Wow, Square is a better publisher than Activision. Slashed the price already. Over here it's still at full retail price.

feitclub2936d ago

Games in Japan usually experience a sizeable price drop after a few months to stimulate sales. Activision doesn't need to do that in the US because nothing stops people from buying Call of Duty. Hell, the CEO once talked (jokingly?) about raising the price - just because.

yeah id question that joke as well, not only does he want to raise the price but he also wants the game to be subscription based.

The Japs just knows it's a bad game and it is.

whitesoxfalife2936d ago

You went out and bought it ....didn't you "gtamike" mw2 is not a bad game at all stop bashing so hard to get ya points up

gtamike2935d ago

Played MW2 at friends house was ok, it's over hyped.

The link you have given does NOT mention that Square Enix is cutting prices for Modern Warfare 2 in Japan. So this story is NOT a duplicate!

HarryM2936d ago

It's covering the same topic SO IT IS.

whitesoxfalife2936d ago

the link KORS it does talk about it at the end of the article

Kors2936d ago (Edited 2936d ago )

The Japan price cuts news wasn't there in Examiner's article originally when this article was submitted.

Examiner edited the article to include that info.

Very good for non Japanese game. but mw2 was not a great game.

whitesoxfalife2936d ago

who said the game had to be great!! but the game was very good and fun it did what it was suppose to do, if you ask me.... name a game that is "great" beside uncharted 2 god of war 3 halo series but these aren't great too right?

peowpeow2936d ago

Sure to me it'd be great if MW didn't exist but It's just hard not to feel like random perks and weapons have been tacked on, with the same style (also very short) campaign.

I just replayed ME2 and Assassin's Creed 2 and I must say, they are GREAT games

wissam2936d ago

You really got a good point here. I was not offending the game.
