    Not seen any prices for these editions at hmv yet - I have a bunch of store credit with them. Would also be interested if any stores run trade in offers for this game.

    sub £30 for sensible vanilla copy at whichever supermarket does a pricewar will do me.

    £160 for a cheap and nasty toolbox filled with a £40 RC kids toy...****ing behave.

    You know the games going to run like a turd for first few days possibly months anyhow.

    No elite sub included with any of the premium additions....Those stupid enough to purchase toolbox edition will probs end up shelling out £200 all in after dlc etc Really though £200 on a game released annually

    Folks, don't forget to go through either Quidco, or TopCashBack for extra cashback. :smashin:

    [Edit] - Majnu, I'm glad someone else is managing the CoD pre order thread this year!

    I still wake up at night with cold sweats thinking about it! :laugh:

    So anyone have any experience of Sainsburys?

    The wording on the site doesn't fill me with confidence, and I am certainly not giving Play an order for a release date game this big.

    So any way ordered the care package from Gamestation(Game), I know I'm an idiot but that's beside the point and my idiocy on this would be a topic for another discussion.

    I digress so anyway order and my bank decline my order for absolutely no reason. Infact my bank always decline Gamestation (game) for some stupidly unknown reason relating to possible fraud on Gamestation(Games) part.

    Does any one else have this kind of problem ordering from Game/Gamestation ? I don't have any problems ordering elsewhere.

    Of course it would help if Gamestation/Game didn't get any exclusives then this wouldn't be a problem.

    Also checkout on Gamestation is not secure I.E. No reasuring green padlock HTTPS symbol, Just a clear symbol. Maybe Game/Gamestation need to update their security protocols or like I say before have no exclusives.

    Infact purchasing from this company is like playing a game on hard/veteran setting. Almost impossible.

    That's my little semi-rant totally on thread I.E. Problems ordering done for now

    Apparently Blockbuster have the Hardened Edition (Xbox) available to pre-order for £44.99 (instore), staff have said if it is a miss-price you will not pay any more.

    I just called Blockbuster in Manchester and can confirm it's valid. I'll update Blockbusters Details - However that is for TODAY only. So drive down to your stores if you want it at that price.

    I rang 3 stores and 2 were clueless, but after giving the part number they were in disbelief themselves. Shame I haven't got an XBOX as I would have gone for that deal. I did enquire about the Digital Deluxe Edition for PC but they don't stock PC games. :(

    £45 is about right for the hardened edition if previous years are to go by and £30 for standard. Damn shame you're in Isle of Man and I'm on the PC. :laugh: I'm sure there will be supermarket deals nearer to release.;)

    I just went to my BlockBuster to get it for £44.95. Thing is, I'm wondering if they put their price up in the meantime - wound't we have to pay the difference?

    I'm only concerned as on my receipt (even though I asked to pay in full) it says "Presale (Deposit)". There's nothing to say that BlockBuster Staff can't charge me more on the day.

    They eff'd me about massively over the original Black Ops and I swore I'd never use them again.
