Those who preordered Halo: Reach from GameStop got a code for a nifty suit of armour. This code was, technically, free. Some guy's been selling them on eBay, for close to and even more than the game's retail price.
"People want what they can't have," the seller, who has auctioned off codes before, told Hot Blooded Gaming.
The $US66 auction attracted 41 bids; another one netted $US57 on 22 bids. In all, he's sold 11 codes for the Halo: Reach "Mark V Mjolnir UA/Multi-Threat Configuration." He also sold codes for Mafia II's "War Hero" and "Vegas" pre-order bonuses, which also came from GameStop. We've all seen the stacks of cards these come on. Something suggests he may have gotten a fistful of extras.
