CODE WORD: SCISSORS
As some people may be aware, Amazon.co.uk has started putting up Black Ops 2 for pre-orders already. The order has only been there a few days but it has already received three times the amount that Black Ops 1 back in 2010 got in the first 24 hours!
Graham Chambers (Video games manager at Amazon.co.uk Ltd) had this to say over the pre-order rush:
“Set to be one of the biggest games of the year, it’s great to see so much enthusiasm and anticipation for ‘Call of Duty: Black Ops II. Bolder and better than before and with everything from a futuristic storyline through to single player mode, Zombies and multiplayer, Black Ops II promises something Call of Duty fans have never seen before.’’
I have to say, I’m not surprised at how these pre-orders have jumped up as it seems to happen every year. But I am wondering what sort of reception the game will get when it’s released as I’ve already seen people complaining about the game over on the Xbox.com forums. I know it’s early days at the moment but once we see more gameplay for Black Ops 2 I will be expect that number of pre-orders to rise or even drop.
Call of Duty Black Ops 2 is scheduled for release on 13th November with the price being £42.97 at Amazon.co.uk. Expensive I know, but remember Amazon.co.uk Pre-order guarantee, if they lower the price when you have it on pre-order you will pay that. Even if the price goes higher (lets hope not!) you will still pay the lowest price.
