I love cod4 and I wish that the PC community would boycott the sequel and make them drop the price. It won't happen thou and it will fly off the selves.

This is a really damned if you do, damned if you don't situation. If PC gamers do buy the game at the $60 price point, then Activision will see fit to raise other PC titles to that price as well, and then other publishers will follow suit. If PC gamers don't buy this game because of the hiked price, Activision will instead use the low sales as an excuse to abandon PC games and shift their business even further to console games, leaving the PC out of future cross-platform titles.

Yup.

Personally I think some games are worth $60 and I buy them on console for that price. Some are not, of course.

I guess I will just follow the same rules: buy it if it is worth that price to me. That's all we can ever do I suppose.

Bestbuy might have this for 50$ on launch day. I do agree it will probably be a long, long time before it hits 50$, let alone 40$, if it follows what the first one did.

Why would people hate MW1? I mean its like easily the best call of duty game ever made and honestly its one of the best games ive played in awhile. I always find myself going back to the game, reinstalling it just to go through the campaign every now and then and its a whole lot of fun. I cant wait for MW2, even though its probably going to be the same thing.

MW1 has the worst COD campaign, maybe second worst after COD3

I dunno why people hate MW1 either. I thought it was the best CoD in the series hands down. Mainly because it wasn't another WWII shooter and it was in present times. Screw WWII.

And the single player was awesome! The first level was intense, so much action and little things unexpected, especially the nuke going off! Holy s***!

While I think $60 is too much for ANY game, there is at least an argument that you can resell your console games fairly easily. PC games are MUCH harder to resell because of the problem of piracy. Even with that issue aside, there are limited activations for many games now.
