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:

Halo 3ODST_SE (2)

Halo 3ODST_SE (1)

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?

      Lol, nice pics. Was tempted to get the special edition, though I think with already 7 controllers at home I’m pushing it. Plus, waiting for the MW2 edition with console :)

    umm no..In saudi,nearly all games never go down in price..Seriously,halo 3 costs 250 riyals everywhere,even though ODST is out.. Buying old games,which have their price dropped in the states costs the same as new games(at a default 250-300 riyals)..This equals to about 70-80 dollars..Bargaining,and bargaining real good is the only way to get those prices..Little kings story is 30 dollars in the states, and it never decreased cost here :(

    As a huge fan of the Halo game, I am very excited to see
    that Bungie has come out with another game for the Halo series. I am happy to
    hear that Halo 3: ODST will tell a different side to the Halo war. I should get
    the game soon, since I just added it to the top of my Blockbuster queue list. I
    really enjoy Blockbuster, especially since I can rent movies and videogames at
    the same low price. As a DISH Network customer/employee, it’s easy to get bored
    of TV, so Blockbuster is the best way to mix things up. If you make the switch
    to DISH, you can get Blockbuster for 3 months free. If you are interested, there
    is more info about it at http://bit.ly/m86n4Y.
