Yeah, I was going to hold off on this due to BF3...but I don't know if I can fight the temptation any longer. :lol:

For everyone asking "why wait?" It's because they are hoping for more post release sales. Why drop it before release if you hit your sale numbers? Plus it's been released so this isn't covered by the preorder guarantee.

Wish they would add some kind of deal for PS3, like a credit towards a PSN card

actually preorder price guarantee is valid until end of release day.

it probably has more to do with the last minute cancellations or the activision map. Amazon had no deal attached and almost every retail store was having a midnight launch. It was a no brainer for most.

Amen! That's all I want. Even a $15 off a $50 PSN card would have been nice.

So I ordered it for 56.99 of course and talked to CSR via chat...they gave me a $5.00 credit on Amazon items. Basically $8 off MSRP, no tax and free RDD. I'll take it. And my live expires in March so I guess I'll use that $25 off also.

The price drop does not make sense because all the preorders now get the discount too. I still think you will be able to get it for $35 to $40 by black Friday. I am holding out.

Dig this. I canceled my pre-Order on Sunday and just got this email! :-)

People will be going to Kmart for their xbox copy to get elite for $30. Sucks we don't get any thing like that.

I'm sure they could/would have, but unfortunately, for some still unknown reason, Amazon no longer sells PSN cards/codes or PSN game download codes. :cry:

But I guess that also is determined by the publisher or Sony, so who really knows for certain.

You can barely get Blops for $35-40. No way MW3 is that cheap in less than 3 weeks. I also think CAG is starting to romanticize Black Friday. Yes there are deals but not the kind of stuff people keep talking about. Game release in the last 8 weeks are not going to see $30 price points unless the sold bad.

Talked to CSR using livechat and they simply said that the price adjustment should automatically get done for any pre-orders.

Did your order ship yet? I could only get the CSR to give me the $5 promo credit.

Yep. Mine shipped this afternoon. Their website also states the following:

"If your order enters the shipping process before the release date and the price is lowered on the release date, we will automatically refund your credit card for the difference between the price you were charged and the release-date price within 48 hours of the release date"

Should be a non-issue.

Can I do anything to get $5 added to my account? My order of MW3 shipped on Monday 4:36 pm. I sent customer service a message and this is what I got.


I'm sure it's disappointing to see the lower price on the "Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3" you recently purchased. Our prices regularly change, and the price you paid when your order shipped was the lowest price we were able to offer at the time.
You can visit our pricing policies in our Help pages to read more:

Although prices fluctuate, our service does not. I hope you'll give us another opportunity to serve you in the future.







Thank you for your recent inquiry. Did I solve your problem?

Best regards,

Looks like the price drop happened for Uncharted 3 too. Not sure if I want MW3 after reading some reviews.

Agreed. If you find MW3 for 40 dollars on Black Friday I'll be surprised. 50 dollars is more like it.

When I ordered the 12-month sub of Xbox LIVE last night I got $10+$25 off, I'm pretty sure it applied the "turtle beach" credit to LIVE. So I ended up getting it for $25.

Thanks Cheapy and Amazon! I don't think you can beat this deal. I was planning to drive 45 mins one way to Toys R us for the $40 gift card but that would make me buy a 2nd video game that I wasn't planning on purchasing.

I just bought the code, I got the extra $10 too.
