And so the trend continues. It appears that Halo 4 will be offering several different armor skins, some exclusive emblems and a new weapon skin depending on the retailer you pre-order the game from. You can view images of every armor, as well as which stores you can get each one at, right here.
Honestly, is anyone really surprised by this, especially given how big of a release Halo 4 will be? While the variety of armors look quite interesting and are pretty different from the permutations of previous Halo games, I can’t help but feel like I’m being swindled out of content that should be on the disk by default. One small pre-order bonus is fine, but several different ones all from different places? No matter where I pre-order the game from, I’m losing out on something. And even if they offer everything on the marketplace at a later date, it’s still a rather confusing load of malarkey.
But hey, maybe that’s just me and me alone, though I’m pretty sure that’s not the case. I guess we all just have to get with the times.
