Modern Warfare 2 Boycott in the UK Due to Pricing

It seems boycotts and petitions are all the rage these days.  The latest is occurring across the pond in the UK over the price of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2.  No, they aren't angry over the edition with night vision goggles, that kind of investment is to be expected.  

Activision has priced that game at  £54.99 - translated into American Dollars that's almost $90!  Like any successful boycott, the best way to make a dent is to vote with your wallet.  Total Gaming Network is stating that 60% of its user base is boycotting the game.   If the 60% number holds true it may make a dent.  

For some perspective, most games are released for  £39.99 to  £49.99 in the UK.  Though on it's not uncommon to find games for  £29.99.
