Get Black Ops for £7.99

Break cover and make a run for the sales desk.

The annual game of “watch the supermarkets kill the games industry” is upon us. Prices are going to be slashed (I’ve seen PES for £18 and Enslaved for £23 this week) by online retailers and supermarkets while specialist retailers offer incentives and bonuses.

So it’s fitting that, with the year’s biggest release (probably) just around the corner, things are hotting up. HMV are the first big retailer to break cover and announce their trade-in deal for Call of Duty: Black Ops. Trade in EA’s contemporary shooter, Medal of Honor, and you can be the proud owner of a game with a RRP of £55 for just £7.99.

With the supermarkets seemingly keen on the “with any other chart title” and the “when bought with 2100 MSP” techniques, this might be the cheapest possible price. We’ll wait and see.

    Hoping for a supermarket deal, even if it’s just down to £35 or £30.

      ha ha, thats true. Although they did sell 2mill copies in the uk, so they wont be too bothered, since they said quality control wasn’t all that good.

    Whichever supermarket offer COD;BO without the “with any other chart title” or “when bought with 2100 MSP” catches will make a killing

        I think I’m almost done with it now to be honest, so I think I’ll be partaking in this offer.

      yeah, I used that too. Won’t be able to play it straight away anyway, so thought might as well pre-order it, to save the fuss of going o supermarkets.

        I’ve not actually gone ahead with it. Still undecided on what platform I want it on.

        I’m actually tempted with PC this time (usually I go with PS3/360), especially as it is apparently getting mod support post-launch.

    I’ll be doing this. Great trade in I think considering MOH is a waste of money. At least I can get something worth while playing. Cheers HMV

    I’m tempted to do this. Do you just go in on the day and trade it in?

      Yeah retailers do this often. Gamestation and Game always seem to be doing it so i had a feeling that they or someone else may do it for this game.
