You're linking to Black Ops for the 360 link :P Here is the right link.

Comes out to the same price over at Amazon except they give you a $10 GC. So if you already have GC's or trade-ins at Amazon go there.

I am in NY so newegg is a better deal for me. I love how fast newegg ships and comes to.

I hope they fixed the stuff that was so bad in the beta for the 360. I did not like how you died it felt and looked odd. That was one of the biggest gripes people had about it.

How do you figure that? Even with 10% tax, it's still $5 cheaper than Amazon. Yes, you don't get a GC, but not everyone wants to deal with the whole hassle of Amazon gaming certs.

Played the beta on PC. Would rather shoot myself in the foot, or play C:SS. Or TF2. OR MW2.

Exactly! We're not only cheap gamers, we're also asses.

"Good enough for me," I say; Life's too short to dwell on $5.

Holy shit you guys pay 10% tax in Arnold land, ouch ! :lol:

If your paying tax on the Newegg deal it'll cost you $54.99

If your paying tax on the Amazon deal then yeah it's cheaper going the Newegg route. Did you notice I said Amazon might be better if you have store credit you can use plus you get back a $10 GC? ;)

I live in FL so I don't pay any tax. Either way i'll wait for the game to drop to $19.99 which doesn't take real long for a MOH game to do.

Hmm.. $10 price drop from MSRP, already? This game will be floating around the clearance racks/bins sooner then everyone thinks.

Thanks for posting...reminded me to cancel my $39 pre-order from the EA Store I placed back in the spring.

If there was ever a demo to convince someone NOT to buy it, this one was it...a misguided attempt to mesh Battlefield multi-player with COD styled action. I think EA must know they've got a bomb on their hands if they're already lowering the MSRP (if that's the case). And yeah, I think every copy is a "LE" like the last Battlefield game.

A sale an a specific retailer is EA saying the game sucks and a MP beta is indicative of an entire game including a SP that is made by completely different people. Right then.

Had this on order from NewEgg at 56.99 but since they don't auto-change looks like I need to cancel that and re-order.

I could have sworn, only the PS3 version was an LE? I remember they made that announcement alongside the LE for Dead Space 2 at E3. I guess I misinterpreted something. I know the PS3 version is supposed to include a revamped version of MOH: Frontlines, so that's probably the exclusive.

I believe EA is calling all launch copies of the game for all platforms as a LE, similar to what they did with launch copies of Battlefield: Bad Company 2 which had some early access to a couple of weapons. As far as anything additional beyond whatever the first run copies of MoH will have, the PS3 has the Frontline remake.

Like I said, EA Store had it at $39.99 this past spring for pre-ordering. So this isn't the first "sale" as it were.

Either way, the MP beta sucking it up is enough for me to not take a chance on it even at $10 or $20 off. If the SP turns out to be great or the MP that much different (fat chance IMO), I'll gladly eat my words and buy it -- after a price drop. Which I get the feeling will happen sooner than later given the largely negative reaction most had to the MP beta.

I remember when MOH came out it was strictly for the PC and that was awesome! Then again that was a longgggg time ago.

I played one on either the PSX or PS2 (memory is shot) and thought to myself, "What the $&#@ happened here?". Needless to say, I haven't picked up the title since. This game won't be an exception.

Too many of these publishers are pushing titles too quickly and not letting their developers "do their thing" and thus creating garbage that seems like the last FPS. EA is losing it big time.

MoH was actually a PS1 series for a couple of games before the first PC title came out which was the same year Frontline came out for PS2 in 2002. I never got around to playing the PC versions but I enjoyed the console games at the time. I don't think they have aged well at all however.

I enjoyed the pc and older psx games oh MOH. The beta for 360 was plagued badly but there was something i enjoyed in it playing with friends. I do not think they will have enough time to fix enough things. I put the preorder there just in case i am bored and nothing to play when it is about to come out. I doubt i will keep the preorder but safer to leave it idle for now just in case.

I hope they fix issues with this game cause there was a lot of fun i had in MP on the 360. The way people die was just ticking me off so much. But i did put about 25 hours into the beta and shocked i kept playing it that long. It has something special but man it is plagued to death.

I believe this will hit rock bottom cause the beta hype killed this so bad. I never in my gaming life see a game get so bashed and hated from a beta/demo they put out to the public. I used to beta test for sony and man nothing was bad as this. I guess MS demanded them to fix a lot of bugs before they put it on live. The pc beta was just downright bad.

MOH: Frontline was and is one of my favorite PS2 games. Of course, there was no multiplayer, so all the love was on the campaign, and it showed.

Based on the videos I have seen, this game looks like its going to be pretty damn good. That being said, I'm still gonna wait on reviews to decide whether or not I'm going to pick it up. Nice find tho, OP.

Trust me the videos make this game look amazing and plays the same. If i got the cash when it comes out i will leave this preorder going. I know i would regret buying at even this price cause this will most likely drop down to $20-$30 within a few weeks maybe a month max. The rep this game got has to be the lowest i seen ever. This is good for the people like myself that would grab it so cheap. I guess i made up my mind i will wait for the drop in price on this one. The exclusive guns were in the beta and i could live without them.

They've already been posting new MP videos with things fixed that people complained about in the beta. I was hoping this could be the game that MW2 wasn't, so I'm gonna preorder anyway.

Without a freaking doubt. That game was epic.

Was the MP beta really that bad? DICE developed the MP portion of the game. I have a hard time believing that it's going to be a complete dud.

It played like ass. Like Battlefield's old leftovers.

Here's hoping they massively overhauled the beta...but I will rent before buying.
