Top 10 Reasons Why Activision Didn’t Register

PlanetXbox360: "Last Monday, everybody was talking about the website and how it re-directed users to the Battlefield 3 website. Some speculated that this was the work of Electronic Arts, who have dubbed Battlefield 3 the Call of Duty-killer. Evidence has surfaced that this is not the work of EA, but rather a fan of the Battlefield series. Still, Activision definitely should have secured the URL. Obtaining URLs is a common tactic in the video game industry, as it prevents incidents like the one that happened last week. This story got us thinking.

Companies usually buy up every domain variable which contains the name of their product, so when a person goes to one they get automatically directed to the main site. If they had been on the ball, someone visiting would've been redirected to So it was a pretty big fail on their behalf.

Type in and see what happens.

They U go...Activision thought that everyone who talks about their FPS refer to Call of Duty name; but not ModernWarfare3. They were wrong. They`;re lost!!! When Call of Duty first came out everyone called it Call of Duty but they didn't realize that ModernWarfare name would become the primary name among us gamers.

And if Activision wants the domain name just pay him off.
