Gears 2 GOTY Edition for £9.99 is a great price, but chuck in the 20% voucher for today only -- 20OFFHMV -- makes it £7.99. That's ridiculously cheap for the GOTY Edition.... and good for getting your roadie-camming/covering/chainsawing game back on in prep for GOW3.

Not to mention Quidco/TCB on top of that.

Yeah I know.

Ordered, thanks. Hope it doesn't get cancelled

Saw this for £9.99 and couldn't decide whether to buy. The voucher code has sealed the deal, many thanks OP!

Is the extra dlc with this just the 'all fronts" dlc which can be purchased for 800 ms points or is there addition dlc/extras with it?

It's basically All Fronts (there isn't any other DLC) + obviously the shipped game.

I moved from US and I'm using my american xbox live account here in UK, Microsoft doesn't let me migrate, will I be able to use the download code anyway? Cheers.

was thinking of picking up the DLC pack, but might just order this instead, ta

Edit: Ordered.

From memory, and I might be wrong, but Road To Ruin is a new campaign chapter that can be played single player, but is designed very much for co-op. So the answer to your question is a caveated no.

Brilliant deal even for a tenner! Loads of replay value with all those maps.

main advantage of the DLC is being able join in game matches in social, and with a romoured x 30 XP event coming up, you can rank up in KOTH

Nooooboid question. I already have GOW 2 installed and played through. If I installed this would all my GOW 2 related stuff migrate to this game? (kills, achievements)

I only play solo so the Single player Road To Ruin is that as big as tyhe other Chapters in the game or is it a trifling little thing?

There is some other DLC content and thats Flashback Map Pack,

Not directly... (i'm an Aussie, same issue). You need to make yourself a silver UK account on the xbox, and download the DLC with that account - the content is available to anyone using that Xbox (i.e. your Gold US account will be able to access it just fine)

If you're looking for a wonderful and new campaign experience, understand this road to ruin is a deleted scene for a reason

Yeah I didn't think about that, it should definitely work, thanks mate!

Only if you're migrating to another country that didn't have Xbox Live before, like Brazil or South Africa.
This is so **** bulshit because I can't get all the nice deals he have in UK for microsoft points, the codes don't work with my account, but at least the live membership codes are free.
Cheers.

Microsoft mucked up when they assigned a region to your profile/gamertag based purely on the email address you allocated to the profile/gamertag.

I'm stuck with a US profile despite always having been in the UK, the problem being my email address was .com rather than .co.uk.

Pretty disgraceful they cannot alter the region once it's created.

just got an email cancelling my order due to wrong pricing BBOOO!!!

That's wrong of HMV to do that, considering I got an email from them saying it's dispatched:

One of the items from your order is in the post and should be with you … One of the items from your order is in the post and should be with you soon. If you've pre-ordered, we'll aim to get it to you on the day of release (UK deliveries only.:XBOX 360GAME GEARS OF WAR 2: GOTY EDITION £7.99 2-5 days



It's like they've decided to stop honouring after an arbitrary number of purchases, even though the page still says the same price. (Despite claiming it's the wrong price and then cancelling orders.)

Edit: i've tried to expire this deal based on this latest news, but, admittedly, I don't know what effects an expiry. Does it take multiple people declaring the deal as expired...?
Edited by: "sits69" 20th May 2011

Typical HMV. Their deals should be banned from here, useless people.

I dont have the GOTY version and I went online for horde last week and I wasn't able to connect to a game because I dont have the Dark Corners (or Flashback) map pack. There was no menu where I could change this to just games where the players are using the original maps. Anyone know how to get round this? (Providing there are people on it? I imagine its a bit of a ghost town nowadays)

cancelled. This is the 3rd time they've done this to me! HMV officially suck donkey balls

Had my ordered cancelled. HMV are a bunch of crettens

Why has someone managed to get this then? Surely if one got then more should get

They been doing this forever, never successfully bought anything from HMV yet after 4 different tries all same ending. **** company
