no one then :-(

Does this include Blockbuster Express?

Is this works out would be a really good deal - I called my Blockbuster in colchester and they said they are selling it for £45??
The face plate is going for a lot of money on Ebay at the moment - so I think I'll chance going into blockbuster tomorrow to check myself

I re-heally want that faceplate!
but I already have bioshock

i was told that it was £45 for either the limited edition OR the normal version at blockbuster, well that was about 3 hours ago when the person checked on his computer.

he had just taken delivery of 16 xbox 360 elites which will be £299.99, the manager said he thinks there will be a game deal with it but is not sure at the moment.
you only get £140 cash if you trade in your xbox360 premium and apparently after 14 days it will go down to £120. but if you get the elite they will promise to let you trade in your premium for £140 as it gives you time to get a special disk from microsoft so you can tranfer you account and details over from your old xbox360.

not the best, but it gives you 2 weeks to try and sell it on flea bay or to a work mate.

oh and 2 blockbusters i went into had the xbox live with game for the original xbox ( works on xbox3600 for £20. so there you have it, an xbox live account , 12 months worth for £20.

i preordered from there last week and they didnt say anything as the time i will pop down to see them tonight :P

where did you see this offer?

i agree with M_Brackley above - this is a genuine offer guys (n girls) - however the price is £44.99 and the faceplate offer is like anything else - first come first served - blockbusters open 10am tomorrow (like most days) so you need to get in quick. I rang them and pre-ordered mine with my account store credit (cost £1 to preorder) and they guaranteed me a faceplate - nice :). I'm going to trade in Call of Juarez for the '£9.99 plus game for any title' trade in deal for my copy of Bioshock.
Also, the faceplate is going for plenty of ££££s on fleabay (upwards of £25) so you can make this deal even cheaper with a little effort - HOT HOT HOT all the way

Yip - I heard the till beep over the phone when she was scanning them :-D

Which Paper Gary? Prob worth getting a copy and taking it in tomorrow morning to see if they will actually match the advertised price...

I've just rang them and am trading The Darkness + £9.99 for the Limited Tin Version & Faceplate. Quoted my membership number and they've put one under the counter for me to pick up tomorrow. :-D

Bonus, already got the normal version plus faceplate through from Play this morning and already listed the faceplate on eBay, so now i'll sell the original and keep the tin one and have another faceplate to sell.

Definitely £34.99, its in The Sun in the bottom left corner on one of the pages. £34.99 - Bioshock standard and Faceplate.

Nice one Sandman - I'm going to get a copy of the Sun and take it in tomorrow and try my luck - seems strange to be having a advertising campain in a national paper and then all the stores are quoting a much higher price!

If anybody managed to pick up a £5 copy of ninety-nine nights from Comet they are trading in at £15 store credit. :thumbsup:

Bargain!

Hmm, if it's only £35 in store and you get a free faceplate, I think I'll take the plunge!

are we going to thank the messager by saying "HIP HIPP....:whistling:

well its in black and white, calling for a copy of the paper on my way home now, then going in with it tomorrow to see what they say

surely theyve got to honour it

wonder what the small print below the advert says though

Oh go on then...have some rep :-D

Actually it's in blue and white

Just phoned my local shop and pre-ordered the tin version as they only got 8 delivered and they said it was £35 but they have not had any faceplates delivered but may get them in this evening.

Will trade in call of juarez or transformers so I only pay £9.99 as part of their trade in offer

Small print: 'Bioshock £34.99 price point for limited period only. Subject to availability and suitability. Bioshock faceplates limited availability - while stocks last.'

Technically they dont have to honour it. If its a printing error and not a bit of retail tricky to get people into stores (which of course would never happen) then they can turn you away as it is seen as a genuine mistake out side of their control. I work for a large electronics company and this newspaper have caused us havoc by printing incorrect prices in our adverts on several occasions.
However this is a great deal and i will certainly be taking my ad down on the off chance that i can get my mits on one!!

Been in and reserved a copy of the game in the tin box for £34.99 and they have reserved a faceplate for me as well. If you reserve it with £5 you get a free rental as well.

Hmm I've just been down and pre-ordered mine, put my £5 down.
They didn't mention the tin version or the free rental either though

Oh and the price comes up at £44.99 just now, but the drop to £34.99 will happen overnight so the cheaper price will be honoured tomorrow

I phoned up and they wouldnt let me reserve it, said its first come first serve altho confirmed the price.

Well I've now got a faceplate on my 360, but currently no Bioshock

Went in to Blockbuster and pre-ordered the game, it came up as 44.99 but the guy agreed with me that it should be 34.99 as he knew about the ads too. He thought that might be for the standard edition only at first but after more chatting he agreed that it was probably for the Ltd. too. He marked it down as a pre-order for the tin version and if tomorrow it turns out that it's 34.99 for standard only then he'll just switch it.

Best part was I asked if I could make sure I was held a faceplate, and he said I could just take it now

You don't have to pay it all right away, I did to save me doing 2 purchases as I'm getting it tomorrow anyway - but if you preorder with at least £5 then you'll get a free rental. You have to use it within 30 days mind.

Damn this website, I was going to wait for a price drop but the nice bit of collectable twisted my arm!

They had the games lying there, was hoping he'd be extra nice and let me take the game but no chance

When i phoned to reserve, they asked me if i was a member to which i replied i was. Gave my membership details and he said "Thankyou Mr H..........., i've put the Tin Version and Faceplate aside for you in the drawer until you come in"

I hate when a company doesn't have the same procedure throughout all stores. :x

Grrr...very true :x

My local store won't allow me to reserve a faceplate....only available to people who come in....however the store in the next town told me they would reserve a faceplate if I put a deposit down tonight. I asked my local store if the would do the same....but no! :roll:

You couldn't make this stuff up.

Anyone know what the trade in value of VT3 is at the moment at blockbusters?

If you trade in VT3 then it is one of the games that will allow you to get Bioshock for £9.99 :thumbsup:

this may not be so as a NEW list will be EMAILED to the shops tommorow and the TRADE list may change

since vt3 has been on the list for ages its 50-50 if it will still be on the £9.99
trade in list

It was advertised on the blockbuster website on Tuesday.
I called them this day to see if i could get this game early.

For sure £35 if what we should all be paying :whistling:

Face plate would be a bonus though
