Call of Duty: Black Ops is released tomorrow, and while some of you may have pre-ordered it, or might be queuing up in cold for a midnight launch, many will have been waiting for the retail price wars. So here it is, a round up of the best Call of Duty: Black Ops deals here in the UK.
HMV were the first to announce their special deal on Call of Duty: Black Ops. You can purchase Call of Duty: Black Ops from HMV for just £7.99, if you trade in a copy of Medal of Honor.
Naturally, the supermarket giants are trying to get on the Call of Duty: Black Ops hype bandwagon with their own special deals for Activision’s mega title. Rumours that Sainsbury’s and Morrisons are offering Call of Duty: Black Ops for just £25 having quite come true, but both supermarkets are offering their own deals.
Sainsbury’s are offering Call of Duty: Black Ops for £27.97 when £30 or more is spent in store, or for £39.97 if bought on its own. Meanwhile, Morrisons are selling Call of Duty: Black Ops for £29.99 when bought with any other chart title, or £39.99 if bought individually.
Tesco are hoping that the lure of PSN or Xbox Live credit will be enough to encourage you to buy Call of Duty: Black Ops from them. If you purchase a 2100 Xbox Live Points Card, 3 months of Xbox Live Gold membership, or a £20 PSN Card, you’ll be able to pick up Call of Duty: Black Ops for £25. Tesco are also offering the game for £39.90 when not bought in conjunction with the offer.
Meanwhile, Asda are being aggressive in offering Call of Duty: Black Ops for just £4.97 if you trade in a copy of Fable III, Fallout: New Vegas or Star Wars: The Force Unleashed 2. Blockbuster are also offering a trade in deal, with Call of Duty: Black Ops on sale for just 99p if two of the following games are traded in – Medal of Honour, Fable 3, Fallout New Vegas, MMA, F1 2010 or Star Wars The Force Unleashed.
Naturally, the specialist games retailers are also offering deals on Call of Duty: Black Ops. Both Game and GameStation are selling Call of Duty: Black Ops for £24.99 when bought with any other chart title. Alternatively, you can get the same price by trading in Halo: Reach, Dead Rising 2, F1 2010 or FIFA 11 when picking up Call of Duty: Black Ops from GAME or GameStation.
Finally, if you live near one of the handful of Best Buy stores in the UK, you can purchase Call of Duty: Black Ops for £29.99 with no strings attached.
So Train2Game, if you’re buying Call of Duty: Black Ops this week, where will you be picking it up from? Do you prefer the supermarket discounts, or would you prefer to trade in recent games that you’ve already finished? Will anyone be swapping their copy of Medal of Honor for Call of Duty: Black Ops at HMV?
And who is actually going to brave the very likely wind and rain in order to attend a midnight launch tonight?
