Far out, maybe a more appropriate title for the game would be Merchendise Warfare?

It's definitely true, it should be :)


So much stuff coming out with it!

Prestidge edition is at the extreme end with the night vision.

I just wanted a bluetooth headset and the standard madcatz one was $5 less.  Thought stuff it, at least if I'm going to look like a dick in a headset, it can be camo :P

What baffles me is the huge variety of prices for the standard edition.
I preordered the xbox 360 version from playtech.co.nz for $130 and I thought it was a good deal considering EBgames and Dick Smith have it for $150.

Now I see from this thread firstgames are selling it for $99!

Remember the days when all games at every store were $99? Now we have to bargain hunt.

rossmnz: Hmmmm.

www.firstgames.co.nz are a kiwi company though arent they?

Id rather give my patronage to a kiwi company instead of a random one outta HK!


yeah firstgames are, they buy their games from HK and Japan directly, then sell out of their outfit.


Only problem with firstgames is no Credit card.  I always use my credit card for online purchases, ever since C1com went bust.  having the extra insurance on it if a company fails is good enough reason in my books to use it


You can use PAYPAL, which is exactly what I did.

No way I was gonna shell out 150 for a game...  that's just robbery.  And then there's the case of the watered down PC version, that's another story altogether!

Yeah, and by then most online players would of moved to the next new release. Just buy it if you want it now, suck up the cost and get online for a lot of fun.

same here and so are my two brothers.

It's so annoying, it's like christmas as a child, except you have to wait for it, instead of sneaking it out of your parents wardrobe when they are asleep




Apparently you get the nuke at a 25 point kill spree and you use it and it kills everything, you with it and ends the game.  Looks awesome


The airport scene video is awesome too, surprised Australian censors didn't cut that out over in Oz
