Halo 3: Legendary Edition on Sale at Future Shop

Wow. Future Shop has the Halo 3: Legendary Edition on sale for $49.99 until August 21st, $20.00 off their current price.

That means that you can buy the Halo 3: Legendary Edition for less than the cost of the standard edition of Halo 3, which sells for $59.99.

Granted, stores are just trying to clear stock on an 11 month old limited edition item, but really this goes to show just how quickly these "collectibles" depreciate in value, and why the initial price tag (scroll to the bottom) of $149.99 was not worth it at all.

Personally, I'm glad I picked up the Halo 3: Limited Edition, however if I found a new copy of the Halo 3: Legendary Edition for $24.99 to $29.99, I'd bite.

Dang, the people who bought it for the full price earlier must have felt so ripped off!

Well, all collectible items like this tend to drop substantially in price once retailers want to clear inventory.

The same thing happened to all those The Lord of the Ring collector editions that came with collectibles a few years back.
