UK Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 price roundup

Online, supermarkets, shops, trade-ins, eBay.

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 launches tomorrow - Tuesday, 8th November 2011.

Where's cheapest?

BestBuy confirmed to Eurogamer an incredible base price of £29.99 for Modern Warfare 3 on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360. This price, however, is only available tomorrow.

HMV will sell you Modern Warfare 3 for £9.99 if you trade Uncharted 3, Batman: Arkham City, GoldenEye 007: Reloaded or Battlefield 3. Game will half the price of Modern Warfare 3 (to presumably £22.49) when you trade one of 10 games.

Tesco, Sainsbury's and Morrisons all offer money off when buying Xbox Live points cards or spending a certain amount in store. You could use the points cards to subscribe to Call of Duty: Elite. Tesco warned of high demand when Eurogamer phoned the supermarket today. Stock levels are unavailable there.

Online, Sainsbury's Entertainment has the best price of £35.99 (PS3, 360), £30.39 (Wii), £27.99 (PC) and £19.99 (DS) thanks to a 20 per cent off voucher - CODJSGA311002.

BestBuy's online price of £34.99 (PS3/360) has meant stock has sold out. It's hard to believe that Carphone Warehouse will close BestBuy at the end of this year.

Modern Warfare 3 eBay prices start at £30.

The Hardened Edition of Modern Warfare 3 has sold out nearly everywhere. Tesco once offered this for £70. Today, you can find the Hardened Edition of Modern Warfare 3 at Simply Games for 89.95 on PS3 (sold out on Xbox 360), or for £119.99 on

Those who bought Battlefield 3 at GameStop can still pre-order Modern Warfare 3 to enable to the 'Modern Warfare 3 for 99p' deal.

Note that Activision raised the base RRP of a Call of Duty game by £5 back with Modern Warfare 2. A PS3 or Xbox 360 version of Modern Warfare 3 carries an RRP of £54.99, compared to most other game's RRP of £49.99.

Modern Warfare 3 prices of £44.99 or higher on PS3 and Xbox 360, or £39.99 or higher on PC, are excluded from our roundup.

Game and HMV are doing nation-wide midnight openings tonight to sell Modern Warfare 3.
