On Modern Warfare 2 Pricing

We asked Activision about the $59.99 price tag for Modern Warfare 2 uncovered earlier, and they provided us with a brief statement:

We don't comment on our product pricing strategies, however, we believe that Modern Warfare 2 will deliver a film-like narrative as well as countless hours of rich multiplayer gaming long-after its release.

They've been using the same engine since call of duty 4 and the engine has also been used in other games besides COD.

They've been building off the Quake 3 engine since MoHAA, but they have done a lot tweaking and reworking to it over the years. Just watching a video of this one shows notably better lighting range, much cleaner shadowing, and far more physics detail. I've heard they added texture streaming too, allowing them to make the maps notably larger. Granted, it is no Crysis, but one can only expect so much from a multiplatform game, and at least the netcode is bound to put Crysis to shame.

As for the pricing, I have two conlifcting views on this:

I wouldn't mind so much if they kicked the price up on the console versions too, but seeing as how MS and Sony take $10 in licensing fees on the consoles, it only seems right the PC versions should stay $10.

I don't mind so much as this is a CoD game, and they've been great about giving PC gamers free content even though they charge for it on the consoles.

So yeah, I guess I'm ambivalent on the price, and will likely just go for the Walmart deal regardless.
