    I dunno about this, I feel like the MEIDs won't get verified and we won't get any games.

    Okay. If you feel as though, this won't do anything. Don't do it? If you've already signed up, hope you get them. Negativity gets you nowhere.

    Well I'm not worried or anything, I couldn't really care less. I'll probably forget I even did this and be surprised if they come. The only reason I'm hesitant is because at the bottom of the home page it said only phones purchased between May 26, 2011-July 15, 2011 are valid, so they must have some way of checking, right? Or they could be bullshitting us which I suppose I wouldn't be surprised [​IMG]

    Meh. If it works it works, if not no harm done. It's better to sign up and get nothing, then not to and get nothing. I wonder if Gamestop would give me the full retail price if the copies are new, and still in the shrink wrap. XD

    My thoughts exactly. Haha, nope they won't. You'll probably get $30 out of it maybe, Oh well. I signed up for 2 Halo Reach's, gonna sell both of them if it works.

    Curious as to if the game is coming in the mail, or it will just be a redeemable code to enter and it will be downloaded. I found this method on another site like 2-3 weeks ago so I'm surprised this is still running. Millions of people have probably done this by now. Only time will tell to see if we are all eligible.

    Oh cool, thanks. Seems like Microsoft is giving away Halo: Reach like no other. They must have over stockpiled the game haha.

    I ordered Lode Runner, but instead it sent me an email of it coming in 4-5 weeks or something, is this normal? BTW, I live in Canada, so if anyone would like to give me a free copy of Halo Reach that would be appreciated.

    Thanks for the news. It's good to see somebody sharing news of their choices they make on different subjects that nobody could care about. And really, Microsoft should know by now that ANY promotion they have, people will find a way to get a chance to abuse it. Like the whole Club Bing situation and all the bots available to use for it. They should have figured out there are MEID generators out there and could possibly be used for this promotion. It's their fault for not thinking about that.

    I was apart of the club bing botting (or club live as it used to be called) and exploited the crap out of it and got tons of free stuff
    then the netflix xbl 1 month trial exploit came out and now my live account doesnt expire until the end of 2013
    its been nice exploiting MS so far [​IMG]

    @ Devin: I worked at Gamestop.

    They FORCE you to open the game when selling it to them. Unless you have a receipt, they will refuse to take wrapped games.

    And FYI the last time I checked Reach fetches about 15 bucks. And right now they have a 40% extra bomus coupon for trade ins. So do the math. [​IMG]

    The GameStop up here is doing 50% trade in credit. For just Halo: Reach I'd get $187.50. XD But they might not come in while the offer's going on.


    (eBAY/Craigslist works too. [​IMG].)

    Are we allowed to trade in more than one copy of the same game to Gamestop at once? I thought I read some time ago it wasn't allowed but I never really asked someone who would actually know and was just roaming the interwebz [​IMG]
