(_;) HOT !!!

Cold. Add on the online pass price and you may as well buy new.

was going ask that, i heard you have to pay for online play for a second hand version?

how much is that?

No point buying Pre-owned if you want to play online. I think most online passes on the Playstation Store are £7.99.

Use with the Game and HMV offers ie trade in one of these games and pay £4.99 for ____ Think there are deals around for Skyrim and Assassin's Creed Revelations. Buy either for 27.98p new? sound's ace.

How much is the pass? bet it's 800-1200 msp :\

But by the time the game comes through your letter box, the GAME deal will probably be over.

On the Xbox, the pass is 800 points. As said, if you plan on playing online, you may aswell look around at buying new, rather than a second hand copy and an online pass costing virtually the same.

it's a way of getting people to buy new instead of second hand same on the the ps3 as xbox .

Ea's excuse it pathetic too. They claim they do it for server costs as these extra people aren't buying the game directly yet EA have to pay. But to buy a game second hand, somebody also has to sell it.... meaning the server load will be no different!

this game is gonna plummit in price soon, with the launch of cod, theres been loads traded in, and xmas on the horizon, this will be £20 new in time for xmas.

It won't be £20 in time for xmas.

It says "PLEASE NOTE: Pre-owned copy contains Online Pass"... So im sure you'll be able to play online with that pass lol

has it always said preorder? or does that mean that it is now OOS

would it be better to get the ultimate edition?

Says delivered by 25 November

easy solution here, get this, walk your pretty asses into game, trade for Skyrim for £4.99

+1

only the stupid would buy at this price and then moan when the online pass doesnt work!

But it says it includes the pass

I think op should add that these pre-owned copies include online passes to the title.

Interesting. Wouldn't trust it though. How can they tell it hasn't been used anyway?

Yep:
At a Glance
PLEASE NOTE: Pre owned copy includes Online pass

Shame this isn't out until 25th of November and the "trade in bf3 and £5 for Skyrim" deal expires nov 17th...

i've been tryin gto pick up a good dea lon battlefield for days, really should have got it last week when the offers were on. Every store in the high street is out of LE as well now, which is a **** as just bought the double mw3 and points deal at tesco with a view to trading in for it. Guess I'll just sell them for cash and wait a bit longer till christmas for better deals. Anyone know how much the dlc is likely to cost standard edition owners when released? Spose I could always stick with mw3, though much prefered bc2 to bops

The online passes are almost standard nower days to the people who make the games the second hand market is just as bad as piracy since they get no return for their investment for each second hand copy sold. When you consider how much games cost to make these days I can see why they do it.

there's only one word for this ... HAHA!

Used my online pass when I got this new and sold it to cex when I completed the campaign for more than I paid so no online pass for me in this pre owned game is fine as I've already submitted a code.

Did the same with FIFA too.

I blagged a free online pass through ea support chat, very easy to do so this is ideal for me. Send me a message if you want to know how.I'm writing this on a phone and its too long to write out.

dont buy it pre-owned - you wont be able to play online as mentioned and for this game its worthy of buying it new to support the developers and seeing what else the frostbyte 2 engine can do.

How much a game cost to make does not mean the game is any better than any other though, what these greedy publishers need to realize is you can't loose money on something that would not have been bought otherwise.
Heavy rain for example is one of the very few games I bought second hand and for me was a game I would have just passed on.

And for anyone just to say buying second hand is as bad a piracy well that's just retarded, for starters one of them you have a legal right to do so.

Probably the main reason why I would never accept a digital download only "gen".

obviously these are ex rental and as such will include the online pass.

hmm... Confusing why theres so many comments about the online pass and so few comments saying well done to coxy76 for spotting it... this is a great deal, as it has the pass included. In my opinion Coxy76 has just given us the cheapest way to get into Battlefield 3 so far... I think that deserves a pat on the back!...

Have some heat!

I agree. Cheers OP

Would these be ex rental copies whereby the blockbuster stores have purposely rented these out without the passes. I only say this as I rented skyrim yesterday, didn't get the physical map (I know it's now the same as a online pass), went instore to ask, the lady said she'd put them in, then another member of staff came over and said they'd been removed for 2 reasons, 1 being, people don't return the extras with the rental and the2nd being they have to sell the games after period of rental....this is the 2nd time it's happened to me in 2 different stores (rented a ltd edition version of dark souls and just got the box, disc and instructions).

It comes with a online pass, but you pre-order it so wont get it until the 25th of November?? wtf?

Ordered, says no later than 25th I thought, either way, doubt will see it this cheap in the next week or two and in no rush to play it as got MW3 to bore me til it arrives! Thanks OP, hot from me

As has been mentioned, it's rental copies from Blockbuster stores where the pass isn't given out, pre-order for the 25th as that's when they'll be releasing the stock for sale. Great deal if you want the game, and as they've advertised it with the pass, if it doesn't work, they have to provide you with a working one.
