New DLC is landing for Call of Duty Black Ops II, and Activision have hired the acting talents of Peter Stormare to sell it in the hilarious trailer above. Hit the video above to check it out and all…
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 will be priced at £54.99 when it is released in November – cue rage.
Activision are blaming rising production costs and the falling strength of the pound for the sudden and seemingly disproportional hike.
Depsite the game retailing in the US for a mere $59.99, only £36 in sterling! Explain that Activision!
And with Activision now regularly breaking the £50 barrier with it’s games (DJ Hero), it won’t be long before others follow suit.
Console games have been meandering toward the £50 mark for a while and ultimately it will be the consumer who sets the price. If, come November 10th, gamers band together, hold strong and don’t buy Modern Warfare 2 at this ridiculous price – Activision will be forced to bring the price down. And it will set a precedent, developers will know the £50 is too much, and it is too much.
Will that happen? Will-it-heck-as-like.
