ORIGINAL STORY: Online retailer SimplyGames.com has stated that it plans to break the street date of Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 by telling customers that it can offer "guaranteed Monday delivery" of Treyarch's upcoming shooter.

"The vast majority of customers" may even receive their copy tomorrow, the retailer says.

Black Ops 2, which doesn't officially go on sale until next Tuesday, November 13, is in stock now on the retailer's website and shipping today.

The retailer posted on its Facebook page that any orders "placed before 4.30pm today will be dispatched today for likely delivery via royal mail tomorrow or Monday.

"Express orders will be guaranteed Monday delivery. Thankyou SimplyGames Team."

It's unusual for a retailer to openly advertise that it intends to break a game's street date. Retailers can often be penalised for selling titles early.

Early copies of Black Ops 2 are already being sold via eBay, with bids upwards of $300. One copy of the game allegedly went for more than $8,000.
