I'm also boycotting the purchase of this game. There is a thread on the forums that describes the price gouging of our neighbors accross the pond.

I cant wait to play this... I might not be good at it but COD4: MW was the game that made me appreciate shooters again.

Probably won't make a difference but I'm not to keen on supporting Activision after reading what they plan to charge for the game in Europe. If they think they can charge that over there and get away with it we'll be next for MW3.

Having said that it is a ******* sweet looking game and I'm gutted that I won't be buying it on release, but I'm sticking to my guns.

No way they would get away with charging $80+ dollars for a game in NA. Aside from MMOs... No one would pay that. That's probably what will happen in Europe. And if people actually do buy it and play it for a while, then sell it back to FutureShop/Bestbuy/EB or whoever, the retailer would make huge money on resale. Activision will definately see low sales numbers at launch in Europe though.

No they cant encorp, once they start everyone else will start to raise their prices, computer games are already to expensive as it is, there is no reason what so ever for a raise in price for this game. They are using pretty much the same engine as the other 2, they have done little work on the game as a whole, and now they want to sell it for stupid amounts of money. No game is worth that.

The thing about computer games is that you can't see it back to say EB Games or Best Buy. So you have to keep it no matter you want it or not. That sucks big time!!!
