Call Of Duty: Black Ops – Is price too expensive?

By Posted 5 May 2010, 07:59

For those of you planning to pick up Treyarch’s next Call of Duty game, titled Black Ops – we have the suggested retail price for the game. It shouldn’t be too surprising for those of you who forked out the cash for Modern Warfare 2.

As reported from VG247, Activision has slapped a £54.99/$59.99 retail price on the game. Retailers have made it slightly easier on your pockets by reducing the price by £10 over in the UK, but it looks like you won’t be able to find the game for less than £44.99 – unless supermarkets like Tesco or Morrisons start their crazy deals again.

What are your thoughts on the price tag? Considering the success of Modern Warfare 2, and the fact that everyone bought it despite its high price – it looks likely that gamers will do the same thing for Black Ops.

Zombie Mode hasn’t been confirmed for the game yet, but if and when it is – I wouldn’t mind paying this price for the game. Maybe you think differently?

Are you prepared to pay this retail price for the game, or is it too expensive for you? Give us your thoughts on this.

    I don't get it…all PS3/XBOX360 games are usually 60 bucks. Why is this an issue at all?

    • Connor

      They are not 60 bucks each unless the Ancient or Pre-owned. For a new game this is a great price $100 bucks for the standard and $120 for hardened (limited) in JB HI-FI. So i dont no were your buying you games but i recommend JB HI-FI over every other shop i no.

      lol dude where the hell have you been? All of you are retarded, this article concerns pc games too. Almost no pc games are ever 60 bucks for many years now.

      • TheMaker

        haha dude i got a great suggestion for ya, how about you use your computer for educational or work use and buy a freakin xbox or ps3, hint hint saves u a load of bucks when you are going to purchase a game

        • Dat

          Maybe because pc gamers see 360s and PS3s as consoles that are built to barely run the game, that's what I think when i play 360 sometimes(Saving up for pc)

  • Ali

    £54.99 is USD $83.

    So we pay $83 for a game you guys pay $60 for. You see why we're annoyed?

    I am perplexed as well…where's the beef???????

    All those saying 'Whats the big deal", should probably put the butter and jam on their toast rather than on their eyes before reading anything including this article.

    As Ali said, £54.99 equates to $83 so it IS a big deal for UK and European consumers. Not everyone on this planet lives in the USA

  • Zane

    Don't really get this article since all games are 60 bucks. But as long as it has zombies ill pay 100 bucks for this game

    If you live in the UK, buy it off steam. Not only am I certain the regular price will be cheaper, but buy it as a 4-pack and each person gets an additional $10 off. And also, steam isn't racist towards different countries.

  • jackk

    Very bright minds are commenting herr( btw to make it easier I will say its sarcasm)

  • Chris

    I can wait for price drop (and I will) … its only a game!

  • guest

    $60 is way to much money for a game but its onely that much cause _ _ _ peopel pay that if every one wouled wate till there like $30 to buy them then they have to bring the price to that to sell games.

  • guest

    Who the hell bought mw2 for more than £30?! it was in Sainsbury's for £25 on release day – I went in during my lunch-hour and they still had tons of copies for ps3 an 360.

  • Guest

    $60 USD is 120 in my country:(

  • logan

    get a life its 40 where i come from and i come from USA

  • James

    Black ops for PC… £39.99, i havent bought it for that because other PC games are like 19.99 or 29.99 and in the rare case.. 34.99.

    I have no idea what the company is trying to pull but i for one wont buy the game till they drop it by atleast 5 quid.. it boils my effing blood.

    Decent games like bad company 2 are £20… pleaseee sort the pricing of ur dry game.
