Proof?
#2
Why would you pay so much OTT just to get it a few days early or am I missing something here??????
#3
Surely people can wait a few days and save themselves at least £30?
#4
why is this a deal

Maybe this would have been better posted in misc as an idea, rather then a deal.
#9
Maybe can I move it
#10
its still a deal, people might want it before it is released,
if this deal was local i would go get it
#11
are they allowed to give you an actual copy before the release date

No. Against the law to sell b4 release, but not against the law to buy b4 release date.

Quite a few people have a copy now, but can't talk/post youtube videos of gameplay 'till Midnight on the 9th.
#13
They are allowed depending on where they got it from and who the supplier is

It is not against the law to sell before release date. There is no such law.
suspended#15
I think you will find the games makers own the copyright to the game and its content, and if they say it is not to be released until tuesday, then any sale of the game is copyright violation

Its not against the law, they would just be in trouble with the distributors. If it was a normal retailer the distributor may not send them new release again until day of release, but as CEX normally only sell pre-owned items i guess they don't have too much to worry about.

Still wouldn't pay that though!

It's still not against the law, I doubt that your scenario is even covered by copyright. More likely a contractual agreement not to release games until release date.

You are NOT going to see a policeman taking shop owners away for something like this as it is not, I repeat NOT against the law.

Sorry we have our wires crossed, Im saying it is against civil law, i.e a breach of contract

I think the heat proves otherwise, why would you want to pay twice as much to play it 48 hours earlier, its madness! Its not even the money, its the principal!
#23
in 2 weeks we can probably buy 3 for that price
#24
Yes, yes I understand all that but I'm sure someone will buy it at that price. The reason I said it's a shame is 'cos the OP was obviously just letting peolpe know. And, yes, maybe it would have been better placed in MISC :)

very greedy by the way i love your pic gorgeous cat
#26
Im tempted to report cex for tprofiteering. Paying double for something you can have in 48 hours seems mad to me!
#27
overrated and way over hyped! tons of of other good games out there!
#28
Lets get this to be the coldest deal ever. How can charging above RRP be any sort of deal.
#29
lol play it early an get your online account banned maybe? i seem to remember this happening before and xbox live banned em risky and pricey to boot.

What a joke.
#32
This is a good deal. I know loads of fanboys that would pay more than this price to get it before release. I wouldnt personally. I'm banking on getting it for under £30 from Sainsburys or ASDA at 7am like last year. I hope whichever supplier dished these copies out gets into trouble for it. I'm jealous!!
#33
Playing a game before its launch date may or may not break laws but if you are using the Xbox 360 version it breaks Microsofts Terms & Conditions of live/use and keep doing it will loose you your gamer tag Perm Ban)l loosing you any purchased content remaining points etc.) and will lead to a console ban. Its just a game after all . I good game granted but no game is worth than for a few days...

Cold also you realise you just destoryed your voting power.


Yup, so basically when you vote a deal hot the system will compute that you no naff all of deals and actually result in a cold vote being cast (_;)
#37

Im struggling to work out your beef with this, if you don't like it don't buy it, simple as. There must be a market for it and if people want to pay they're not breaking any law, good luck to em.

Chill, I was just having a joke :)

To be fair to CeX they purchased it for 52 pound. So if anyone has any before release date take it there and trade it in you will get that amount. They are making 18 profit and they have already sold 40 units on ps3 and all units are gone on 360. I don't mind the cold votes coz it is over priced but I know people want it so thought I'd inform y'all. Keep voting cold... Hot or cold it's still attention lol
