Currys Has Cheapest Call of Duty : Black Ops Game At £19.99

Electronics retailer Currys has announced that it will be selling Call of Duty : Black Ops for a whoppingly low £19.99 given that you spend at least £50 or more online or in-store (ed : if you find cheaper, let us know).

This is different from the Sainsburys deal which requires that the user buys £30 worth of groceries instore and (cannot be performed online) in order to get the game for £27.97

You could for example, grab the latest Sony PS3 320GB console with a Move Starter kit plus FIFA 11 (and CoD Black Ops) for £319.95 including delivery. Currys sells the game on Xbox 360 and PS3 for £39.99 and on PC for £34.99.

The launch event of Call of Duty : Black Ops yesterday, which was held at Battersea power station, was attended by celebrities such as Sophie Ellis Bexter (ed: didn't know she was into games), Manchester City footballer Wayne Bridge, and rap singer Tinie Tempa.

Treyarch studio head Mark Lamia said in a statement that the games developer "wanted to give Call of Duty fans the ultimate entertainment package this year. Black Ops delivers an epic and cinematic single player experience, an incredibly deep multiplayer offering, and endless hours of co-op fun with Zombies."

As one might expect, the game is already topping charts everywhere and it is a matter of how high it can go and how long it can last. Both console editions are currently chart toppers at Play.com for example.

The game has a lot to live to; its predecessor, Modern Warfare 2, still is the fastest selling game of all times with more than 1.2 million units sold in the first 24 hours.
