1up: "David Ellis and Tina Sanchez break down the latest footage for COD: Modern Warefare 2."
they really explained alot... the price stil scares me... i will rent and go from there...
How does the price scare you? It's $59.99 for the standard edition. The same price for every other new game that comes out. Don't want to pay extra? Then don't buy the "Hardened" or "Prestige" editions! http://www.gamestop.com/bro... I don't understand people. Sometimes I think they complain because they have nothing else to do.
he is referring to the increased price in europe IIRC or the increased price on pc
Dude, it's in plain text, in the video. And, it doesn't take a military genius to know that the plane is an AC-130... For the love of God... He knows the term "chaff", and just keeps on blurting out "c-130".... I want him dead. Yes, I have anger issues, but it's still extremely annoying.
This is my goty and its not even out yet. Im trading in Killzone 2 forsure.
Sell it now while you can get the most money back and put it down towards the preorder , or buy mw2 used on ebay so that crappy activision doesnt get a dime.
I'd never trade Killzone2 for this. As far as I can tell it's not hugely different from CoD4. It's got a few new nice features but not enough for me to want to trade something as unique as Killzone2 or even pay that crazy price. If Asda have that special discount for the first two days after release I might consider buying it. They had CoD5 on at £28 for the first two days. Edit: buying it used isn't such a bad idea but Modern Warfare 2s price isn't going to drop much even if it's a used copy. CoD4 is still retailing at £35. Edit2: Make that retailing at £30 on play.com
you would really trade in killzone 2 for cod? dang. i think i would trade killzone 2 in for killzone 3 when it releases, but never for a cod game.
How can it be your GOTY when you haven't even played it yet ? If it's basically an extension of COD4 and WaW then there is no way it can be even considered as a GOTY. Having the same tired and tested gameply and decent graphics dont make it a contender unless it pushes the boundaries, either in graphics, gameplay elements or features but up to now I have not seen anything to lift it beyond what COD4 did.

Great video very helpful but Activision thinks i/consumer am a sucker and will buy the game at a higher price then usual, well they have another thing coming.
I think you have another thing coming.
I'm probably not gona buy it either. I'm considering downloading it simply because of the crazy price.
lol you even have the judas priest stainless steel album cover for your avatar.
This is hilarious I paid $70 for SF3 back in the day. This is clearly going to be the best FPS coming to consoles this year. You guys love this type of game play any way. Also to get these type of visuals on consoles is not cheap programming wise or art wise. It really is funny that the console makers can raise the price of their console yet the people who actualy make the great games can not. Sure activision is a big evil corp right... what is funny is we all made them that way and most gamer don't reward creative games. What is funny is acti is trying to be EA. Why be mad at that? It takes so much money to make these game these days and it could be possible that activision just is not making the type of money that they need to keep producing games at this caliber. You see epic linked up with MS and GG games got SONY and even id had to merge with some one. We all knew this was coming. Yet the problem is activision is not able to produce a COD game sale impact with all of their games so the HD production then keeps things pretty stale.
" It really is funny that the console makers can raise the price of their console yet the people who actually make the great games can not." Here's the problem with that statement, MS and Sony raise those prices for their systems when it first comes out. Its not the same as what Activision is doing in the UK. The standard price has been in place for awhile now and then they decide to raise it ( has any good reason been stated yet? ). That's like sony or MS raising the price on their current systems. See how dumb that is? If you like paying more for your games, by all means, do it, those companies are looking more ignorant people to rape their wallets Also when was SF3 ever that high at stores? i didnt pay that much for it
@aaronisbla SF2 was $70 on the snes and gen... The consoles do not get improvements do they? This game is a major improvement over the last one? It is sort of like how the pspgo and dsi cost more. See how it makes sense now? Well any way development on the consoles is no joke and if you truly want improvements then you will have to pay for it and it is obvious they are about to get started on the next gen stuff. Every one is afraid of next gen development cost which is suppose to double. Hey I also paid around $200 for some neo geo games and I got a few other games that are worth more than their initial price. It really looks like you guys really don't respect this game and the hype is not really justified because if it was no one would complain about the price. Who knows you could be paying for PS3 development which would be subsidized or built in both copies maybe. Who knows but yes it is maybe too much. Usually if I want some thing the price is not a problem.
how much does it cost?
£55 in the UK apparently. I'm not sure what the price is for the PC version though. Normally I don't mind paying extra if it's worth it but extra for this game really isn't worth it for me.
im buying it but the max im paying is £40 i only want the normal copy dont like buying these special edition copies i dont think its worth it but great vid really broke it down
...Very helpful, alot of things i didnt pick up first time around - thanks guys!
But I am still not touching this game until the price comes down. And even if they do put up the price, that does not mean they deserve to have their game pirated, although, doesn't matter if the game was $10 cheaper, your always going to have the people that want something that other people have to pay for, for free.. Just makes them feel naughty. Either that or they are too fat to walk down to Electronic Boutique...
I will wait awhile on this one
I'll probably get it a few months after it comes out. Will be too busy juggling Uncharted 2, MAG, and university work xD.
Flashy trailer but thats just about it. They're making everything seem more action packed by having a bomb explosion every 5 seconds. Doubt there is really much changed
Now it looks like there will be too many ways to kill people. I mean...helicopter was annoying enough...imagine having to deal with someone being able to shoot you anywhere on the map. Wow.
Does not really matter what anyone says, the price etc.... you know a shed load of people are going to buy this no matter what. I suppose im only really interested in the multiplayer more than single player, I was the same with COD 4.
sure a load of people will still by this that can't be denied, but for the most part the reason people will be buying it is because they don't care anyway ( they like the shaft ) or they don't know. At least in most case when you highlight the price etc to the people who don't know, they quickly realise that it is a ripoff. the less sales activision get from it, the more of a statement we will be making.
Strictly for online MP Gamplay. Another shot to my wallet. This slow mo video exposed some pretty horrible textures and effects though.
Games weren't even that much when the consoles had just been released. It's a shame because Activision will get away with it too. Then what, Every developer retails their tripple-A game at £55?
I think they got one thing wrong "Unlock"... I don't think it's referring to the amount of killstreak loadouts you can have... IMO it's much more likely to mean you have to get a certain amount of killstreaks before you unlock the bonus E.G. Perform an 11 killstreak 10 times to unlock the AC130
Seriously now, getting on my nerves. This whole franchise has brought nothing to the gaming industry for years and even now you idiot jump on board like fu*king puppets. This game is like Modern Warfare, nothing has changed. This could have been downloadable content and you would have seen no difference.... I hate you idiots who jump in here to talk about this prestige edition and what guns you want to see, makes me fu*king laugh. Its all daylight robbery...... Enjoy sticking to your brainless FPS shooter and spending money on the rubbish included.....
I agree with much you are saying but I have a question what do you like playing? The problem is not really activision or this game. It is HD gaming period. The type of games it promotes are right in line with what activision is producing. Realism check FPS with realistic weapons check futuristic yet just like current day warefare check Not too much creativity so that no one is rubbed the wrong way check Online play that is preferred by many gamers just by looking at how many where playing it online compared to halo 3 and other games check So I have a question has the HD gamer gotten tired of HD graphics yet? Do gamers want more? Or is there just a lot of hate for this game because of it's price? Like I said if you really like a game then you will still pay the price for it. You don't have to play this game unless you are sheep and just need the hype. One thing is for sure lots of gamers are hating the hype of this gen especially when it all ends up being more hype than fun. Some thing tells me the gamers are going to turn on the game media or the producers are going to do that them selves.
