    The Ghosts one is 9.99, just by going what it says on the description on xbox live. I do not know about the others though. Just picked up my BF4 for no other reason then 1 less thing to carry tonight. The disc case is the size of a bluray case but much thinner and the disc is on the opposite side and is green. Kinda flimsy as well, I feel like I can bend the case real easy.

    Ok well I may have exaggerated how much thinner. Just compared it to my MoS Bluray case and it is 1-2mm thinner, it is flimsy though, that is for sure.

    I really like that you can install the game with the disc and purchase it on live and not have to re-download the game. This weekend a workmate will bring his xbone over as he has no internet at the moment and I will set it up, use his Ghosts disc to install to my hard drive and then buy it on live for me. Saves downloading 30gb+ on a 11mbit connection.

    I assume we will only need to download the Launch update, the Factory OS would already be on the system wouldn't it?

    Don't know? You might be right. Just going from my ex brother in law who is a bit more frantically than I am about it all. Even if I wasn't working there is no way I would be going in at midnight to pick it up.

    Just got a text from my local, 9 pm open, and handing out consoles from 1201.

    Both of those down load links seem to be down for me, and it seems like my dumb shit house mates have gone over the download cap, net is slow as :mad:

    as already said... they won't be giving out the consoles till after midnight... microsoft won't even let them give out games (first party) until after 9pm... battlefield n stuff like that they can give out now but ryse, forza, etc has to be after 9pm.. if your store isn't open until 10 it just means they're taking a break unlike most other EB stores lol

    crimson dragon is $26.95

    most retail games are $89.70 (weird number)

    dead rising 3 "day 1 premium edition" is $128.70!! WTF!

    :D That's awful pricing.

    - Why are those games so large? There's no reason for them to be 30gb, unless it's just for marketing. There's no way Forza is actually 30gb.

    Nah, marketing. Back to the old '5 mega power' days of the mega drive. There's no reason for Forza 5 to be more than 10gb max.

    I mean, if Forza is 30gb, PC games would be nearing the 100gb mark.
