You get the specialisations with any limited edition. They are not a pre-order bonus. Everyone will have access to them at some point but you first have to get to the max level to unlock a specialisation.

The only problem with pre-ordering from amazon is that half of us won't get our copies on release day

Cos it doesn't exist. At least I don't think it does, and the manual and stuff would be in Finnish, and I'm English.

)Problem with paid delivery i.e. first class they know it should arrive within 1-2 days. So they send it the day before release date and hope Royal Mail can handle it all without forgetting any. So 9 out of 10 times the package is delivered on time and the odd person receives it a day or so late mainly because of Royal Mail. Trick is to get the free delivery and you have a 2 in 3 chance of getting yours delivered early because they have to guess how long it will take for it to arrive and try to get it to arrive for the release date but Royal Mail being Royal Mail they get it delivered early and therefore some people get their copy early. But all that varies on how Royal Mail operate in your area etc so it varies from person to person but all I know is if I got standard delivery I would have got my copy of MOHW early rather than getting it on release date and paying £1.60 or so for delivery.

I wouldn't buy from Amazon because it's not guaranteed to arrive on release day. Wait and see how many people start complaining about not receiving their game on release day. Happens every time.

Too late to worry now for Halo 4, but I have started getting all my pre-orders from ASDA direct. Usually a couple of quid cheaper than Amazon, but mainly because guaranteed release day delivery, and that's free!

I don't know what you guys are bitchin' for. I paid for standard delivery which means it was sposed to be dispatched on release day, and i'd get it by the 9th, but i got it today - release day instead. I've never had any issue with anything i've bought from amazon.

Bless you sir.

Have to say I'd agree with you on that M. Deakin... That is, if Amazon didn't splash 'Get it by release day' on the product page and then fail to deliver it with the Prime One-Day 'Guaranteed on Tuesday, November 6' delivery option!

Well lucky you Aaron Williams - many paid for more than standard delivery and didn't get their game at all. Maybe you should read the other posts that have been sent by those who still don't have their Halo 4 despite paying a fortune for it to be delivered yesterday......

I ordered Halo 4 and used Next Day Guaranteed Delivery which it was guaranteed to be arrive yesterday.... and it still didn't arrive yesterday as promised by Amazon.

Looking at the forums there appears to be significant amount people who haven't yet received there copy of Halo 4 (me included). As it's now 3 days I would suggest that Amazon have been unable to fulfill all it's orders and the games haven't actually been dispatched at all. I've now cancelled all my pre-orders with Amazon.
I would implore everyone affected to log onto the BBC Watchdog website and "send your story".

3rd post in three days. Day 3 - post Halo 4 release and I have still not received my game. I know the postman isn't avoiding my address because he keeps delivering me bills and unsolicited mail. I have sent Amazon a third email about my apparently 'despatched but missing' game and have received a 'We can't be arsed email advising me to wait until the 14th of Never before they will despatch another (If they despatched one in the first place) so I have now followed John's advice and I have sent my story to BBC's Watchdog.

That sucks. I hope BBC voice your problem, as this has been a problem with many players. It was all over the Waypoint forums in one thread about them lying.

This internet shop needs to suffer. I've experienced nothing but positive experiences from them. But your case with others is disgraceful. They pay less tax than other shops and internet shops, and are destroying the retail market. So they deserve to be badly publicised.
