GameStop will be offering Modern Warfare 3 for just 99p - when customers trade in their copy of Battlefield 3 before November 18th.
Wow! I sure know I will past on this deal. Not that MW3 will be bad, but I will not trade in my battlefield just to get MW3. That doesn't mean other people won't. Either way the people that buy both will have the best of both worlds and pick which one they think is better. 5 more days. Edit: This promotion is good for those that are on the fence on which one to get or on the fence from the BF3 beta. I used the beta to the fullest and that is why I will be getting BF3.
Lol why would i wanna play reskinned MW1 when i could be playing BF3.
Reskinned Mw1 wrong actually, they've updated the game alot since Mw1 to Mw2, but from what I've seen you can call Mw3 reskinned Mw2
Actually Mw2 downgraded from Mw1
@decrypt well BF3 plays like BC2 in everway. After playing BF3, the graphics are shit on consoles and play exactly the same as BC2. I rather play MW3 skinned from MW2 than play BF3 skinned from BC2. BF3=BC1&2 MW3=MW1&2 Only COD multiplayer atleast is more fun than BF.
Why on Earth would anyone want to trade in their copy of Battlefield 3 and 99(p)itiful excuses for a copy of MW3?
lol come on guys, it wont be a re-skinned mw1 or 2 because zampella and west are gone, therefore you're better off playing mw1 and mw2.
But you haven't played battlefield 3 on consoles. Unless of course, you went to PAX.
Wow this a red flag for me, they are basically giving away MW3 something is up.
"Ditch Battlefield 3 for CoD:MW3 only for 99p" or "Ditch the next 99 CoD's for Battlefield 3, and save yourself time, money and heartache!"
Damn, looks like DICE has Infinity Ward grabbed by the nuts with all the hype going around BF3. LOL
Hell the only way your getting my BF3 copy is if they rip it from my cold dead hands... LoL -(because there is no way in hell I would trade that in) -But all jokes aside I guess this is a good news for people who use GameStop, I don't, I hate GameStop -but I think we can all understand needing some help to get all these titles coming out this fall...especially since the deal includes other titles like dead island and others.. .____........___...____ .____||......||.......____|| ||.........___||.......____||
Battlefield 3 For the win ^^ im proud to pre order BF3 on PS3
YESSSSSSSSSS! PS3 all the way!!!!!!! add me I'm "megacowdung" on psn
i aint tradin shit. id like to try mw3 campaigne, maybe before the end of next year before the same black ops 2 cod games is released. will anyone even be excited for that? what a joke
GAME have been doing deals like these for weeks with other games. It was 99p to get gears. I can't remember which games you had to trade in. These seems the new trend for retailers selling new games now. By X for pennies if you trade in a,b or c
Thats a pretty good deal if you think about it, you can rinse BF3 for 2-3 weeks and if the multiplayer isn't to your liking you can simply switch to CoD for 99p. I'll most likely stick with BF3 but for those who don;t like it thats a cracking deal.
The profit theymake on those 3 games you traded in is much higher when resold The hte loss they make by selling you the 1 title for 1buck Not true but example 60 new : they paid like 40 to the retailer mostly even less 3* 25-45 used : they geth like 70-120 for the used games you gave them 40 loss 100 winning ( roughly) Makes 60 bucks more money if YOU bought it for 1 dollar and traded in something else Thats why thissystematic used market by gamestop and co is damaging the industry The devs get nothing in those resold games My calculation is just a rough example
I'm getting tired of people saying developers don't get anything in the selling of used games. Before it was used someone had to buy it new. If I sell my three year old tv to get a new one should Sony make money on it? Maybe developers should worry about making a better game that I would never want to trade in.
Vinni thahts childish comeon 1person payed yes All people that buyed his copy or the copy from theoast one the dev wont get money Its not comparable since there is no globally acting companynthtat sells used tvs form example Used cars are still profitable for example you need replacement parts or service Etc The games industry is plagued by these methods AND thaths the only reason we have this dlc first user stuff or mappacks etc
@Ghoul There are a lot of variables with regards to second-hand games. I picked up Uncharted 2 pre-owned, I now have 3 pre-ordered. Funnily enough so do all my friends after playing my copy. Chances are none of us would have it pre-ordered if I had never bought. :) Putting people off from buying pre-owned can impact future sales. Oh the used cars analogy doesn't really work, most parts on a car that isn't new can more often than not be picked up for a lot less from a 3rd party supplier and any garage can pretty much service any car. :)
Haha I thought it was gonna say trade in BLACK OPS and get it for 99p and was gonna say that is a great deal.... But BF3..... hahahahaha
Trade it in. Use the code, then buy it back on e-bay used for 30.00
Thats some nice thinking. I wonder what these publishers with their clever little online codes think of that idea. And what about EB Games who have a 7 day return policy. Whats to stop you using the code and buying the game 2nd hand later?
i 2nd that. nice thinking bro will be trying that
Ironically, this doesn't affect MW3 gamers at all, since it does NOT have a nasty Online Pass. Online Pass is for BF3 users only....
What Ray said, with small modification. Buy the game. Use the code. Buy on e-bay used. Then trade it in. You don't want to wait without BF3. However, this may slightly raise second hand prices for a while, no?
99P...what a rip off. I'll give you a nickle for it.
I mean if your single player only type of guy (which would imply these arent exactly your type of game) you could get a pretty good deal out of this. Still, I'm sure a lot of people will make use of the offer.
Unfortunately, I don't know of any other similar military shooters that are better for single player gamers than than BF3 & MW3.
Wow, that's some pretty obvious sales trickery right there. Good way to boost sales numbers for Activision and ensure they have plenty of traded in copies of BF3 for a big "screw-you" to EA and DICE. That's definitely playing favourites right there.
I doubt they are. BF comes out first and they now they can make more money selling used copies. GAME did it with Fifa, Gears and most new titles lately. Its not favouritism, it is more trying to get a larger profit. That is why they are only doing it with big games
Having been to some of their conferences, it's very safe to say that Gamestop and Activision are real good pals, much better than they are with EA.
That's a pretty good deal.. but I'll be buying both MW3 & BF3 on their release days & I most certainly won't be trading 'em in any time soon. :P
hahahahaha, No Gamestop, I won't trade in my most anticipated FPS this year to a crap game. I'll get MW3, when it hits $20 below to play the story quick and than put it on the shelve.
MW2 isn't even $20 yet. That's two years after it's release. BF3 isn't the most anticipated FPS this year. BF3 PC is the most hyped FPS MW3 is the most anticipated FPS. There you got it son.
I said, it's MY most anticipated FPS of the year and I don't care if I have to wait 3 years to play MW3. I won't spend more money on a game that's exactly the same thing for years. I would be a fool to do so. It's the same thing with sports games. I only buy a new FIFA every 4-5 years because by than it actually feels like a sequel to the previous game. And don't call me son, I highly doubt you are my father.
You can't measure anticipation.
MW2 was developed by Infinity Ward. MW3 is developed by Infinity Ward, Raven Software & Sledgehammer. Please allow me to ask, son, how can you know it's the same this year? @Wicko: Pre-orders make a pretty good measure.
i thought infinity ward got broken up?
@Ares84HU well u will be a fool cause your buying BF3 that plays the same as BC2 only this time u will get to play with jets as apposed to MW3 new perks and killstreak rewards.
Killstreaks and "rewards" in CoD is one of the things I hate in an online shooter. Just makes the whole experience more arcade and I really don't like that. Besides, the MP will be hacked to oblivion on day one IF it even will work properly on day one unlike every other COD ever released. Oh and, BF3 isn't like BFBC2. It is different. Things have been improved upon and the controls are a bit different as well. I understand why people don't get Battlefield games, you see it requires thinking and strategic play as opposed to CoD which is just run and gun mindlessly.
Nah lol i played the sh** out of BC2 and in the beta for bf3 i maxed out the recon and got pretty damn far in assault. It feels almost exactly the same to me just with better graphics really. Im not saying that CoD is going to be revolutionary compared to the last game or anything but i at least like the intensity and the story(not much of a story in either game) alot better in the MW campaigns. Plus Cod mp is much more competitive in my mind.
Good luck cod4 is still $20 used at GameStop and that's from 07
You guys don't get it. This isn't to get people to trade their game in, its to get people to Buy battlefield 3 who were on the fence as wether or not to get it. Gamestop probably know that BF3 will be a decent game, so when MW3 comes along people wont trade in BF3 for it, but will still buy MW3. Hey presto, someone who was just going to buy MW3, has now bought a copy of BF3 as well.
u think outside the n4g bubble... bubbles 4 u lol
Nah passing on that lol :D Yo lets get a game at 99p by trading in a game that cost me £40 then paying £40 a year for elite make sense :/.
Gamestop is in america. Why do they have pence?
I have no idea what a pence is.
lmao. It's what that p means. British people use it.
this is a GameStop UK only deal.
Thats new to me, I never knew Gamestop existed in the UK. 0.0 I googled it and found the website www.gamestop.co.uk
Gamestop.. that's just a new low for the, honestly.
I thought the resolutions up to 99p??? My bad.. :/
Are you making fun of MW3's resolution? If so, pretty funny joke..
Awesome. There will no doubt be a lot of people who will regret buying BF3.
Lol i thought the headline said MW3 had 99 problems at Gamestop xP Anyways, hell nah ill never trade in my copy of BF3 for that outdated piece of crap mw3. Have fun playing the same game 5 years in a row Bitches, ill be stepping my game up with BF3!
Whether or not you love BF3 or MW3- SOME people WILL be trading in these games. So these deals make sense for THOSE people. Not for everyone here thinking they represent the majority. BB is running a 50% trade in bonus towards MW3 or BF3- I'm not paying a dime for BF3 on release day...so I'm sure there is someone who wants to find a good deal for MW3 out there somewhere.
The console shooter to get is MW3. The PC shooter to get is BF3. BF is so heavily gimped on consoles that arguing about it is completely pointless.
you talk as if Dice gave consoles a crappy port, all 3 versions were designed to push their respective platforms tech. the result being a multiplat game that has the quality of a 1st party game. You cant blame dice cuz their limited by a platforms tech.
You haven't looked at the console post beta videos have you? http://www.youtube.com/watc... That doesn't looked gimped to me....
Gimped how with your pc graphics? Who cares last time I checked you play games and don't stare at them all day fancy graphics is cool but gameplay matters the most. Love how pc gamers love to rip on cod for being horrible at gameplay but only boast about their slick bf3 graphics
Still far too much for an re-skinned MW2.
This just shows GameStop being MW3 fanboys, and don't you mean 99 CENTS? How can it be PEE? GameStop is American...
If I actually bought BF3, I would trade it in for MW3 or simply another game... BF3 is over-rated, really isn't that good on both console and PC. Even I was over hyping this game way too much.
youre right about the over hype thing though, its not good to do that. im goin into bf3 feeling its going to be a solid military shooter. best one ever made from the looks of it. ill be satisfied and maybe suprised. id only be disapointed if i over hyped it.
This is a strange promotion. All this would do is encourage MW3 players to try battlefield and if they don't like it, trade it in. BF3 would still get their money, makes no sense to me.
maybe they think it will help sales of elite and dlc. dlc is a billion dollar buisness now. money strait in their pocket. kinda funny though, i see it as just for a couple of fuckers they pay hardly any money (compared to what they pull in} to make maps. not to mention ms or sony paying them for timed exclusive dlc. sqeeze for every dime i suppose
"All this would do is encourage MW3 players to try battlefield" Yes, exactly! And that is their game plan. They think that if you try Battlefield there is a good chance that you keep it. And suddenly they have sold both Battlefield and MW3 to gamers who else would have only bought MW3... And those returned Battlefields might be sold again - they think there will be enough demand for this as well. They might loose if gamers stick with Battlefield and not buying MW3, but only if that becomes a global trend. And they ends up with huge numbers of unsold MW3s Promotional campaign sponsored by EA?
