In what may be my most public display of nerditry yet, I have just come back from spending part of my lunch break shaking boxes of the Halo 3 Limited Edition box (themselves, encased in plastic boxes) in order to determine whether or not discs have gotten loose in shipping.
Verdict: All of them are loose.
Which means scratched up discs, which means your seventy dollar purchase has to go back to the store for a replacement.
The worst part about this is the fact that I did not, in fact purchase anything, and just walked out of the store, Halo-less.
I was rather tempted by the Super Limited Legendary Edition, which comes in a box about the size of a small laser printer.
Yes, it really is that big.
Update: I just canceled my Amazon order and I’m actually going to head back to that Best Buy and purchase a copy of Halo 3 anyway.
