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.


Same here. I played the heck out of MW2, even when I got pissed off and swore I was done with that game I'd still play the next night with friends.

With BO though, we played zombies. That was it, the mp wasn't all that great, and the DLC maps were some of the worst I've ever experienced.

No go at Kmart on 3rd Street across the street from the Grove in Los Angeles. They already pulled them off the shelf :-(

Roommate works for K-Mart and I showed this deal to her.

She said they got their shipment of MW3 in late Tuesday and that there was an internal memo sent out detailing that the shipment was to be kept in a locked stockroom which only the MOD has keys for.

According to her, its pretty likely that someone took the games out of the box to tag them with price stickers, wasnt paying attention and put them out. Its also extremely likely that the person got fired because k-mart would incur a pretty huge fine from Activision for breaking street release date. Which makes sense because it would be an "unfair business practice". By releasing early, they could corner the market.

Didnt something like this also happen with Halo 3?

KMart did it with Mass Effect 1 in Nov. 2007 and a LOT more copies were sold early on that than with MW3. The current regime was not in charge then and they were able to put the kabosh on it fairly quickly.

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...


Yeah that too. But even USPS does not guarantee delivery dates. The only guarantees are overnight packages that are dropped off by 3 pm PST at least over here. Last year I sold a Black Ops Hardened Edition for $150 for a last minute Xmas gift on ebay. Shipping came out to about $30.

The Kmart thread is insane over this right now! Worried they won't be able to pick up on Tuesday and get the coupons... Pretty rough over there right now!

Why is there no Kmart near me anymore!? Not just for this, but for many other deals.

Had it at my kmart the register wouldn't ring it up then they brought over the manager who told them they couldn't sell it or they would lose their job.

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 :(


Maybe I'm in the minority but I enjoyed Black Ops a hell of a lot more than MW2. At least in Black Ops I didn't encounter: people glitching into the background and killing you while you couldn't touch them, nuke boosting or a constant rain of killstreak rewards that made it so you could barely go outside a building. I'm torn on MW3. I'm sure a ton of my friends will be playing it but Infinity Ward left me with a bad impression after MW2.

As we reported yesterday, copies of Modern Warfare 3 are out in the wild, being sold by retailers that don’t feel like adhering to the street date. It happens with just about every early release, from Toys “R”Us’s leak of BioShock to K-mart’s mistaken pre-sell of Mass Effect to 7-11’s sale of Gears of War 2 before its release. Uusually, the stance of the developer is clear: while they’d rather it not happen, they aren’t actually going to punish those who took advantage of it – who could possibly justify punishing consumers for legally purchasing a game at a retail store? Apparently, Activison.

At first, Microsoft seemed to think there wouldn't be an issue, with Xbox LIVE Director of Policy and Enforcement, Stephen Toulouse, writing, "For those asking about MW3 pre-release play: If your copy is legit and obtained legitly, have fun. It's a great game." But soon after, the story changed. He updated his Twitter with a new response, straight from Activision: "clarification: dblchk'd with Activision. Mw3 pre-release play not authorized," he wrote, "So pls be patient. Playing early may impact your account!"

It's a vague statement to be sure, but it's certainly ominous. It's also somewhat insulting – it's really not the consumer's fault in this case. It's the retailers, the publishers, and the employees, but not at all the customer's.

So there's your warning! If you go to the store and see a copy of a new game on the shelf, don't buy it! If you legally purchase that game and play it online, you might be punished by the publisher (who should have done a better job marking the shipment boxes to avoid confusion).

So then I guess all of those idiots who paid $200 for an early copy from eBay/Craigslist will be trying to do chargebacks and get refunds?

Well if you got one early at least you get a case. Didn't some idiot last year start bragging that he got a disc only copy of BLOPS for $70 bucks just 3 days before its release?
