I'm unsure whether I'll bother with the hardened after the shambles of the elite program. If I'd have paid full price on release for MW3 then I'd have been pretty annoyed. Although at the time Asda delivering it 3 days after release date was bad but giving
me half my money back has definitely eased the blow of only receiving a few maps throughout the year.
TBH with you, I'm more interested in Halo 4. I did enjoy BLOPS. TBH I enjoyed the online side of it more than any other COD (other than COD 4) so will be getting it for that, but I want to do another Halo campaign :)
