I'd love to but I don't think the Mrs would be happy lol.
#8
lol bad times, u should say its for educational purposes, watch birds n such :thumbsup:
#9
Don't see why this is getting voted cold it's clearly the cheapest price for this edition.
#10
If people vote cold can you say why you think it's not a good deal please.
#11
Although the game will be good, the pricing level should discourage any reasonable gamer from buying it .
Activion tests buyers in purpose to lift prices of the games .That's a 'great' move, especially during recession. This 'trial' should be boycotted.

...I usually do not vote cold...but this time is an exception................Think and wait - do not buy a game at more than half price of the console.Do not satisfy unlimited apetites of greedy %^£$###.If you do, next time you will pay more.Buy something else and wait until the price will reach reasonable level.

I totally agree with you, I think Call Of Duty is amazing but it is absolutely ridiculous how much they are charging people. Then with this release they are bringing out the normal edition, hardened edition and prestige edition! Unfortunately for me, my son wants the prestige edition for christmas; £120!!! My other half didn't help by saying that they are totally limited edition, only being sold by hmv online and once stock had gone that would be it. I can imagine how much they are going to be flogged for on ebay. Activision should be ashamed of themselves :x

Its not Activision fault!
Supply and demand. If people are stupid enough to pay £120 for a game with some stuff they will never use, then Activision and other companies will keep bringing them out.
If people dont buy them, they will stop, simple as.

In saying that, if they can be sold for alot more on ebay (to even more stupid people) then I can see why someone would do that.

Common, is it not Activion fault? Supply and demand? Are they forecasting undersupply of blank DVDs? Bankruptcy of distribution firms?
Do not be a sheep, do not follow. This is an experiement and if they succeeed , the prices will go up ? Recently, chairman of Activision said that electronic games are far too cheap - this is a response to the words. Do not buy it, go to competition.

Just take into account that game industry is a little bit specific - you cannot return the game because you do not like it or you have found it too short, you cannot legally borrow it and the demo will present only the best bits of the game ...and now you are pre-ordering it paying cash upfront.
Yep,I would let them rise the prices but also force to take the software back if it has not fully satisfied promises and expectations.Do not let them to become stronger, they are strong enough...

In my opinion it mostly is Activision's fault. The argument for your statement works both ways, fair enough " supply and demand " but I am sure that Call Of Duty enthusiasts would be just as happy to have only the regular game but obviously Activision know how popular their product is and decided to rip people off even more by offering the hardened and prestige editions. Even more infuriating were the comments from the chairman of Activision saying that he thinks the games should be increased in price just as 7777777 said below. That is ridiculous and his comments angered many people. And yes you are right many people will pay the £120 price tag believing that they are owning a limited edition piece of kit but again that's how Activision wanted it to be; they were approached by other retailers who offered to sell the prestige edition but were turned down. It really is ridiculous how greedy some companies can actually be

Is it more than a half cost of development,tests,production, launch and services of XBOX 360 Arcade ? :) .Because it costs more than the half.
As you know, In real world, it depends on success of the game if the monnies spent on development were high or just right.Do companies have to earn good money even though the just launched game is a total crap? If they fail to produce a good product, market should force them to improve or terminate the business.Too high profit margin makes them innefficient.
Pharmaceutical companies also try to convince us that they spend billions of pounds on effective development, therefore the medicines have to be 'properly' priced ...and nobody wants to mention a fact that majority of the most successful drugs were a result of coincidence, Universities' work or products invented by small companies with small budget. However, because they have power, they can easily buy effects of somebody's work, consequently most of the profits is being spend on innefective searches, promotional activities, top salaries and top dividends...and you still believe that the drugs have to cost that much...Once upon a time ;) when the 'Big Six' had not been so big , they would not have the power to create another animal flu, and sell the remedy/ vaccines of questionnable value for billions.
Big budgets do not necessarily make all the industries working better and this certainly applies to gaming industry.Not all the best games were created with very high budgets and not the expenditure guarantee the highest quality, although may guarantee a commercial success if the promotion is nicely done and high enough number of people is brainwashed as Actvision intends to do :D .

Common, do not get crazy and stop trying to tell me that the £70+ is linked to production costs.It's just rip off.Activision are just bunch of chancers.
#19
The people moaning about the cost are being ridiculous. Fora game like COD, from which anyone that really wants the game will spent countless hours on it. COD4 for EG, i was happy to spend 3/4/5 hours a night playing it, totally well over 200 hours. 60 quid for 200 hours entertainment?

Think about it....
#20
to be honest i have to agree with what has been said - to charge £55 which is more then half the price of the xbox 360 arcade is close to ridiculous - no way does it cost more then half as much to manufacture a game compared to a console - okay the development process of a game is pricey but compared to the development process of a console its much less, a console requires much more testing compared to a game - considering that faults are impossible to put right as we've already seen with the RROD, if there is a fault with a game its solved simply with a patch

£55 for the standard version of a game is absolutely ludicrous - I remember when I could buy the latest released game for just £29.99 off Amazon when the RRP was just £39.99

if Activision tried this with any other game apart from Modern Warfare 2 there would be a much bigger outcry - but since it IS Modern Warfare 2 people don't seem to care - and anyway how can you all be so sure that Modern Warfare 2 will live up to its hype?
#21
COD is like apple you just pay for the name....

The rrp for 360 games when they came out were £49.99 and soon dropped, its only £5 over retail

Yep, you can go through the game 10 times and the cost of entertaining per hour is going to be even lower :D

If you still believe that Activision plays fair, please have a look at the 2 articles below :

Chairman of Activision threatens Sony, June 2009 - PS3is too expensive !

Chairman of Activision after new,high prices unveiled, August 2009 - 'if it was left to me, I would raise the prices even further'

Arrrrgh :x

And THIS is exactly why Activision are doing it.

If you honestly think they will stop at Call of Duty if this sells well you are terribly naïve. They are testing a price point to see if people will pay this for games.

If it was a move to recoup costs for a game which has required higher than normal development then why is the UK the ONLY country seeing the price rise? We were already paying more than the USA before the price hike!

I give it 6 months before more publishers have jumped on this bandwagon and increased RRPs on their games :(

hot topic.

ofcourse activision is ripping people off. they will make a boat load of money even if the game sells at the standard price BUT now theyve raised it they will make even more.

BUT , to be honest , call of duty isa damn fine series that has people coming back again and again . most games you play once and you never even feel like playing again. pesonally ,i have a rule of not paying more than £10 a game which means thier is sometimes a 2 year lag between game release and me owning it , BUT if activision make a great game and people buy it at the higher price , then how can they be blamed. they are a company afterall, they are in the business to make money. its not like they are charging £55 for "lost - the video game" , they have a damn fine product which people want .

and if your son/daughter MUST have the game tell them to get a paper round.

Yep, you are understanding person :)
How do we know that the game is 'a damn ,fine product' ? It has not been released yet and you cannot take it back if it is not a fine rpduction as you would normally do with other products.They have not even got a limited time to fix all the bugs...and they are already powerful enough to threaten Sony.

We just expect that the game is going to be a quality one and Actvision is brainwashing us, through the pricing strategy making the desire of having it even stronger .Another issue - you have got to pay the min. £55 to assesss whether they ripped you off a lot ... or just a little :) .

Activision are becoming what EA used to be - releasing sequels every year for every platform, they were unwilling to publish Ghostbusters simply because they (or Bobby Kotick rather) didn't see potential in it becoming a franchise which they could exploit and release a sequel year after year - speaking of Bobby Kotick the guy seems to be against his own product - the guy doesn't seem to love what he does, rather seeing is as a money machine - i'm sure if you speak to the head of any other games company they would live and die along with what they sell simply because they sell what they love

the irony is i'm probably still going to cave in and buy Modern Warfare 2 - something which I'll hate myself for

Bobby Kotick seems like an absolute idiot, you can almost see the pound signs flashing in his eyes! Going back to the post earlier on in the thread where it was stated that it's not Activision's fault, obviously the evidence speaks for itself and they are attempting to brainwash gamers with their clever marketing tools. It's never going to happen but how I would love to see this game fail epically and wipe that smug smile off the CEO of Activision's face ;-)

So activision are wrong for making money? i cant see them doing anything wrong. There making money probably 3m or more in the uk alone on COD MW2... so what? we like the game, we buy it.

ITS UP TO US IF WE SPEND OUR MONEY ON A CERTAIN GAME

if you dont like it dont buy it simple as that.

There really should not be any arguement on this matter. So what if they exploit COD but throw away ghostbusters. There in it to make good quality games that ends up making good money for them.

yes but this will result in all other games increasing in price - this isn't about whether or not Modern Warfare 2 is a good or bad game (well partly in my view) but the fact that this will have negative effects on the whole gaming industry

and come on, to do something like this in a recession is just down right unacceptable
#32
Thanks to all the idiots who have voted cold for such valid reasons as they think it's a bad game before it's come out and the fact they think it's overpriced, well done.
Shouldn't the voting be purely about whether this is the cheapest price you can get this game for at the moment??
Just because the RRP is high it doesn't make this a cold deal, the deal is the cheapest you can get this and is still 21% off the RRP.

Just for your information, even after everything that I have said in this thread I voted hot based purely on the fact that this is the BEST price that you can pre-order this ridiculously overpriced game at for the moment. I am a call of duty fan, I have cod4 and cod5 but what I don't appreciate is some idiot in a suit exploiting me and my children just to make his already fat wallet fatter, so you may want to consider that before insulting other people :thumbsup:

Do something like what? Make an amazing game that is WELL worth the money, if you're getting the standard version pre order deals have been around £35 which I think is a complete bargain for what's bound to be an amazing game.
You get what you pay for and standard RRP on a game wether it's terrible/really short etc is about 45 or 50 pounds. Cheap deals are done on these games because they know no one would buy them otherwise.
People are still playing Call of Duty 4 online just as much as when it was first release nearly two years ago, it's incredibly popular so why wouldn't they want to get as much as they can for the sequel?

How is it ridiculously overpriced? This is the Steelbook special edition for collectors, if you just want the game there have been pre order deals on the standard one for around £35 which I think is really good considering Cod 4 is still being sold for a pretty penny nearly 2 years after release.
And my comment was aimed at the people voting cold for invalid reasons, not everyone like yourself.

oh so you've played the final version?

and its attitudes like this which is the EXACT reason Activision have the guts to raise prices like this - bobby kotick makes $15 million dollars including bonuses and yet he still wants more money? sorry but a company that has a total disregard for their customers' pockets deserves no money at all

thank god Bungie still have some sense and have at least priced Halo ODST at a reasonable price
#38
No of course I haven't played the final version, I'm going on what footage I've seen and the fact it's going to be similar to a game that is my absolute favourite game cod4.
This is being released at a reasonable price, most games come out brand new at around £45.

For example the steelbook edition of Killzone 2 is here - http://www.shopto.net/PS3/GAMES/PS3KI00-Killzone%202%20-%20Limited%20Edition%20Collector%27s%20Box.html
For 44.95, only £10 more than the pre order price for this so that shows how much these editions go for.
I think people are moaning about the price purely because the makers said that they're making the price higher, that's not going to effect the buyer because huge retailers such as Asda/Tesco etc will always sell them at a reasonable price.

The RRP of the STANDARD edition of Modern Warfare 2 is £55 so I'm not really sure what you're getting at...
#40
There's no way you'll be paying that though, I agree it's stupid of them to say that the price is going up but it's not going to effect anyone, I've never brought a game at RRP or even slightly near it.
There's always someone doing a deal.
