully my monitor is HD-ready, so all I have to do is get the hook-ups for my 360 to adapt it to the PC, and I’m set.
