James Joell-Ireland and Sam Bage from wedotech.net discuss in a three minute short how Activision's price hike pawned boycotters and gave them free press. Most pre-ordered game in history? You bet!
F... U... enough said
I signed the boycott sheet, but I'm feelin the pressure from friends. I pre-ordered Bad Company 2 yesterday, so if I don't get MW2, the beta should keep me busy.
Oh I agree, it will kill me to see all of my friends playing MW2 while I wait patiently for a used copy to surface. But I plan to stand my ground and spit in the face of Acti and IW, they will not be getting my money this time.
Im not getting it, looks like a cod 4 mod.
..we are two. I see no need for Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare 1.5 (the marketing edition).
For someone who is not purchasing this game, you sure spend a lot of time commenting in EVERY MW2 article. Why even waste your time if you're not interested in it?
I might pick it up at a later time from the bargain bin. I'm interested. It's one of this years biggest releases. But I will openly admit that companies like Activision, Infinity Ward, Turn 10, Valve and other companies with similar tendencies to hype their own products and badmouth others make my stomach turn. Look at Naughty Dog and Insomniac Games in contrast. They are great examples of companies who still give a damn about their games and not just the money.
I will be standing my ground. I won't be buying it at all. But then it's easier for me because i'm a big Rainbow Six/Dragon Rising fan, so prefer more realistic shooter affairs. But there will be those that talked the talk, but will buckle and buy it anyway.
when it hits the $40-$30 range. Way to many other games I need to buy and what looks like nothing more than a quick rehash is well off my radar.
How is Dragon Rising? I wanted to try it out so bad, but a lot of the reviews said it felt a little sloppy.
I'm gonna buy it used from EB, finish it, then sell it to someone for $20 just so those arseholes dont get my money, or the other guys. If I had a 360 I'd pirate it and go around giving people free copies.
