Halo: Combat Evolved has been slashed in half as this weeks deal on Xbox LIVE. The game is now going for 600 MS Points and is a must get for any Halo fan that doesn’t own the original game. Especially since I think it’s the best Halo game in the franchise.
So, why do I think Halo: CE should be cheaper? Microsoft milked the hell out of the original game. After a game sells over 400,000 copies within the first nine months of release, a game is supposed to become a Platinum Hit and sell for $19.99. Halo didn’t become a Platinum Hit until years after its release. In fact, Halo 2 didn’t even become a Platinum Hit until just this past year, months after Halo 3 came out.
600 MS Points ($7.50) should be the actual price instead of a one-week sale price. Oh well, there’s always piracy I suppose.
