Supermarkets Slash Halo: Reach Price

Another big game launch, another round of price-cutting for the supermarkets. We have already revealed that Tesco will sell you the game for £28.00 if you buy 2100 MS points with it, but what prices will the other ‘big four’ offer? Time for a bullet point table!

  • Tesco: £28 if you purchase 2100 MS points at £16.71 (total cost of £44.71) or you can buy the game alone for £37.70
  • Asda: Selling Halo: Reach for £37.47 and has an exclusive Halo Reach hoody available for £9 when purchased with the game. You can then wear the hoody, hide your face and rob the petrol station on the way out.*
  • Sainsbury’s: No hoodies, no conditions, just buy the game for £34.99.
  • Morrisons: As usual, Morrisons are keeping their price firmly hidden behind a stack of cornflakes until the day of launch. Their online price is £39.99, however a post on HotDealsUK claims that Morrisons will undercut everyone and sell the title for £25.00.

* This is  a joke, TSA is not suggesting you rob the Tesco Petrol station whilst wearing a hoody. Some have-a-go hero might try and stop you, better to mug a pensioner in a quiet corner of the car park.

  1. TC, you are a bizarre comic genius.

    • I want someone dressed as Masterchief robbing the petrol station. I nominate you, teflon. :-)

      • i’m not falling for that one again.
        i went to game at 8am when halo 3 came out and funny enough i was the only fu**er in the whole of Basildon apart from the spotty little herbert who undone the shutters and served me.
        Morrisons tomorrow it is then..

  2. I hope Morrisons do, there’s one right by my work. I’ll check before work and let you know.

    • What’s better than that, i work there and i’ll get by %10 discount off that as well. And no, i cant conferm the price until the shop opens and the prices are uploaded to the tills in the morning.

    • dont think morrisons will be selling for £25 newspaper advert shows £34.99

  3. Supermarkets really shouldn’t underestimate the power of reduced prices on release. I no longer have a 360 and thought Halo 3 was dissapointingly crap, but if they release it at £25 I feel gutted I don’t get the chance to buy a massive game on day of release for £25.

    Lets hope Black Ops does the same as MW2 :-)

  4. You say the ‘other’ big four while referring to Tesco, then the first of those ‘other’ four is Tesco? :)

    • It was early. Leave me alone.

    • Strike-through ftw! :D

      I’m surprised Sainsburys are only doing £34.99, I got MW2 for £28 from them last year.

  5. bit crazy

  6. * so Im ok to Rob Asda on my way out with my hoodie

  7. Ah, Tc. You never fail to make me chuckle. Hell, I don’t even own a 360 anymore and I’m considering grabbing this game (not really).
    Hopefully PS3’s big titles will see some cut price loving when the time comes. :)

  8. Not as cheap as last years war

  9. hmm guessing the Tesco deal is in store only? bugger.

  10. I love Steps. lol.

    • Well you can’t like them that much else you would of known the tag line is from S-Club 7 not Steps.
