Doesn't kmart's register block them from selling the game early?

obviously not people were able to get it through, its because the boxes were marked for immediate sale, not wait till 11/8/11 which they should be.

Turns out that the shipments of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 sent out to Kmart came in boxes that said to put the game out immediately. Typically when stores get games early they're marked with the date the games are meant to hit shelves. So in this case those boxes should have said to put the games out on Nov. 8.

Unfortunately I'm working and by the time my lunch break hits today, things will probably be fixed. I'd love an early shot at this game as BF3 is too frustrating.

Seriously? Getting a game 5 days early is worth $175 to some people? Must be fucking nice to have more money than brains.

What.. you've got your priorities mixed up! I'd take $100+ (Conservative estimated) of profit over a $15 gaming coupon any day

Not to mention the fact that they won't get it until Saturday with shipping, if they're lucky.

Still, if you have the money to spend, there are worse things you could waste your entertainment money on than a few days of early access to a game.

Wow, it's barely started and already someone has a bag full and they're going on Ebay.

People are dicks.

What's going to suck is the people who are waiting to buy MW3 on release day/week to take advantage of the SYWR deals may not be able to take advantage of it now if Kmart's ususally slim stock of new releases gets depleted by resellers. As far as I know Josh (Kmart representative) does not offer rain checks if the store sells out of something.

Also not to mention that Microsoft will likely ban or at least suspend any account they catch playing it early. Hope these people who were smart enough to spend $175 to play it early are also smart enough to play it offline. (Also hope the single-player campaign is really, really good and takes a week to complete.)

They will not ban anyone who purchased a legit copy of the game and plays it online.

Trust me, I ran a mom and pop video game store for over 3 years and played every big title a couple of days to a week early and never had anything happen to me or any of my employees.

Worse case scenario is they reset the stats you've accumulated on release day so you'll be forced to start over and be on even playing ground with other players.

IIRC they've said they're going to do just that. Maybe it was that they wouldn't save your online progress after each game until the game's official release date.

No go at my sketch location. Would've figured they, if any around here would do it. The nicest people but not so aware of games. Alluded to a streeted box in the back for the 8th. Didnt care to pester. People are offering up to 120 on craigslist for a copy. Can't say no to that chance...

When did these magical boxes arrive? Late yesterday?

My Kmart was in the middle of there morning meeting when I stopped by and the guy was just turning the tvs on. Curious if they even checked the shipment yet...

Will go back around 1130.

No, absolutely wrong. So many reviewers would be screwed if Microsoft did this.

I was at target Tues morning and they had a huge pile of them. They may have got them as early as Monday.

Went to a local Kmart and nothing on the shelves. The price tag is up, but no games in case. Will try a different Kmart on the way to work around noon.
