Gargus, is that you?
Not sure why people would buy these up. I would just get the game+4000 msp.
Since because COD Elite (50$ value) will come with the Hardened edition, I don't think there will be any cool $20 GC deals. I would almost be like get the Hardened edition for $80 instead of $100.
I have mine pre ordered from Gamestop and Toys R Us. Getting Dark souls from Gamestop, It took about 2 days for me to get after it shipped. Whichever comes first doesn't get returned to the store.
It also kinda sucks when the deal is just trying to find something at MSRP.
If you guys check out the Kmart stickied thread at the top, I'll think you'll be happy with what they're offering for the standard edition combined with a 4000 point card deal. Plus at a few select Kmarts they're having a midnight release with 4-5 guaranteed Hardened editions for each platform.
