Where can I see if my store is having a midnight release for Halo 4?


My local store wasn't on the online list but they have some posters in the front and inside saying that they're doing midnight launch for halo and blops 2.

Subbed to @gamer and preordered ACIII, Halo 4 and Blops 2 today :)

They're talking about Medal of Honor, not Assassin's Creed.

But yes, EA is definitely doing it on purpose. The first one did not get very good reviews(and from what I played in the beta, neither will this one), so I guess they're trying to keep reviews out of the picture for the first week of sales.


I'm not so sure this is the reason. I think it more has the do with the massive day 1 patch for MoH: Warfighter. which was most likely put in to "complete" the game -> http://www.xbox360ac...nely-Large.html

They probably didn't want reviews until the patch was out because the game was shipped incomplete (hence the extensive day 1 patch), now the reason for the "incompleteness" in the first place could either be:

A) Because the game needed to go gold early enough to meet the release date, giving EA a claim on the FPS market until BlOps 2 comes out a month later, cause let's face it, very few people are going to be playing Warfighter when BlOps 2 is finally released, just from hype alone. MoH doesn't have the fanbase like Battlefield does and this is EA's only military-FPS this holiday.

or B) They've been tireless in working on fixes for bugs reported in the beta, and wanted to roll them out ASAP.

Considering how recently the beta started and ended though, and knowing EA's usual tactics, it's most likely A, which is you know, bullshit.

OK I pre-ordered in store MoH. I want to take advantage of both the B2G1 and still get the $20 certificate. Do I need the games to be scanned in a certain order? How do I "pickup" the pre-order, do I just bring my reciept for the $5 pre-order and the games I want up to the counter? Sorry I usually just do online pre-ordering.

I really do, but I still think the promotion is convoluted and could of been handled better

I guess it just requires some legwork and persistence and a good helping of luck


Preorder online and avoid all the trouble. Always got my $20 RZ cert and DLC codes.

Make sure they exchange MOH and not as a return. Just have all three games on receipt and should be fine.

Has anyone gotten their 1000 Pts for dishonored to post yet?


I just got mine today. I pre-ordered online the day before it came out and had it shipped.

Do people who did online preorders get theirs earlier or somethin? I preordered Dishonored in-store the Saturday before its release and my points haven't cleared yet.

Given how my other promo games have gone (2 weeks and a day after release date), the points should be cleared tomorrow, but I'm still curious as to how someone who preordered after me got his points first.

Well I've been Silver since February, so I'm baffled as to how he got his first, especially if he ISN'T silver.

While I agree the program can be better I disagree that the program is convoluted. I've preordered $200 worth of RZ certs since BB has started this and I have had 0 issues. The offer is clear enough that it isn't convoluted. The only issues are at the POS with a misinformed employee and customers that don't know how to read fine print.

Next time just preorder online. It will resolve 99% of your issues.

Somewhat off topic but this game has been brought up several times in this thread so thought I'd ask here....Has anyone found any deals at Best Buy or other retailers for WWE 13 yet? Little surprised BB isn't throwing a 15 dollar gift card with it like they did for Xcom or Pro Evol soccer.

My Borderlands 2 RZ points just cleared today after 30 days. I waited till the last day to pick it up to maximize my price match window. I ordered online for in store pick up and I'm silver, neither of which expedited the speed at which the points had cleared.

Dont even bother trying to get the $5 deposit added to the purchase just purchase the games. After the RZ points post you can get a refund for the $5 or move(exchange) the pre-order to another title. All of the pre-order that I've done for this promo none of the $5 pre-orders have been used when I purchased the games. I've gotten all of my $20 credit before 30 days.

I really want to use my $20 credit on AC3 from RE6. I think I might just wait a while and hope I get credit before the 3rd. I get it and then use that plus price match toys r us so I can get it for $48. Then with $20 re6 credit, $5 cert, and about $10 from trade in credit, brings it down to $13. pretty damn good.

You lose out on any pre-order DLC that is offered by doing that. As long as MoH rings up properly, you'll have no problem doing the B2G1 and getting the $20 cert.

ok CAGs, here's a question. So I preordered MoH some good time ago, so it was eligible for the $20 cert points. But between then and approximately 2 weeks ago, my GCU membership expired. If I renewed it at the kiosk, then bought the preordered game, would I still get the $20? or would since it's a new subscription, not work for the promo? in which case, I'll just wait for it to get cheaper and return the preorder.

thanks!

As long as you are a GCU member at the time of purchase, you will be fine. To be safe, just have them on the same receipt.

Those games didn't come out until October 2nd, which means it very well could be until the first week of November before you see them.

Are they pending yet? They should be by now. Also, it seems like only silver members are getting their points early so you may have to wait out the 30 days if not.

I'm really getting fed up with Best Buy. I preodered MoH in-store. I called customer service to ask about the promotional credit tied to the game and price matching. They said if you order online and pricematch you don't lose your promotional credit since you already received it, but if you preordered in store you would have to talk to an employee in the store. When I went to pick up the game I asked the "gaming expert" if they PM Newegg do I still keep my promotional credit. He said you have to talk to customer service. The person at customer service said if you pricematch you lose your credit since it doesn't post to the account until 30 days. Talk about bs. Who can I speak to at Best Buy about this? The employees at Best Buy are so ignorant when it comes to GCU promotions. It's really frustrating. I got better service at the DMV right before going to Best Buy

I've preordered 5 games online during this promo for shipping and all 5 times I've gotten the preorder bonuses emailed with no problem and my points processed automatically within about 2 weeks. A lot better than going to the store and hoping they ring me out correctly.
