My store had them in the case but there was a sign in front games that said Not Available Until Nov. 8. So they were most likely selling them early this morning before they got the email from corporate telling them to put the kibosh on MW3.

Thing is the game has been quiet and under wraps, no online stories about it in early development or anything. I think because it's nothing special. I'm not even going to buy it this year, too many good games upcoming like Skyrim and Zelda.


I don't understand how people compare games like Skyrim and Zelda to COD. I get COD every year for 2 reasons. 1 because it's always fun and you can just put it in and play even if you just have like a half hour or something, 2 because it's the one game that everybody on my friendslist has and we can all play together. I have a lot of friends with family and kids who don't get out as much and this is pretty much our best opportunity to "hang out" on an everyday basis.

I have no intention on playing this game. I was just going to sell them, lol. No go in Buffalo, Ny. I'll check the K-Mart before work.

So if you want the game by release day...you need to pay 11.35 for expedited shipping. But if you want it by Saturday, it will cost you 32 bucks. lol.

Has anyone on this board found copies for sale at Kmart? This whole thing sounds like a waste of gas so far.

Find a KMart Here: http://www.kmart.com...r=1320323412129

Proof (not me): http://www.ebay.com/...496857537404055

This will probably be today only if your lucky at all and only this morning, I would run out to your stores before work, school, nap time, etc.

Post if you were successful!

The system should prevent all sales today up until release. Should be a dead issue.

Because they want to make sure the game is in stores early so people can buy their crack fix right at release.:) I can still remember waiting on release day for GS to 'get in their shipment'. UPS dude would show up at like 1-2pm on release day. By that time, I coulda likely went somewhere else and bought it that already had received it. Of course I woulda been paying CASH at those other places.:cry:


Yes yes, those days were not too far in the past. I imagine companies (both the stores and publishers) got sick and tired of getting complaints. Up until just a few years ago the advertised date was actually the SHIP DATE. Little did most people know, since it was advertised as the RELEASE DATE. I remember sometimes stores like Best Buy wouldn't get games in until a Wed or even Thursday for Tuesday releases...

I do like the story campaign, and the online is ok. I'm just saying why not make money if you can.

No go in Erie pa. Checked buffalo road and east grand view. Grand view had the sticker, no game. Buffalo road is miserable and didn't even have stickers.

I still don't know why anybody wants this that badly. It's just MW1 + MW2 with some added fees here and there.

I'd gladly wait until release day, but there are two reasons,

1) Black Ops sucks

2) Playing MW2 for the past 2 years is getting boring :(

I agree

I honestly don't know why Madden & NCAA get so much shit every year for doing the same thing!

Exactly. They all suck. Gaming has gotten boring. And after 2+ years of MW2 I really don't know if I could play another FPS as much as I played that. It got old.

Most of the fun really lies in playing with a group of friends. If the guys I play with on a weekly basis weren't buddies in real life, I wouldn't have played so much.

Just checked a different Kmart and no go. However I talked to a guy who just purchased one at a Kmart across town around 12:30. He bought the last copy but said they were selling them since some stores already had so they had to sell them too! This might get interesting...

My store had them in a box about to put them out but upon trying to purchase a copy, after asking for your age it popped up and said it was too early to sell it.

And it's official

They still got duped. Congrats to those who got in on it. I know I tried!

Didn't know there was another Erie CAG in dis joint! I left work at 9:00 this morning and ran to those same 2 locations. Just got a chance to get back on the computer or I could've saved you the trip, was going to post those same results.

Be on the lookout for a PSN add-a-friend from me!

Went to two. No dice. One had controllers out for it. Lazy K-Mart employees, for once, win.

One store didn't even have Uncharted or Sonic Generations out yet.

No dice in Maplewood MO Kmart. Manager came out as the clerk was stocking the game on the shelf and stopped him at the last minute. :(

Maplewood! That's where I grew up! Is that KMart on Manchester still open?

Anyway, any Chicago CAGs finding luck with this? I was planning on getting the game w/my Batman $30 coupon on Tuesday. So problem waiting until then.

No go in Boca Raton, FL. Will check Hollywood, FL later today. Sounds like all Kmarts have been alerted by Activision...

It may be just as simple as Madden having a 10 year head start on COD.

You could do an Expedited flat rate envelope for about $20 with USPS.

Mail it today, then they'd have it on Saturday at the latest. It seems like a moot point now, anyhow...

You could always try BB cuz with the $10 off coupon today Sonic Generations is only $30 there.;) I just got done watching some gameplay of the game and I must say I'm impressed.
