Activision milking UK consumers again, and again, and again.

Fishy Fingers2590d ago (Edited 2590d ago )

Only the foolish ones who dont shop around. They always have price wars at supermarkets over COD. Never paid over £30 for one.

ugabugaz2590d ago

Wish we had supermarket wars around the US :(
30 GBP comes around to $48 dollars.

Fishy Fingers2590d ago

Ha, it would actually be less, as 20% of that is VAT (tax), so closer to $40.

iamnsuperman2590d ago

Sainsbury's is defiantly one to look out for. I think it was £26ish for MW2 on day one. Love it when supermarkets compete with each other.

evrfighter12590d ago

Even the pricing has a reveal...jeez

Emmettcelticfan2590d ago

the deal in tesco near me was you got £20 PSN card or £20 worth of microsoft points if you bought black ops which was £40. so essentially you could spend the £20 on items in the store or save it for the maps

BlackKnight2590d ago

There are taxes here as well, just depends on the state/county.

Sales Tax here is 8.25% :(

God California pisses me off sometimes. Thank goodness for Steam being out-of-state though :)

Lifendz2590d ago (Edited 2590d ago )

MW2, I bought day one. less than 2 weeks later I was back to COD4. Black Ops purchased day one, and I eventually left for BFBC2.

Not falling for this again. The hacks, glitches, bugs, etc are just too big a distraction. Activision got me twice, but there won't be a third time.

I don't think Bad Company 3 will surpass MW3, but I do think it'll do well enough to make Activision get a little nervous.

gamingdroid2590d ago

Mine is around 8.75% in San Diego County.

However, areas like San Francisco (I used to live there), have taxes as high as 9.75%.

Of course, places like Norway has a 25% sales tax, and it is just automatically included in the price somewhat hidden. I don't know if they changed that, but the culture is, it's fine for me to pay more if everyone has it better.

The problem? People there don't have it better because they pay more taxes, it is because of the oil money!!!

Anyhow, I hate taxes in California as well. State is going downhill at this rate.

Scrotie_McBoogerball2590d ago

I don't know about you guys but I haven'y bought a COD since WaW.

They charge $99-120 in Australia day one.

Seeing as we are $1.10 US at the moment it is FUCKING disgusting seeing as in the US it's mostly $40-60.

jessupj2590d ago

@ Scrotie_McBoogerball

It's because there's only 1 wholesaler here so there no competition. You're absolutely right though, it's absolutely disgusting. My blood boils everytime I'm reminded of it.

That's why I ALWAYS buy online. Ebay is a god send. I can buy new high profile games for $45-$60 inc postage. Only thing is I have to wait 1-2 weeks for it to get here from the UK or USA so I miss out of that 'feeling' of community of being the first few to play it but it's worth it.

jetlian2590d ago

its your gov that makes it so high. all the contries listed impose import taxes which ends up on your games

wsoutlaw872590d ago

No sales tax in New Hampshire

Fil1012590d ago

yeah i get my games from asda or tescos

Sony3602589d ago

Buying their game, regardless of where from, will still be rewarding this kind of behavior from them. They still get the same cut.

I won't be buying this game even if it's £25. Haven't done since COD4. Battlefield is the superior series that doesn't try to milk its fans.

Anarki2589d ago

This ones set on England, so lets milk the English moar money! herp

If consumers are dumb enough to fall for it...thats their problem. If your selling apples for $3 each and you KNOW a competitor is selling them for $2.50...would you inform your customers that they could be saving 50 cents?

DarkCharizard_2590d ago

Activision milking UK consumers Modern Warfare, and Modern Warfare 2, and Modern Warfare 3.

Solidus187-SCMilk2590d ago (Edited 2590d ago )

that is alot more than $60 right?

bumnut2590d ago

Thats RRP, most games have an RRP of £49.99 but are priced at £39.99 so it is only £5 more.

But its still a rip!

Trroy2590d ago (Edited 2590d ago )

$60 + 10% sales tax == $66
$66 / 0.75 for ~25% combined federal+state income tax = $88
$66 / 0.8 for ~20% combined federal+state income tax = $82.50

Since VAT is basically sales + income tax, it's really about the same, although it varies depending on which US state you live in, of course -- some of them have no income tax, and some others have no sales tax. One has neither, to my recollection (New Hampshire? I forget)

wsoutlaw872590d ago

yep NH nas no state income or sales taxes. I live there but go to college in CT and it took me like 3 times to get used to the fact i have to bring more than 60$ when buying a game.

Sony3602589d ago

@bumnut

Bottom line: It's £15 more than any other brand new game you'll find in retail stores.

BeastlyRig2590d ago

home much is €54.99 in usd??

NateCole2590d ago

Well, a lot of people like being milked. I only bought MWF1. Because of my no resell policy i still have it.

Its the same sh1t every year but i guess some people just like the same sh1t every year. Its their money though so can't really say much about it.

TVippy2590d ago

And americans still get it for measly $60? BULLSHIT!

user13372589d ago

Crazy isnt it. Although I did buy both mw2 and black-ops, I got them for under £25 from sainsbury's lol.

hiredhelp2589d ago (Edited 2589d ago )

What a shocker a cod game that's gonna sell for £45, never thought I'd see that

/s

rabidpancakeburglar2590d ago

How can anyone disagree with that comment? the going price for a new cod in most stores is usually always £45

rabidpancakeburglar2590d ago

That's the RRP, the games get sold for £10 cheaper than the RRP in most stores

Sony3602589d ago (Edited 2589d ago )

You don't seem to understand plain English when you see it, rabidpancakeburgler.

All games have a RRP. Most(if not ALL) sell for less. This article is stating that MW3 won't be selling for less like ALL OTHER GAMES DO, and will cost an insulting £55.

NukaCola2590d ago (Edited 2590d ago )

Uh every game is basically the same price. It's usually really expensive, unless it's a shovelware game, which are sometimes too expensive still. Am I missing something?

The best bet is to shop around. I always rack up tons of credit on Amazon. Buying the last three games just purchased be inFAMOUS 2 for free, so it's pretty sweet to be honest.

iHEARTboobs2590d ago

I always order from amazon. Was about to pre-order infamous 2 but after seeing the Kessler skin in action, i'm going with Best Buy.

AKissFromDaddy2590d ago

Amazon gets the Reaper skin though, looks cool.

That until tesco advertise it for 25 quid
It's worth 25 quid but not a penny more

MidnytRain2590d ago (Edited 2590d ago )

Almost all full retail games for the 360 and PS3 are priced this way. Why is this considered news?

bumnut2590d ago

Not true, they usually have an RRP of £49.99 but sell for £39.99

Not sure why Activision think cod is worth an extra fiver

MidnytRain2590d ago

To maximize profits because they know lots of people will buy the game.

guigsy2590d ago

Doesn't matter, supermarkets always try to undercut each other on launch day, meaning it will cost significantly less.

CarlosX3602590d ago

Exactly. I still don't get how this piece of news is #1 of N4G news. Baffles me. If news like this is getting this much traffic, I'd be posting it by now.
