TGN writes,"PC Gamers worldwide are gearing up for a potential boycott of Modern Warfare 2 after the announced price hike by Activision. At the time of this news posting, almost 68% of respondents say that they will not support the newer, higher price. Most say that Activision's excuse about the weakness of world currency is not to blame, and they refuse to pay the higher price.
"According to a straw poll conducted here on the Total Gaming Network, it is clear that the majority of PC gamers will not support the price hike on Modern Warfare 2.
"Some, however, do agree with the decision and say the additional $10 or $15 will not deter them from purchasing the game, while others say that they will follow their standard purchasing pattern and buy the game when retailers sell it for a discount."
Do PC gamers really boycott with all this bit torrent sites? If they don't like something they can just get the game free. Treat your PC gamers right or don't bother making PC games.
Does anyone know how much the PC version will actually cost?
Screw them. I'll buy it used. For CHEAP. Wasn't picking up MW2 anyway, but still. That ridiculous. I hope it's so bug-ridden and they go out of business. Activision is poison.
Yeah, that was a LITTLE extreme, huh. Really though, who would miss them? You? You? You? Or you? See! Nobody. ghahahah..
Alright I'm outta here. Must be boycott season or something.
One thing that I think is hurting the gaming industry on the pricing front is all of the smaller publishers and developers being gobbled up by companies such as Activision and EA. We're seeing a serious dwindling of competition (See the Sierra purchase), and that is most likely also a factor in driving prices up.
