The following week.

Probably not a big deal though.

I must have signed up for the rewards program for the free MS points it gives out. I've been getting 200 MS points every time my next year of XBL starts. SO that was basically $5 off the $35 it cost. No idea what they do now though, since they no longer deal in MS points.

Man I guess it's a no go for me with Gamestop. Their $50 trade in credit can only be used toward the XBOne version of Ghosts. Not for store credit. So I'll either need to wait two weeks after the Ghost launch to get the code from the rewards program, or just get it from BestBuy and eat the $10........................
....... Of course I'll be eating the $10 since I want to have access to the FreeFall map at the very beginning:D. I just need to pre-order form the actual BestBuy store for in store pickup. Since I can only have it shipped when pre-ordering online.

I'm a power member w/ GS, and the guy at the store had no idea how to do the digital/$10 Xbox One upgrade. Then again, he probably wanted mr to buy their disc version lol.

okay, trying to catch up on the threads for the past couple of days missed...

so it's confirmed that if you buy it digitally for $70, you get to keep both copies of CoD. the 360 version is not deactivated.

any confirmation on the free fall map with the digital version? sorry if I missed the appropriate post.

and one more question... will this dual license digital be available after November 5 and with the free fall map?

Yes & Yes.

any confirmation on the free fall map with the digital version?

Also, if you were concerned about missing out on content, don’t worry. The bonus Free Fall map will be available to digital customers as well. PS3 gamers will find it bundled with their digital preorder, and Xbox 360 gamers who are enrolled in the Xbox Live Rewards program and buy the digital edition of Call of Duty: Ghosts before November 18, 2013 will receive a Free Fall download token via email after that date (tokens will likely start going out the following week). Also, please note that that offer is good for Xbox gamers in the US, Canada, Mexico, Germany, Australia, New Zealand, Singapore and Hong Kong. If you’re not a member of the Xbox Live Rewards program, you can sign up here – it’s free. (UPDATE: And while it’s a little ways off, yes, Xbox One digital customers will also be able to get Free Fall — stay tuned for details on that.)

will this dual license digital be available after November 5 and with the free fall map?

The Xbox 360 + Xbox One Digital Combo, referenced here (and which used to be called the Xbox Game Ahead edition), will be available at participating retailers, and I am simply waiting for it to appear. Check with your local retailer to see if they plan on carrying it and, if so, when they expect to start selling it. However, if you can’t find it, you can still get the Xbox 360 digital edition on November 5 throught he Xbox Live Marketplace, then add the Xbox One edition of Ghosts for $10 on November 22. It’s the same offer, just in two steps instead of one.

UPDATE 10/30: Amazon UK is now stocking it. Please report in where else you find it.
UPDATE 11/1: Walmart has it in the US.
UPDATE 11/1: I have confirmed that if you preorder the Digital Combo, you will get Free Fall.

No need to preorder.

The "bonus" map is expected to be a piece of paper with a code for the extra map that will be in every copy of Ghosts at launch. As long as you buy a copy from the first week's shipment, that paper remedemption should be in the box.

Same thing happened last year with BLOPS2 and Nuketown2025. Even a month later people were buying retail copies of the game with the Nuketown bonus map voucher included.

Activision should be paying me.

Its amazing they dont have one single site/FAQ answering these questions. Its only the BIGGEST game of the year.

Edit: wait a minute. It said the codes would not go out until the week after the 18th.

Yeah I caught that too.

I'm hoping the codes release earlier than that. No reason to hold them if people have purchased and activated the digital version of the game.

5 posts in a row. Somebody is getting restless for Ghosts! biggrin.gif

The weekend prior to release is always the longest! (at least for those of us that don't get advanced copies)

Hunting for the early copy actually makes it feel longer lol. Cause I feel like I could/should be playing it right now but I'm not. 

 

Craigslist has been surprisingly dry this year, I'm hoping stuff pops up once game stores open in an hour or two.

post #494 of 1758
I wouldn't even know where to look for an early copy, in terms of actual stores. Every single ad on my local Craigslist is for people looking for an early copy. Not a single one for sale.

I saw the list of game modes but the list I saw looked like the Core gametypes. Has anyone seen what the Hardcore modes are for Ghosts?


NM, I found it.

http://www.charlieintel.com/2013/11/01/call-of-duty-ghosts-playlists-revealed-3-hardcore-modes-no-ground-war/

We’ve just been sent images of the Call of Duty: Ghosts playlists that will be available at launch. As we reported earlier today, the Ghosts MP servers went live, and with that the playlists have been revealed.

To start, there is no ground war. This doesn’t mean it won’t happen on next-gen, but for current gen, it’s absent. It should also be noted that there is no Search and Destroy.

You have 3 main options to chose from, Standard, Hardcore, and Clan vs. Clan. We already know what the standard modes are.

For the hardcore players, there’s only 3 modes:

Hardcore TDM
Kill Conformed
Search & Rescue

For Clan Vs Clan, there’s 2 modes:

Clan Team Deathmatch
Clan Objectives

The Standard modes are:

Team Deathmatch
Cranked
Blitz
Search and Rescue
Infected
Kill Confirmed
Domination
Hunted
Free-for-all
Team Tactical

As IW has said, the playlists can always be changed, and there can be more added.

Yeah, I think they're sending them out later and later each year.  It's gotten progressively more difficult...got MW2/blops on thursday, mw3 friday, blops 2 saturday....

 

What pisses me off is that pirates get to play, and people willing to pay don't.

post #496 of 1758
I remember the days when Call of Duty wasn't a smash hit. CoD4 released to little fanfare, no store within 100 miles got a copy for over a week. I ordered mine online the day after release and still got it earlier than any store in my area.

I also remember Halo fans attacking me for saying it was going to be the best shooter of the year. Oh how things have changed.

For a major gaming company, they seem to be pretty technically inept. How long did it take them to get Elite running?

So does the day one digital download to the 360 allow you the $10 upgrade for the One(would like to do it for BF4 too)?

I didn't realize how long it's been since I did a preorder in an actual BestBuy store. The last time I did it you had to go to customer service and place the order. They looked at me like I was crazy when asking to do a preorder. I guess now the preorders are on a card in the game section, that you take to the register. Normally I've either pre-ordered at Gamestop in person or ordered online for Pickup at Bestbuy But i guess since it's near the launch I couldn't order online at BestBuy.com for in store pickup.

Anyway I have my order in just so I can make sure I get the Freefall map. Then later I'll trade it in to BestBuy and get the digital versions for both consoles for only $70 total. I'llbe out $10, but it should be worth it to make sure I can access the FreeFall map at launch on Tuesday.

I just hope this is the very last time I have to deal with a disc. I hope they don't do this crap next year with digital versions and making people wait to get some of the extra content.

Seeing a LOT of impression videos up on YouTube. Looks like getting CoD early is becoming easier and easier. Here's thunder:

Lol, I'm on the cusp of getting it. I swear to god I'm living out a scene from a sitcom right now, such a hilarious situation.

Of course it is. If anyone ever thought they would get rid of it you are truly living in a dream world.

They might make it more difficult (ala BLOPS 1) but it will always be there.

His overall impressions seem pretty good though other than the QS and the issue with Dead Silence being cancelled out by Amplify.

Some first impressions would be greatly appreciated. That's assuming you can put the controller down for a few minutes to write something! smile.gif

This. Give us some thoughts on map design, recoil, time to kill, perks, and anything else you think is worth mentioning. biggrin.gif

First impressions are very good, everything seems extremely well thought out, lots of nice little touches, like a meter showing you how long you're cooking your grenade, or a range finder on your holo sight.

Something bound to be very controversial, but I'm 100% in agreement with - you no longer see your connection status, you've got no idea if you're 4 bar or 2 bar.
