This article serves to beg the gamers of Great Britain not to boycott the game as a whole, but to find creative ways to send a message to Activision. It is a grievance to hang the fate of the gaming world on your shoulders, dear British gamers, but this is your call to action, possibly saving us all from software price gouging. Your role is of the utmost importance to us globally.
Infinity Ward is a fantastic developer that does indeed pay attention to the needs of their fan community. They should in no way be penalized for crafting master entertainment experiences, plus you as gamers deserve to experience said software. The Modern Warfare series has a tremendous community on each platform, so a purchase on any of them is warranted and can be justified. Here’s where the UK comes in: ACTIVISION IS USING YOU. Plain and simple. YOU are no more than a laboratory experiment to them. YOU can send just as brash a message back at them by importing the game from the cheaper American market. The PlayStation 3 and PC DVD-ROM versions should work for you. Please be advised that an NTSC version PS3 game must be played on a high-definition display(with component cables at minimum).
We gamers in the United States are depending on you. If Modern Warfare 2 sells in the United Kingdom at the advertised price point, other publishers will insult your intelligence and follow suit. After that occurs, can you guess what will spread as a virus to the US? We as gamers are in this battle TOGETHER and can always vote with our currency. Please- do not let publishers push you around. Without the customer, there is no market for a product. Below are the links to Play-Asia and Toys ‘n Joys to import the game- you cannot let this opportunity pass you by. The software economy factors in to publisher’s decisions- why shouldn’t the same stand for us? The Gamesmen support you.
