Hmm be careful pre-ordering this from here... I got on email last week with a cancellation on this exact item having had it pre-ordered for a few months from them.
#2
you can re-order it with the discount then!
#3
remember quidco
#4
thats true, 8% quidco...so £2.95 or so cashback...which i completely missed out on when i ordered fable 2...oh poopoo!
#5
Ordered using code cheers mate :)
#6
Can anyone confirm that this will come with the gold lancer code and the code to download the old maps?.

I've completed the game already but it's good enough that I want to pre-order and get the extras :-P
#7
it does have the gold lancer code, nothing about old maps though...but you do get a nice picture book!!

how did you complete the game? beta tester?
#8
It was leaked last weekend ;-). Excellent game!.

It doesn't come with the any of the old maps from Gears 1 though. There are 5 maps from the original game that have been redone (Gridlock etc). I looked into it a bit further and apparently you have to redeem a code that comes with your copy of the game in order to download them. I'm guessing the LE pack comes with the code like all the others although it's not mentioned anywhere.

Found a link about it..

think i will stick with my zavvi pre- order,i have ordered only twice before from whsmith and both times they cancelled my order as no stock
#10
Mine was cancelled the other week, then reinstated automatically, but I cant cancel it myself now to take advantage of the lower price :(
#11
I'm surprised this is voted hot considering you can pre order from thehut.com for £32.93. Just use discount code at checkout to get a £2 discount. Discount code is HALLOWEEN.
#12
It's £35.10 at Zavvi online with the Virgin credit card discount....probably more reliable than Smiths too!

i disagree tbh. zavvi have been very good for me. most recent of all i recieved fable 2 collectors edition a day early last thursday and everything is in perfect order. on the other hand i had an e-mail from them sayin that the GOW2 LE has been backlogged and i won't be recieving it on release day :( . i think i will now order from here :)
#20
Ordered. So, from what others have said, I hope Smiths will come up with the goods.
I always prefer to get the Limited Editions of games wherever possible, not only for the nice packaging but the in-game extras are a nice touch.

Yeah I had the same. I just phoned WHSmiths to check on that status of my order as it was still showing. They told me it had been canceled, but re-ordered again, but on back order. So in other words not released in time for release day! Just completely canceled the order with them. Good job I was on the ball and ordered it from Zavvi a couple of weeks ago.
#22
I guess I shouldn't be surprised that I just got the following email then :x...

They'll let you order no problem but give it a day or 2 and you'll get an email the same as mine.
#27
Great, now Zavvi have told me they don't have any stock and it's on back order :x.
#28
I just got this e-mail, does this mean I am not getting it from them, I will be pi$$ed off as I canceled my pre-order with Play for the normal edition, but this offer for the special edition was cheaper!!!!!!

WH Smith will live to regret this if I don't get this game on the release day! :evil:

That's the same one I got, so basically they have no stock for you on release day. After I got that email I canceled and ordered with Zavvi instead then they sent me a similar email :x. As yet I'm still to find somewhere that can get me the LE for release day at a reasonable price.

I'm actually starting to think I maybe won't bother now. The Gears 2 multiplayer servers have been up for a couple of days now and the new matchmaking system is REALLY REALLY bad. I only buy Gears for multiplayer so seems kinda pointless now. You can no longer choose the gamemode (ie Warzone/Execution) you play and everything is open to vote. It's terrible and half either your team or the opposing team will quit as soon as the match starts. I've been being forced to play gamemodes and maps I hate with laggy players for the last few nights and it's just no fun anymore.

Hmmm, I just received the same 'out of stock' email from WHSmiths. Seems as though they won't be supplying the game to many people in time for release day. ******s. The only reason I paid over £30 for it was to receive it on the day of release, otherwise I would wait until Christmas and buy it cheaper elsewhere.
#31
I got the out of stock email yesterday, on release date, I ordered it in AUGUST! I've bought too many games for now anyway, I'll wait til the new year when its cheaper instead.
