Yeah, I'm a total sucker, so I'll still be buying MW2 right away. I have no willpower.

It's not just about willpower with MW2 for me. If I don't get it straight away then all my friends will get to the higher ranks on multi-player before me.

I'm 30 and I realise that comment brings shame upon my family.

There is only one option if you want to preserve your honor: seppuku.

Re: Activision Screws Europe Again

The only games I've ever bought at release were Starfleet Command III (which was wise since it was taken off the market soon after) and MechWarrior 4 (which I have not regretted.)

Re: Activision Screws Europe Again

Who didn't see this coming?
Activision CEO Bobby Kotick has said that he would like to see further video game price hikes following strong pre-order sales for Modern Warfare 2.

...

"As far as the premium priced product, you know, collector's editions and things like that, I'd say we're seeing probably more interest than we have in the past on the collector's editions, so that's a pretty good indication of the interest in these franchises," said Kotick.
"You know if it was left to me, I would raise the prices even further."

Re: Activision Screws Europe Again

I can't remember the last time I bought a game on release day. I'll usually wait until the price comes down.

One game I might pick up on release day, however, is Starcraft 2 when it finally arrives.

I am looking forward to that Tony Hawks ride game that can only be bought with that board controller debacle that's about to hit the store at a wallet friendly £99....

I already pre-ordered Cooking mama 2 for the DS which comes bundled with a new kitchen for £7000.

Re: Activision Screws Europe Again

Well it doesn't surprise me to be honest, I'm a bit disappointed.

This is what they did to the game 'Mirrors Edge', within a fortnight I saw the game being sold for £20 at GAME because nobody was buying it. I doubt the same thing will happen in this case (and Mirrors Edge looked like a boring game), but here's hoping.
