Hacked-off fans petition Activision

Activision has angered its fanbase and gamers everywhere with its recent comments about game pricing. Not only does it want to release Modern Warfare 2 at a higher RRP than standard, but Activision CEO Robert Kotick stated: “You know if it was left to me, I would raise the prices even further.”

The comment was made jokingly but regardless, the fans are fighting back, with a petition that states they will not buy Modern Warfare 2 full-price. At the time of writing there were only ~800 signatures, but the number could shoot up as word spreads. Whether Activision will actually take any notice is another question, as Modern Warfare 2 sales are likely to be record-breaking regardless.
