Each new game, less and less people on PC buy it.

Only 5 people on my friends list have Blops2.

BlOps2: 5
MW3: 30
BlOps: 66 (Probably cause of zombies)
WaW: 29
MW2: 54
MW: 45 (most probably have the retail disc pre-steam)
CoD2: 5 (most probably have the retail disc pre-steam)
CoD UO: 4 (most probably have the retail disc pre-steam)
CoD: 4 (most probably have the retail disc pre-steam)

Interesting....

The others have been for sale for much longer, and on sale from time to time. It would be surprising if Blops2 wasn't well behind, although I am a bit surprised it is that far behind.

you should have 5 less friends

They are charging for QUICK SLOT BARS, and no I am not lieing. :p
They are actually charging to have better game mechanics... EA is unbelievable when it comes to being clueless.

Please be good. It's budget priced ($15 I believe), so as long as it's fun, I'm there.


I must be senile this does not look anything like i remember Rise of the Triad to be like? I remember like a crossbow or something, lots of green.... Zzzz, sorry did I just nap? Yeah ugh, weird.

Or maybe they just wanted a cap to make sure the game was a even playing field (minus the cheaters/hackers)?

Then again I don't understand all the bitching over the FOV. Everyone on this forum wasn't going to be playing 'the same re-hashed game in a new setting' that they played last year.

you actually played that trash?

The guy indeed comes across like an arrogant ass but CoD's focus is competitive multiplayer. It's the old "competitive edge" thing. I personally don't buy that me having a field of view that is higher than yours is going to give me any discernible edge - the game moves so fast that the difference is negligible. You'll kill me because I suck regardless of the fact that I can see a tiny bit more of the field than you on the edges.

Call of Duty and the word competitive in the same sentence???
Catching Fish in a barrel is a Olympic sport by now I guess...

I bought it in beta to get beta access before I realized UBISOFT bought out the company... Was seriously disappointing, and I don't think UBISOFT understood the social aspect of the game and how it actually worked/works... so that aspect is missing. The fact UBISOFT goes around promoting this title never mentioning their name should be enough suspicion to avoid purchase

the graphics seem to take into a weird strange pixelated canyon style (boring blend look) and actual track design seemed to be nowhere near reminiscent of the original skill based design stuff, seems everything was wide and fast and speed testing had to do with corning 90 degree bends and not much else. I say pass on it.

Horrible news, when I first joined beta, I was having tons of fun... They have stripped all the fun from this game, and they can't find a medium in any design goal they attempt.... Smedley said this game will launch when its AWESOME, and right now, its the biggest joke on the net, I don't even boot it up anymore. They can't even get the aux resources working so they just scrapped em. I'm calling flop and quick bailout here... The forums have 90% hate control. The game is being so ruined by the need for them to cash on the unlocks. They are probably milking the name and running as fast they can to the bank after realizing they can't balance nothing, and adding cash shop means even more problems. This game has become one of the dumbest fish int he barrel shooters I have ever seen, with things to fool you that's true. The vehicle combat is pointless, while is vehicle spammy now due to total coverup of all the complaints, once real play begins, you'll see there is better alternatives to worthless vehicles not even needed.

Forgot to mention its nothing like Planetside... Just a zone control game that has no meaning, ironically just like 85% of the toys.

I currently work at Best Buy. I can confirm this is correct. We actually outwardly advertise it to people when they call in. We do price match online retailers including newegg.com tigerdirect.com and amazon.com We are an extremely profitable company regardless of what the negative media likes to paint. We will be just fine and we're really going in the right direction retraining our entire staff on doing whats best for the customer first. Best Buy will be around for a very very long time.

Huh, that sounds pretty great then if there's little hassle. If I want some hardware that happens to be both at NewEgg and Best Buy I guess I can save on shipping and day of delivery time by driving over to Best Buy.

You still shop at NewEgg? not the same place anymore...
Amazon blows newegg away now with Prime, and I hate to say that because Amazon is helping put my company out of business.
You can get next day delivery even on a saturday from $3.99 weekday $8.99 saturday. and even same day delivery on some items.. yup same day

(edit certain areas, like LA, Chicago, etc)

They are dead, they will give a great reputation as all companies do as they are trying to sell... Look at the Jewel food store chain.. Same thing, new lower prices, blah blah blah, they are hurting... And you hurt for a reason.. You suck at what you do, you call yourself Best Buy which is further than the truth after your initial 2 year entry... You took basic items like dsl filters that cost $1.99 and started charging $15-$20 for these little items, which left no reason to go to your store. And everyone in the world knows about your $400 tv and $60 for a $5 cable scam. Top that with what the reviewer said below and good luck rebranding other another name. Consumers are starting to see the scam of a rebrand after failure routine.

Here's how I feel about Best Buy after I use to LOVE the place. If someone said lets go shopping, and Best buy was on that list.. I would NOT even go.. I cant even stand walking into that place anymore.

Here comes communism.... Now we are being dictated what we can use on our computers...

As I said... Slippery Slope hysteria. Now we are at communism.

I'm sorry you sit at home and play with your putz all day, but I'm out there in the industry watching every manufacturer monopolize with distributors in the world to control and force feed consumers. They do it to jack up the prices. See, the MFR's buy out the competition and rape their consumers who NEED to buy these parts over cost to replace... While their grow their own brand...

For the past 2 years, since you obviously are not paying attention, is that all the major distributors in the world have just shifted, and gone from having MANY DISTRIBUTORS to a monopolistic single distributor and prices have rose 50% as operating costs have reduced during this time dramatically (even fuel prices). Easily seen by Fed Ex and UPS announcing a 15 cent fuel surcharge price drop.

Now its obvious and you are seeing the giants of tech prepare to do the same... Marketplace = monopoly = control over choice = communism..

Don't you recall the days you could buy your own cable tv receiver? The days you could choose which part you put in your computer? Well sir, soon you won't have that choice, you'll have a price and you'll have to pay it with no option. Other than maybe choosing a new brand, which will be choked out of the market by the controlling dominant force.. We had rules against monopolies for reasons...

Hysteria? The only thing hysterical around here is the whole world sitting back letting this happen....

Government don't care no more.. They don't protect the people. The money is gone and government can only make money if they are spending it... So guess what, bribe bribe bribe accepted. Now Capitalistic country now illegally monopolized becomes communist and everything we died for has been stolen by our forefathers.

The basis of the accusation was based of yesterdays Microsoft dude saying he looks forward to being more like Apple. Apple was always a communist run company.. You had one router to choose from. You paid their price. You had 1-2 size hard drives to choose from, you paid their price... You had one type of memory to buy and you paid their price. If your power supply died, your fucked, you can't run down the street, you need to call Apple and pay their price. Yes good support, who wouldn't give you good support paying $350 for a $80 hard drive equivalent to the PC world. WORLD OF SUCKERS and they are sucking you dry.
