Being a good Samaritan rarely pays off, unfortunately.

I know if i found an envelope full of cash i'd keep that shit instead of turning it into the police and not getting a damn thing.
RickHiggity  +   961d ago
But if you robbed someone, the police wouldn't punish the guy who called them.

Man what in the world..I was going to post BO 2 Gameplay but now I'm not sure...I thought we could post gameplay videos?

What is this. please can a good Samaritan explain?
AzaziL  +   961d ago
Whoever at activision that punished this guy, they're the kind of people that if you helped them out of a car wreck, they'll sue you for hurting their back....

Remind me of The Incredible where Mr. Incredible saved the guy who was falling from this building to be sued afterwards.

Doing good things just to be recognized for doing good things defeats the purpose.

With that being said Activision sucks.
Conzul  +   962d ago
This is why I don't buy into CoD. Screw Activision!
Tetsujin  +   961d ago
I refuse to buy any Activision game in general, new or used (I know they get $0 from used sales but still it's the principle).
MurDocINC  +   961d ago
Might as well stop buying EA too, they try to cover up MOH crap too.
Summons75  +   962d ago
ahhhh Activision covering up the horrid things about their game lol Goes to show how bad Call of Duty and Activision is in general.
KwietStorm  +   962d ago
Can't be serious
BioDio  +   962d ago
hmmm wtf where they thinking when they banned the video? That he would just shut up?! >_> Some people just think the gamers have no voice... or that we are a bunch of retarded ppl...

Anyway... the game got hacked in less than 24h, ppl buying black ops 2 PC get Mass Effect trylogy for free...
seriously... wtf is going on? no wonder the world will end in december...
Getowned  +   961d ago
I REALLY REALLY can't wait until 2013 so people can shut up about this "end of the world 2012" Hoax. Its Damn Y2k all over again. Seriously soooooo annoying. Other than that I agree with you, I don't understand why Acti didn't just ban the hacker and show people cod hacks wont be tolerated ,but they attack this guy ? ... FacePalm Acti FacePalm!


Acti is just a big bully who thinks because they sell a lot of copys of cod they can trample anyone ... sigh...
I really wish Medal of Honor: Warfighter was a better game :( ..

game sucks. But graphics wise wow!!

could have been a nice cod alternative.

It's not that bad really, i haven't played SP(i'm guessing most issues come from that cause haven't experienced any in MP) but MP is pretty good.
ZitterZap  +   962d ago
Well If people know there are Aimbotters here Day 1 then that will influence their decision to buy the game.

Day 1/Week 1 sales for a COD title are extremely high. If his video went viral it can cause a lot of monetary damage to Activision.

For them this is just a business decision. This video could have cost them quite a lot of money in lost sales. So they dealt with it, but not in the most pretty way possible.

Anyone who thinks that big companies like Activision and EA care about the community is delusional. It just about making profits and reaching their financial goals.
PurpHerbison  +   961d ago
Nah, I highly doubt the video would have done anything at all. If the majority saying that COD is ass since MW2, arguably WaW, hasn't even dented the sales, why would this?
Getowned  +   961d ago
1st rule of Acti
-hack COD but don't talk about Hacking COD/ Hackers
Perjoss  +   962d ago
Activisions overall attitude makes me not want to pay for their games... Instead of cracking down on this guy and his video why not spend that time and resource to correct the problem at the source and fix the aimbot problem.

These bigger companies have so many chances to redeem tehmselves in gamers eyes but for some reason they always choose the douche route and piss people off even more.
Majin-vegeta  +   962d ago
I have no idea why he picked this copy&paste crappy game up.He should have just stuck with BF3.
SJPFTL  +   962d ago
XBOX has Halo, PS3 has Uncharted and both have Battlefield 3. Why the hell on earth would you give Activision any money to only to screw you over when there are a bunch of better games on either console, made by other developers who treat their communities well

Activision is laughing themselves all the way to the bank, and the same Sheep are buying the same POS every year. I ditched COD when Activision dismantled the original creators Infinity Ward. All true COD fans should have left the series then, it has been downhill ever since.

and pc has a ton of stuff in different genres. Yet call of duty still tops the charts on steam...

BL2, Torchlight 2, The witcher 2, ARMA 2 CO, Darksiders 2, Shogun 2, Skyrim, Alan Wake and many more awesome games have been in top of steam's chart for several weeks on release.
So just like any other game it's there because it got released yesterday, it will be taken down by hitman or AC 3, or darksiders 2 which got a 33 dollar discount.
InTheLab  +   961d ago
Except MW2 was made by the very same team you praise and it was awful. A broken awful mess.
SJPFTL  +   961d ago
It was broken because of all the drama that happened with Activision and they basically got dismantled before as well as distracted them from their post-launch support and patching

COD1, COD2 and COD4 were timeless masterpieces. MW2 was not that bad, if it was not for the one man army glitch ... MW2 > all COD since then
Bonerboy  +   961d ago
WOW...this is very "Hammerpoint" of Activision to do this.
KimoNoir  +   961d ago
Oh and the mass effect disc 2 with a black ops label... Activision should be taken into class action lawsuit
Bladesfist  +   961d ago
That would be the disc manufacturers fault. Good luck with your lawsuit.
SilentNegotiator  +   961d ago
Activision is liable to customers. The Disc factory is liable to Activision.
goukijones  +   961d ago
Full on COD Jimmy.
TBONEJF  +   961d ago
RickHiggity  +   961d ago
So I guess the new strategy is to just pretend BO2 is some flawless prodigy, and hide any evidence that indicates otherwise.
AIndoria  +   961d ago
Yeah I know, I saw his video last night. Pretty fucked up stuff. Remove video? Well fine. STRIKE? WTF?
Omnislash  +   961d ago
And yet they still keep buying their games... smfh
mochachino  +   961d ago
So now you can't post video of your own gameplay? This is total BS, how you play determines the unique content of the video. All Activision did was provide the canvas and the paint, the players determines what actually happens video.
Unlimax  +   961d ago
I told you guys before .. Never trust Company's that treat their fans in this way and eat their money at the same time without any feedback's especially activi$ion the one that comes with unthinkable policy's !

Hacked already?! Cheating b@st@rds like this are the reason I stopped buying COD after Modern Warfare 2.
hazelamy  +   961d ago
they haven't issued takedowns to the dozens of other youtubers who have cod vids up, why his video then?

because it shows the game has already been hacked.

and the irony is this will end up doing more to publicise the fact then the original video would have alone.
