Modern Warfare 3 BLACKOUT DLC Boycott Petition

The team behind Modern Warfare 3 Blackout movement (that took place on April 20) has started a new petition called "Boycott Call of Duty MW3 DLC". According to details given by one of the team member, this new petition is "the last chance the call of duty community to make a statement about their dis-pleasures with Infinity Ward and their lack of support."

The story is too old to be commented.

Not trolling or anything but how did that blackout workout??

Boycott? lol

They bought it, they're done...

Better yet, don't buy the next iteration.
A petition isn't going to sway them.

The blackout didn't go so well, I got on to play the game and there were like 500k on Xbox Live that day.

The problem is that the majority of people that play games like COD don't go to forums and could care less about boycotts or blackouts.

I wonder how many laughs Bobby Kotick gets out of these efforts.

I never found out without laughing myself, ask Mr. Owl...

Three hundred and seventy-five.

That is how many licks it takes to get to the tootsie roll center of a tootsie pop.

At least for me, I mean.

Way back in grade school after one of the yearly state tests I sat there at my desk and counted(tally marks). In case you were wondering lol.

+bubbles, Moby. I've done it a few times, but I can hardly remember what I did earlier in the day; my childhood is mostly lost to me.

On topic, these things might work if more people cared. Most of them don't, however. It's different from the argument that "Since everybody's playing, they must not have a problem." But most of the people saying that don't seem to get it: not everybody who has a problem with something speaks up.

Does everybody being oppressed by a government speak up? Do all people affected by unfair laws speak up? Far more important stuff than gaming, and yet you still can't say that everyone who cares is saying or doing anything about the problem. Why should gaming be any different?

I wish things like this actually did work, but they have as little effect as "voting with your wallet." Activision doesn't miss my little $60 in the grand scheme of things.
