Yarr me mateys! No way I'm paying that much for a PC game, Activision is the worst publisher in the business.

Lol, don't like the price, don't buy it. I think $50 is too much for a game as is, but that's just me and my wallet. The price may be justified by costs vs profits, but that doesn't mean I have to pay it. 99% of the time I wait for prices to drop or a Steam sale or something before I buy a game. Unless that game is Bioshock 2 or Half-Life Ep 3.

funny how people get bent out of shape for $10 raise in price but dont say nothing about having to pay monthly to play WoW.. if the game is good and you like to play it.. then buy it, who cares if its $10 more than the last release. everyone likes to make money, why should activision be any different.

Starcraft 2 and Diablo 3 are from Blizzard, owned by Activision. This "boycott" won't last...

Perhaps you missed the outrage over No Lan in SC2?
