Shops drop cost of CoD: Black Ops

Duty lowered in arms race

The Power of One Infographic

With gamers eager for next week's release of Call of Duty: Black Ops, the stores have begun to announce eye-catching deals.

HMV appear to have the cheapest offer. Trade in EA's Medal of Honour and get the game for just £8. With Black Ops' official launch price £55, that's a whopping £47 discount.

The deal will only run from 9-15 November.

Call of Duty: Black Ops

A lot of buck for your bang?

Reports suggest Game will offer the title for £25 if bought with any other in-store chart game on Xbox 360 or PS3. Customers can also get it for the same price if they trade in Halo: Reach, Dead Rising 2, F1 2010 or Fifa 11.

Game will open hundreds of stores at midnight on Monday to begin sales.

Meanwhile, rumours are rife that Sainsbury's and Morrisons will sell the title for a flat-fee of £25 at launch.

Wherever you get it though, shop around and save a bomb because you certainly don't need to pay the full official launch price. Call of Duty: Black Ops is released on 9 November. ®
