12:01am is not a midnight launch, it's a 1min past mindnight launch.

I love technicalities :D

Black Ops 2: The ultimate midnight launch price round-up

Postby Squall5005 » 12 Nov 2012, 12:58

The Tesco deal is also available online as of today.

The game for £25 when bought with a £25 PSN card. I used the code TDX-WRKT to get an extra £10 off and used my Club Card points. I paid £10.50 in total and got 8% quicdo cashback.

Nice to see Game still are the most expensive and with midnight openings people will still be stupid enough to go there to buy it,
should keep their coffers full up till crimbo though and their staff in a job till then.

That's the only reason I sometimes buy from GAME... I know how bad it is to lose a job :(

I'm going to the 12.01am launch! :D Can't wait!

Think I was one of the few who actually really enjoyed the Black Ops 1 story campaign :P

Also don't Game send staff out to supermarkets to buy up their stock or is that just a rumour?

I saw Game staff in Comet last week buying some consoles in the fire sale that wasn't actually a fire sale it was 10% off at best.

Well, I assume they were Game staff. They smelt of sweat and had a that glassy dead behind the eyes look about them.
Like a midget at a urinal, I was going to have to stay on my toes.

Wait a sec......people actually go to these midnight launch's, that's....just sad. I actually feel bad for these people. Why not just wait until morning. Like a normal person :|

At the moment for Black Ops 2 a midnight launch is useless because there are people out there who already have the game, in my opinion I think it's an excuse to make someone famous for 5 seconds, as we'll no doubt see a picture of the person who "Supposedly" got the game first.

Last COD i bought was BLOP's, day after the midnight launch (so technically same day). Went to Asda in Leigh, walked stright up to the counter, no queue, asked if they had any blops left which the woman behind the conter replied yeah weve got loads, so I bought a copy... Whole operation took me 5mins from getting out of my car to getting back in

Think the supermarkets do their home work on stock when it comes to game releases these days so no need to panic

Yeah you always see that one guy at 12.00.01am getting his photo taken while receiving his copy, i've noticed how he is always dressed in 'tacticool' gear aswell, probably ashamned. I know i would be.

Yeah. No one can get the game first anyway, and to be honest it's not like it matters.
