Time doesn’t last forever (unless you get more of it, anyway). And in less than 10 hours, gamers on the east coast will be able to get their hands on Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, one of this year’s most anticipated games.
For anyone who still wants to take advantage of some of the preorder bonuses available for the game, Amazon.com is offering $25 off on a 12-month Xbox Live Gold Membership, $3 off the retail price of the game, $0.99 release date delivery, $10 off on a Turtle Beach Call of Duty: MW3 headset, and an exclusive Modern Warfare 3 wallpaper – all included with a preorder placed on the Xbox 360 version of game before midnight EST tonight. PS3 or PC users will get everything but the Xbox Live credit.
It’s a great bargain for anyone who was considering buying an Xbox Live subscription or the headset anyway, and those who just wanted Xbox Live but not Call of Duty can profit as well. Consider that a 12-month Gold subscription is worth $50. You could preorder Call of Duty for $57.98 after the $3 discount and $0.99 shipping. You could turn around and sell it on Ebay the next day for at least $50 That pans out as just an $8 loss with a 12-month Gold membership only costing $25 more, or $33.
Complicated, I know, so I’ll let you sort out any other potential bargains on your own based upon your purchase plans. In the meantime, let us know what you think about preorder bonuses for games and your plans for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 in the comments below or our new fourms!
