    I wish I was but alas I must wait until tomorrow. I don't think Stephens Green Gamestop opens at midnight.:rolleyes:

    Going to get it in game in dundrum tonight.

    Wouldn't normally shop there myself, but was given a 50 euro voucher for the place, three weeks ago. It's been burning a hole in my wallet since then.

    Call of Duty 2010?

    Nerds!

    I'm waiting on my free copy that won't be arriving anytime soon thanks to postal strikes.


  • Registered Users Posts: 101 ✭✭ Fuzzballs


    Do you have to have it pre ordered? And how much is the std edition?
    And this wont be in any bargain bin for 2 years. COD4 is still €39 most places.
    COD4 map packs were only reduced on Live this week. .


  • Moderators, Category Moderators, Computer Games Moderators Posts: 47,105 CMod ✭✭✭✭ Retr0gamer


    You'll get it without preordering from any shop that isn't taking preorders like tescos. Seems to be the cheapest is Smyths if you have a discount card but harvey norman and tesco are pretty reasonable as well.


  • Registered Users Posts: 101 ✭✭ Fuzzballs


    @retrogamer

    So what are the Tescos and Smyths prices?

    44.99, you'll get 10% off that with a smyths loyalty card. However they might be giving out preorders first. I wouldn't worry about the game selling out though. I've never seen a game sell out.


  • Registered Users Posts: 101 ✭✭ Fuzzballs


    Sound thanks. Think ill head to Tesco as its closer to me.
    Was getting sick of Nazi Zombies anyway ;)


  • Moderators, Category Moderators, Computer Games Moderators Posts: 47,105 CMod ✭✭✭✭ Retr0gamer


    Make sure it's a tescos that stocks games, some of them don't. Think a few of the 24hr ones will be selling it at 12 tonight as well.


  • Registered Users Posts: 101 ✭✭ Fuzzballs


    It will be the Clare Hall one so should be safe. 24hr. Worst comes and ill head to an xtravision and pay the extra tenner.

    I wont be touching any newer COD titles after the hostile actions towards the PC community. In fact I'll probably ignore Activision altogether until they admit their mistakes. I'd encourage other PC gamers to do the same.


  • Moderators, Computer Games Moderators Posts: 21,729 Mod ✭✭✭✭ Kiith


    I doubt i'll get it at all. I'm more interested in the single player side of most games, and at 4-5 hours, there's no way i'm paying €50+ for it.

    Plus there a bunch of money hungry ****ers who totally screwed pc gamers over.

    It doesn't support dedicated servers effectively destroying the pre-existing COD on-line community.

    WHAT?! why they did that? will it be random match making like xblendeR?!


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,894 ✭✭✭ TinCool


    Have it preloaded on Steam ready to rock and roll.

    Afraid so. And they did it to 'Balance the game'.


  • Moderators, Computer Games Moderators, Social & Fun Moderators Posts: 77,811 Mod ✭✭✭✭ Sephiroth_dude


    Think I'll wait till tomorrow :).


  • Registered Users Posts: 13,883 ✭✭✭✭ Cuddlesworth


    They can keep their game. And shove it where the sun doesn't shine.

    Balance what?!?! pc version allways ahead of console becouse of: mous+keyboard+servers.

    You could actually stick to one or two and play with lads that you know... this is just taking a piss...

    Ah well, we still have M+K, but something tells me they will find away how to take that away from us and dumb down to consoles...


  • Registered Users Posts: 101 ✭✭ Fuzzballs


    The 360 versions of COD didnt have dedicated servers and the connections are fine 99% of the time. Plus host migration if the existing host leaves.

    thats actually not the point. you could stick to one server, and allways play in a group of same people, and make a small comunity out of it. now its just pure random

    Servers cost money to run. Im sure their decision was based on that simple fact. Its going to happen to many more games im sure. Unless you pay a monthly subscription of course.
