Not always, frequently, and its a hot deal when someone posts one of those frequent deals.

If you still haven't got CoD4 at this stage you might as well wait for MW2.
#6
Cant believe this game is still over £15, great game but no trophies or rumble support. Guess its Activision's policy, but after MW2 comes out Im sure it will drop to £15 surely.

its rumbles on the xbox ;-)

that aside if u aint got this game in your collection then what u playing at??

million times better than that awful world at war, granted the graphics might look better heck its a year newer but the mp is just not as fluid or as good
#10
Might have seen it in ASDA and Tesco at £25, but might not have been the Game of the Year Edition

Great Price

I can't agree any more. Something the Office of Fairtrading ought to look into.:-D

Supply and demand, while ever people keep buying it, it will stay at a given price, the same with everything really :roll: Saying that, IMHO it deserves to stay at a high price because its a top class game. If you aint already got it JUST BUY IT!! :thumbsup:
#13
this will be a tenner when MW2 comes out

Seriously, don't be fooled by the GOTY label - there is now NO difference between GOTY & regular editions unless it has a sticker on the outside stating it contains a code for the extra maps. I bought the GOTY a couple of weeks ago from Tesco when it finally hit £25(!!!) to find no code inside. Thought I'd received a duffer so exchanged it for another to find the same. Logged a ticket with Activision to be told it was a "limited time offer" despite that not being published & both versions continuing to be commercially available, for different prices!!
In summary - COD4 GOTY identical to COD4... frankly I feel totally ripped off and I imagine there are quite a few others who bought GOTY expecting to get the map pack. Oh no hang on it's probably my fault...

I'm glad you posted that. I never realised they were pulling a scam like that. I've never once read about it being limited/ time restricted.

Exactly if they prices it at £25 like they have they will make more money than selling at £15. Businesses try to make most money

That is quite a con. I don't feel so bad about having my used GOTY copy now which of course came without the code.

Just gutted I bought it a week after the map pack was half price!

Good price voted hot.

I hate the map pack - and uninstalled it to stop me the matchmaking system putting me in those new levels.
#21
Activision seem to be interested in higher prices rather than the volume of sales, which although are high for COD could be even higher if they didnt insist on such high prices. Seems strange, but I guess it must work for them.

MW2 has an RRP of £54.99 and is available for £44.99 at most places (cheapest being Shopto currently at £42.99). Its ironic that Activision are slamming Sony and telling them to reduce their prices, when they've put theirs up!
#22
it baffles me how people can moan abou the price of this game... 'not under £15' or wait till its a tenner... i understand we all have our monetary limits but come on guys how can u moan about price fixing at £25 for COD4, I guess these people havent played it ... Some of us old cronies would pay that for a rubbish Ps1 game back in the day without moaning. Come back to the real world!
#23
I find it a bit hard to consider paying £25 for such an old game when I get new games on release day for £26 from ASDA... I think I paid about £25 for COD4 when it was new too.

I paid £35 (plus quidco and points worked out at £29.50) on release, its almost 2 years on and the price hasnt really dropped, thats the issue for me. Whilst its a great game, every other game drops to under £20 usually within 18 months but this is the only game that bucks that trend. Just seems strange to me.
#25
i think in this day and age we have been blessed with price drops and maybe prices have become more realistic in line with the quality of the game. Like i said us oldies were used to being ripped off for the crappiest of games on the PS1 and PS2 so i was used to paying certain prices. But waiting for the drop depends on how much you want/like the game .

The fact that this game was £25 on a promotional deal at Gamestation not long after release 18 months ago and hasn't been found cheaper since smells like price fixing to me. But if people are happy to pay £25 for an old game that's up to them, but if it was Fifa '08 for the same price it would be the coldest deal in history.

FGS, theres no conspiracy here, its just business :roll:. If people stopped buying it, it would drop like an ostrich from a skyscraper, I very much doubt that Activision has anything to do with it as its the retailer that sets the price. Think of it this way, you have a product that you pay £1 to make, people happily buy it off you for £30 and you are making a good living. Are you then going to think, no, this is wrong, Im cancelling the Porsche and dropping the price to £1.10??? No didn't think so!!

Like someone has already said, for some reason we expect games to be heavily discounted yet will keep paying the extortionate prices of say petrol without so much as a second thought :?

supermarkets put the empty cases out and keep the stock in a drawer kid

goty with the download map is not a limited time offer and i would like to see proof of this if you reckon it is

Mine was definitely done this way and it would have been very easy for the assistant to "forget" to put it in the case (not that he would have gotten away with it!!!). I think it sucks though if they have stopped giving the codes while keeping the GOTY edition tag.
#31
Good price !
#32
i.ve been playing this game for months, if it broke tomorrow i would go out and spend £25 on it, out of all the games i have it's the one i play the most and have most fun with, if you have not played it old or :thumbsup:not probably the best game out, for live play at least,

Having spent 7 years as a manager in retail it is the publisher that offers discounts to the stores, the only stores that sell anything at cost/discount for a limited period are the big supermarkets. And yes I agree that if a game is not selling well then the publisher will discount the product to the retailer to encourage sales of slow selling game. Activision don't want people to sell this game cheap now because you will be less likely to buy the newer more expensive version in a couple of months, but if the COD4 is still close to full price you are more likely to but the new one. It won't be until early next year for an official publisher/retailer price drop to sub £20 for COD4.

generally its down to the supplier and retailer who does discounts not the publisher..... and generally they buy in bulk for sales/promotions etc which enables them to do it for a cheaper price with larger discounts

its still this price as sales have never slowed and people buy this game regardless of cost and for the record this game has been £20 on heaps of occasions

i too have several years management experience in a very large retail store and not a supermarket

But it's the publisher who sells the game to the supplier. That's why when EA were No.1 you would never see there old titles reduced by much if at all, now that there sales have dipped loads of EA games have been reduced over recent months. But anyway, we'll agree to disagree.

really a nice game. i played all the versions of COD 2 on PC

yeah i agree that the the publishers do change their prices sometimes, which results in a cheaper rrp and they do occasionally run publisher funded promotions

but generally the sales that are had in retailers are to get rid of store/company overstocks which are sold on a non return basis...... and seasonal sales where bulk discount is sought for purchasing thousands or tens of thousands in the case of larger retailers with hundreds of stores:)
