    Get Modern Warfare 3 for Less Than $2 via Gamestop UK

    Looks like the gloves are off in the battle for the crown in the world of First Person Shooters. It seems that GameStops in the UK are offering copies of Modern Warfare 3 for only 99pence ($1.56 to be exact), as long as you trade in Battlefield 3 before November 18th. With deals like this going on, it makes you wonder just how confident Activision REALLY is about Modern Warfare 3 maintaining their place as king of the hill.
    Just wow. Really I wish I could live on UK, this has to be one of the best offers for First Person Shooter gamers. My thoughs, just WOW

    I thought MW3 was going to be quiet about this, not bash BF3, do anything to say they were better or anything, and then they pull this little stunt. It's not very big, or a huge thing, but it's implied what they were doing.

    Pretty sure there isn't a Gamestop in the north east places I go to. (Newcastle, Gateshead and Middlesbrough) Didn't even know GameStop was in the UK. =/

    I think they are just trying to reach out to us in the UK via online. From what i've heard, they can f*ck right off though, we already have our own main game retailer that rips us off all our trade-ins and junk, f*ck that.

    gamestop has fuc*ed up deals, you dont pay anything less if you buy BF3 just to sell it again for MW3. But it could be good for those who want MW3 instead..........

    Wow, they actually decided to fight fire with fire! Still looks like a good deal, though, specially for those who just want both s.

    Kind of a d-bag move by Infinity Ward. They're not getting much money out of this, so it's obvious this is just to take a stab at DICE and BF3.

    All in all, good deal for FPS fans, but I can't say I like what IW is doing here...

    couldnt this actually be good for battlefield 3,and come back to bite activision in the ass.if you were leaning towards buying mw3 and skipping bf3 this deal would give you reason to purchase bf3,you may realize you like the game and keep it,and even if you trade the game in ea still gets the money from the original purchase.

    This is all GameStop's doing, not Infinity Ward or Activision.

    It will be online, I seriously doubt Gamestop are that arrogant or (and this is a first from me) ******ED as to set up retailers in the UK.

    Seriously a dick move to even set up a service for UK residents, f*ck that.

    Most likely both. I can't say anything against the game until playing it myself. Up until I do, I just know I won't put any money towards buying the game.

    Wow, how smart is this? Your company loses money from basically giving the game away after somebody already spent $60 on the competition. This is how you win in business! I wish beer companies would start giving you a case for a couple bucks if you cashed in your empty cans from a competitor.

    Utterly speechless. How does that even begin to make sense to A Hurt Dice sale's or B give Infinity Ward a profit?
