Modern Warfare 2 Boycott in the UK Due to Pricing

7/31/2009 at 8:52 AM

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 Amazon.co.uk it's not uncommon to find games for  £29.99.
