    Because it costs more to buy in than most games - the RRP is actually €69.99

    Just noticed the tesco ad below which says they will be stocking it tonight in the majority of stores. No price though.

    I've the Elite Edition pre-ordered from Gamestop - 100e, 20e deposit paid.

    Store in Drogheda opened from 11, collection at 12, hopefully Pizza too :P

    Online prices are different to store prices.

    Example would be battlefield which was 43 I think and I refunded it as it was delivered late, they gave me credits instead which were worth 50 euro so I assume it's 50 euro to buy in store.

    Was the same with Dark Souls.

    Just purchased MW3 on Steam because I was going to buy Cod4 anyway for my new pc so I might aswell get MW3+cod4 for 59 euro.

    I'll try ring later to make sure. Don't want to go in at 12 to find it is closed!.

    @ner69 I would say either Tesco or HMV for around 45 euro. Nothing confirmed yet but they would be the best bet.
    HMV is on Patricks street near the blue Mc Donalds and Tesco is in paul street centre.

    HMV confirmed a price to me of €52 :)

    Which HMV? Thats very disappointing considering every new release since the last year or 2 has been €45.

    I'm really wondering if i need to get this tonight. I've already a load of games and I'm finding battlefield to be great craic.

    with hmv the price on the system before launch is usually the catalogue price, if its cheaper on launch day they'll only know today once the stock is on the system or tomorrow, thats what happened when I was there but that was a few years back. like we'd pre-order a game for someone weeks before release and it'd be priced at say 54.99 but on launch day it would be 44.99, the higher price is what it'll wind up being eventually once its no longer a chart discounted item. if that makes sense.

    of course it could just be Activision are pricing it higher as they know they'll sell a mountain of it, didnt they do that with MW2, it was a "premium" title so had a higher price point that regular games.

    Hopefully it'll be different in cork although tesco will probably be cheaper

    Hello all I ordered MW3 (PC) with gamestop with the express post. decided on the extra post as battfield was late (long weekend:mad:). Anyway it has still not shipped so I checked my account and it said expected ship date 8/11/11 ? so you see my concern have any of you used this in the past thanks


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,941 ✭✭✭thebigbiffo


    for anyone interested i just checked with Tesco (24 hour) in Portlaoise - they'll have it on sale from midnight for €43. This seems to be €7 cheaper than Gamestop. I assume all 24 hour Tesco stores are the same...

    Great news. Tesco it is. Now whether to get it tonight or not.


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,845 ✭✭✭Jet Black


    Not sure if this was posted already.
    Call of Duty MW3 will be available in the majority of Tesco Stores at 12am Tuesday 8th November in our 24hour Stores. We will be giving away a free copy to the first 5 customers in our 13 Tesco Extras throughout the country, just be one of the lucky first 5 in line to get it free.

    The 1st 70 people to buy MW3 in the 13 Tesco Extra Stores will also receive a free Pot Noodle and bottle of Mountain Dew so nothing will distract you from play.

    Price details will be released on Tuesday. T&Cs apply

    if it's a Tesco Express (a 24 hour Tesco with all the various departments - ie not just food) then yes.
