Halo 3: ODST Special Edition Available in the ME
And guess what? It’s far cheaper than in the US!
If you didn’t know already, the Special Edition Halo 3: ODST Bundle, a package containing a custom designed Halo 3: ODST controller, is actually available in the Middle East:
These come from the personal copy of our reviewer Rabie Hassoun who lives in Saudi Arabia. He says the special edition costs 299 riyals while the normal edition costs 199 riyals and is available in almost every game shop in the country.
As confirmed by some of our forum users, this special edition is also available in the UAE at various game shops for the same price and even less! A user Solidnake_Devil has tipped that the controller bundle is available at Hamid Center, Abu Dhabhi for 185 Dhs.
For a change, we are seeing games selling for far less than in the USA. The Special Edition cost $100 over there – a good $20 more than what is being sold at here. Even the normal edition is $10 or less than the US’s full price of $60. Cool, right?
