    Xbox 360 Halo Reach for £28 at Tesco

    Leading UK retailer offering discounted game if customers buy 2100 Microsoft Point card, Following news that Microsoft’s Halo Reach has already arrived with some UK shoppers, it has now emerged that Tesco is to aggressively cut the price of the game in its UK stores come its release on Tuesday. Consumer advice site Frugal Gaming has got its hands on a photo of some marketing material advertising the game for just £28. That’s nearly a 50 per cent discount on the game’s official RRP and – crucially for indie retailers – somewhat less than the trade price many shop owners will be buying the game in for.

    However, the price will only be available to those who buy a 2100 Microsoft Points Card. These normally retail for around £18, though it’s unclear whether these will be also sold at a promotional price. Tesco has previously offered the cards for as little as £10.

    The deal isn’t quite as aggressive as the £24.97 Tesco was selling FIFA 10 for last October, but will still cause a bit of a headache for specialist retailers.

    I'm all for this.
    Games retail is toe-nail clippings to a company like Tesco and if it makes companies like Game and Gamestation nervous then good

    I've already been through the sp part of the game so unless the other supermarkets follow suit and do it around £25 I'm not gonna bother with it, unless I get a good deal on my trade ins.

    Just rang Tesco's here to confirm it was on sale after 12 and the deal and they confirmed it was £28 when bought in conjunction with 2100 Microsoft points (16.95 I think they said) but they can be twats at my local store so won't surprise me if there is a problem like no points or limited number like 2 packs.....
    Will update.

    Got it for £36 on Zavvi and it arrived early on Sat and got 4% with quidco so not too bad.

    Completed the campaign but not got internet at the minute so can't play online.
    What's the point in this game without online
