I think they just do the standard edition mate...I was thinking about getting the hardned for the COD1 Download but just thought if IW stick to their game plan they'll release it on the store and charge you £5/£10 for it...Just to get you to pay more money to them!!Do Asda, Tescos, etc. let you pre-order the hardened or prestige editions or is it just the standard one? I'm not bothered about the NVGs but I was wondering about getting the hardened version just for COD1 but I dunno if it's worth the extra 10 quid - the youtube vids of COD1 look a bit "dated" (ie. rubbish).
Think you are spot on there. They have only just started doing pre-orders and a lot of people will know little about it in stores yet. I'm not saying it's acceptable but you'd be amazed how many people work in large supermarkets and even if everyone gets a full and accurate brief on a new process half of those people will go away not fully understanding what they have to do. Supermarkets are like little villages in there own right even when closed. They seem so simple as a customer but it is really tough from the other side of the cash desk as it were in terms of how they are managed. I don't work in an Asda supermarket btw.I think I'll wait a week or so and speak to someone else - I think it helps speaking to the right people in these situations.
Might be worth buying one of those games listed on the cheap so you can get the half price deal - the only game I've got in that list is COD4 and I'm not trading that in ever.Game seem to be also doing the game half price if you trade in certain games link below.
So if Game sell for £55 you'd get it for £27.50
You'll be lucky there going on there at the moment for £24+ !!I think i might have sorted my pre-order......Phoned Asda and they are taking pre orders, i then phoned Game and they are also taking pre orders in store (asda and game next to each other) Neither store is taking any money yet as they are unsure of the price.......I am also buying a used copy of MW from ebay for £10............
Plan is if asda refuse to do an offer i'll pop over to game with MW trade it in and fingers crossed pick up MW2 for around £27......and if asda's offer is really good then i'll give the spare copy of MW to my brother-inlaw, which will put me in the wifes good books...........WIN WIN....
My plans never work, but you never know
I've only pre-ordered from one place for just that reason and also because I'm not a big fan of the pre-order process.I know this wont be popular and it is intended to purely give a differing opinion on mutliple pre-orders. From a certain perspective it could be seen as a little annoying that people feel the need to pre-order from lots of different places with no intention of buying more than one copy of the game. Real people will miss out on getting a copy of a game that is bound to sell out because of "pre-orders". I'm not worried about profit for retailers, I just don't think it's fair on the general public.
Do you call up every cab firm in your town when you need a taxi and just get in the one that gets to your door quickest as well?
Yeah wasn't aiming at you. It's just that i'd been thinking it as I read through this thread and when a new post was written it motivated me to post what I thought. That's why I didn't quote you.I've only pre-ordered from one place for just that reason and also because I'm not a big fan of the pre-order process.
I get the feeling that all Asda (and possibly other stores) will do is order a specific set amount per store plus maybe a multiple of the number of pre-orders they've received, ie. the number of pre-orders roughly indicates the approximate level of interest there is in a game so they can estimate the demand of "impulse" buys there might be... otherwise from a marketing perspective, why would a shop allow you to order something (and for them to make a commitment to the customer) but not ask for any commitment (ie. a deposit) from the customer in return.
