UK Group Seeks Black Ops Compensation

UK advocacy group Gamers' Voice tells IncGamers they plan on reporting Activision to the Office of Fair Trading since Activision has not replied to an open letter they sent to Activision over bugs in the PC and PS3 editions of Call of Duty: Black Ops. That open letter says, in part: "The complaints range from freezing when a new map is being loaded, locking up of PS3's and PC's while running the game, inability to log into multiplayer matches and connection drops mid game. None of this apparently applies to the Xbox 360 version, which is clearly the lead platform for the title." Chris O'Regan of Gamers' Voice tells them, "As a result of their inaction we will test the might of government agencies against Activision. We can only hope this brings about some litigious action. These agencies do exist to protect our rights as consumers, let us see if they can fulfill their remit on this pressing issue. GV wish to set an example with Activision to ensure games are not released in an unfinished state. If litigation is initiated, then a precedent would be set. In other words, publishers will have to reconsider releasing unfinished code in the future, in the UK at least."

The easiest solution for the consumer regarding "bugs" is to try a demo first. If the developer refuses to put one out, they're either lazy (and probably lazy enough not to test their game properly), or hiding something. Caveat emptor.
