$10 hike; Modern Warfare 2 costs $60 for PC

October 17th, 2009

modern-warfare2-amazon-pcversion$10 price hike on Modern Warfare 2 PC version Activision has again done what they think in pricing. This time it is for the PC version. The normal PC game RRP of $50 has been replaced. Modern Warfare 2 will cost $60 on PC.

The main advantage for PC gamers is that the games cost less than the PS3 or Xbox 360 version. It costs at least $10 or £10 in the US and UK market respectively. This time it is not the same story. Amazon.com as well as the GameStop has listed their PC version for $60. This means Activision is again charging more cash for a game.

Earlier we had seen that the Call of Duty series had too many piracies on PC. This time how the situation will help Activision is unknown. The price hike gives opportunistic situations to piracy in fact.

Well, one thing is sure. Raising the prices of videogames and consoles instead of dropping them is really becoming a disturbing trend.

Rumour: MW2 on Nintendo’s Wii platform

May 7th, 2009
Comments Off

it’s not uncommon for Call of Duty games to see release on Nintendo’s Wii platform, Modern Warfare was a bit of an odd exception, leaving something of a hole between Call of Duty 3 and World at War.

And it appeared that Modern Warfare 2 would continue that trend, announced only for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. However, Amazon.co.uk seems show otherwise, listing a version of the title for the Wii hardware as well.

Of course, this may simply be an error on the UK branch of Amazon’s part, as they are the only one which seems to show the title, in addition to the fact that they still show the “Call of Duty” name attached, which the sequel has dropped.

On the other hand, Activision often tends to release its games on as many platforms as it can, so ultimately, we’ll just have to wait and see where this goes. Perhaps E3 will hold an answer.
