Im just wondering if you duders pre-ordered black ops 2, where you pre-ordered it, and what version you pre-ordered (regular, hardened, care package, or digital deluxe)

Im pre-ordering the hardened version tomorrow.

I did, then I canceled and got Halo 4. That's not meant as a "I hate CoD, Halo is better" statement it's just what happened. I'll probably end up picking it up in December or January.

I have the DD edition pre-loaded on Steam. Looking forward to release.

#4 Posted by M_Shini (550 posts) -

I did a week or so ago, then cancelled it when i realised £45 for a retail game is crazy and put it towards a £400 Wii U Bundle i may or may not ever use.

Yes, last night.

#6 Posted by thebunnyhunter (1355 posts) -

I too succumbed to temptation and pre-orderd a copy on Amazon...... probably should of skipped blops2 and got Hitman but Zombies looks like fun

#7 Posted by living4theday258 (678 posts) -

@thebunnyhunter: i would pre-order from amazon but they wanted $157 for the hardened edition whereas gamestop wants $80

#8 Posted by RE_Player1 (7550 posts) -

Yup. Skipped MW3 because it looked like shit and pre-ordered the collector's edition of this.

which collectors edition hardened, care package, or digital deluxe?

#10 Posted by PeasantAbuse (5138 posts) -

Yeah I pre-ordered the regular edition from Amazon awhile ago. I'm really excited to play, it looks like Treyarch has done a lot of cool stuff with this one.

#11 Posted by Dixavd (1305 posts) -

I thought this was going to be about how some people who pre-ordered Black Ops 2 from Amazon have already started to recieve it (including the WiiU version - have fun playing that)

#12 Posted by L44 (552 posts) -

As always I thought the last one would be the last time I buy CoD but it's not. It never is.

#13 Posted by FluxWaveZ (19308 posts) -

Yeah, I did. Pre-ordered online from Future Shop because of a $20 discount. I had it pre-ordered prior to getting the discount code anyways since I want the game day 1.

#14 Posted by RE_Player1 (7550 posts) -
@living4theday258 Hardened for PS3. Black Ops was a solid game and everything I've seen of 2 looks great.
#15 Posted by NapTimeSleeper (329 posts) -

I pre-ordered the regular edition at GameStop a couple of days ago. I would prefer to use Amazon but I had a gift card that I hadn't used.

#16 Posted by StrainedEyes (1322 posts) -

Pre-ordered the regular edition from Amazon a few days ago. I thought I was going to skip this one since I just upped to Premium in BF3 and got Halo, but COD is just a good time and I couldn't resist.

#17 Posted by ripelivejam (3562 posts) -

i'm actually tempted to go in for this one, be part of the "phenomenon" as it happens for once (and get my ass soundly trounced online :( )

nothing really against COD, it's just better in small bursts IMO

#18 Posted by murisan (1119 posts) -

Nope. Gonna wait and see how the PC version is. no reason to pre-order on PC.

Redboxing this shit

#21 Posted by Lord_Xp (602 posts) -

I pre-ordered the Care Package Edition, for the ps3. Only five people got it at the Gamestop in my city. That's all they had. Say what you will but I like the game. Especially Treyarch's Black Ops games.

Go ahead, make fun of me, I'm ready.

#22 Posted by pweidman (2299 posts) -

Yep, in October, reg. edition, Amazon. Comes with NT2025, wallpaper, some other misc.stuff, and some Kindle app and a link for a book/story about the villain in the game. Weird.

#23 Posted by Nux (2305 posts) -

No I did not.

i would have gotten the care package edition if i had the disposable income.

I just went to Best Buy a few hours ago after confirming with a friend that we'll be going all in on the zombie mode. Sorry Amazon, but taxes and no gift card is a no go.

And no more 99 cent release date delivery either.  Meanwhile, for a one time payment of 15 dollars to sign up for their gamer's club unlocked program, Best Buy has a 20 dollar credit on nearly every good looking game that's currently announced, including the following: 
 
Call of Duty: Black Ops II - November 13
Far Cry 3 - December 4
Dead Space 3 - February 5
Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance - February 19
BioShock Infinite - February 26
South Park: The Stick of Truth - March 5
God of War: Ascension - March 12
Gears of War: Judgment - March 19
Injustice: Gods Among Us - April 1
Splinter Cell: Blacklist - April 1
The Last of Us - June 1
Grand Theft Auto V
Crysis 3
Dead Island Riptide
Tomb Raider 
 
Amazon is now pretty much dead to me.

Yeah, I think I will be buying my games from Best Buy from now on. That 99 cent release day delivery was a sweet deal while it lasted, though.

#28 Posted by Sooty (8082 posts) -

Nope because I got into the PlanetSide 2 beta, which is way more ambitious and interesting. (also, it's free!)

#29 Posted by billyhoush (1192 posts) -

@FluxWaveZ: Tsilon member? I love getting triple A games for $40 delivered to my house a day earlier than release :D

I didn't know about the $20 credit from getting gamer's club unlocked. Do you know if it would apply to the pre-order I just made on black ops 2 if I sign up now or do I need to cancel my pre-order and get it again?

#31 Posted by Fattony12000 (7068 posts) -

Nope.

#32 Posted by MB (12020 posts) -

I'll Redbox this about a week or two after release and blow through the campaign in one sitting. I normally don't rent games but shooters whose multiplayer modes I have no intention of committing to are a great use of Redbox. Two dollars per night!

#33 Posted by joshthebear (2700 posts) -

Nope. Considering it's more Call of Duty, I think I'll pass.

#34 Posted by JordanK85 (140 posts) -

I'll be waiting for the quick look. What I've read seems interesting but I have yet to see compelling gameplay and after getting burned out on MW3 it's going to have to look quite good to get me to buy it.

#35 Posted by Grillbar (1797 posts) -

no. im most likely going to buy it but i never pre-order the only game that comes to mind is guild wars 2 and the only reason i pre-ordered it was so i could start the games a few days before it was released and get some useless stuff. you could start on the 25 instead of the 28 and i pre-ordered it on the 25 and got in right away with all the benefits so you cant really say that it counts

#36 Posted by xdaknightx69 (448 posts) -

pre-loading it right now on steam

Not sure.  I'd just go there and ask.  You'll need to sign up either way.  I believe you can still do it the day you pickup your copy of the game, but both the game and the unlocked subscription need to appear on the same receipt. 
#38 Posted by DeanoXD (608 posts) -

I pre-ordered the care package as soon as i could, because i want to wear my night vision goggles driving my remote controlled car and trying to fly the helicopter :)

#39 Posted by Svenzon (713 posts) -

No, keeping my fingers crossed for a promo copy at work. It happened with the first Black Ops, so maybe... maybe.

Yeah. I've not been a member for all that long, but it's already been worth it with the discount for Black Ops II. It sucks that tomorrow is a holiday for Canada Post, though.

#41 Posted by billyhoush (1192 posts) -

@FluxWaveZ: What it is?! Noooooooo!! :(

#42 Posted by Turtlebird95 (2311 posts) -

I wanted to but if I did I wouldn't have been able to pick up Halo 4 at launch. I'll probably get it later in the month though.

#43 Posted by laserbolts (5313 posts) -

I never pre order games and it won't change with black ops 2.

#44 Posted by Vonocourt (2123 posts) -

Nope. I'll probably get it sometime in December. Just don't have the cash for it right now with the Wii U arriving next week.

#45 Posted by GunGunW (60 posts) -

My brother is trying to get it from GameFly.

#46 Posted by MightyDuck (1507 posts) -

I ended up breaking down and pre-ordering it. Newegg had it on sale for $48 so I went ahead

When making an account there for the first time, you need to go through some weird trials to access the actual site. It's basically a website where you answer video game trivia, fulfill certain video game achievements and other stuff to gain experience points and level up your account (and gain "lives"). Depending on your level, you can gain access to "Perks", which are usually game discounts such as recently $20 off of Halo 4, Black Ops 2 and Black Ops: Declassified. All of those perks are reserved for Canadians only.

@living4theday258: At least i'm not the only one haha. I'll probably regret spending that much one day. But eh, oh well.

#50 Posted by bio595 (307 posts) -

Nope, will wait till its dirt cheap on steam if I ever play it.
