I had 2 Halo $25 coupons and wanted 2 BO2 bonuses so I ordered 1 from my regular account and then created another account under my sister's name and used a diff email & CC for the 2nd order (same address)


Damn that's a good idea. Thanks for the tip!

How do I know if my order has shipped? Do they send out an email? Pre-ordered Black Ops 2 and doesn't seem to have shipped yet, was hoping for 2 day shipping


Yes, a shipment notification goes out.

I ordered it from the MS store, and it probably won't come this week. Could I go to Gamestop tomorrow, buy a copy, play that, then return the one I got from the MS Store?


Yes, the UPC's will be the same since all launch copies will include the Nuketown 2025 bonus map. It's the ones later on without the map that may not have the same UPC.

Now playing:

:ps3: God of War: Ascension

Return the one you got from the MS Store to GS? I don't see why not.

COD is all about making money

I never buy those COD passes since they're way too expensive -- I'm willing to pay $25-30 for a season pass if I like the game, but not more than that

As opposed to other video games... which are free. ;)

I usually buy most map packs anyway, so a $10 savings plus the nuketown zombies map is worth it for me

You know what I mean -- Activision is greedier than other game makers. $60 retail for a game plus another $50 for DLC is a lot ($60 if you buy them separately), but they have a strong gamer base so they can do whatever they want

At least with other games they sell the season pass for $25-30 which is reasonable

Both of my orders from the evening are now showing "in process" and I have pending charges on both cards so it'll probably ship soon (not as long of a wait as Halo)

Does anyone know if the $25 gift card you get from Halo 4 has an expiration date?

If you ordered online and got a $25 coupon then 12/31

If you bought it in store and got an actual gift card then check the back of the card (most likely it doesnt expire)

Yes, this is fine, but remember that sometimes stores have exclusive games and UPCs. I learned this the hard way as I bought Halo 4 from Wal*Mart to wait for my Microsoft Store copy and I realized that they had different UPCs (since WaltMart had this different mountain dew insert). So always double check!

Placed my order at 7:24 pm yesterday, so far im seeing this all day.

A UPS shipping label has been created. Once the shipment arrives at our facility, the tracking status--including the scheduled delivery date--will be updated.

Mine is via UPS Ground across the country (assuming it's coming from Harrisburg, PA like Halo 4 did), might get lucky and have it delivered before the weekend.

You have to keep in mind that the season pass price is based on the amount/value of the DLC it includes. A $25-$30 season pass usually contains about $30-$40 worth of DLC if it were bought individually. The COD season pass includes $60 worth of DLC as well as a couple other extras. Now whether a map pack on it's own should be $15 is another debate, but the season pass is still a good value compared to the individually priced DLCs.

For some reason my Halo code is not working on this...hmmm
From MS Chat:
it is part of our pre-order policy that those codes cannot be used on clearance items or other pre-orders.
They claim I cant use my Halo 4 promo code on any pre-orders.


Huh??? I was gonna to use the $25 halo coupon on BF, say suppose M$ store get some nice deals.

Based what the cs said guess I have to spend $25 on a full priced item? This is bs.

Despite what CS may have said above, I had no issues using the $25 code from my Halo 4 pre-order on the Black Ops 2 pre-order.

Did MSFT.com do a Black Friday deal last year? If so, they probably will do it again, but since I couldn't recall if they had or hadn't, I decided not to risk it and ordered BO2.

I was able to get the code to work ...It was mainly an issue with using a pre order bonus on a pre-order, which I did get working after a little help from here.

Yep, same here.

Points may come take a few days. So thats normal, sadly.

UPS just dropped off Black Ops 2. It came from southern CA so it was a quick trip via Ground. Not bad considering I ordered less than 24 hours prior to release.

Apologies for the double posting, but I'm planning to sell this sealed and would like to know if anything besides the Nuketown 2025 map code is inside. TIA!

edit: nevermind, finally found relevant video. Looks like it's just the Nuketown map and a 2-day XBLG trial. The avatar stuff must be from the Hardened and Care Package editions.
