The Game store in Halifax, where people were queuing all night

Computer gamers in Halifax queued all night to get their hands on the new Call of Duty game when it was released at midnight.

The queue outside the store started at 9am - three hours before the game was available to the public - and the line didn’t die down until 3.30am.

At its longest, the queue stretched from the Game store in Southgate to beyond Russell Street.

This morning people were still queuing inside the store to buy the game, which has an 18 certificate.

One Dad in the queue said: “I’m not buying it for myself, I’m buying it for my son.

“He’s absolutely buzzing to get the game so I’ve come down this morning to get it for him, but I wasn’t going to come down at midnight,” he said.

On the queues which remained until the early hours, another parent in the queue said: “I love my kids but I wouldn’t have queued all night for the game.”
