Me personally, always thought the 12AM launch trip to gamestop was the fastest way to get games (only bought 3 games in my life), however it appears some people have online pre-ordering sources that deliver days early. Can anyone share a website that you got a game from early in the United States?

That will work when the game gets leaked, but only for my jtag. I don't know anything about flashed xbox's, but unless I can unban them, i don't want one.


Anyone know one for US?


For Uk, I've heard about this one, but I would imagine I won't get the game early because its for the UK: http://www.tescoentertainment.com/store/browse/home/

The only good thing that is going to be in reach is going to be the campaign anyways lol.

The beta was HORRIBLE, in my opinion, and H3 is my favorite game....

Indie shops, basically shops that are run by your regular Joes, you usually find them tucked up down side streets, not like your usual chain stores that you find on the highstreet.

Indie shops get the game at least 2 days early and usually let you buy the game off them as soon as they get the game in stock, but this usually means you pay a little bit extra for the game than you would in say Wallmart.

The fact halo 3 was your favorite game, is the reason you like MW2 and hated the beta.

The only stores that would sell early are privately owned stores. So, not Gamestop, Walmart, Kmart, Target, etc. Of course you will be paying extra for it though, since it's privately owned. :frown: I am just going to go to the midnight release. :biggrin:

except i love halo 3;

now i enjoyed MW2 at release, and got tired of it;

Reach Beta: LOVED IT, played from START date to END;

since then, i sold MW2. and am playing Halo 3, waiting for reach.

pretty sure amazon is ur best bet...

All i hear is that theirs two main possibilities with big game titles

1. You get it REALLY early...like days..up to a week or two early

2. You get it like a day or day late due to mixups/back orders
