With the Black Ops 3 UK release date set for Friday November 5, we wanted to give you a final reminder that you cannot get the Nuketown map by buying Black Ops 3 from Tesco or ASDA.
We notice that many gamers appear to have forgotten that in the UK, the Nuketown map pre-order bonus is exclusive to GAME UK.
In other words, you can’t get Nuketown by pre-ordering from Amazon UK either – you have to buy the game from GAME UK otherwise you will miss out on Nuketown.
Many console owners are not very happy about this, especially given that there are no such restrictions in the US. You can pre-order Black Ops 3 from both Amazon and GameStop in the US and still get your Nuketown map pre-order code.
Has Activision sold their sold to the devil by effectively shutting out the competition knowing that gamers will be forced to cough up to get the map from GAME UK?
It’s worth pointing out that GAME are charging £49.99 for Black Ops 3 with Nuketown, a lot more expensive than the likes of Tesco who will be offering it for £42 without the map – prices compared here.
It’s also not the first time that GAME UK has resorted to these kind of tactics – they did the same thing with Mortal Kombat X in the UK by locking down the version that came with pre-order bonus character Goro, then charged more for it.
Let us know your thoughts on this. Did you not realise that Black Ops 3 orders from Tesco, Asda and any other place other than GAME will not come with Nuketown?
Are you angry about the situation?
