    Black Ops Preorders - Who have you gone with?

    Hey guys

    So, I've been thinking of pre-ordering Black Ops, debating with myself to get the regular or hardened edition (whether the maps warrant the extra initial cost or should I spend the money on MS points and buy separately...). Hopefully the game will live up to the expectations (being as good as or better than MW2, and at the very least a shed load better than WaW multiplayer).

    So, in my debate, I wonder, who to buy from? Better still - who have you preordered with? And which version are you going for?

    (I'm also hoping Sainsburys will sell it for £26 on release like last year, online, and pick up a second copy for myself as my brother will likely take the first one).

    *Edit* Game is released on 9th of November

    havent preordered-will just buy it from the cheapest supermarket

    Waiting to see if Sainsburys do it for under £30.

    15% staff discount
    £15 on my nectar card.

    seems a good deal.

    Same as Barky

    Waiting to see what the supermarkets do with pricing

    Big Sainsburys, Morrisons, Tesco and Asda within 2 miles of each other.. All on my way to work, so will just pick a copy up in the morning.

    I've ordered, but can't tell you who with - or I'd have to kill you!!!

    Like others, will wait and see what supermarkets do. If no good deals then i won't bother and will wait.

    since when? not at our store.

    tbh,we still have so many gift cards from the asda fifa 10 trade in that will probs buy from asda no matter what their price is,since its technically free!

    Waiting on ASDA or Tescos to do a proper job of stocking up.

    When's it out again?

    I did this on Saturday. They had a box displaying it in my store where the games are. Torquay. They gave me a printout with a reference number on.

    Thats what I thought. Its a no lose situation. I can go and pick it up if i like the price or get my money back if i dont. I had to take the box to the customer service desk. It took them a while to work out what to do. It looked like it was nationwide as they had a folder and infomration on what to do. i was going to post this but wasnt sure if it was a deal.

    I know that this isn't nation wide, the store where I work isn't doing the pre-orders

    Actually i've just pre-ordered for £25 from Woolies..........if it works then bonus........if not then oh well.

    That'd be ok.....i'll most likely only play the single player, complete it in a few hours like the others and then shove it on eBay. X)

    Only used Woolies the once and paid by paypal (as again i have now) so if they cancel then it gets refunded and if i get it then bonus. They can't add anything later to a paypal payment

    Last time i got 12 months live for £20 no probs with them X)

    Yeah it's unlikely the store where I work is aswell cause I'm sure I'd have noticed :P Although I haven't been in since last week and I'm off this week, I'll ask someone on GM when I'm next in.

    Nice one. I was just looking there, but hardened is £20 more than regular - I don't care about the medal and am indifferent about the avatar stuff so really getting regular and buying the DLC is cheaper anyway. Meh.

    Think I'll put a pre-order in with Amazon at full whack and hope the Woolies one comes through too Unless anyone has a few vouchers I could use for Zavvi? Aside from a 10% walkers code?

    Just ordered from Woolies - Delivery dates Tuesday 9 Nov
