I'm on PSN, gonna wait a month or 2 before getting the game

I cancelled my preorder after I found out on the pc version they are getting rid of public servers and making you pay to play

The PS3 just dropped in price. Buy one, and then "lose" the receipt before your wife sees it so that you can't return it. Problem solved!

I'm definitely getting it, but probably not on day 1.

My internet at home is being flakey lately so it might be a little bit before I'm up on the multiplayer, but I'm on PSN as 'Airlok'.

BTW: I stil owe you that beer I offered and haven't forgotten. I've had some sort of wonderfully fun cold or something for a bit now.

I am on xbox live, I have it pre-ordered, and I will have it at midnight when it comes out. I think I am taking the day off work too.

I don't own a television, and the last gaming system I owned was NES.

Are they making this game for NES?

I heard there's going to be a level where you can play as that dog from Duck Hunt.

Prepaid, getting it at midnight.

I'm debating it. That package XBOX360 deal for $400 is tempting.

I don't know about the pay to play aspect but when I found out the multiplayer was going be strictly P2P, I decided I wasn't interested at all. FPS games do not work P2P, they need a central server. To many people with shit internet connections and shit computers to make it work. Vegas 2 is a fine example

I think I'm going to buy ARMA 2... looks pretty good. Another game I saw on Steam that looks fantastic is Shattered Horizon.. and it's only $20.

Well, I gots it preordered, hardened edition (never played the original CoD) at the Northgate Gamestop. I will likely be at the midnight release, but that depends on whether I've secured gainful employment. Things look really good on one particular job that I will hear about tomorrow, and I may actually request as part of my hiring offer that they guarantee me 11.10.09 off :)

I'm IMA_JRK on the PSN if anyone wants to add me. I play CoD 4 and CoD 5 mostly, and I loves killing me some nazi zombies!
Link Posted: 10/29/2009 11:36:41 AM EST
Will get it, but not a first day game for me...

Assassin's Creed II and Splinter Cell: Conviction are...
Link Posted: 10/29/2009 11:41:14 AM EST
I already pre-ordered it for XBOX 360. I was going to open a thread about this as well and see if we can get a group going to party up!
Link Posted: 10/29/2009 11:56:19 AM EST
Hmm, not sure yet. Playing Borderlands now and Dragon Age: Origins is already pre-ordered and drops on Thursday (next week).
Link Posted: 10/29/2009 12:05:27 PM EST
pre-ordered for xbox 360. gamertag is jimmypopps. add me if you want to play when it comes out

How is borderlands? I love loot grinding games, but had been reticent to get it since its story really doesn't connect with me that much.

Picking it up at Midnight. Preordered a while ago. Can't wait. What the hell is up with wives saying no gaming systems? All of my systems were cheeper than my wife by a LONG way.
Link Posted: 10/29/2009 3:34:12 PM EST
Preordered. Gamertag: MadDude666. Don't know when pick-up is. Lost my wallet with my giftcard in it.


Will find soon (hopefully!)

I never pre ordered it and I will not pay $60 for a computer game. The removal of multiplayer server support is stupid. I might pick it up when the prices go down.

I finally picked up COD4 when I made the jump to PSN last month. I'll definitely be getting the sequel next month.

I can't play video games for shit it feels unnatural ... like driving a car with only a thumb.

That is EXACTLY how I got my wife to get me the PS3 as a combined christmas/bday gift last year! When we went to go buy a new HDTV this year, she was skeptical, but when I compared the DVD Pirates of the Caribbean to the BluRay, she understood!

Heh, my wife thought the PS3 was silly, until she saw her first BluRay movie and she was instantly sold.

Yes. The tritium causes a capsule full of phospherus to glow. There are no electronics whatsoever.

I've always played the CoD series on my PC, but decided to make the jump to consoles when I saw that deal you're talking about. Pre-ordered it from Best Buy. Picking it up next week at the Portland store to avoid the tax.http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Microsoft+-+Xbox+360+Modern+Warfare+2+Limited+Edition+Co­nsole/9560557.p?skuId=9560557&id=1218124207981
I also like Combat Flight Sims, so I bought this bad boy:http://www.amazon.com/IL-2-Sturmovik-Birds-Prey-Xbox-360/dp/B001NY42JC/ref=cm_cr_pr_product_top

To avoid the tax? Does Portland not have sales tax?
Link Posted: 11/3/2009 5:45:11 AM EST
No sales tax in Oregon. Not really worth the drive for those of us shackled to Seattle, but I've been known to buy spendy items in Portland while driving through to save on the tax (cameras, etc).

No sales tax in Oregon. If I had to do it again, I might have pre-ordered it from Wal-mart. I believe they'll give you a $20 e-card on purchases that big. Don't quote me though.

BTW, here's a humorous spot from Wallyworld promoting the game. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SYPvwyZhTFk
