    Who have you ordered your copy through and what is the best deal that you have seen in UK?

    It makes sense to discuss all versions and who has the best price for your platform.

    I'll start the ball rolling for PC - I've seen WFC for about £30 from the big sites and around £25 from several smaller sites: Quick google search. Going with gamegears because I found a 6% discount code: Game6 :D

    I'm getting mine from EB Games and they offered a great deal for the PS3 if you preorder the game from them. Instead of spending $109 Australian like all usual new games, they said that I can get it for $79! How cool is that?

    Still waiting for someone to offer Shockwave so I can get it there.
    GAME and Gamestation dont seem to have any idea whats going on with this game, most of the people I've spoken to about it dont even know what it is.

    I've yet to find any cheap deals online. I don't bother with stores as I have no interest in paying over the odds for a game.

    I'm looking at maybe amazon.co.uk

    I haven't pre-ordered yet, I want to see if we get the pre-order incentives everyone else has been given. If there are no pre-order incentives (and no, Demolisher from Play.com doesn't count - did anyone even choose that pre-order character where there was a choice?) then I'll wait for the review.

    I might even wait a few months and pick it up for half the price, as this strikes me as the sort of title that will bomb at retail once all the fans have their pre-orders. If I get the urge to play it, I can always rent it.

    I'll wait until it comes down to a 'reasonable' price and then snag one off eBay.

    Either that or wait til I've got some Tesco Clubcard vouchers saved up and get one from there.

    I know, I'm thrifty.

    Amazon, but not until it's dropped in price to about £20.




    So, about a week after release then :p

    I would have done had it not been an online store.
    I prefer buying my games at retail, no idea why really.

    I wont be surprised to see this in the bargain bin within a few weeks.
    Out of 4 GAME and 2 Gamestation stores I checked, none even had it on the chart of upcoming releases. The one that went up to the end of July.

    I basically pre-ordered with Play as soon as i heard they were carrying a character I could switch to Jazz but honestly I kinda like Demolisher even if I play better as a scout

    30% staff discount at HMV pretty much seals the deal for me. Pre-order bonuses might of changed that, but seems that isn't happening.

    Thank you for that site. You saved me £10. I was going to buy it from play.com for £40 but it would still be cheaper to download play.com's exclusive character seperately than getting it free.
